Amie Kaufman, Jay Kristoff
From the New York Times bestselling co-authors of the Illuminae Files comes the second book in the epic Aurora Cycle series about a squad of misfits, losers and discipline cases who just might be the galaxy’s best hope for survival.
Our heroes are back . . . kind of.
First, the bad news: An ancient evil – you know, your standard consume-all-life-in-the-galaxy deal – is about to be unleashed.
The good news? Squad 312 is standing by to save the day.
They’ve just got to take care of a few small distractions first.
Like the cadre of illegit GIA who’ll stop at nothing to get their hands on Auri.
Or Kal’s long-lost sister, who’s not exactly happy to see her baby brother, and has a Syldrathi army at her back.
With half the known galaxy on their tails, Squad 312 has never felt so wanted.
Shocking revelations, bank heists, mysterious gifts, inappropriately tight bodysuits and an epic firefight will determine the fate of the Aurora Legion’s most unforgettable heroes.
And maybe the rest of the galaxy as well.
Praise for Aurora Rising: 'Aurora Rising is to sci-fi what Stranger Things is to the cinema of the eighties - a fusion of everything you love about the genre that adds up into something completely fresh.' Samantha Shannon, author of The Priory of the Orange Tree 'A beyond epic space adventure that will make a sci-fi fan out of anyone. Every page is filled with as much clever sarcasm as there is nail-biting action. I can't wait to see where our ragtag crew end up next!' Alexandra Christo, author of To Kill a Kingdom and Into the Crooked Place 'Chock full of sarky humour.' SFX 'This intergalactic space opera has it all: action, thrills, suspense, laughs, and all the feels.' Kirkus, starred review 'Rotating perspectives and never-flagging energy propel this narrative forward, which, if it wasn't compelling enough on its own, is given illustrious life by its ragtag, always-at-odds cast.' Booklist, starred review 'Exciting...[an] entertaining space opera.' Publishers Weekly
