Finally!!!! I finished it!! Reading Aurora burning has been some sort of forever project for me this month.
Aurora Burning is the second book in The Aurora Cycle series written by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff.
I have not read anything else, but I have not read Aurora either. Now I had four days vacation, thanks to Midsummer festivities in Finland, and I finally finished the book yesterday.
For me, Aurora burning was good YA read. Nothing extraordinary but it was not boring either.
The writing was excellent, characters loveable and plot interesting. Sci-Fi will stay as one of my fave genres of all time in the future. I am waiting for the next book of the series with anticipation as there was enormous cut ”before nothing happens” moment in the end.
I don’t want to spoil the plot, but one thing bothers me, and that’s how easily we lose our faith and trust in others. I mean, there are and will be things; You can not say to anyone, or you’ll be ashamed to share. In books, those things escalate, and suddenly everyone hates the person who kept secrets.
Does this happen in real life, or is this just a book thing?
About the synopsis of Aurora burning:
Our heroes are back… kind of. From the bestselling co-authors of the Illuminae Files comes the second book in the epic series about a squad of misfits, losers, and discipline cases who just might be the galaxy’s best hope for survival.
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 clan of gremps who’d like to rearrange their favorite faces.
And the cadre of illegit GIA agents with creepy flowers where their eyes used to be, who’ll stop at nothing to get their hands on Auri.
Then there’s 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.
When they learn the Hadfield has been found, it’s time to come out of hiding. Two centuries ago, the colony ship vanished, leaving Auri as its sole survivor. Now, its black box might be what saves them. But time is short, and if Auri can’t learn to master her powers as a Trigger, the squad and all their admirers are going to be deader than the Great Ultrasaur of Abraaxis IV.
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.
