The Book

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 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.

Reviews

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
