The Book

From the New York Times and internationally bestselling authors of The Illuminae Files comes a new science fiction epic...



It's 2380 and the graduating students of Aurora Academy are being assigned their first missions. Tyler Jones has been a star pupil who hopes to recruit the squad of his dreams but ends up with a mixed and volatile crew.


And Ty's squad isn't even his biggest problem - that'd be Aurora Jie-Lin O'Malley, the girl he's just rescued from interdimensional space. Trapped in cryo-sleep for two centuries, Auri is a girl out of time and out of her depth. But she could be the catalyst that starts a war millions of years in the making, and Tyler's squad of losers, discipline-cases and misfits might just be the last hope for the entire galaxy.

Vividly told in the seven voices of the team members, this is fast-paced, action-packed, wickedly humorous and fabulously entertaining. Described by one online fan as 'a mystery with tons of action. A kind of thriller on steroids with a fantasy feel.'

Reviews

'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

'Exciting...[an] entertaining space opera.'

- Publishers Weekly

'The brains behind the Illuminae Files team up for another high-concept, higher-stakes sf adventure. Rotating perspectives and never-flagging energy propel this narrative forward, which, if it weren't compelling enough on its own, is given illustrious life by its ragtag, always-at-odds cast.' 

- Booklist starred review

'Chock full of sarky humour.'

- SFX Magazine

'This intergalactic space opera has it all: action, thrills, suspense, laughs, and all the feels.'

- Kirkus starred review

'A glorious explosion of everything you love about sci-fi.'

- 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

'A battlestar-brilliant, Six of Crows ride! Fantastic world-building, action, tech, romance & fun (I esp enjoyed alien detail & banter)... An intergalactic rocket of a book.'

- Michelle Kenney, author of Book of Fire

Praise for The Illuminae Files:

'It certainly filled the Battlestar Galactica-shaped hole in my heart.' Victoria Aveyard, bestselling author of The Red Queen

'Brace yourself. You're about to be immersed in a mindscape that you'll never want to leave.' Marie Lu, author of Legend

'A fantastically fun ride.' MTV
