Aurora Burning

(The Aurora Cycle)

Amie Kaufman Jay Kristoff

The second instalment in the bestselling Aurora Cycle series

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.

Nonstop action, romance, and a few satisfying surprises…. A thrilling space epic that will fly off the shelves.” Kirkus Reviews

“A positively explosive cliff-hanger end will have readers on the hook for book three.” Booklist


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


'Fabulous sci-fi fantasy. It is thrilling, bursting with colourful characters, novel settings and ingenious technologies… A fabulous science fiction adventure that will entertain and amuse young people.’

School Librarian

‘The characters are as lovable as the first book, if not more so… There was constant action, from the first page until the last. This book is certainly not boring… it’s a great sci-fi story and there’s lots going on to keep you entertained.’
