Nicole Nixon More than 1 year ago Another possibly incoherent review coming your way! The more I read this book, the more I realized it had dashes of some of my favorite sci-fi series like Firefly and Doctor Who. The plot is intricate and gripping, truly mind-blowing. It has you believing one thing, only to be proved wrong later at least for me, LOL. I was happy to pick this book up and sad to put it down every time. No complaints here! I am in awe of how realistic and three-dimensional Amie and Jay make their characters.

Do I think I would be a good fit for this squad? Probably not.
I love the connections each character made with each other, and how even the strong are vulnerable. One of my only problems with this book pertained to the romance between two characters. The same could really be said for Zila, too. I expressed some concern about Aurora being biracial half-white, half-Chinese and its nuances being lost of the authors. I mean, I really enjoyed The Illuminae Files, and it was a great joy to meet the two authors last year. This book has everything you loved about The Illuminae Files and so much more! Jay Kristoff and Amy Kaufman put together another sassy, fun, intelligent, sarcastic squad that share a high octane story.
No doubt this series will be as good. I was trying to decide my favorite character, but there are elements in each that I like, but one thing they all share is unfailing, badass loyalty, with just the right amount of sarcasm these two authors are always able to pull off. The story went by so fast, it was over before I was ready to say goodbye until book 2 Ok, so why 4 and not 5 stars?
I really did like this book and 4 stars is very good, however, there were two reasons it is a 4 for me and not a 5. First, toward the end it falls apart a bit when the plot unfolds and we see their mission clearly. I am still working through my thoughts on that. Second, in the same way I love their first two series, in this third series the characters feel familiar, in a good, but also a little worn way.
SkyeWright More than 1 year ago Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher I was able to read this book in exchange for an honest review. Whether the others want it to or not. Aurora went to space decades ago, ready to join her father in a period when space travel was still fairly new. Also, she has dreams that show her the future and her life is in danger.
You know, as these things happen. What follows is a fairly fast paced action book. The story is full of charm, wit, interesting powers, and lots of sarcasm.
There were also a lot of backstory and bigger things were glossed over and hinted at and I really need some of that in the next book s. One word, Zila. SWerbelo More than 1 year ago Such a good book! From the start, it pulls you in and keeps you interested. The characters are great, the story is interesting and the pace was perfect. I cannot wait until the next one! I loved this new squad so much that I think they're my new sci-fi obsession! Pacing This was one of those stories that I couldn't put down even with risk of losing my job the next morning, because no amount of coffee in the known universe was going to wake my tired self up!
But I. I had to know what was going to happen and it was such a easy, fast read. Characters All the characters had unique, individual personalities so even though there were multiple POVs I never felt confused. Aurora was easily a favorite main character, because she felt a little lost among the living with everything going on in her life and I gravitated towards that feeling. Tyler was the sarcastic, hot-shot, handsome squad leader that tried to do what was best for the whole team.
Cat was the angsty pilot who always came off a bit strong. Scarlett was the beauty with brains and sass. She was always talking sass with Cat. Finian was the gearhead and source of dry sarcasm, pointing out the obvious and usually went off on a comedic tangent in most of the conversations. Naturally, he was my absolute favorite. Kal was the squad's strategist, muslce, and resident space elf. I'm hoping more of his personality jumps out at us in the next book. Her short chapters made me laugh out loud and I hope to read more background about her character in the rest of the series!
Overall In short, this book was everything I wanted it to be and bits I couldn't have imagined. If you love the sci-fi genre, I can't recommend it enough! It was absolutely a blast to read with fully developed characters, an amazingly built world, and the sarcasm filled crazy space situations that we all love.
I can't wait to see where the story takes the squad next! I feel ridiculously lucky to be granted an advanced NetGalley copy. I cannot wait to read everything these two authors write in the future! Just like that series, this audiobook also includes a full cast packed with action. First off, no the formatting is not the same as the Illuminae Files.enter
The Aurora (Aurora Saga) by Adrian Fulcher
Each chapter is from the POV of one our 7 characters. Wow, oh wow. The Illuminae Files are fantastic. I was cautiously optimistic. The answer is a resounding YES.
Aurora Like Science Fiction Books
Epic space-ness is in full force with the story from page one. The story kept me on the edge of my seat and I truly hated to have to put the book down. The characters had perfectly defined voices.
- Aurora – Amy Marie!
- Going to the Dogs.
- Aurora Blazing – Jessie Mihalik.
You never had to wonder whose chapter you were reading. The ease of the diversity of the character was fabulous. Making part of the crew alien was a smart choice.
