It's out in April We hope you enjoy it.
Will the book be alt-format like the Illuminae Files? We did that already. There's no sense repeating yourself. At least three. Was this the book formerly known as Andromeda? We changed the title because the book was originally set in the Andromeda galaxy. But space is huuuuuge like really, really big , so we decided to bring it back to our galaxy, the Milky Way. And "the Milky Way Cycle" sounds less like an epic action-adventure in space, and more like a chocolate bar.
Will there be pre-order goodness? We're working out details now, but hold onto your receipts. And thank you for pre-ordering, we love you! Your MC sounds bi-racial. Auri is half Irish, half Chinese. How much gay can we expect in this book? Real space is rainbow-colored. Ours is no exception. Very soon! And we have loads more very exciting news to share on this one, so stay tuned. And thanks for the support. View all 62 comments. The plot puts the fun in fun damentally unremarkable, none of the characters step wholly into the page--except maybe Finian whose shoulders must be strained from hefting the weight of this entire book--and the alternating perspectives are too confusing and unwieldy.
My indifference towards the romantic relationships is utterly inarticulate. Speaking of which, you have SEVEN characters and you decide to pair them all into heterosexual ships? I am bored. I feel like yawning. I am already yawning. I am genuinely so disappointed I don't know what to do with myself.

I'm calling it now, in April: Aurora Rising is going down as my favorite book of Thing is, impossible always comes with a price. Once we walked the dark between the stars, unequaled. What have we become? While the plot is fantastic, the banter is hilarious, and there are some surefire swoon-worthy moments, what really sells Aurora Rising is the rag-tag bunch of misfits in Squad I am endlessly amazed by how well these authors can make their characters feel so real that I want to protect and love them at all costs, forever, and become so attached that I literally miss them when the book ends.
I was born with the taste of blood in my mouth.
I was born with my hands in fists. I was born for war.
That alone is a nearly impossible feat for writers to manage, but it works so well here. We stan. Mostly violent and generally misunderstood, a quietly angsty little soul. Zila is… strangely and incredibly endearing. Oh, and she does freaky, scary, violent things with her mind. When you shine brighter than any constellation in the sky?

I got locked out of ordering it when their site went down that day! They emailed me about the extra copy, I was all over it like white on rice! But I love it anyway! Loved it! Loved the characters!
Hope to read the next two in the trilogy! Look at that cover!! View all 22 comments. View all 34 comments.

Aug 07, Irina rated it really liked it. Do planets choose their stars? Who am I to deny gravity, Aurora? When you shine brighter than any constellation on the sky? I'm left speechless. After I finished the book I needed a few moments to process what I read. Those last pages were what I was expecting from the whole book when I started reading it.
