Shoot Okay Everyone s heard the famous quote, Be yourself everyone else is already taken, which is said to be by Oscar Wilde but is it, really the first book of this series needed to hear it, too and did, bc we went from trying so hard to be cool and a poor copy of Guardians of the Galaxy that nothing ends up being developed enough to stand out of the page to a solid, fun read that sheart than empty bravado By focusi , I ll get to the point Aurora Burning is simply so much better written than Aurora Rising The writing is still comic with its moment of occasional beauty but it manages to come off as less stupid yes there are times when characters are made to act like idiots for the sake of a laugh, but they re few The atmosphere building has improved and it FEELS like space And, there are moments of bonding that finally make the squad feel like a group It sgenuine, for the lack of a better word Plus, the science is even paid attention to remember the two times in book one where inertia was mistaken for gravity Well, you re not gonna believe this but in the sequel, inertia and gravity were used in a single sentence together without messing up the definition of either I kid you not What s , the characters type of humour is less identical, and they manage to claim their own to the point where I can point out one of their responses and say they are reacting in character shocking, I know So is the fact that the chapters voices are no longer that flat for me to confuse who s POV I m reading .Okay I concede your point She is still a trope without flesh and blood lacks distinction and a solid personality Though she does take a few steps forward we get thoughts and inner struggles, even some little passions, but perhaps not as deep or often as her predicament supposed sensitive personality would call for Most of the time, it s as if she doesn t even have those feelings, because her actions, reactions and emotions don t reflect said struggles But, while lacking in the distinction department, Aurora does grow some backbone and changes enough for her existence to not be a torture to me any I do wish someone would just slit her throat though Then there s Zilla wh NONO that s exactly what I want to address the word sociopath is not used in this book even once , I so am not I am She is finallypresent and since I wasn t annoyed by the incorrect label the authors had insisted on before, I could enjoy her freely and man did I do just that With the help of details that get the proper attention e.g the earrings as well as digging into her past and present struggles and emotions, she ends up standing out, getting her own stage to shine on on multiple occasions Her intelligence and practicality is captured accurately, and I just love her The way Fin had affected her, how she grappled with the humourMY HEART And my boy Finian de Seel I loved him before, but AR didn t stand out for me in any way other than loving to hate it as you re aware, since that s you and now he s one of my fave characters I love AB for simply giving him his due, his moments to glow The dive into his vulnerabilities shows precisely why the test said I was him His relationship with literally every single one of the characters was the most precious thing ever And Finian Scarlett OTP Reminds me so much of Stydia from Teen Wolf Trust me, even our depthless Bitch Queen becomes an adorable, genuine Bitch Queen, which is, like, the best combination everAbout that He kinda loses hisindividuality It s as if he s journey, his beautiful fight with his Enemy Within, his wisdom, it all fades into the background and his sole purpose for existing becomes circling around Aurora who is a poor excuse of an MC or sidekick, really and undeserving of this jewel of a boy I really like the idea of the Pull, but, well, she s bland, so they re bland together, so he becomes bland, and now I m sadhides behind desk MARY CALM DOWN I know I do just breathe Instead I have some good newsSo remember wasted potential dimples walking Tyler Jones There s NOobjectification He s allowed to becomethan Mr Dimples, and his own character gets to shine through It s a weak shine at first, but he gets there Plus, he starts to become an actual leader, not the fake, so not an Alpha the authors had defined before I really, really like him now And it s all thanks to a new character we meet who you ll just adoooooreeeee Meet Saedii, the Ultimate Angry Vengeful Power And Dominance Oriented Bitch Queen who will just speak to your darker side on a primal level And to tell you a secret, view spoiler Saedii Ty OTP 2, because she s the one who pushes Ty to become this awesome version of himself hide spoiler smiles sweetly Find out in a year ,And this is where we circle back right to the speech I started with and you, quite impolitely, interrupted With Aurora Burning, this trilogy stopped trying so hard to be cool, and started being itself And because of that, it succeeded in becoming genuine and real and developed in all the ways we talked about Yes, the elements taken from GotG remain, but the plot and scenes are less unoriginal, andfun My only complaint of the story is the ending, which is a cliffhanger gone wrong But I m content it certainly made me feel and shed some tears So, dear past me, did you get your answer, Oh please do, I do too You re me

for the killer cliffhanger at the end of this book Final review, first posted on Fantasy Literature Aurora Burning, the second book in Amie Kaufman s and Jay Kristoff s young adult SF AURORA CYCLE series, follows the tension filled, nonstop space adventures of the teenage crew of Squad 312, recent graduates of the Aurora Academy In the first book, Aurora Rising, the crew visited the forbidden planet of Octavia III and discovered, to their horror, that an alien hivemind, called the Ra haam, has taken over the planet and is bent, Borg like, on assimilating all intelligent life in the galaxy or, perhaps,like the group consciousness alien in Isaac Asimov s Misbegotten Missionary aka Green Patches In fact, the Ra haam have already infiltrated the command of the Global Intelligence Agency.Now the six remaining members of the Longbow s crew are regrouping after losing one of their members to the Ra haam and barely escaping Octavia III As Tyler and Scarlett Jones try to sell their Longbow in a lawless space station, they see a media broadcast blaming their crew for a massacre of thousands of people Instantly the crew is on the run again, trying to evade both the local crime gangs and the infected GIA agents who are trying to recapture Auri, their crewmate who has been gifted with some supernatural powers by another race of aliens who fought the Ra haam long ago powers that she hasn t learned to control at all yet.Life for Tyler and his crew only getsexciting in a not so stupendous way when the sister of Kai another crew member tracks him down to insist that Kai rejoin their ultra violent Syldrathi Warbreed Cabal You know, the group responsible for blowing up the Syldrathi planet s sun and killing ten billion of their people, led by the man called Starslayer But the members of Squad 312 are determined to save the galaxy from the Ra haam threat, even if the galaxy is being uncooperative Aurora Burning is a jet propelled space adventure for young adult readers, as Tyler, Scarlett, Auri, Kai, Finian and Zila scramble from one crisis to the next In the process, Auri finds outabout her powers as the Trigger who has the ability to stop the Ra haam threat, her boyfriend Kai finds that it s not so easy to escape his past as part of a Syldrathi Warbreed family, and Tyler gets up close and personal with Kai s hardcore sister Saedii and her monstrous drakkan, a dragon like beast that has all the odds in its favor when Tyler is forced into a death match with it There are also some unexpectedly poignant flashbacks to Zila s past, clarifying why she works so hard to suppress all her feelings.In most ways, I liked Aurora Burning even better than Aurora Rising The snarky humor is still present, but balanced by deeper emotions and insights into the pasts and the motivations of the crew The plot felt a lotcohesive and original, and there are a few fantastic twists of the kind I like unexpected but consistent with the overall plot And I was completely enthralled by some mysterious gifts that the crew receives from some secret helpers bizarre but helpful gifts that seem to indicate that someone, somewhere, is either time traveling or foreseeing their future It s a fascinating plot element and I can t wait to get the full explanation for it.On the flip side, I was never all that convinced by Auri s and Kai s romance, though it plays a central role in the plot, or by the crew s overreaction in my opinion to a surprising and highly negative fact that surfaces very late in the story I simply couldn t believe that they would all react the way they did And son of a biscuit Auri s favorite expression , Aurora Burning might just have the worst cliffhanger in the entire history of the universe Kaufman and Kristoff must have worked really hard to come up with a cliffhanger of that scope and magnitude It s almost impressive, if I didn t find it so vexing.With or without maddening cliffhangers, I m still definitely on board for book three of the AURORA CYCLE It s a fun, action packed series and the books are quick reads that are hard to put down.Thanks to the publisher for the NetGalley ARC 1 Aurora

Kristoff Amie Kaufman s stories are the characters and Squad 312 really put me through the wringer in this one withemotional and dramatic plot threads and reveals keeping my on the edge of my seat and my heart in my throat I love how the characters really lean into stereotypes in this series, from the blonde haired, blue eyed hero, Tyler Jones to the muscular, stoic, hot space elf, Kaliis, there is a strong emphasis on the character archetypes that each member of Squad 312 represent This is normally something that I would hate and deem unoriginal, but for some reason in this series it just works for me and adds an extra level of comedy to what is otherwise a pretty bleak story.The only criticism I could really give this book is that the entirety of the plot rests on a reveal that has been glaringly obvious to me since the beginning of book one I m not sure if it s just me as I do have an uncanny ability to spot foreshadowing but when I discovered that the big reveal was something I d spotted from the get go, I was a tad underwhelmed.Overall though, Aurora Burning was a fast paced, high action page turner full of twists and turns and characters that I absolutely love WHAT WAS THAT

the romantic chemistry between two of the characters AT ALL and their love scenes made me want to puke The story did pick up in the last third though, and that ending how dare they leave us hanging like that I have so many questions that I want answers to, so I ll definitely be reading the last book when it comes out.trigger warnings death of loved ones in the past , mention of genocide against
