This is going to be an intentionally vague post, because this book is incredibly new and I know some of my followers/ friends are planning on reading it, so I want to keep it as spoiler free as possible.
I love @amiekaufmanauthor and @misterkristoff’s work, and Aurora’s End is, for me, and incredibly satisfying end to an action-packed series. The Aurora Cycle so far has given us a lot to ponder – who left the gifts for squad 312? Why were some of them so handy whilst others were seemingly useless? And how on Terra are the squad supposed to get out of the messes that they were in at the end of book 2? We were left with an earth-shattering cliffhanger at the end of Aurora Burning, and that suspense is basically carried throughout this entire book, with multiple narratives and timelines weaving together to form a very satisfying conclusion. Found family is my favourite trope, and this extends beyond the normal bounds of “a few ragtag rebels get together to save the galaxy” with Squad 312. Great characters, complex and interesting plot, and a fab mix of gripping action and emotive prose reflecting on the nature of family, love and relationships – totally worth the read.

About the Author

She/her. On Whadjuk Noongar land. NSWPRC Officer, Teacher Librarian, English teacher and social media advocate. I've been teaching in Western Sydney for my entire teaching career, and love my job more than I love Neil Gaiman. (That's a lot, in case you're wondering!) I stalk authors (but always politely), fangirl over books, and drink coffee. And one of my guilty prides about my children is that they all have favourite authors. All opinions are my own.
