Aurora Burning (The Aurora Cycle)

Aurora Burning (The Aurora Cycle)

Author: Amie Kaufman, Jay Kristoff Format: Hardback Release Date: 07/05/2020

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 clan of gremps who'd like to rearrange their favorite faces. And the cadre of illegit GIA agents with creepy flowers where their eyes used to be, who'll stop at nothing to get their hands on Auri. Then there's 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. When they learn the Hadfield has been found, it's time to come out of hiding. Two centuries ago the colony ship vanished, leaving Auri as its sole survivor. Now, its black box might be what saves them-but time is short, and if Auri can't learn to master her powers as a Trigger, the squad and all their admirers are going to be deader than the Great Ultrasaur of Abraaxis IV. 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.

No matter what the people of Wakanda do, they can't save them. And their supply is running short.

Leek and Cecil will do anything to find their way back to each other-even if it means facing enormous odds and seemingly insurmountable obstacles. To escape from Hat, Leek must sail across the Great Ink, travel beyond the Jungle Prime Evil, trek through the Grottos of Ill Repute, and enter the heart of all bad luck: the fortress of the black cats itself. All while Cecil heads out on an adventure of his own to find the hard-heartened magician, whose tricks seem to have turned Cecil's life upside down.
