Description

From the New York Times and internationally best-selling authors of the Illuminae Files comes a new science-fiction epic....

The year is 2380, and the graduating cadets of Aurora Academy are being assigned their first missions. Star pupil Tyler Jones is ready to recruit the squad of his dreams, but his own boneheaded heroism sees him stuck with the dregs nobody else in the academy would touch....

A cocky diplomat with a black belt in sarcasm. 

A sociopath scientist with a fondness for shooting her bunkmates. 

A smart-ass tech whiz with the galaxy's biggest chip on his shoulder. 

An alien warrior with anger-management issues. 

A tomboy pilot who's totally not into him, in case you were wondering. 

And Ty's squad isn't even his biggest problem - that'd be Aurora Jie-Lin O'Malley, the girl he's just rescued from interdimensional space. Trapped in cryo-sleep for two centuries, Auri is a girl out of time and out of her depth. But she could be the catalyst that starts a war millions of years in the making, and Tyler's squad of losers, discipline cases, and misfits might just be the last hope for the entire galaxy. 

Nobody panic.

Full cast makes this audio

This was a great listen. There's a full cast plus sound effects, so it almost felt like listening to a movie. The plot was great and action packed with no dull moments. I was so invested in the story and characters and didn't want it to end!

Fun, fast paced space adventure!

Loved it! The story was fast paced, the space crew of misfits was hilarious, and the voices in this full cast production were amazing! If you loved Illuminae Files or Guardians of the Galaxy, definitely give this new space series a listen!

What a fantastic startup a new series!

So my middle schooler is a huge fan of the authors. It took me so long to read his last recommendation that I actually got this audiobook pretty quickly and I was not disappointed! The story draws you immediately. I love how stories told from the first person allow the reader to really be inside the character’s mind. The downside, generally, is that you have flawed narrator. Everything is told from a single perspective and you lose out on getting all that awesome insight into the other characters. This story allows you to see things from each of the main characters’ perspectives as each chapter is told by a different character. The full cast narration really helps you to move from one character to the next.

My one complaint is that the narrators were inconsistent on how they said “Auri”. It’s small, only happened a handful of times, but every time I heard “Ari” instead of “Auri”, I cringed a bit.

An Excellent Start to a New Series

I loved every minute of this book! I also love when audiobooks do full-casts, which just adds so much to each character while listening! I highly recommend this book!

Amazing fun sci-fi!!

Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff have done it again!! All the stars to this brilliant book!

If you enjoyed The Illuminae Files, you are going to love the Aurora Cycle series. This was kind of a Firefly meets Six of Crows with Legolas from Lord of the Rings thrown in and it was phenomenal! As with the Illuminae Files, I became so dang attached to this group of misfits who are thrown together under the command of Mr. Perfect, Tyler.

Cat is the Mohawk haired, tatooed smart-ass pilot (the Ace). Scar is Tyler's beautiful smart-ass twin sister in charge of diplomacy (the Face). Zila, the odd quiet genius and medic (the Brain). Finian, the smart-ass alien Betraskan mechanic (the Gearhead), and Kal, the Legolas-looking elf-looking alien Syldrathi warrior (the Tank). Together, the six form Squad 312.

Enter Aurora, or Auri, who was rescued by Tyler from a dead colonist ship where she had been in a cryogenic tank for over 200 years. The squad ends up with Auri and from there, the craziness just keeps on keeping on. The pace, the twists, the turns, the action... Never. Stops!

This book could easily be one of my top favs of 2019, and how the heck am I going to be able to wait for book 2!?

Update after my reread by audiobook: This audiobook featuring an entire cast was AMAZING!! Every single character was spot on perfection for their character! The sound effects were so fun! This will be one of my go to audiobooks and I’m sure I’ll listen to it again and again!!

Top of 2019

I loved this book. I have not read anything like this in a long time, where I was so engaged. I wanted to read the entire series right now. I can’t wait for the rest to come out.

Brilliant! Couldn't stop listening!

I bought this story 2 days ago and just now finished. I couldn't stop listening. The writing style is detailed, informative and beautiful. I fell in love with every member of the squad and enjoyed their points of views throughout their journey. I really enjoyed each of the characters unique voices that paired perfectly with their character's personality. The story was a roller coaster! There is always going to be a turn or a twist you don't expect and if you did you couldn't believe what actually happen... listen to the book. You'll understand.

Excellent story, but a little overly emotive

Overall I enjoyed this book....though it did spend more time than I prefer exploring what individual characters were feeling at almost any particular moment. The narration was first person, jumping from character to character by the chapter. This was done extremely well and really helped me, as a reader, to connect with the characters. But the YA target audience was in full bloom with all the extra time devoted to what each character felt. By about 1/3 of the way into the book there came a place in most chapters where I wanted to yell, "Just get on with it!" because so much time/space was dedicated to exploring any given character's feelings at that moment.

Besides that, excellent writing and pacing. The characters came across as well thought out and I found myself caring about all of them by the end, which is the mark of a good writer in my book. Though this is the first book in the series, a large portion of the conflicts that are set up early on in the book are resolved (to a lesser or greater degree) by the end of the book. It definitely ends on a note which sets the stage for a continuation of the series, but there is clear resolution to the plot lines of this book.

The cast did an awesome job with the narration. Voices of characters were consistent, even from the perspectives of different characters, which meant a different narrator could be doing a certain character's voice at any time. The sound effects were, for the most part decent. Though there were a few surrounding the computer entries that hedged on being too shrill. It would behoove the sound engineers to remember that most people are listening to these recordings via headphones and thusly very high-pitched tones come across very harshly, especially when their volume is the same or louder than the narrators. It was annoying but it didn't really detract too much from the listening experience.

As for the worldview, there are religious tones, but the religion is ambiguously deistic, but not really concretely attached to a recognizable religion (like Christianity or Islam). There is a decent amount of relationship drama (she likes him, he may like her...blah, blah, blah), but no explicit sexual interactions. There is an allusion to a few of the main characters having had sex in the past (with each other), and the general approach to sexuality is "whatever goes". The narrative doesn't really preach or deal with sexual preferences overtly, but at least one character is presented as ambiguously bi-sexual. I don't think there's too much in there that would offend anyone, but it's always good for parents to be aware of how things are presented in the books they're reading. I did like that moral impact of killing someone was touched upon.

So, overall, fun book. I'll probably eventually snag the next in the series when I feel like I can handle the emotive excursions in the narrative. Because the premise and story were excellent and I'm pretty hooked as far as wanting to see what happens next to the characters.
