Title: Aurora’s End
Series: The Aurora Cycle #3
Authors: Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman
The squad you love is out of time. Prepare for the thrilling finale in the epic, best-selling Aurora Cycle series about a band of unlikely heroes who just might be the galaxy’s last hope for survival.
Is this the end?
What happens when you ask a bunch of losers, discipline cases, and misfits to save the galaxy from an ancient evil? The ancient evil wins, of course.
Wait. . . . Not. So. Fast.
When we last saw Squad 312, they working together seamlessly (aka, freaking out) as an intergalactic battle raged and an ancient superweapon threatened to obliterate Earth. Everything went horribly wrong, naturally.
But as it turns out, not all endings are endings, and the te4am has one last chance to rewrite thirs. Maybe two. It’s complicated.
Cue Zila, Fin, and Scarlett (and MAGELLAN!): making friends, making enemies, and making history? Sure, no problem
Cue Tyler, Kal, and Auri: uniting with two of the galaxy’s most hated villains? Um, okay. That, too.
Actually saving the galaxy, though?
Now that will take a miracle.
Back with my be’shmai, Kal!!!
Let me get this out the way first. I need to get this off my chest! I know there was a big event at the end of Burning but all I could think of was Aurora and what she did to Kal so going into this, I knew I wasn’t going to forgive her easily!
And then I forgot all about that with this line….
‘I still have riches beyond counting, because I have her.’ I do marvel about how fickle I sometimes!
Anyway…..so now the war is on. On like Kong with the Ra’haam………’How bright the last fire may flare before it is snuffed out entirely.’ But Squad 312 are here and they want to get the job done!
We see the past, the present and we get action, drama and a whole dollop of my fave characters ever.
~ Oh course my Kal.
~ Magellan, the sassy hero.
~ Tyler and Saedii – my actual dark heart. ‘I will see you in the stars’……
~ And Zila will always be my Queen in everything and especially this moment:
‘Are you two spending precious minutes in the middle of a heretofore unheard-of temporal paradox engaging in frivolous presexual activity?’
The last few chapters had me sitting on the edge of my seat, had me tearing up, had me smiling big. It was utterly beautiful.
I’m so sad to say goodbye to Squad 312 but what a great series this was!
