Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
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 favourite 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 Tyler Jones and his spaceship full of misfit cadets stumbled across the Hadfield, a long-lost colony ship, and Aurora Jie-Lin O'Malley, its only survivor, frozen in cryo-sleep in Aurora Rising (2019), they thought they'd solved a two-century-old puzzle and pulled a girl out of time. They didn't think they would awaken an ancient evil—one that's already cost them one member of their crew—or earn the enmity of the whole galaxy. In this sequel, they're already on the run when they stumble across a group of warrior Syldrathi that includes Kal's sister, a broody combat strategist who's not particularly happy to see him. It seems like time may be up for this squad, until the Hadfield mysteriously reappears, Auri's strange powers start to grow, and a set of coincidences puts them on a course that seems almost predetermined. Kaufman and Kristoff have settled into their characters' distinct voices, including that of the cheerful uniglass, which provides backstory and insight into the galaxy's rules. A positively explosive cliff-hanger end will have readers on the hook for book three.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Kaufman and Kristoff already have one NYT best-selling series together under their belts (The Illuminae Files), and the Aurora Cycle is catnip for the sf audience. Series fans are already eager. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
