'Aurora Rising is to sci-fi what Stranger Things is to the cinema of the eighties - a fusion of everything you love about the genre that adds up into something completely fresh.' Samantha Shannon

From the New York Times and internationally bestselling 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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Astounding'

* The National *

'Aurora Rising is to sci-fi what Stranger Things is to the cinema of the eighties - a fusion of everything you love about the genre that adds up into something completely fresh.'

* Samantha Shannon *

'Exciting...[an] entertaining space opera.'

* Publishers Weekly *

'The brains behind the Illuminae Files team up for another high-concept, higher-stakes sf adventure. Rotating perspectives and never-flagging energy propel this narrative forward, which, if it weren't compelling enough on its own, is given illustrious life by its ragtag, always-at-odds cast.'

* Booklist, starred review *

'Chock full of sarky humour.'

* SFX Magazine *

'This intergalactic space opera has it all: action, thrills, suspense, laughs, and all the feels.'

* Kirkus, starred review *

'A glorious explosion of everything you love about sci-fi.'

* Samantha Shannon, author of The Priory of the Orange Tree *

'A beyond epic space adventure that will make a sci-fi fan out of anyone. Every page is filled with as much clever sarcasm as there is nail-biting action. I can't wait to see where our ragtag crew end up next!'

* Alexandra Christo, author of To Kill A Kingdom *

'A battlestar-brilliant, Six of Crows ride! Fantastic world-building, action, tech, romance & fun (I esp enjoyed alien detail & banter)... An intergalactic rocket of a book.'

* Michelle Kenney, author of Book of Fire *

Praise for The Illuminae Files:

'It certainly filled the Battlestar Galactica-shaped hole in my heart.' Victoria Aveyard, bestselling author of The Red Queen

'Brace yourself. You're about to be immersed in a mindscape that you'll never want to leave.' Marie Lu, author of Legend

'A fantastically fun ride.' MTV


'Fast paced, gripping from beginning to end, full of innovative ideas, humour, romance, treachery and adventures.'

* The School Librarian *
