Aurora's End
Aurora's End | Amie Kaufman, Jay Kristoff
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 team has one last chance to rewrite theirs. 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.

For once I enjoyed the time travel..it connected the dots. I don't like thinking that one person's disappearance caused the end of humanity. Arrogance. The end was such a disappointment.

So many loved this book. However, I found it disappointing. The pacing felt off on this one. Some parts moved very quick and others dragged and felt heavy. The ending was almost anticlimactic. It left me wondering if the authors just can out of steam. 2.5/3 ⭐️

julesG Agree! 5mo
AmandaBlaze I haven't read this yet, but agree concerning Book 2. I just couldn't get into this series as much as Illuminae Files. Still want to read whatever they create next. 5mo

I rated each of the three books 3½⭐so that makes for an obvious overall Rating of 3½⭐ for the Series
I wish I could say I loved this series as much as the Illuminae Files…but sadly it just didn‘t grab me like that. My significant issue with this series is how some situations are dragged out for so long that they become tedious. Other than that…the characters are super likable & diverse. I did like how everything tied together at the end.

julesG I thought the narration was great, but the story was just mediocre. 11mo

Was off work early today so got to spend a good chunk of time #audiocrocheting, which was perfect since I was worried I wouldn‘t get to finish my library book before it was due to return! I finished with plenty of time to spare so avoided what would‘ve been a maddening 20 week wait to read the last quarter of the book. I was a bit put off at the beginning of the first book but I gave it a chance & once I got into it, I really enjoyed this series!

I loved this series so much that I named my dog Aurora Jie-Lin! Lol I ended up listening to the audiobook because I (flex) didn't wanna read my autographed copy. Unfortunately, I don't always enjoy the audio as much as the book. (Because I have a hard time paying attention) I give 4/5👽

What a great finale! At first there was a bit too much lovey-dovey for me, but that soon came down to an more than acceptable amount. From that moment on I couldn't stop reading. For me the best part of the whole trilogy. Kaufman and Kristoff did a great job by developing the characters and their relationships, and the main plot of the story is so captivating!

Finished this trilogy; overall I enjoyed this series: I loved all the Star Trek “Easter Eggs “ - Janeway Station : wink wink 😉. It‘s unapologetically YA so the characters are good looking and super talented and prone to insta love. It‘s a fast paced and I had a hard time putting the ebooks down .Recommended to fans of the Illuminae Files

I enjoyed the final book in this series, we find out about squad 312, all the team and what happened at the end of book two. There is a recap at the beginning about what did happen in the first two books. I found this very good as it was such a long time since I read it. I was happy with the ending and all the explanations given.

My favorite thing about the first two book was the banter between the characters and the found family trope. Maybe I was just too excited to read this, but I was ultimately disappointed. I enjoyed it, but it lacked much of what I found charming in the previous books and took me a couple weeks to get through 😩

julesG Same. It felt like a middle book not the end of a trilogy. 12mo

So very thankful this series includes a "Things You Should Know" at the beginning so I don't have to reread the previous book - I wish more series would do this!! My brain is getting too old to remember everything I used to...

The conclusion to this trilogy came in at the library this week and I jumped right in as I have been yearning to find out how everything comes together!! This was one of those books that flirts with the "this is way too complicated to make sense" line, but I think they overall pulled it off haha I love the characters and the snark and definitely plan to reread this series someday!!

Ruthiella It‘s so satisfying to finish up a trilogy! 😀 13mo

I swear to god. This book is SO good! Honestly, if we put aside the fact that I'm a emotional mess right now, you could say that I really enjoyed this book. I sobbed so many times through out the book, but it was totally worth it! I'm very happy with the ending of this book and so it get's: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐.

We the legion.
We the light.
Burning bright, against the night.

Where do I even start? I‘ve been waiting on this book for MONTHS and it was every bit as amazing as I though it would be. I loved the writing and the characters so much. It was great to read the ending of the squad‘s story and definitely my favorite series. My dad said he‘s never seen me cry over books as much as I have over this series and I think that summarizes my experience pretty well. It‘s beautiful. It‘s emotional. It‘s the perfect ending.

Lovelylottereader I realize I forgot to put my rating! Here it is: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 13mo
