Review: Aurora Burning by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

I will start off this review with a complaint. This is a giant complaint (one that should be taken very seriously) and one I think everyone should keep in mind while reading – it makes you need book three immediately and alas we are at least a year away. In typical Kaufman and Kristoff, we get a giant cliffhanger that then sent me into a spiral of emotion I was not prepared for – AT ALL. I read the eBook version and I just sat there and tapped my screen over and over while saying out loud, ‘ No… wait. There’s something wrong with my version… Where’s the rest?’. Nope. No more. Just pain.

In all seriousness, this is a fantastic book. It’s not often that the sophomore book of a series is better than the first, but this one is hands down even better. Everything I loved about the first book is back in spades, except an alive version of Cat of course (too soon?), and the authors prevent it from getting stale. I love the banter and humor. The characters are all extremely likable even in their less-desirable moments and I was not ready to say goodbye to them at the end. You truly feel like you could be part of the squad while reading this. I tried to pick a favorite and then as soon as the point of view changed, I had a new favorite. The backstories we learned about most of the characters helped to suck me in even further and I found myself praying to the Makers that all my babies stayed safe.

I don’t want to give anything away, because there are SO many twists and turns, but just buckle up for a fun and engaging read.
