This review was originally posted on Once Upon a Chapter






Aurora Rising by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman was a June COYER book club pick and I'd been meaning to get to it. When it was picked for book club it seemed as good a time as any to read it.



Honestly the plot is what dragged this down one star for me. There's a lot of time spent learning all the different species and parts of their cultures in the beginning and in the middle of the story. It almost gets a little overwhelming and I *think* that's the point.



It also felt very stutter stop pacing to me. Hurry up to get to a place to sit and wait, then hurry again. When the action was going though it was fantastic. There were also great plot twists; some of them I saw coming but others I didn't.



I really loved most of the characters. Cat is the one I probably disliked the most. Honestly Tyler was the second. For some reason in this book I've aligned more with Kal, Finian, and Zila then with the other hot shots of the Squad.



I liked Aurora but I didn't see her as a strong character. I could only think of her as someone who lost everything. I'm hoping in the second book she gets more answers about her past and her present.



It was a little slow to start for me and thoroughly confusing at times but I really enjoyed it!

I try to express only my most honest opinion in a spoiler-free way. Unfortunately, there is still always a risk of slight spoilers despite my best efforts. If you feel something in my review is a spoiler please let me know. Thank you.

Loved this book so much. It was gripping from the very beginning. Each and every character has there own different and interesting personalities. The character and world-building were amazing and easy to visualize. I put off reading this book for almost a year since I first thought of reading it. I can't believe I went a year of my life longer not knowing this story. My copy of the second book is already on its way and I can't wait to dive in. And that ending, OMG. This book had me in tears so bad that I had to stop for a few minutes cause I couldn't see the words to keep reading. This book earned its 5-star rating. ( )

It could do without the Maker and ignorance of evolution, and every now and then it felt like reading a bunch of different sci-fi concepts merged together, but I'm still looking forward to reading Book #2. ( )

Overall I liked the story. Wish I could give this one an extra half star. Anyway, the plot was good and there was lots of great characters to cheer for. However, there were a few things that did not work for me.

First, there was a lot of internal dialogue that I could have done without. A little was necessary to understand the character but too much made the story feel forced. In addition, at the end there was no decontamination of suits. I get this is not hard science fiction but when somethings are so obvious, even to me, I just want to scream in frustration. In my opinion, even space opera needs to be at least plausible.

Despite the two things that bugged me about this book, I liked it enough to want to read book two. I recommend but with some reservations. ( )

Re-read. I pretty much listened to this nonstop on Saturday and Sunday. It was just as good the second time around. I can't get over how enthralled I was the whole time. I just wanted to know more -- especially about our violet-eyed BB. ( )
