Aurora Burning by Amy Kaufman & Jay Kristoff | Spoilery Book Review

Aurora Burning Book Review 2020 Header - Aurora Burning by Amy Kaufman & Jay Kristoff | Spoilery Book Review

Hai Beautiful! This one fell slightly short… I’m not gonna lie, I will purchase and read anything written by Amie or Jay either individually or as a collaborative duo. So even though Aurora Rising, didn’t live up to my expectations set by the Illuminae Files, there was something unique and carefree to the story that I loved it all the same. Blurb: Our heroes are back… kind of. From the bestselling co-authors of the Illuminae Files comes the second book in […]

It is absolutely impossible to […]
