Aurora's End

When we last saw Squad 312, they were working together seamlessly 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—maybe two—to rewrite theirs.

In this highly anticipated finale, our favorite team of losers, discipline cases, and misfits find themselves lost, separated, and in way over their heads. There’s Zila, Fin, Scarlett, and Magellan, making friends, making enemies, and doing their best to make history. There’s Tyler, Kal, and Auri, attempting to unite two of the galaxy’s most hated villains. And then there’s the galaxy, which is not doing too great. Saving it will require a miracle, and Squad 312 is fresh out of those.

Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff are the New York Times bestselling co-authors of the Illuminae Files and the Aurora Cycle. Amie has also co-written (with Meagan Spooner) the Starbound and the Unearthed trilogies. Jay is the author of the LIFEL1K3 series, as well as the Empire of the Vampire, Nevernight Chronicle, and the Lotus War series for adults. Collectively, Amie and Jay stand 12'5" tall and live in Melbourne, Australia, with two long-suffering spouses, two rescue dogs, and a plentiful supply of caffeine. They met thanks to international taxation law, and stuck together due to a shared love of blowing things up and breaking hearts.
