Staff Reviews


It's not every day I find a Young Adult Sci-fi novel that actually keeps me engaged and entertained the whole way through. From start to finish, I found myself turning the page at lightning speed; trying to figure out what was going to happen next. The characters are top-notch and so real; I kind of want to be their best friend. This YA novel has everything you could want from action packed fight scenes, to laugh out loud dialogue, it's really no wonder I finished it in a day. — Cassidy Washburn

Description


From the New York Times and internationally bestselling authors of the Illuminae Files comes a new science-fiction epic. . . .

The year is 2380, and the graduating cadets of Aurora Academy are being assigned their first missions. Star pupil Tyler Jones is ready to recruit the squad of his dreams, but his own boneheaded heroism sees him stuck with the dregs nobody else in the academy would touch . . .

A cocky diplomat with a black belt in sarcasm
A sociopath scientist with a fondness for shooting her bunkmates
A smart-ass tech whiz with the galaxy's biggest chip on his shoulder
An alien warrior with anger-management issues
A tomboy pilot who's totally not into him, in case you were wondering

And Ty's squad isn't even his biggest problem—that'd be Aurora Jie-Lin O'Malley, the girl he's just rescued from interdimensional space. Trapped in cryo-sleep for two centuries, Auri is a girl out of time and out of her depth. But she could be the catalyst that starts a war millions of years in the making, and Tyler's squad of losers, discipline cases, and misfits might just be the last hope for the entire galaxy.

NOBODY PANIC.

Praise For…


"This intergalactic space opera has it all: action, thrills, suspense, laughs, and all the feels."—Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

"Rotating perspectives and never-flagging energy propel this narrative forward, which, if it wasn't compelling enough on its own, is given illustrious life by its ragtag, always-at-odds cast."—Booklist, Starred Review
