Genre: YA, Sci-Fi
Rating: DNF ⭐⭐
I was given fair warning by The Book Prescription about this book. But I’ve been on a sci-fi kick and LOVED Illuminae. So I wanted to give this one a try. To be fair, the premise sounded like it would be up my alley and I DID walk into it without any expectations.
Kudos to you @thebookprescription for seeing it through till the end, cause quite frankly, I got tired of hearing about Tyler’s dimples, killer smile, how hot he was and his scar on his right eyebrow. I lasted 6 chapters and could have sworn the story was titled Captain Hotness & his dimples. Seriously. There was not one chapter that didn’t mention them. Or his good looks. Or his tousled hair.
This could have been a great story, cause it was moving quite nicely with Auri and I liked the multiple POV’s. But it was those stupid dimples that got to me.
They were annoying..like Steve Urkle level of annoying!
Still wanna read this one? Then I highly suggest the library.
Have you read it? What did you think?
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 techwiz 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.
