Our heroes are back… kind of. From the bestselling co-authors of the Illuminae Files comes the second book in the epic series about a squad of misfits, losers, and discipline cases who just might be the galaxy’s best hope for survival.

First, the bad news: an ancient evil—you know, your standard consume-all-life-in-the-galaxy deal—is about to be unleashed. The good news?

This cover has killed me, brought me back to life, and killed me again. My precious grumpy space elf looks so good!

Don't mind me, I'm just over here drooling over an untitled book with no release date, cover, or synopsis...

THERE'S A COVER. THERE'S A HOT ALIEN BOI. EEEEEEEEEP
Mary S. R.
Only reasons I'll be reading this:

• cover
• the gorgeous cover
• i mean...did you see the cover
• Kal, my precious boy, rocking the cover
• Finian, missing from the cover
• and oh, I almost forgot—the irresistible need to see what they have left to base this sequel on when they ripped off both of the Guardians of the Galaxy films in the very first book

...damn you, curiosity, please don't kill my cute cat

ladies and gentlemen
i have decided to confess to you
that i am actually a ghost with wifi connection
i passed away
and the aurora burning cover is the responsible for such a crime
thanks

Look, Kal is cool and all, and I know everyone thinks he's gorgeous, but tbh I'm just holding out for a book in this series to have Finian on the cover because he is a precious soul (even if he is a sassy shithead) and deserves everything good in this world.

The way I feel about this cover is probably how I should have felt about the Foxhole Court cover, according to the consensual disgust of the Goodreads community in regards to an orange fox paw. Turns out I’m quite bad at doing what I’m supposed to do.

I NEED.

That cover is gorgeous. Like.
If a cover can set expectations, consider my expectations SET.

Who am I kidding; those expectations were high already.
