Now that will take a miracle.
Endings are meant to go out with a boom and I do believe Aurora’s End did that, albeit a quieter one than I expected.

It’s like the world doesn’t revolve around the characters, but the characters revolve around this world that still holds mysteries that we are only getting a taste of.Continue reading “Review: Aurora’s End by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff”
