Book Review: Aurora Rising

Title: Aurora Rising by Jay Kristoff & Amie Kaufman
Rep: Mixed skin color; Possible Queer Character
Trigger Warnings: None

Possible Queer Rep might have you wondering who I am talking about. Finian makes comments about “doing both twins” and makes a comment about “Breaking into his prom date’s boxers”. So he *could* be Bi/Pan. Until the rep is fully spelled out however, I’m not giving any points.

I don’t want another Ronan and Adam of The Raven Cycle. I want Magnus and Alec of Shadowhunters or Mangus and Alex of Magnus Chase And The Gods Of Asgard. I want rep so in your face that nobody can try to re-con it. Yes, I am super picky cuz I’m Queer and it’s 2019. We need spelled out Queer rep in this era more than ever. Not wishy washy two lines.

I 100% recommend this book. I am abit uneasy by a soulmate bond via Aurora and Kal. I do like that Aurora is asking for him to let her fall on her own. I just worry soulmate bonds can’t ever be a choice. It may sound romantic but it really isn’t.
