A distress signal on the edge of inhabited space. Two very different soldiers with one common goal: survival.
When a distress signal is received from a black-ops space station on the edge of inhabited space, Captain Saul Harris of the UNF Aurora is called in from leave to respond. But the mission is not what it seems. Information is thin on the ground and three new recruits have been added to the Aurora crew.
For Corporal Carrie Welles, one of the Aurora's new recruits, her first mission in space seems like a dream come true. Determined to achieve the success of her father before her, and suddenly thrust into a terrifying mission, she must work with her new captain and the strained Aurora crew to make it home alive.
When the Aurora arrives at the station Harris and Welles soon find themselves caught up in a desperate fight for survival. Station Darwin is not what they expected. The lights are off, but somebody is home...
AURORA: DARWIN is the first book in the emotionally-charged space opera 'Aurora' series by Amanda Bridgeman. If you like character-driven science fiction with plenty of drama, suspense, action and a hint of romance, then you'll love this thrilling cross between The Expanse, Battlestar Galactica and Alien series.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Amanda Bridgeman’s debut is a gripping sci-fi thriller that combines the dramatic elements of a space opera with the detail and depth of military science fiction. When a highly classified facility suddenly goes dark, Captain Saul Harris and his team—who are all male, apart from its three newest recruits—are called to investigate. Bridgeman delivers on fast-paced combat scenes and an atmosphere of constant danger and suspense, but it’s the focus on topical, real-world issues of misogyny and prejudice in the military that really sets Aurora: Darwin apart.
