Publisher's Summary

Soon to be a film from Netflix and Oscar-winning director of The Hurt Locker Kathryn Bigelow.           

When the lights go out no one is safe….

A planet without power.

When a solar storm hits the Earth, the lights go out across the planet. But this time the blackout won’t be over soon—it could last for years. Aubrey and her stepson now face the biggest challenge of their lives.

A society without rules.

Soon they hear rumours of riots, the struggle for food becomes real and even within their small communities, the rule of law is collapsing. Aubrey’s estranged brother Thom, a self-made billionaire who abandoned her years ago, retreats to a gilded desert bunker where he can ride out the crisis in perfect luxury.

A race to build a better world....

But the complicated history between the siblings is far from over, and what feels like the end of the world is just the beginning of a personal reckoning long overdue....

Critic Reviews

"Fantastic story, a real page-turner. Impossible to put down." (Stephen King)

"Forget a good night’s sleep. Aurora is epic, but personal and poignant, horrifying and darkly funny and flat-out suspenseful." (Linwood Barclay)

"With Aurora, David Koepp has firmly staked his ground as one of the best thriller writers working today." (Blake Crouch)

Aurora shockingly bad.

This has to be one of the most boring books I've ever read.
if your expecting an apocalyptic tale as the intro suggests., with all the potentiol ups and downs that could bring..forget it...this is more a soap opera with almost no likable characters.
I felt I was reading my 13year olds creative writing essay at one.point...
Save your money.....Save your life from boredom...and save your time as it will never come back...
