Praise for this book

"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. Come for the mind-blowing concept of a massive geomagnetic storm that wipes out nearly every power grid on Earth, stay for why this book truly soars - characters you'll love, breakneck-pacing, and the question we're all wrestling with in these wild, modern times: what happens when life slips out of our control?" - Blake Crouch

"David Koepp does it again! Mixing humor, terror, and an all-too-believable doomsday scenario, Aurora is at the top of my list this year." - Christina Dalcher

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

"Aurora is everything a great novel, and great thriller, should be. David Koepp's story is frightening, surprising, wildly entertaining, but also full of heart. I don't know of many writers who could keep that many plates spinning as deftly, or as successfully. Somehow Koepp does. Aurora is the work of one of our best storytellers, at the top of his game." - Mike Lupica
