AURORA RHAPSODY consists of nine books, grouped into three sequential trilogies - AURORA RISING, AURORA RENEGADES and AURORA RESONANT - as well as multiple short stories.

Most of the short stories are available for FREE to readers. With one exception (Restless II), the short stories can be read at any time, in any order, with or without having read any of the novels, and need not be read at all to follow the main storyline. That being said….

One of the greatest science fiction series ever written.
My impression is that the author is somewhat of a genius, and the novels, both individually and as a series, are incredible. Utterly, spectacularly, brilliant.

AURORA RISING

WHEN FACED WITH ITS GREATEST CHALLENGE,
WILL HUMANITY RISE TO TRIUMPH OR FALL TO RUIN?

Aurora Rising is an epic tale of galaxy-spanning adventure, of the thrill of discovery and the unquenchable desire to reach ever farther into the unknown. It's a tale of humanity at its best and worst, of love and loss, of fear and heroism. It's the story of a woman who sought the stars and found more than anyone imagined possible.

AURORA RENEGADES

It is a time of accelerating technological change and shifting allegiances as the old rules fall away and the old balance of power is upended. A new world rises—one of unshackled AIs, indestructible starships, ethereal quantum spaces and potent new weapons—and the race is on to determine who will control its future.

AURORA RESONANT

Our universe is but a snowglobe—an experiment born of desperation and hope. The true universe is unfathomably vast, teeming with life and untold wonders. And it is enslaved.

Created by ancient aliens in a daring gambit to understand the nature of the enemy, humanity is now asked to be the savior of a universe not their own. If they are to succeed, they must rise above not only their fractious past but the sins of their genetic ancestors to boldly embrace a future they never dared imagine possible.

SHORT STORIES

The short stories are not required reading to understand the main storyline (though Apogee and Re/Genesis in particular are highly recommended). Instead, they add flavor, depth and context to various characters and events. The shorts are presented below in their suggested (but not required) reading order.
