The first installment in the Star Runner Chronicles introduced Aurora and her friends. And the danger came from here on Earth. This time, a new girl has powerful powers that rival her own. With a bit of teen angst, mystery, and a lot of suspense – this sequel is a whole lot of fun. We get a bit more of the backstory of Aurora’s people and why these new aliens are here. I thoroughly enjoyed this engaging story with fantastic artwork that adds to the tone and pacing. I look forward to more in this exciting and fresh series.
