Adam and his grandpa find a star map in an alien outpost while exploring the jungle of New Guinea. 10 years later, Adam becomes a test pilot for a space agency's experimental spacecraft. And a week before his 20th birthday, his grandpa dies a mysterious death leaving a preprogrammed starship to him. Adam sets on the journey to a wonderland named Aurona. This journey is supposed to be smooth because of the excellent preprogramming of the starship, but the starship crash-lands on a strange planet. Somehow, Adam has lost his recent memory, and the starship is nowhere to be found. How is he going to get to Aurona?

Replete with adventures, Aurona by BB Prescott is a treat for explorers and sci-fi readers. The readers get to explore the land, air, and waters of Aurona along with Adam and his crew. There are also aliens, spaceships, robotoids, and a lot of high-tech gizmos to attract space geeks and sci-fi readers.

The thing I love about this book is that the author never fails to provide a scientific explanation of the inner workings of all the stunning creatures and weird phenomena. There are satisfactory answers to all the questions that a science geek might have.

Aurona is unique with its underground dwellings and mesmerising greenery. The plants in this land have gold in their roots, and there are birds with phosphorescent lights in their feathers and eerie creatures with telepathic abilities. The readers can't help but appreciate the incredible world-building.

Adam is an amiable character and possesses striking leadership qualities. He has the ability to see things in a bigger picture, and he always has a solution to every problem. Some of the crew members are also introduced in the story, and the author also provides sufficient backstories of these characters, but most of the crew members remain anonymous.

The book has an underlying Christian theme which becomes obvious at the end, and the readers who are not Christian find the ending a bit ambiguous, and this is the only unpleasant thing about this book. Despite this vagueness, the book doesn't fail to fascinate even the non-Christian readers with its marvellous world-building and logical approach. That is why I am giving this book 4 out of 4 stars. As there are only a few errors, I find no reason to give it a lower rating. This book would appeal to explorers, space geeks, and sci-fi readers of all ages.

The Christian theme honestly is not something I'm looking for, but other elements of the novel seem intriguing to me. Thank you for your great review!

That "underlying Christian theme" is a bit worrying, but everything else about the book is just what I like, so I guess I can handle a little religion. Thanks for an excellent review.
