Stronger for Language by Perry Elisabeth Kirkpatrick such a great short story! It was sci-fi enough to be fascinating (AI’s and aliens) but not too much that it would boggle my brain. 😉 I LOVED those hilarious little twins, but my favorite part was the value placed on motherhood. That is something rare in fiction but oh, so special. 😉
Altogether, this was a great, short read! Just the right length to read between college classes. 😉

Determined to set her free, the twins must execute a daring plan with all the finesse a champion Spaceracer team can muster.

After reading Stronger for Language, it was delightful to see those cute toddlers grown up into honorable young men. I especially loved the concept of a “brainstorm” (literally) and the tech surrounding. That was the most realistic fake science I’ve ever read in sci-fi! 😛 AND can we talk about how brilllliant their plan was??? Because it was. (Also, I smell a possible future romance. *sighs happily*) Just a note that the evil of human trafficking is present, but the issue is well-handled and talked around.
Best quote: “I have a way,” he said. “And you are worth it.”
Altogether, Aurora was a great sequel! I dearly hope the author writes more about these characters. 😉
