Brace yourself for GEMINA—the highly anticipated sequel to the book critics called “out-of-this-world awesome,”featuring journal illustrations by bestselling author Marie Lu!   Moving to a space station at the edge of the galaxy was always going to be the death of Hanna’s social life. Nobody said it might actually get her killed.     The sci-fi saga that began with the breakout bestseller Illuminae continues on board the Jump Station Heimdall, where two new characters will confront the next wave of the BeiTech assault.      Hanna is the station captain’s pampered daughter; Nik the reluctant member of a notorious crime family. But while the pair are struggling with the realities of life aboard the galaxy's most boring space station, little do they know that Kady Grant and the Hypatia are headed right toward Heimdall, carrying news of the Kerenza invasion.      When an elite BeiTech strike team invades the station, Hanna and Nik are thrown together to defend their home. But alien predators are picking off the station residents one by one, and a malfunction in the station's wormhole means the space-time continuum might be ripped in two before dinner. Soon Hanna and Nik aren’t just fighting for their own survival; the fate of everyone on the Hypatia—and possibly the known universe—is in their hands.     But relax. They've totally got this. They hope.     Once again told through a compelling dossier of emails, IMs, classified files, transcripts, and schematics, Gemina raises the stakes of the Illuminae Files, hurling readers into an enthralling new story that will leave them breathless.   Praise for Illuminae:   A New York Times Bestseller A PW Bestseller  “Out-of-this-world awesome.” —Kirkus Reviews, Starred  “Stylistically mesmerizing.” —Publishers Weekly, Starred  “An arresting visual experience.” —Booklist, Starred  “A game-changer.” —Shelf Awareness, Starred

Yup, this book is pretty amazing. I felt like it was better than Illuminae in some ways. It was one hell of a ride! The conspiracy continues in this story. Gemina tells the story of Hanna and Nik on the Jump Station Heimdall. Through detailed script footage, recorded chats, journal entries and AiDen […]

Review: ILLUMINAE by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

There just isn’t anyway to write a review and do this book justice. All the hype is warranted. The raving reviews are not an exaggeration. Illuminae fucking blew my mind! So this book is written in a completely different format than anything I have ever read. You might have to turn the book […]
