This week I am waiting on
Gemina (Illuminae Files #2) by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
Publication Date: October 18th 2016
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.
Hanna Donnelly is the station captain’s pampered daughter; Nik Malikov 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 surivival; 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.
Illuminae was one of my most anticipated books last year and it did not disappoint. This series has the most creative narrative method I’ve ever come across. What surprised me was how much I connected with the characters despite the fact that the story is compiled of secondary documents.
Illuminae left me with a lot of unanswered questions and I hope we get some sort of resolution to these questions in Gemina. I’ll be interested in seeing how Hanna and Nik link up with Kady and Ezra and the part they play in this tale. Plus I think the dynamic between Hanna and Nik promises to be quite interesting; opposites attract after all. 😉
- Note: I am obsessed with the cover for Gemina. The blue just pops and it will look so nice next to Illuminae.
What’s your most anticipated book?
