Illuminae was my FAVORITE book of 2015! In fact I bought at least 10 copies that I gave away to other people. It’s a constant recommended reads from me. Review here.
So obviously, Gemina was a MUST reads for me and I was thrilled that my friend Annalisse was able to get me a copy, thank you Annalisse!!! I was so excited about it it took me a while to finally pick it up because I was nervous it wouldn’t possibly live up to Illuminae.
Gemina (The Illuminae Files #2)
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.
Below is a short audio review I made about my main thoughts of Gemina. Of course, it’s spoiler free. I talk about overall impressions.
