I am waiting oh so impatiently on Gemina, the sequel/companion to Iluminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff.
I fell in love with the formatting of this book. Telling the story through use of transcripts, debriefing files, IMs and more kept the pace quick and lively. I read this book when my son was about two weeks old and I finished it in less than 3 days. My son is a “short napper” so I couldn’t believe it when I finished the book so quickly.
The characters are each wonderfully destructive in their own ways. The emotions the authors pull out of you is phenomenal, one minute you’re crying then you’re laughing, then you’re doing that wierd laugh-cry.
I cannot wait until later this year so I can meet the new additions to the story and to find out how our friends from the first book fared.
Expected Publication: Oct. 18, 2016
From Goodreads… The highly anticipated sequel to the instant New York Timesbestseller that critics are calling “out-of-this-world awesome.”
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.
