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.

    This is the culmination of all those times we've wanted to hug a cover artist and steal their talent/soul.(A culmination being both "the high point" and "a reaching of a meridian by a celestial object.")(Because sci-fi in space without space-puns is an astronomical wasted opportunity.)...

    OMG Y'ALL! I got this last night because Amazon didn't do their pre-order right, but I digress. I wanted to do this big thing. I immediately took the cover off to see what the hardback looked like and loved it. I even painted my nails blue to go with the book and I had on blue lipstick...

    You know, I really didn't think they could surpass the awesome of Illuminae, that maybe this would be a "middle" book full of filler, but I was sooooo wrong. So. Incredibly. Wrong.Full review to come. ...

    Gemina shines in the shadow of its super-hyped predecessor Illuminae with the introduction of a set of new characters, astrophysical plot twists, and the seamless meeting of two storylines as the Hypatia closes in on the Heimdall jump station.For my full review, please head over to Eve...
