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.

So I have a SMALL obsession with Illuminae. Small enough that I’ve made everyone read it and sort of have an amazing tote bag that I take everywhere with me. I just really LOVE this book. I’ve been wary and excited for the second one, we’ll have to see how it works with new characters(Lord knows I L O V E The Lunar Chronicles which does the same thing). But no matter what happens I’m crazy excited to see all of the new details that the authors are working on to create something really exciting! I loved the way Illuminae was set up with all of these files pieced together and I can’t wait to see the new kinds of files included in Gemina!
