If you have been here for the last couple months then you would know that I already read Illuminae but I wanted to give it a read before I read Geminia. I wanted an excuse to read it again what can I say? I loved this book.
Illuminae (The Illuminae Files #1)
by Amie Kaufman, Jay Kristoff
Hardcover, First Edition, 599 pages
Published October 20th 2015 by Knopf Books for Young Readers
This morning, Kady thought breaking up with Ezra was the hardest thing she’d have to do. This afternoon, her planet was invaded.
The year is 2575, and two rival megacorporations are at war over a planet that’s little more than an ice-covered speck at the edge of the universe. Too bad nobody thought to warn the people living on it. With enemy fire raining down on them, Kady and Ezra—who are barely even talking to each other—are forced to fight their way onto an evacuating fleet, with an enemy warship in hot pursuit.
But their problems are just getting started. A deadly plague has broken out and is mutating, with terrifying results; the fleet's AI, which should be protecting them, may actually be their enemy; and nobody in charge will say what’s really going on. As Kady hacks into a tangled web of data to find the truth, it's clear only one person can help her bring it all to light: the ex-boyfriend she swore she'd never speak to again.
BRIEFING NOTE: Told through a fascinating dossier of hacked documents—including emails, schematics, military files, IMs, medical reports, interviews, and more--Illuminae is the first book in a heart-stopping, high-octane trilogy about lives interrupted, the price of truth, and the courage of everyday heroes.
Honestly I loved this series. I do. There is something about the emotions behind this book that really gets to me. The need for survivial. The need to love. It just, it is beautiful. I loved reading this book the second time just as much as the first. If not more. This series has a pull that I haven't read in a long time. I can't really describe what it is. But believe me, if you want a roller coaster of a book, a good roller coaster, pick up Illuminae
