Review: Gemina (The Illuminae Files #2) by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Gemina (The Illuminae Files) - Jay Kristoff, Amie Kaufman

 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.

 

 

 

Wow. This book was amazing and I’m not sure what else I can say that has not been said by others. But I will try.
To be honest I wasn’t sure if I would like this book as much as book one because we follow other characters, BUT yes I loved it. The more I got to get to know them the more I loved them and there were even a few similarities between them. Plus we still hear from our old crew and really in the end it all comes together with a big bang.
I loved pretty much everything about this book , the only tiny, really tiny thing that I didn’t like was the weird alien like creature thingys, I just didn’t see a real purpose to them.
No surprise, I loved Hannah, Nik and Ella . Each had their own set of problems but I loved them all even more for that and their really worked through their sh#t.
This book for sure will keep you on the edge of your seat and glued to the pages or headphones. You will get a little of everything humor, snark, betrayal romance and a whole lot of action. Pretty much nonstop action with some of the biggest plot twists I have a read in a long time. This book or series really is pure genius and I can recommend it .
I also started the audiobook with this book so that was even a better experience and I’m glad I did it was fantastic and with being able to look at the pages it was just an overall epic read.
I cannot wait to see what Kaufman and Kristoff will throw at us in the third in final book.
Overall, all I can really say that I loved, loved this book and rate it a full 5★
