Gemina (The Illuminae Files #2) by Amie Kaufman, Jay Kristoff

Goodreads Summary:

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.

My Thoughts:

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAS! Illuminae was amazing. This book was also fucking amazing. It was soooooooo good. I knew it was going to be great because Illuminae was just so fucking good! I read it when it came out, but apparently never reviewed it. BUT OMG GET IT BOTH BOOKS THEY ARE AMAZING. My non-reading husband even read and loved both books. AIDAN is back! YAY! AM I NOT MERCIFUL!? You are AIDAN, you absolutely are. AIDAN is the best thing about Illuminae, OBVI my favorite character. ANYWAYS. This book is a great sequel. It has everything you could want in a sequel including new equally great characters, old characters that you already loved, plot twists. stabby deaths. EPIC. New characters Hanna and Nik. Hanna is a secret bad ass, when she seems like a space princess. And Nik. SWOON. I LOVED HIM! Full of snarky comments and jokes. He’s the best. So the characters are all fucking GREAT. What about the plot? Well it is very similar to the first book in that you have two teens that you are rooting for who are trying to save everyone they can, but mostly each other. Murders and more murders, and then oh yah, murders. YAAAAAAAAAAS. I can’t wait for book 3!!!!!!!!!!!
