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 Illuminaecontinues 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.
Gemina is a harrowing, addictive adventure with beautiful scenes, delightful characters and epic battles. There is honestly nothing better in life than a fight scene written by Jay and Amie, Gemina is no exception. If you’re anything like me, you didn’t think Gemina could possibly match Illuminae. Then, like me, you would be wrong.
Gemina begins following a different set of characters than Illuminae, which at first I thought would really diminish the experience for me. I was so attached to the Illuminae cast that the idea of reading different characters didn’t sit well. Of course, because Amie and Jay are so
damn good at their jobs, I was quickly absorbed in the new characters. Gemina’s plot tied in wonderfully to Illuminae, and I think it perfectly set up Obsidio. I can’t think of much of this book that wasn’t a win for me. In fact, my only real complaint Illuminae was that there was too much death, and that wasn’t a problem in Gemina.
That being said, I am terrified that Obsidio is going to be just everyone dying. Hopefully, Amie and Jay are too nice for that… but I won’t hold my breath.
