Waiting on Wednesdays: Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Publish Date: October 18, 2016
Publisher: Knopf Books for Young Readers

I haven't read Illuminae yet, but judging from how many people were dueling to the death for an ARC of Gemina at BEA, I feel like I should get to it soon.

The highly anticipated sequel to the instant New York Times bestseller that critics are calling “out-of-this-world awesome.”

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. Once again told through a compelling dossier of emails, IMs, classified files, transcripts, and schematics, Gemina raises the stakes of the Illuminae Files, hurling readers into an enthralling new story that will leave them breathless.

  4. I haven't read book one yet either but it seems to be a very popular book. I'm always a little hesitant to read something when that happens because the expectation is so high.

  14. I'm not a big Sci Fi fan but this series sounds awesome! I may have to check it out. If you'd like, please stop by and see today's brew,Cafinated Reads' WoW!

  15. I regret sitting on the Illuminae ARC since BEA 2015. I read it right before BEA 2016, and it was AH-mazing! I waited the 2.5 hours for Gemina, and immediately read it. It was fantastic!!

  16. I feel like I'm waiting on this book too because of all the BEA hype and I still have the Illumane ARC somewhere

  17. You haven't read Illuminae yet?! Omgosh you definitely have to read it soon!

    I am dyyyying for this book! I'm so excited. I love that it's on two different characters but incorporates the original story and isn't a completely different story.

    So, so, so excited for this!
