Publisher Description

For fans of Marie Lu comes the first book in an epic series that bends the sci-fi genre into a new dimension.
 
 “A truly beautiful novel that redefines the form."Victoria Aveyard, bestselling author of Red Queen

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 a speck at the edge of the universe. Now with enemy fire raining down on them, Kady and Ezra—who are barely even talking to each other—are forced to evacuate with a hostile warship in hot pursuit.
     But their problems are just getting started. A plague has broken out and is mutating with terrifying results; the fleet’s AI may actually be their enemy; and nobody in charge will say what’s really going on. As Kady hacks into a web of data to find the truth, it’s clear the only person who can help her is the ex-boyfriend she swore she’d never speak to again.
      Told through a fascinating dossier of hacked documents—including emails, maps, files, IMs, medical reports, interviews, and more—Illuminae is the first book in a heart-stopping trilogy about lives interrupted, the price of truth, and the courage of everyday heroes.

Fast paced with twists!

I loved jumping right into the action , I couldn’t put it down, so many twists and just such a unique perspective for story telling. Ready for number two!

Yvette Br. ,

Amazing Audiobook!

Wow.... this audiobook was amazing! I listened to the audio and followed along with the book and this is literally the best audiobook I’ve ever read. I felt like I was watching a movie. The story was so much more emotional than I thought it would be. I was invested the entire time. It was action packed and even had a romance which I loved. I didn’t read the blurb so the sickness really caught me off guard. While listening to the audiobook I was a little creeped out. It was an experience. I loved the mixed media format of the book. It helped me visualize what was happening. And the full cast audiobook was *chefs kiss* perfection. This honestly may be one of my favorite books this year. I’m so glad I finally decided to read this book.
