First, survive. Then tell the truth. The year is 2575, and two rival mega-corporations are at war over a planet that’s little more than an ice-covered speck at the edge of the universe. Too bad nobody thought to warn the people living on it. With enemy fire raining down on them, Kady and Ezra – who are barely even talking to each other – are forced to fight their way onto one of the evacuating fleet, with an enemy warship in hot pursuit.

So I am going to show you the quick review I posted on Goodreads after reading this and then I will go into more detail.

Initial Review - Holey Moley. This book was ama zing. I have never read anything like this. From The way it was set out to the plot to the characters, it blew me away. Best book I have read so far this and I am so excited for the sequel.

So basically that was my first thoughts on the book and to be honest they haven't changed much. I can safely say I have never read a book set out like this bit it was so well done and I had so much fun reading to find out what would happen next. I loved that there were messages, emails, memos, AIDEN and other added bonuses to the books. I'm not going to go to much into the plot because I don't want to spoil it for you guys. I loved the plot and just when you thought you were sort of understanding it boom plot twist. Plus that ending!! Can I just say I have never wanted a sequel in my hands as much as I did with Gemina so I am super excited for it to come out as I think it will be just as great as the first one. If I could give Illuminae and infinite amount of stars I would.
