For fans of Marie Lu and James Dashner comes the first book in an epic new series.

“Brace yourself. You're about to be immersed in a mindscape that you'll never want to leave.”
—Marie Lu, New York Times bestselling author of the Legend trilogy

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 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.

But their problems are just getting started. A deadly plague has broken out and is mutating, with terrifying results; the fleet’s AI, which should be protecting them, may actually be their enemy; and nobody in charge will say what’s really going on. As Kady hacks into a tangled web of data to find the truth, it’s clear only one person can help her bring it all to light: the ex-boyfriend she swore she’d never speak to again.

Told through a fascinating dossier of hacked documents—including emails, schematics, military files, IMs, medical reports, interviews, and more—Illuminae is the first book in a heart-stopping, high-octane trilogy about lives interrupted, the price of truth, and the courage of everyday heroes.

This quote is from when Kady Grant was getting interview. He said he thinks this because he is short, people are underestimating him and what he does.I feel this quote is important due to the fact many people underestimate themselves in today's world. You should always try your best at school work...

4.0 ILLUMINAE
A whoooooole bunch of people have reviewed this book in depth, and I don’t think I have much to say that hasn’t been covered already, so I’ll be brief. Illuminae is sort of like Firefly/Serenity had a baby with the slow space chase from Star Wars: The Last Jedi and left it to be raised by The Mart...

4.5 I highly recommend listening to the audio for this brilliant piece of sci-fi in an unusual format
There are just so many reviews for Illuminae so I don’t have anything too revelatory to say, but the true reason for my enjoying it so much this time, is that while reading it, mostly on and off, I listened to the AUDIOBOOK. I think this is almost required for at least one of your experiences with t...

4.0 YA space opera with a unique format
I read Illuminae back when it was released and really enjoyed. Then I bought Gemina when it was released, and held onto it in anticipation of the release of Obsidio, which came out last Tuesday. I read all three of them over the weekend. The good: You know how lots of reviewers will use phrases...

5.0 WOW this Audio for the Book is just WOW!!!!!!
I have to say I am not a huge audible fan, but if all audios were as fantastic as this one, I would listen to them a whole lot more. I really loved Ezra, and Kady so freaking much, and how cute were they, when they communicated with one another. I really thought the story and some characters were r...
