Gemina Cover Release

Apparently sometime during the craziness of March I missed the release of the cover for Gemina, the second book in the Illuminae Files series.  I devoured the first books, Illuminae back in January and have been ridiculously excited for the October release!  The writing styles of these two authors, Amie Kaugman and Jay Kristoff, meshes so well together and Illuminae is without a doubt one of my favorite read of this year.  So without further ado the cover for book number two, Gemina.

 

 

Release Date: October 18, 2016

Genre:  SciFi (kind of has that space opera feel to it)

 

 

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. Gemina takes place on the space station, Heimdall. 

 

I seriously recommend the first book to anyone who reads Science Fiction books.  Yeah, okay it's technically also a Young Adult book, but don't let the push you off.  This series isn't written like the usual book.  It's told through the eyes of surveillance cameras and desk reports.  For me the entire book was an experience, and I can't wait to be thrown back into the universe through an airlock.

The Guardian's Wyrd:
 
Sometimes having a fairytale prince as a best friend can be a real pain.
 
Jay didn't realise that sticking up for Rowan, the gangly new kid at school, would plunge him into the dangers and politics of the magical realm of Sunthyst. But if anyone is up for the challenge it's Jay September. With his trusty dog, Shadow, at his side, he braves the Watcher in the dark that guards the tunnels between the worlds, and undertakes a dangerous quest to rescue the prince.
 
It's a race against time - can he sneak Prince Rowan away from under King Lessian's nose and bring him safely back home - all before the prince's sixteenth birthday? Or is Rowan's mother, the exiled Queen Persia, secretly trying to hold onto her power by denying her son his birthright?
 
Jay is ready for anything, except, perhaps, the suffocating darkness of the tunnels. And that howling…
