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 Illuminaecontinues 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...
"Donnelly, H: I'm not even sure what I'm trying to ask.
Guest591: Um, Okay.
Donnelly, H: Just...
Donnelly, H: If nothing was ever going to happen with us--and I know in what passes for reality for you that's obviously not true, but just pretend--if nothing was ever going to happen, would you want to be my friend?"-- Gemina by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
Comments: I have waited so long for this book to come out. I was really excited for it, and while the story wasn't exactly what I was expecting, it was still a good book,

What are you reading this week?

  1. I really liked Gemina - it was a little different to Illuminae. At times it felt almost like Die Hard in Space which I actually kinda liked! Definitely excited for the third book!

  7. YAY Gemina!!!! I have this book on my shelves but somehow have managed holding off actually picking the thing up...because review requests are at the top of my reading list right now! I mean...I'm pretty impressed with my self control, but I'm DYYYYYING at the same time because WANNA READ IT! Hahaha, thank you so so much for sharing!

    Here is my Friday 56, if you're interested in checking it out! No pressure or worries at all if you're not, though. Happy book-ing to you in the near future, and happy Friday! <3

  8. I'm rereading the first book while waiting for this one. The publisher had to send another copy because the last one never made it. I guess someone out there is enjoying it. LOL

  10. I just finished Gemina this month. I absolutely loved it, but I can see why some didn't like it as much as Illuminae. They were pretty different from each other!
