████ it … ALL THE STARS…
All the ████ing stars in the ████ing ‘verse!
I AM NOT WORTHY!!!
Seriously, this series is a masterpiece of multimedia storytelling and
I LOVED IT!!! ⇐ Understatement of the millennia right there Chum
This story takes place on the jump station Heimdall directly following the events of Illuminae. Like with Illuminae, the story is told though a series of messages, files, notes, schematics, coding and video footage (shout out to the return of Surveillance Guy)
We have a new cast of characters
Nik Malikov (aka my new husband), Jackson Merrick, and Hanna ████ing Donnelly
as well as some old favorites.
Honestly, I suggest going into Gemina with as little preconceived notions as possible for best results. So, I will refrain from going into too many details on the story.
Just read it!
(Goodreads synopsis possible series spoilers):
“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 Illuminae continues 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.
Once again told through a compelling dossier of emails, IMs, classified files, transcripts, and schematics, Gemina raises the stakes of the Illuminae Files, hurling readers into an enthralling new story that will leave them breathless.”
