Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Gemina by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
Published by Knopf Books for Young Readers in October 2016
The Illuminae Files #2

"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.  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."  -- From Goodreads

Will you like it?
This series is amazing.  I love how it incorporates so many different documents, which kept me engaged as a reader.  Fans of science fiction will definitely love this story, especially when they talk about Gemina (I don't want to spoil anything!).  I was actually worried when I found out the second story wouldn't take place entirely with the first characters, but Kaufman & Kristoff do very well in tying the first book into the second  without any problems.

Disclosure: I borrowed a copy of this book from my local library.
