Check Out The First 7 Pages of ILLUMINAE Sequel GEMINA

Things look troublesome for the Hypatia ship as it heads to Heimdall station in new GEMINA peeks!

Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff’s Illuminae got lots of attention because it’s a great sci-fi adventure novel, but it’s not just a great novel: It’s a visual experience.

Told through interview transcripts, records databases, emails, texts, images, and more, Illuminae followed Kady and Ezra during a massive attack on their home colony of Kerenza and the proceeding race through space that threatened the lives of all on board in more ways than one.

Now, you can get your first glimpse at what happened as the Hypatia survivors make their way to the Heimdall Jump Station in the first 7 pages of its sequel Gemina, which succinctly sums up the rocky road ahead with BeiTech still on the ship’s tail!

Gemina excerpt by Isabella Biedenharn

We’re already hooked! Where’s the rest of it?!

Gemina hits shelves on October 18, 2016.


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.
