Description

For fans of Marie Lu comes the first book in an epic series that bends the sci-fi genre into a new dimension. "A truly beautiful novel that redefines the form." -Victoria Aveyard, bestselling author of Red Queen This morning, Kady thought breaking up with Ezra was the hardest thing she'd have to do. This afternoon, her planet was invaded. The year is 2575, and two rival megacorporations are at war over a planet that's little more than a speck at the edge of the universe. Now with enemy fire raining down on them, Kady and Ezra-who are barely even talking to each other-are forced to evacuate with a hostile warship in hot pursuit. But their problems are just getting started. A plague has broken out and is mutating with terrifying results; the fleet's AI may actually be their enemy; and nobody in charge will say what's really going on. As Kady hacks into a web of data to find the truth, it's clear the only person who can help her is the ex-boyfriend she swore she'd never speak to again. Told through a fascinating dossier of hacked documents-including emails, maps, files, IMs, medical reports, interviews, and more-Illuminae is the first book in a heart-stopping trilogy about lives interrupted, the price of truth, and the courage of everyday heroes.

Professional reviews

"A full cast, sound effects, strong pacing, and thorough characterizations expand as well as anchor this sci-fi adventure. When their planet is attacked, a military ship and a research vessel flee, carrying scientists, military personnel, and civilians, including Kady and Ezra, a recently broken-up couple whose skills become crucial to the survival of the fleet. The voyage is threatened by a pursuing warship, a dangerous virus, and AIDEN, the military ship's increasingly unstable AI. Told through documents, recorded communications, transcribed footage, and the narrative from AIDEN, this story is a behemoth of a space opera. The cast handles a bevy of moving parts with grace and masterful concentration, combining humor and terror with hope and determination. K.S.B. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
