Kady and Ezra thought their break-up was messy until they witnessed their entire world literally falling apart. Now they're piecing together what's left of their lives, and their romance, and trying to survive an intergalactic war. An innovatively designed story that's best described as Battlestar Galactica meets 10 Things I Hate About You.

The year is 2575, and two rival mega-corporations are at war over a planet that's little more than an ice-covered speck at the edge of the universe. Too bad nobody thought to warn the people living on it. With enemy fire raining down on them, exes Kady and Ezra - who are barely even talking to each other - are forced to fight their way onto the evacuating fleet, with an enemy warship in hot pursuit.

But the warship is the least of their problems. A deadly plague has broken out and is mutating, with terrifying results. The fleet's AI, which should be protecting them, may actually be their enemy; and nobody in charge will say what the hell is going on. As Kady hacks into a tangled web of data to find the truth, it's clear only one person can help her bring it all to light: the ex-boyfriend she swore she'd never speak to again.

Illuminae is the first book in a heart-stopping, high-octane trilogy about lives interrupted, the price of truth and the courage of everyday heroes.

      This book wasn't really my kind of thing but it was quite interesting. The format was really cool but a little bit hard to follow.

        Don't let the size put you off - this book is a quick and fast-paced read full of twists and turns. If you haven't delved into Sci-Fi much, this is the perfect starting point.

            UNBELIEVABLY GOOD!

            I went into this book with pretty high expectations from all the hype surrounding it. But WOW! I loved it!

            The writing style, the characters, the setting, the layout of the book, it was all sot on and amazingly executed. I would highly recommend this book!
