Kady, Ezra, Hanna, and Nik narrowly escaped with their lives from the attacks on Heimdall station and now find themselves crammed with 2,000 refugees on the container ship Mao. With the jump station destroyed and their resources scarce, the only option is to return to Kerenza - but who knows what they'll find seven months after the invasion? Meanwhile Kady's cousin, Asha, survived the initial BeiTech assault and has joined Kerenza's ragtag underground resistance.

There is going to be a movie some day, I hope. I had to start listening to the audible version while I followed along with my old kindle fire because the type is so small on some of the graphic pages, especially during the battle scenes, I couldn't read it. The full cast and the sound effects just made the story all the better. I enjoyed reading Illuminae so much, that I downloaded it and listened to it all over again on a road trip with my daughter. I am thoroughly impressed with the writing, research and production value of this story. What a ride!

Audie Award, Multi-Voiced Performance, 2016. 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, Kady and Ezra - who are barely even talking to each other - are forced to fight their way onto one of the evacuating fleet, with an enemy warship in hot pursuit.

It was hard to press pause upon this book, as the story continued the reader/listener was drawn in more and more by the descripted telling of this audiobook. The narrators and sound effects did an amazing job making the listeners feel as if they too were onboard the Alexander and Hypatia. I cannot wait to download the audiobook for the sequel, Gemia, and see how the story continues to unfold.
