Publisher's Summary

From best-selling author duo Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff comes the exciting finale in the trilogy that broke the mold and has been called "stylistically mesmerizing" and "out-of-this-world-awesome". 

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. When Rhys - an old flame from Asha's past - reappears on Kerenza, the two find themselves on opposite sides of the conflict. With time running out, a final battle will be waged on land and in space, heroes will fall, and hearts will be broken.

Live a life worth dying for

The performance this cast gave was amazing. I only wish the individual characters had more opportunity to speak because all of them have such amazing performances, but then that would deprive me of the ever wonderful analyst 7213 0089 (whose true identity is finally revealed!), which would also be a tragedy. This book reminds us that everyone involved is there against their will. The survivors heading towards Kerenza never asked to be attacked, the survivors on Kerenza never asked to be occupied by an invading force, and even the invaders never signed up to occupy a hostile planet for 7 months. There are some great villains you love to hate, only to be reminded of their humanity at the least opportune moment. There is also just as much tragedy in this final installment as in the previous ones. This was a highly satisfying ending to a great series.

Meant to be an Audio Book

This wrap up to the series was perfect. I couldn't sit through an audiobook before I got to this series. I could not have thought of a better way to wrap up a series. my only very small little problem with this book is the main character bubble makes it a little hard to get worried something might happen to the main characters in the book.

Satisfying Conclusion

I really like the unique way this Audiobook (and the entire series) was created. The books are so creatively constructed, and there is no way to exactly replicate them in an audiobook format. But the producers of this audiobook found a similarly creative way to tell the story in an audio format.

Each is it own experience, and both are very good!

Love the Style!

This series has the coolest narration style! Almost reads like how I imagine old timey radio shows would have been with the full cast of characters — except with very modern storytelling, compelling characters, and a plot that keeps moving forward. Illuminae took me a few chapters to get used to the storytelling but once I was in, I loved the entire series!!

It's like watching an incredible movie

The finale to the illuminate files is not to be missed. It's like watching an incredible movie. The authors do a great job of combining their styles to create a cast of characters that, like the last 2 books, you become so attached to. You want them to succeed against all odds, knowing that the likelihood is slim. Young people deal with the same emotions as adults and realistically, those emotions are magnified. I totally would have read this series as a young adult and been fine with the adult language and themes; I have to keep reminding myself of that as an adult. This book has new characters, getting to see a side of Baytech we haven't seen previously, and more twists and turns than you can imagine. Be aware- you will be sucked in the whole time, so set aside a day to just listen.

Awesome Audio Book

I would have never read this book in paper, and I would have missed out on a great read! This book was meant to be an audiobook. It was wonderfully performed with great effects.

The characters are likable. Edge of your seat.

Don't miss out in the opportunity to experience this series!
