Illuminae Files #2
Illuminae pretty much blew my mind when I read it back in May this year. So, while I wasn’t waiting for Gemina near as long as some of the original fans of the series, I was very eager to get my hands on the continuation of this galactic adventure.
And bonus: these books are gorgeous. The US hardback editions, with the plastic, see-through dust jackets are so original and GORGEOUS together. SO. STINKIN. PRETTY.
I am sure that the authors would cringe if they heard me calling their books ‘pretty’, because these are bad ass stories, with strong independent characters, and scary alien violence. Pretty isn’t really a word that you should throw around when you have zombie viruses and alien worms eating the protagonists, but hey, sue me.
