Illuminae (The Illuminae Files #1) by Amie Kaufman


Book Summary:

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 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 an evacuating fleet, with an enemy warship in hot pursuit.

But their problems are just getting started. 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’s really 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.

BRIEFING NOTE: Told through a fascinating dossier of hacked documents—including emails, schematics, military files, IMs, medical reports, interviews, and more—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.


My Review:

Who would have thought that when Kady and Ezra breaks up, the world would end? Well that’s what’s happen when a war breaks out. Now Kady and Ezra must live on a space station to train to fight their enemies.  Kady is a smart girl and hacker, digs for information on what her enemies and what secrets lays on their ship. While Ezra becomes a train pilot and learning the ropes of shooting people. When the enemy is getting closer it might be up to the two of them to save the human race? Let the clock down begin as it will be human versus machine, or human versus human. In the end only one will win this fight. Is it really the end of the human race? This book I really enjoy the out of space feelings to it, along with some nice action. You enjoy the the story of Kady and Ezra and it leave you emotional wreck and routing for these two to win. So dive and find out for yourself who will win this war in the end? Happy Reading!

  1. I started listening to the audiobook today at work and I think they did a great job of capturing the unique format of the book even when I can’t see the pages. Kady and Ezra are so funny going back and forth, especially when she gives him way too much credit for finding an emergency broadcast when he was really looking for getaway music.
