My Rating: 5 stars
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.
Illiminae is everything I’ve been told… and more.
It’s been a while since I read a sci/fic book and this one just reminded me why I love it so much.
Illuminae was such an amazing roller-coaster! Once I started reading it, I wasn’t able to put it down. You know, it was like reading texts the whole day on your phone, only it was about battleships and plagues and war and some crazy stuff… It was impossible to put it down.
The authors did an incredible job with this book. The format wasn’t the only unique thing about it: it was the plot itself and the characters.
It is true what they say, Illuminae will make you smile and laugh and cry… THE FEELINGS!
Maybe the format is a little difficult to handle in the beginning, but once you’re in it, it will blow your mind.
Absolutely deserved five stars for this one.
