Illuminae by by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

The day after Kady dumps Ezra there's a large scale military attack, decimating their home base, destroying the planet they grew up on and killing hundreds of people. They both thought that the break-up was the worst thing they'd have to deal with in 2575, but now Ezra is flying spacecrafts for a megacorporation's military forces and Kady is learning how to hack the spaceship she's been rescued by in search her mother's whereabouts.

But there's more at stake than Kady or Ezra could possibly know. Illuminae includes all the files from the officers on both ships, the transcripts of the surveillance cameras and instant messages from Ezra's crew. It's clear that these ships are barrelling towards something dramatic, something bigger than either Kady or Ezra can understand by themselves. If they want to save their own lives, and the lives of everyone they've ever known, these two exes will have to work together to unravel a grand conspiracy.

This is a space adventure that is so cleverly put together, you'll be heading back to the pour over all the evidence and see what you missed on the first go-round. It's exciting, unexpected and unlike anything you've read before. Illuminae is a totally original space adventure that you won't want to miss!
