Moving to a space station at the edge of the galaxy was always going to be the death of Hannas social life. Nobody said it might actually get her killed.The sci-fi saga that began with the breakout bestseller Illuminae continues on board the Jump Station Heimdall, where two new characters will confront the next wave of the BeiTech assault.Hanna is the station captains pampered daughter; Nik the reluctant member of a notorious crime family. But while the pair are struggling with the realities of life aboard the galaxys most boring space station, little do they know that Kady Grant and the Hypatia are headed right toward Heimdall, carrying news of the Kerenza invasion.When an elite BeiTech strike team invades the station, Hanna and Nik are thrown together to defend their home. But alien predators are picking off the station residents one by one, and a malfunction in the stations wormhole means the space-time continuum might be ripped in two before dinner. Soon Hanna and Nik arent just fighting for their own survival; the fate of everyone on the Hypatiaand possibly the known universeis in their hands.But relax. Theyve totally got this. They hope....

Overall story summed up in one word: PERFECTION!
So I Googled the definition of perfect and this is what came up:
What was going through my head while I was reading this?
✨ I could get used to this thrill ride. Lightning struck twice.
✨ I hate these characters. Every last one of them.
✨ I miss the Illuminae gang. Every last one of them.
So, here's the thing, I didn’t have the highest of hopes going into Gemina and that's not exactly how I usually start books. Granted, that's not how most people start books either but because these books are deeply character-driven novels, I knew from the reviews I'd read ...more

Gemina was one of the best things that happened to me in 2016! I can't even tell you how crazy good this baby was. If you didn't care about Illuminae much, i still highly suggest giving this a go.
Can we all just appreciate how magnificently beautiful AIDAN is!?! Let me sit here and swoon a little.
I am aware this quote is from the first book, but i just can't deal with how great it is. Possibly the most favorite quote of all times! I was overjoyed when his chapters st ...more
THIS WAS GREAT. So many aspects of this book BLEW MY MIND. I'm so curious to find out how this story is going to come to a close in the last book!

HE FAILED HER ONCE. HE REFUSES TO DO SO AGAIN.
you must have read the first book, which is Illuminae and if you haven't then you need to go to the nearest bookstore and buy it. seriously you have to read it. I have to admit that I didn't really like the first book as much as I liked the second book. Not even close. you can read my review of Illuminae here to know why I d ...more
But why is it over? Why must we wait for so long until the next one?
I'll be honest, I loved Illuminae & was skeptical of all the hype saying Gemina was better, but after finishing this I almost want to go back and adjust my Illuminae rating to a 4 and keep this at a 5. It was just an entire star better.
All my thoughts are muddled so I'll try to come back and give this a proper review when things settle down, but just know I loved this. So many feels. 💙
They've done it again. Threw my emotions onto a roller coaster ride into space and through wormholes and just every which way.
It was kind of exhausting reading this, but in such a good way. Man. Oh man <3
Third time reading this I listened to the audiobook. If you have the opportunity to experience it on audio (even both audio & physically read) I WOULD RECOMMEND YOU DO IT. With a cast of characters and sound effects, the listening experience is EPIC.
The story is also pretty epic, t ...more
