The format and idea of providing a dossier are what brought me to this series. After reading the first book of the series, I decided to continue because I enjoyed the storytelling format. The problem, though, is that the characters are the same.

They are cookie cutouts of each other with only the names and physical attributes changed. Hanna and Kady are the epitome of the girlz rulz, badass chick tropes. They speak the same and are flat. There are no real characterizations or personalities in any of these characters. The same goes for Ezra and Nik. They are the broody, boys who have a romantic side. Again, they speak the same and have no real depth other than superficial physical changes, such as one has tattoos, and the other doesn't.

The biggest problem I had with book 1, and this book is how EVERY LAST CHARACTER speaks in a sarcastic, snarky tone. Seriously? Does everyone feel the need to run one-liners and zingers non-stop? It gets exhausting to read every character speaking essentially the same way. The only character that has their own voice is the AI, AIDAN and he is a machine. I find it interesting that the authors couldn't create distinct voices for their human characters, let alone their main human characters.

I gave the first book 3 stars because visually, it is fun, and the idea of the story's presentation gave it a boost. Unfortunately, the second book is the same story brought over with "different" characters who are just the same as the first and are dealing with the same dilemmas. 2 stars. ( )

In the second installation of The Illuminae Files, the story now navigates a young Hanna Donnely, the spoiled and frankly messy social life of the daughter of Heimdall Jump Station captain along with Nik Malikov, a reluctant member of a drug cartel. Kady Grant aboard the Hypatia is but a few hours away, carrying the news of the invasion of Kerenza IV by BeiTech which Hanna has no idea about. While Hanna starts sifting through her feelings for her current boyfriend Jax and her drug dealer Nik, Heimdall is jumped by an elite BeiTech strike team, recruited to invade the station just in time to destroy the Hypatia as soon as it gets there.Hanna might be a pampered, rich brat but she’s not going to keep quiet as her home is taken over by people she does not like. In the very unfavourable situation, Hanna and Nik along with his hacker cousin Ella have to work together if they want to save their home and the passengers aboard the station from the strike team, mysterious alien predators and a rip in the space-time continuum. The fate of Heimdall, Hypatia and the whole world rests in the hands of this unlikely duo. Although I was a little disappointed that the story would not continue with Kady and Ezra, the book itself was redemption enough. It has everything that you could want from a sci-fi dystopian future book; plenty of invasions, murders, wormy alien predators and some bad boy romance. My favourite part of this book was definitely the invasions and how in detail the process has been described from the physical taking over, the radio transmissions and all the hacking. Gemina is definitely a great continuation of the Files and a must-read for fans of this series. ( )

And so continues the story of the Illuminae Files.

First off, I have to once again applaud the audiobook production of Gemina. I know this has nothing to do with the actual book, but like Illuminae, the full cast production was stellar. Each voice actor was great, but the music and sound effects take the story to the next level. This series is in my top three for favorite audiobooks – they’re so immersive.

Story-wise, I didn’t like Gemina quite as much as much as Illuminae. It felt too similar. Much of the book was spent in a space survival situation, hiding in vents and avoiding or negotiating with an enemy. In fact, I’d even go so far as to say that Hanna and Nik felt like photocopies of Kady and Ezra to me, only lacking some of their depth. None of this made Gemina a bad book, but it did make me grateful for the length of time I waited between books so it wasn’t as exhausting as it could have been.

If you want to find a series with constant action and small, quick twists, I think the Illuminae Files does a great job. The science is well explained and accessible for those who aren’t science fiction aficionados, but there isn’t so much of it that it drags down the story or becomes pretentious. The characters tend to be witty and there are a lot of quips. The only thing that bothered me about the dialogue was a single repeated joke, “I’d like to buy a vowel please,” implying that not only is Wheel of Fortune alive and well deep into this distant future, but it’s cool enough to be quoted by teens. Since that isn’t true now, this struck me as a bit out of place. That’s such a small little nitpick, but it got under my skin, so I wanted to mention it.

Overall, I still think the series is interesting and generally original, particularly in the YA genre. I was a little thrown off in the beginning (where are Kady and AIDEN? Who is this Hanna character?), but I think the way Kaufman and Kristoff tied both storylines together at the end was really good. My hope for Obsidio would be that we don’t get another whole new cast of characters and then have to tie these ones in again, because that trick has already been done before, and it just wouldn’t be as good the second time. For myself, I’ll definitely be reading Obsidio. The Illuminae Files gets a lot of praise and while I’m not sure it’s at the level of gushing-I-can’t-even-describe-my-feelings-omg-this-book, it’s a highly entertaining read and worth your time! ( )

I just couldn't hey into this which was disappointing because I enjoyed the first one. There's no big reason and I really don't know why I didn't click with this book but I don't feel the need to give it a second chance at this point. ( )

Gemina is the second book in the Illuminae Files series. The story is told using personal journal entries & drawings, emails, ship communication logs and other information related to an attack on a space station. I absolutely love the creativity and suspense of this series! It's not just a great story...but it's visually entertaining as well. The diagrams, drawings, messages, logs, etc just bring a coolness factor to the story. It makes this series different.....and one of the most entertaining science fiction/action stories I've read in a long time!

In Illuminae, mining corporation BeiTech attacked a colony on Kerenza. To cover up the attack, BeiTech now intends to jump a fleet of drones through the wormhole at Heimdall Jump Station to destroy any survivors of the Kerenza attack. Then, they will also destroy the Jump Station. No witnesses. No survivors. Hanna Donnelly, daughter of the station's captain and two members of a drug-dealing crime family, Ella and Nik Malikov find themselves thrown together to resist the murderous invaders on the station.

I'm always a bit worried when I really love the first book in a series that the subsequent books won't be as good. This time I had nothing to worry about. Gemina is a fabulous continuation of the story started in Illuminae! Lots of action...great suspense...just a very entertaining space action story! Gemina ends on a bit of a cliffhanger....so I'm very very glad I have the finale of the trilogy, Obsidio on my TBR shelf waiting for me!

I am definitely going to be reading more by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. The Illuminae series is just outstanding! I will be sorry to reach the end....but will jump into other books by these two talented authors! ( )
