Kady thought breaking up with Ezra was the worst thing she'd ever been through. That was before her planet was invaded. Now, with enemy fire raining down on them, Kady and Ezra are forced to fight their way onto one of the evacuating craft, with an enemy warship in hot pursuit.
But the warship could be the least of their problems. 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 biggest threat; and nobody in charge will say what's really going on. As Kady plunges into a web of data hacking to get to the truth, it's clear only one person can help her bring it all to light: Ezra.
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.
I am slowly finishing this book but a lot slower than I had intended. The issue I am having is, I love the layout and how the all the info is given, but I am missing the character connection. Like I don’t feel like I am reading an actual story. The book has a TON of characters but none that I can really say I like or not. Plus I am so confused with the amount of characters. I know the story sort of revolves around Kady and Ezra but even them I am not really connecting too. I do plan to finish the book but I just don’t see it happening before this post and I have been reading almost every day. I love the format of the book and how the pages are laid out but I am missing the actually story flow, it’s hard to keep up with and sometimes I feel like things aren’t meshing very well within the “story” like honestly sort of have an idea what is going on but I am not sure if that is really what is going on because each person tells things different.
I actually will say I recommend it because it is a cool book to read and I am hoping to finish it by the end of October, I really want to see how the “story” play outs. I feel like I will be missing something good if I don’t finish it. It’s totally not a DNF but I am pretty sure it wont be 4 or 5 stars either. At the moment it’s sitting at a solid 3.
Thanks for stopping by to check out my review.
Have a great day and Happy Reading!
