Title: Gemina (Illuminae Files #2)
Author: Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Synopsis:
Moving to a space station at the edge of the galaxy was always going to be the death of Hanna’s 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 captain’s pampered daughter; Nik the reluctant member of a notorious crime family. But while the pair are struggling with the realities of life aboard the galaxy's 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 station's wormhole means the space-time continuum might be ripped in two before dinner. Soon Hanna and Nik aren’t just fighting for their own survival; the fate of everyone on the Hypatia—and possibly the known universe—is in their hands.
But relax. They've totally got this. They hope.
Once again told through a compelling dossier of emails, IMs, classified files, transcripts, and schematics, Gemina raises the stakes of the Illuminae Files, hurling readers into an enthralling new story that will leave them breathless.

Initial thoughts:
After reading Illuminae, I had a feeling that I was going to have trouble getting through this book as I had the first, but I loved the story so much that I decided to keep going and push through the processing complications I had experienced. I really enjoy science fiction stories and wanted to see what was in store for Kady and Ezra after everything that happened in the first book. Especially after that cliffhanger that we were left with! So, with that, I jumped right into reading this book.

Plot:
What I liked:
I missed Kady, Ezra and AIDEN from the first book as this story follows a different set of characters, but I did enjoy learning about what was happening at the station. The plot of the story was well paced and full of realistic characters that reacted as I would have expected them to in response to the pressures placed upon them. Even the protagonists were human in many aspects and showed emotion amidst stressful situations (of course some were described as being more robotic in expression, but I digress).
I loved the humor that was put into the story as well as the sass of the characters. They were witty and clever, bringing out the severity of a situation while still staying real and coping using humor.

What I didn't like:
Again, this was tough book to get through because of the constant switching of fonts and occasional artistic texts. Though it added to the atmosphere of the story, I found it difficult to read and process. So, the book took me much longer to finish. I am assuming that Obsido is going to be the same way.

Characters:
Hanna Donnelly: She was so much more than just your pretty party girl. Hannah was my favorite character (Even above Kady which was weird to me) and I loved following her around and seeing just what she was going to do in certain situations. She was smart, witty, and strong and I found myself drawn to her character.
Nik Malikov: The bad boy with a heart of gold. I loved Nik and I found his character really endearing and I was rooting for him. He was silly, and though he toes the line of what he should and shouldn’t say, I felt like he knew when to stop and take a step back.
Ella Malikova: I loved this girl! She was sassy, but still a good person. I liked reading her thoughts on the situation aboard the station.
Travis Falk and his Team: He was crazy and I thought he was a fantastic villain, and his team was very quick thinking (for the most part). I liked how they all worked together. I would equate them to a pack of dogs to be honest on how they hunted and how they showed no mercy.


Overall:
This book was fantastic and I seriously loved it! It was a roller coaster ride from start to finish with so much conflict riddled throughout it. I really think that the story was so well written and executed. I liked how the beginning and end come together as if in a trial setting. The first book was like a warning while the second is the actual follow through. The characters were fantastic and I actually enjoyed this book a little more than Illuminae and cannot wait to start the third book, Obsidio. ( )

Loved it. Loved the love triangle. Loved Ella and all the characters and that goldfish. Loved all the character dying trolls. ( )

What an awesome sequel! I was a little nervous that I wouldn't like the new characters, Hanna and Nik as much as I liked Kady and Ezra from the first book but I really enjoyed them. The old characters do show up and I really enjoyed those parts. I also really enjoyed the new location of this book on the space station Heimdall, which was fun to see because it's a bit more of a permanent residence than a fleeing ship is. The action in this book is just as intense as the first book in this series and the characters have just as much to deal with. In the first book there were space battles, deadly outbreaks, and killer AI and there are just as many bad scenarios in this book so if you didn't like that aspect of the first book you probably won't like this one. The book continues to be written in the format of instant messages, emails, video footage, and pretty pictures that we saw in the first book. Again I am a little biased to love books written like this. I read a lot of books written in formats like this when I was younger so they kind of have a special place for books like this. I did also like the story but I didn't love it quite as much as the first one. this was still a 5-star book for me but I felt like the plot points were a little more convoluted than the first one. This story also ended on a bit of a cliff-hanger so I really want to read the next book now but it's not coming out for a while. Can't wait for it. ( )

While I love the addition of psychedelic aliens, a super elite crew of mercenaries slowly being picked off, and parallel worlds, I didn't enjoy Gemina as much as Illuminae. Even though Kady was annoying, it seems as though Hanna was even more annoying - an outcast who's really good at computers/hacking I can swallow, but a spoiled rich girl who's somehow a combat expert? Not so much.

I like Nik a lot better than Ezra, though - he was sweet, not too cocky, and his relationship with Ella was cute. Ella was a little bit like Kady (a little more annoying), but while she was the third main character she didn't seem to have an overbearing presence throughout.

AGAIN, Kaufman and Kristoff have this obsession with happy endings after giving you false ones (in this case, two false endings - three if you count ,spoiler.the cliffhanger of Ella being found by the alien)! Give us some real stakes - let people suffer and die! ( )

Loved it as much as the first. The full cast audio version is the way to go. I got chills. Can't wait for the next one. ( )
