On board the Jump Station Heimdall, Hanna is the captain's pampered daughter; Nik a member of a notorious crime family. While they 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. 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. The fate of the Hypatia-- and possibly the known universe-- is in their hands.

Summary

Summary

A New York Times Bestseller

Brace yourself for GEMINA--the highly anticipated sequel to the book critics called "out-of-this-world awesome"-- featuring journal illustrations by bestselling author Marie Lu!

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.

Horn Book Review

As spaceship Hypatia nears Jump Station Heimdall, the corporation BeiTech plots to forcefully take over Heimdall and destroy witnesses on Hypatia. Only station chief's daughter Hanna and crime-syndicate member Nik stand in their way. Told through documents and transcripts (like predecessor Illuminae), the story's well-timed tension, twists, heartache, and humor will keep readers hooked as the intricate plot unwinds.
