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.
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.
The writing style for this series is totally unique. The story is told through a series of hack database files consisting of emails IM’s video transcript and journal entries it definitely makes the whole experience unique.
In the second book we are introduced to a new set of main characters: Hanna and Nik. At first I was a bit reluctant about having new characters but they were highly developed and fun to read about. Once again like Illuminae we have a badass heroine Hanna who added so much action to the story.
Sci-Fi: this time it’s set upon Jump station Heimdall which we know Kady and The Hypatia are heading towards, but if have the same sci-fi feel to it
Survival: Once again the maid characters have to battle it out to survive. There was a lot more intense action which got me holding my breath all the way
I absolutely loved this book maybe even more than Illuminae. It was so much more intense and the plot twist(OMG). I am definably excited for the next book in the series which I know is a long away yet.
