The Illuminae Files# 3 Title Reveal and Competition

I’m Back (just for a while):

Hey guys hope your all well. Long time no see I know. I’d like to say I have been busy reading or revising away for my upcoming A Level exams but I haven’t. To be honest I have just been lazy with life in general but I’m hoping to get back into a regular blogging routine once exams are done with.

Title Reveal:

ANYWAYS today I have great news for all Illuminae fans out there. The third book’s title has finally been revealed. *drum rolls*…..


Now I hope we can agree the colour of the cover will not be black but I am personally hoping for a spacey purple. Some say green, I guess that will look good too, Let me know in the comments section what colour you want it to be.

However there is some bad news before I get onto the competition section. Many of you may know that the original release date was Fall 2017 however the release date has now been pushed back to March 2018. All I can say to this is I hope it’s worth the 1 and 1/2 year wait. It better be. JOKES. But my expectations are really high for this finale.


So Jay Kristoff recently posted a block post on his blog announcing an epic competition. Just like he and Amie Kaufman did last time for Gemina, they are offering us fans the chance to have our names as part of the casualty list for Obsidio.Yayyy for being killed. Jokes….

Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff (Non Spoiler Review)|TeenBookLit101

NON SPOILER: Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff (The Illuminae Files #2) 5/5 Stars


TITLE: Gemina

AUTHOR: Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

PUBLISHING DETAILS: October 20th 2016 by Oneworld Publications

PAGES: 672 pages

STARS: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Synopsis (Goodreads):

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.

Writing Style:

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.

Character Development:

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

Overall thoughts:

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.

Top Quote:

“You might only get one shot. So shoot.”
