Illuminae is one of the most enjoyable books I’ve come across recently. I don’t know what it would be like to read the book, but the audio was marvelous to listen to. The different voices encapsulate the personalities and essences of the different characters, making the story richer and adding depth.

Absolutely compelling action and suspense in a wonderfully unusual package. I never wanted to set it down, and now that I'm done I want to keep reliving it.

On the morning of their break-up Kady and Ezra are thrown together on an escape for their lives as their mining planet is torn apart by a company vying for its natural resources. As refugees they are separated onto two different ships and communication is breaking down between the crews. Kady is a skilled hacker and begins sifting through classified information to find some hard truths. There is so much I want to say about this story but can't because half the joy of reading it is in the mysteries revealed and conspiracies discovered.
