Illuminae

Authors: Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

Genre: YA/Sci-Fi/Space Opera

Grade: B

Kady and Ezra have just broken up when their planet is attacked and decimated. The two teenagers along with the survivors are refugees on the ships of the only people who answered the distress call. Two civilian cruisers and a huge and wounded military ship piloted by an injured AI called Aidan.

There’s a whole lot going on in this book. AI’s, love, angst, being a refugee, biological warfare, outbreaks, and on and on.

This is going to sound a little strange because I liked the story despite everything that was going on and I loved the presentation but as they say the devil is in the details and I had some problems with the details.
