(The Illuminae Files #1)

Author: Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff 
Publisher:  Knopf Books for Young Readers
Expected Release:  October 20th, 2015

This morning, Kady thought breaking up with Ezra was the hardest thing she’d have to do.

This afternoon, her planet was invaded.

The year is 2575, and two rival megacorporations are at war over a planet that’s little more than an ice-covered speck at the edge of the universe. Too bad nobody thought to warn the people living on it. With enemy fire raining down on them, Kady and Ezra—who are barely even talking to each other—are forced to fight their way onto an evacuating fleet, with an enemy warship in hot pursuit.

But their problems are just getting started. A deadly plague has broken out and is mutating, with terrifying results; the fleet's AI, which should be protecting them, may actually be their enemy; and nobody in charge will say what’s really going on. As Kady hacks into a tangled web of data to find the truth, it's clear only one person can help her bring it all to light: the ex-boyfriend she swore she'd never speak to again.

Told through a fascinating dossier of hacked documents—including emails, schematics, military files, IMs, medical reports, interviews, and more—Illuminae is the first book in a heart-stopping, high-octane trilogy about lives interrupted, the price of truth, and the courage of everyday heroes.

    Old Follower :)

    1. I have the ARC and cannot wait to dive in!

  2. Can’t wait for this one either! I’m so jealous of people who got the beautiful ARC, haha :P Great WoW pick!!

    1. I'm with you on being jealous. Yes, I have the ARC, but I must have an old one because it's paperback and not the new hardcover ARCs that are now floating around.

  3. I have an ARC of this book and I plan on reading it very soon! I have heard nothing but wonderful things about this book so far!
    My WOW

    1. I'm with you, I plan on reading this soon!

  4. This sounds so interesting -- I've seen a few people reading ARCS of this lately but don't want to spoil myself! What a great cover, too!

    My WoW!
