From 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 Donnelly is the station captain’s pampered daughter; Nik Malikov 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.

How excited am I for this book?! I love how they've set up this 'series/trilogy' as each book holding the pieces of a bigger story. It just means that the ending will be massive and far-reaching. Similar to Amie's previous series with Meagan Spooner. And I love the blue of this cover, it'll contrast well with the reds and oranges of the Illuminae cover.


  1. I still have to read this series, but I'm definitely going to pick this up soon. Hope you get to read this soon! :)

  2. This is going to be huge, given the excitement Illuminae generated. :) And I just saw the cover yesterday for this one- I like it too. And this one's on Heimdall, so we get to see what happened there. Can't wait...

  3. I've still got to read Illuminae. Didn't even realize there was going to be a sequel to that one! Great pick!
    Check out my WOW

  4. This is my pick this week so I HAD to stop by and comment :D Illuminae was BRILLIANT and I can't wait to see how hard our minds will be blown in Gemina!! Fantastic pick^^ New follower via GFC, Bloglovin' and Twitter :)
