Illuminae is a gripping science fiction, thriller made up of files. The story is told in files, emails and notes. The story begins with a report of everything that happened on the three spaceships after surviving and escaping an attack on their planet. The ship that attacked them is still trailing them, hoping to finish off the job. Katy and Ezra go through trials and struggles trying to survive when some bad things start happening and a mysterious disease starts spreading.
I really wasn’t going to read this, I just knew I wouldn’t like it because of the way it was written, but I was SO WRONG! Illuminae was such an amazing, thrilling read. The files were very easy to read and once I started it I couldn’t put it down. My heart broke, I laughed, I was on the edge of my seat. I love Katy she was a sassy, smart, bad ass. Ezra was hilarious and their connection and relationship was realistic. The virus that sweeps through the ships was so nerve wracking, and you never knew what was going to happen. This was a lot more brutal and violent then I assumed at first but it worked, it worked so well! I can’t say too much without giving too much away, but just do it. Don’t let the fact that it is written differently scare you off, just read it. Trust me, someone who didn’t think she would like the files!
