Review: Gemina by Amie Kaufmann and Jay Kristoff

4 stars

Gemina cover (link to Goodreads)

This is the sequel to Illuminae, which I reviewed in my very first post in this topic. This book took longer to get into than the first, but once I was in, I think I actually liked it better. Essentially, the last surviving ship of the fleet is rushing toward something like DS9, a space station near the entrance to a wormhole. This book takes place on the station itself and centers around the daughter of the station commander and a teenaged boy who is her drug supplier (he was born into a gang family but is generally a good guy). I didn’t like them until after everything went terribly wrong, but once they showed their true colors, I warmed up to them. I’m definitely rooting for the good guys and will finish the series as soon as my hold comes in. I also want to get my hands on a physical copy.
