Spotlight: Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

I have some exciting news about the upcoming series The Illuminae Files which will be releasing October 20, 2015. Random House will be revealing new content about the first book as the release date closes in. I have visited the Illuminae site @ IlluminaeFiles.com and viewed Kady's and Ezra's profiles and I have to tell you guys that I'm awfully thrilled about what's to come. So, go ahead and check it out. Here's some praise:

PRAISE FOR

The Illuminae Files_01

« “Ambitious, heartbreaking, and out-of-this-world awesome.”Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“An exuberant mix of space opera, romance, zombies, hackers, and political thrills, told with eccentric aplomb. ILLUMINAE is both the weirdest and most heartfelt thing you'll read this year. ”

Illuminae (Illuminae Files, #1) by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
Publisher: Knopf Books for Young Readers
Release Date: October  20, 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.
