WE REMEMBER: OBSIDIO by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff, Blog Tour + Giveaway


LIVE A LIFE WORTH DYING FOR.....but what if one of your favorite series is over and you find it difficult to move on? 

That is how I am feeling now that The Illuminae Files has come to it's ultimate conclusion. 

Amie and Jay wrote these books and it has been the most intensely exhilerating adventure that I am so sorry to see end. I cannot imagine not having another book in this series to look forward to because each novel gave us beloved characters and story arcs that stay were simply amazing. Yet, despite my sadness at witnessing this series end I feel that they did a fantastic of bringing everything together.

I am sorry for my vagueness, but believe me when I say that if you adored ILLUMINAE and GEMINA then you are going to absorb OBSIDIO like a sponge. Each chapter, illustration and ultimate adventure....will stay with you and make you savor each word. For those of you that have not read this series, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? Seriously, I am not a huge fan of sci-fi reads but I absolutely adore this series and think it is a beautiful example that great storytelling can anyone a fan and it will always be a favorite.

I highly encourage you to enjoy this series via audiobook while having the book nearby. The full cast audio is so worth it, I promise.


Thank you to the publisher for an early copy in exchange for an honest review

Kady, Ezra, Hanna, and Nik narrowly escaped with their lives from the attacks on Heimdall station and now find themselves crammed with 2,000 refugees on the container ship, Mao. With the jump station destroyed and their resources scarce, the only option is to return to Kerenza—but who knows what they'll find seven months after the invasion? 

Meanwhile, Kady's cousin, Asha, survived the initial BeiTech assault and has joined Kerenza's ragtag underground resistance. When Rhys—an old flame from Asha's past—reappears on Kerenza, the two find themselves on opposite sides of the conflict.

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.

The sci-fi saga that began with the breakout bestseller Illuminae continues on board the Jump Station Heimdall, where two new characters will confront the next wave of the BeiTech assault.

Hanna is the station captain’s pampered daughter; Nik 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.

Formats: Paperback


It certainly filled the Battlestar Galactica-shaped hole in my heart.- --Victoria Aveyard, bestselling author of The Red Queen
Read the New York Times bestselling blockbuster that critics are calling -out-of-this-world awesome.- The first in an epic sci-fi series unlike anything else out there.

Kady thought breaking up with Ezra was the worst thing she'd ever been through. That was before her planet was invaded. Now, with enemy fire raining down on them, Kady and Ezra are forced to fight their way onto one of the evacuating craft, with an enemy warship in hot pursuit.

But the warship could be the least of their problems. 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 biggest threat; and nobody in charge will say what's really going on. As Kady plunges into a web of data hacking to get to the truth, it's clear only one person can help her bring it all to light: Ezra.

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.


Brace yourself, because you're about to be immersed in a mindscape that you'll never want to leave.- --Marie Lu, author of the bestselling Legend series
