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 best seller Illuminae continues onboard 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.
Once again told through a compelling dossier of emails, IMs, classified files, transcripts, and schematics, Gemina raises the stakes of the Illuminae Files, hurling listeners into an enthralling new story that will leave them breathless.

Hörbüch- Kunst! Absolut empfehlenswert!
Nach sehr vielen gehörten Hörbüchern ist das meine erste Rezension, da diese Serie alles was ich bisher auf Audible konsumiert habe in den Schatten stellt. Großartige Sprecher, fesselnde Geschichte, super Effekte. Ein wahres Gesammtkunstwerk. Könnte ich mehr als 5 Sterne vergeben, würde ich das tun.

Good but not as good as the first one
I really liked the first one. Gripping story, intriguing characters and interesting motivations. Compared to that, this second one is not even in the same league. I liked some of the performances very much and he structure of storytelling remains unique and engaging. So it is still ok, but regarding the story they went full Disney's "Pretty Teens Save the Galaxy", complete with cheap ending. In my opinion, an A.I. is the most interesting character in this story, which should speak volumes about the rest. When it comes to diversity, giving every disposable side character an exotic name does not mitigate the fact that almost every important character is mainstream attractive and very white American. Also, the fake accent of one of the protagonists is unbearable.
