Pages: 624

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

Prepare yourselves for Illuminae.- --EW.com

You're not in for an ordinary novel experience. . . .- --Bustle.com

A truly interactive experience. . . . A fantastically fun ride.- --MTV.com

Now on to the interview!


Hey Amie and Jay! Welcome back to Two Chicks on Books! I love having you two come by to chat! We’ve done quite a few interviews together so this time I thought we’d do something a bit different! Some “Would You Rather” questions!


Would you rather have the ability to fly or teleport?

Teleport. We’re both fundamentally lazy.

Would you rather have the ability to read minds or to heal?

Heal. Who’d want to read most of the things people are thinking right now?

Would you rather change the past or be able to see into the future?

See into the future. We’d like to know if we have one.

Would you rather be able to visit 100 years in the past or 100 years in the future?

We’d rather visit the past. See aforementioned concerns about future.

Would you rather read one awesome book for the rest of your life or a hundred mediocre books?

If we read the hundred mediocre books, can we have a red pen so we can improve them?

Would you rather eat sweet or salty foods?

We divide them up. Amie takes sweet, Jay takes salty. (Cuz he’s salty. Ahahaha. Yes, Amie’s typing right now.)

Would you rather have a dragon or be a dragon?

ALWAYS BE A DRAGON.

Would you rather get up early or stay up late?

Stay up laaaaaaate. That’s when the words get written.

Would you rather always have the same song stuck in your head or always have 
the same dream at night?

Is it a good dream? We’ll risk the dream.

Would you rather live in space or under the sea?

Everything is cooler in spaaaaaaaaaaace.

Would you rather live without a telephone or a television?

Are we allowed to live without telephones? That would be amazing.

Would you rather live in the city or the country?

We are city mice.

Would you rather be stuck in a house with someone you hate or be stuck in a house alone?

Home alone, please. (Jay doesn’t really like anyone, and Amie’s so polite that she’d be stuck talking to her hated housemate.)


Thanks for having us!
