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. 

With time running out, a final battle will be waged on land and in space, heros will fall, and hearts will be broken.

Now on to my review

Well I’ve got no words for the awesomeness that was Obsidio! But f*** this was amazing!!!

I won't be able to talk about what I want to without spoiling everything about Obsidio. It's funny when I first read Illuminae I liked it I just wasn't obsessed with it like so many others but, after I had put it down I started to appreciate the book for what it was, and that was an awesome sci-fi book. Then I read Gemina and I fell in love! I already liked Kady and Ezra but meeting Hanna and Nik (and Ella) solidified my love for this series! Normally I'm not one who likes it when a book series jumps POV's either but the way they incorporated Kady and Ezra and even AIDAN into book 2 was bloody brilliant! And that's what they did in Obsidio as well! We get to meet Asha (Kady's cousin) and Rhys who are completely new characters with their own personalities that you get to know but, your old faves are back as well and the way they all come together to destroy BeiTech is awesome, heart wrenching, and bittersweet. I'm not going to tell you all how this ends or even spoil any of the story just know that it rocks in the best possible way and get this when it comes out on March 13th! You're going to want to drop everything and read this one!

Go see Amie & Jay on Tour! These two are awesome and you won't regret meeting them!

Haven't started the Illuminae Files yet? Now's the time to start!


  1. Illuminae reminded me why I love to read sci-fi. I have Gemina purchased, so of course I want to read Obsidio.

    1. Finished Gemina this past Monday. Loved it even more than Illuminae. I'm hoping the upward trend continues with Obsidio.

  2. I absolutely love the covers for this series! The design of them is perfect for creating an air of mystery, and many of my friends have asked about Illuminae after they say me reading it.

  3. I can’t WAIT to read this! I’m sure it’ll be as good as the first two. :)

  4. Good luck to the ragtag underground resistance! I'll have to read all the books!

  5. I would love to read this whole series. Thanks for the post!

  6. I’m reading Illuminae right now! I’m loving it so far!!
