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.


Wie bereits in meiner Rezension über Illuminae angekündigt, habe ich die letzten Tage damit verbracht, mich auf die Veröffentlichung von Obsidio vorzubereiten und innerhalb kürzester Zeit den zweiten Band der Illuminae Files von Amie Kaufman und Jay Kristoff zu verschlingen. And chum: It was amazing!
Ich habe die folgende Rezension zur besseren Orientierung und Spoiler-Vermeidung mal ein bisschen aufgegliedert. Was die Spoiler angeht, habe ich versucht, diese so gut es geht zu vermeiden, aber wer Illuminae noch nicht gelesen hat [und ich wüsste keinen plausiblen Grund dafür!] und möglichst unwissend an die Buchreihe herangehen möchte, dem empfehle ich trotzdem, lieber nicht weiterzulesen.

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.
