The explosive conclusion to the bestselling Illuminae Files!
Kady, Ezra, Hanna, and Nik are back, stuck on another, even small spaceship, and while BeiTech isn't chasing them anymore, now they are in a race against the oxygen reserves.
BeiTech is still throwing their weight around on Kerenza, forcing miners to meet grueling quotas, and holding families hostage. Kady's cousin, Asha, is working at the hospital, patching up soldiers and sneaking supplies to the feeble resistance. Seemed life couldn't get any more complicated - until her ex from another planet shows up in a BeiTech uniform...
Told in the same unusual format as the first two, volume III unbelievably lives up to the preceding volumes and had me reading until 1am, laughing, crying and yelling at characters. Read all three and enjoy the wild ride. — Leah Moore
From bestselling author duo Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff comes the exciting finale in the trilogy that broke the mold and has been called "stylistically mesmerizing" and "out-of-this-world-awesome."
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.
