Review: Gemina

Gemina (The Illuminae Files) - Jay Kristoff, Amie Kaufman

A bit of a slow start, but once this gets going, it is just as action packed as the first book in the series. This volume follows different characters with different problems, but still plenty of blood and mayhem.

 

One of the characters keeps a diary of drawings, which I'll be honest I did not love. It seems younger than she is supposed to be. But the pages are partially soaked in blood, and the mystery of who and how that happened turns out to be central to the plot in a way that is incredibly satisfying.

 

I'm a little sad to see the third volume isn't out until next year.
