Asha Grant came to Kerenza to escape her past. Too bad he just caught up with her.
Asha survived BeiTech's initial assault and has been working undercover with the hopelessly outmatched resistance ever since. That, and figuring out what to do with the secret she's stashed in the crawlspace. The last thing she expected to worry about was her ex-boyfriend, but Rhys Lindstrom just landed planetside, and he's looking finer than ever in his new BeiTech uniform. Is he her way out - or a guarantee she never gets off this frozen rock alive?
But Asha's not the only one with problems. Her cousin Kady's ragtag band of survivors are headed for Kerenza - without enough oxygen to last the journey. Oh, and there might be an insurrection brewing. But when have little things like that ever stopped the Illuminae Group?
Too bad time isn't on their side. With BeiTech hurrying to repair their damaged jump gate, and a mass extermination planned for the Kerenza civilians, only a miracle could save them now. And everyone knows that miracles are just statistical probabilities ... right?
From bestselling author duo Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff - and once again featuring select journal entries from Marie Lu-comes the heart-stopping, heartbreaking finale in the trilogy that broke the mould and has been called 'stylistically mesmerizing' and 'out-of-this-world-awesome.'
Amie and Jay have again paired their writing talents to create the conclusion to 'The Illuminae Files' trilogy. "Obsidio" is an epic tale, a wonderful and fitting end to this awesome series.
Two new main characters join ranks with the Illuminae Group to tell what happened on Kerenza after the initial refugee escape. Asha is a resistance fighter who is unexpectedly faced with the boy she thought she would grow old with. They have not seen each other for three years and Rhys now works for BeiTech - the company invading Kerenza. Can Asha convince Rhys to turn against his employer?
Tying together all three storylines is my favourite character AIDAN - the artificial intelligence residing in the computer on board the spaceship as well as Kady's handheld unit - he has again made hard decisions so Kady can survive. Can a machine understand love? I think AIDAN can.
"Obsidio" brought me to tears, there was much laughter and adventure, really loved this story. - Kerryn (QBD)
"Obsidio" is a masterpiece; it is all I could have wanted and more. The characters, the plot, the messages… I loved it all.
"Obsidio" is surprisingly political and has a large focus on the ramifications of war. But more than anything, it showcases the complicated, multifaceted nature of humanity.
Though I could go on forever, I will simply say this: everything ties in together, AIDAN is the best, the girl power is real, many emotions will be felt, perspective is everything & Amie and Jay are evil geniuses.
Read it, listen to it, and force it upon your friends because The Illuminae Files deserves all the hype and more. - Melissa (QBD)
