Page Count: 608

ISBN: 9780553499117

Goodreads synopsis: 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. Told through a fascinating dossier of hacked documents—including emails, schematics, military files, IMs, medical reports, interviews, and more—Illuminae is the first book in a heart-stopping, high-octane trilogy about lives interrupted, the price of truth, and the courage of everyday heroes.

From there, he will be poked and prodded by a scientist obsessed with mastering the secrets of death. He will fight in the trenches of World War I. He will run from his nightmares—and from poverty—in Depression-era New York City. And he will become the companion of the most beautiful woman in Hollywood. Love, hate, hope, and horror—Zebulon finds them. But will he ever find redemption? Ambitious and heartbreaking, The Death & Life of Zebulon Finch, Volume 1: At the Edge of Empire is the epic saga of what it means to be human in a world so often lacking in humanity.

  1. I’m so excited for the Dan and Phil book!!! I’ve been watching their videos (especially Dan’s) for a long time now and I even subscribed to their gaming channel :3
    I’m also excited for Tyler Oakley’s book out in October too but I’ve only recently subscribed to his channel.
    The Death and Life of Zebulon Finch sounds really unique!

  2. I’m so excited to read The Death & Life of Zebulon Finch like the synopsis and the cover (okay the cover looks a little ugly to me BUT I DIGRESS). I think I’m just excited by the historical aspect of the novel.
    I usually don’t bother reading memoirs or books written by YouTubers but I’m definitely debating on reading Dan and Phil’s book. I adore the humor used in their channels so much.
