Hey guys! I’m so excited to share some more amazing bonus content from the upcoming release Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff, the first in a trilogy–THE ILLUMINAE FILES.

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.

Every month there’ll be new content released–you can check out last month’s content HERE. This month, the ship schematics for Alexander-78v, Copernicus and Hypatia are available on the ILLUMINAE FILES WEBSITE. Here’s the ship’s layout for Alexander-78v:

Check out the website to see a larger image as well as the other ships’ layouts. There’s also a new teaser video out, “Emergency on the Alexander-78v”:

And I realised that I totally forgot to show you all the main teaser video for Illuminae:

I’m now even more excited than before to read this one. I CAN’T WAIT. Check back around the same time next month for even more exciting content!
