Briefing Note – Interview w/ Amie Kaufman + Jay Kristoff

“We wake up to people screaming at us every day.” – Amie Kaufman

If you’ve read any (or all) of The Illuminae Files, you know exactly why that is. It’s hard to pinpoint which moment invoked the most intense reaction because LET’S BE REAL – the books are full of the feels. We could have spent 10 minutes screaming obscenities at these two. Instead, we nicely asked questions while screaming inside. Check it out!

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, heroes will fall, and hearts will be broken.
