So here’s the file that almost killed me, Director. You’ll find all intel we could unearth concerning the Kerenza disaster compiled here in hard copy.
Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff


The year is 2575 and two mega-corporations are at war over a planet that’s little more than an ice covered speck.

Too bad nobody thought to warn the people living on it.  With enemy fire raining down on them, Ezra and Kady have to make their escape on the evacuating fleet.  But their troubles are just beginning.  A deadly plague has broken out on one of the spaceships and it is mutating with terrifying results.  Their ship’s protection is seriously flawed.   No one will say what is going on.

As Kady hacks into a tangled web of data to find the truth it’s clear only one person can help her. Ezra. And the only problem with that is they split up before all this trouble started and she isn’t supposed to be talking to him.

In Brief

I think I might actually be in love with a book. It’s an amazing and exciting story told through the means of collated e-mails, chats, surveillance footage summaries, interviews and more.
