Happy holidays! The time has come to cap off an amazing year of OzYA titles and reveal our final book for the year… In 2015, we read Illuminae, in 2016 we read Gemina, and in 2018, the year of its release, we will be reading OBSIDIO by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff.
You probably know what’s what already with this mind-boggling series, but here’s the blurb:
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.
HUZZAH! I’m so rapt to be sharing this final instalment of the ILLUMINAE FILES with you, and I hope you all have a most excellent time reading. You can find this month’s read at Boomerang Books, and use the ‘loveoz’ code to receive free shipping, or grab it here on ebook.
This is our last book of the year: #LoveOzYAbookclub will be on hiatus from now until 2019, so take your time reading, and we’ll all get back together to squee about our favourite time-warping heroes in February.
I’d like to thank everyone who’s joined, read, signal boosted and supported #LoveOzYAbookclub this past year – I can’t believe this group has been running for three years! – and wish you all the very best for the holiday season. Take care and be well: all love and peace from me and my family to you and yours, and I hope you’re looking forward to an exciting New Year of Australian YA books in 2019!
Lots of love
