The Cloudlibrary app is an excellent source for audiobooks, thanks Littens for introducing me to it. Finally finished listening to the final novel in this YA sci-fi trilogy. I really like the different voices and the sound effects. Let‘s just say space battles come to life and make you feel part of the action. Two thumbs up 👍

Just finished the trilogy taking place in different #ImaginaryPlaces.

Ok, I feel better now.

Well, I did it. I finished Obsidio - and I loved every single minute of it! This whole series is so amazing, from the unique formatting to the unforgettable characters and, of course, the incredible audiobook production. (I know, I sound like a broken record, but it's true!) 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

I'm in the middle of Obsidio right now and I'm loving it, but I just don't want this amazing series to end! And I am so worried that some of these brilliant characters won't survive - I mean, we're talking about Amie and Jay here, sooo... 😳 It's making me anxious. I just need my faves to be okay!

I finished this almost a year ago. And have forgotten the major plot points. The first book was cool and new, but the 2nd and 3rd largely just felt very - same song second verse - rather than like moving along a story arc.

Favourite: Obsidio. I just loved the conclusion to the Illumimae Files and the whole series became a favourite of mine. I know I will re-read it over and over again.

Least favourite: The Fork, the Witch and the Worm. It's still a nice book but I expected much more from it. Not much happens.

Honourable mention: Unravel Me and Ignite Me. I just freaking love this!!

Obsidio is the final book in the unique/entertaining Illuminae Files series. It wasn‘t as exciting as the first two books, but the authors did a good job of reaching a satisfying conclusion. It draws together the characters from the first two books, and introduces new ones, and I enjoyed the rapid switch between storylines. I found the series a bit too formulaic, but it sends a strong message of believing in yourself and fighting for what is right

TheSpineView I love the ending! Makes me wonder about Aiden. 9mo
candority @TheSpineView I know right? The authors are writing another series together. I haven‘t looked to see what it is about (if they‘ve even announced that), but it would be cool if Aidan was in it! 9mo

An amazing end to an amazing ride! This has become possibly my favourite trilogy I've ever read. It definitely deserves all the hype it gets.
I loved all the characters and quickly fell in love with the new additions to the Illuminae group. What I loved most about the whole series is how all the small pieces fall into place and create a cruel but intriguing story. I already know this will be one of the books I will re-read over and over again.

I'm reading Obsidio while I wait for my kindergartner to get out of school (especially since it's so cold) and I came upon this. There may be more meaning behind this if I knew more space science stuff, but this can't be a coincidence. Hello random FF7 reference 😆 #AmReading #IlluminaeFiles #WhenNerdomsCollide #MommyBookworm

Hello! It feels like I‘ve been gone forever, but I‘m ready to dive into the #24in48 readathon tomorrow. I‘ve packed my #TBR stack with graphic novels and fast-paced sci-fi (I‘ve also got the last few books in an old favorite urban fantasy series ready to go on my iPad), and I plan to spend the whole day wrapped in blankets, reading and drinking pots of tea!

Loved this book. The last of the series, it did a great job of wrapping everything up in a fantastical finale that every great "ragtag group takes on fighting injustice against a giant corporation" story needs. The humor was dry and quick and witty. It gave me feels towards computer software and towards a ship for goodness sakes. That's great writing ? I recommend this trilogy!

A thrilling finale to The Illuminae Files trilogy! For some reason I didn‘t love this story as much as the first two. Maybe it‘s because I waited so long to pick it up? I‘m not sure, but I wasn‘t as invested in the characters and at times the story seemed to drag a bit. Overall though, I have to say it was a solid ending and I still highly recommend the series!

After 2 books of hard-core sci-fi terrors, the tonal shift to more human horrors of genocide/war crimes was jarring.

I feel satisfied, it all got tied up, but also emotionally manipulated. At the end, random characters were killed off just because. And the times I actually did mourn, it was immediately undone.

I wasn't invested in the new characters/romances. And everything with AIDAN irritated me, especially what happened with Kady. 🌕🌕🌕🌑🌑

A stunning conclusion to an amazing series. All that I had come to expect from Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. I loved the plot, and the characters, and AIDAN—like omg AIDAN. It was also nice meeting Rhys and seeing things from Beitech‘s side. I thought it had a good conclusion, especially that last chapter. Was it the best in the series? I‘m not sure. BUT it certainly wasn‘t bad at all. This is a series that everyone should give a try.🚀💫🚀
