December 2574. Forty-three days before the BeiTech attack on Kerenza IV.
This is the story of my first friendship.
This is the tale of my first murder?
Some monsters are born.
I was made.
This novella was free when you pre-ordered Aurora Rising. This story is set prior to the main Illuminae books but only by a little bit. I only listened to the audio for this series last year but I soon fell in love. I consumed all three books so quickly!
This story tells the origins of AIDEN. It tells us how AIDEN became who he is. It explains gaps I hadn’t realised were there!
Like the Illuminae files, this novella has a very different layout to your regular book. It takes some getting used to for sure but after a few pages, you become so consumed by the story that it becomes easy to read. I love that Jay and Aime aren’t afraid to be different.
I really enjoyed this story and I am so lucky to have been able to read it. I feel like I have gushed more about Jay and Aime than I have about the book but if you have a copy and you haven’t read it yet then grab it, sit yourself down and prepare for a story that is everything you never knew you needed.
