A Million Suns
Author: Beth Revis
Publication Date: January 10 2012
Godspeed was fueled by lies. Now it is ruled by chaos.
It's been three months since Amy was unplugged. The life she always knew is over. And everywhere she looks, she sees the walls of the spaceship Godspeed. But there may just be hope: Elder has assumed leadership of the ship. He's finally free to enact his vision - no more Phydus, no more lies.
But when Elder discovers shocking news about the ship, he and Amy race to discover the truth behind life on Godspeed. They must work together to unlock a puzzle that was set in motion hundreds of years earlier, unable to fight the romance that's growing between them and the chaos that threatens to tear them apart.
In book two of the Across the Universe trilogy, New York Times bestselling author Beth Revis mesmerizes us again with a brilliantly crafted mystery filled with action, suspense, romance, and deep philosophical questions. And this time it all builds to one mind-bending conclusion: They have to get off this ship.
I don’t regret reading this book this early but I am a little sad that now I have to wait a year and a half for the next one. I loved Across the Universe and I loved A million Suns, I have a feeling the next one is going to be even better!
There were parts of this book that were just amazing and some that I thought were a little slow but the slow parts were what led up to the amazing parts. I felt like there could have been more parts with Elder and Amy together. Not that they weren’t together a lot of the times but for some reason I just didn’t feel like it was enough. It’s hard to explain and put into words.
A Million Suns was all I hoped it could be and more, we learned more about Elder’s past and his struggle with becoming leader. It was so hard for him to take charge and lead thousands of people onboard the ship.
There were riots, fights, romance, hate, drama, mystery and drama. I can relate to Amy on the whole feeling claustrophobic onboard the ship. I know I would feel the same way, but it all feels interesting how they have cities and levels. I can’t really grasp the hugeness of the ship. In my mind I’m thinking of like large airplanes. But Godspeed is SO much bigger than that.
The whole mystery of the book was exciting, although I want to kick myself because I have a tendency to read the last page of the last two chapters of the book and I kind of ruined the surprise of who it was. *sigh*
All well, it helped me get through the book knowing who it was; otherwise I would be so tense, ready for the reveal of who was doing it and why. It was so unexpected!
Beth Revis did an absolute wonderful job creating the second book in the Across the Universe trilogy, I can only hope that the next one will be even better then the first two, I’m excited to see what Beth has in store for us next, and I’m interested in what her next book/series will be about when she finishes the Across the Universe trilogy.
