A MILLION SUNS by Beth Revis

Author: Beth Revis
Publisher: Razorbill
Release Date: January 10, 2011
Number of Pages: 386
Source of Book: Bought the Hardcover on release day
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.
It's been so long since I read the first book, and I've read so many similar books in between that I couldn't remember how much I really liked the world that Beth has created here, but boy do I ever! I'm really glad I went back to this series. It picked up right where ACROSS THE UNIVERSE left off and sucked me right back into the story. It was suspenseful, and there's tension and secrets and philosophical dilemmas and reveals and manipulations and surprises, and it all makes an engaging story. I was definitely surprised by what ultimately happened in this story. If you read the first book, you'll definitely want to read this sequel so you can continue the story with Amy and Elder and the Godspeed. Their relationship is intriguing and the world is engaging and there is realistic tension in this space science-fiction story as they fight to survive and discover things about their ship that they never could have imagined. I'm looking forward to seeing where this story goes in the final book in the trilogy with SHADES OF EARTH in January!

  1. This series is absolutely great! Glad you picked it back up! It took me a while to remember what had happened in the year since the last book but when I did it slowly returned to me.
