Title: A Million Suns
Series: Across the Universe #2
Author: Beth Revis
From the Publisher: 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.
To echo my previous post – Beth Revis is one hell of a writer. I didn’t feel quite as unsettled reading this one, but I think it’s because Eldest is dead. He was the character that fueled most of my frustration in the first one.
This one has no less frustration, but it’s handled differently. There’s no lying to the masses – Elder is truly trying to do his best and be honest with every one. But, as is to be expected, the masses don’t handle it very well. One of my favorite things about these books is the way Revis writes humanity – she really nails it. Some people are good and some people are bad – and crowds always fuel the fire.
One of the twists – toward the end – should have been predictable. I mean, really it should have been. But Revis wrote her characters so well that it ended up completely surprising me.
I loved it! I absolutely can’t wait to read the next one – I’m betting it will be the best one yet.
