A Million Suns by Beth Revis

Thursday, December 15, 2011
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.

Goodreads Summary

Another innovative book in Beth Revis' series.  The reader is reintroduced to Amy and Elder, both much the same from the first book.  Amy remains curious, intelligent, and brave while Elder errs on the side of caution, remains in love with Amy, and prefers to ignore the harsher aspects of his newest job. 

The plot was a quick read.  The reader will continue to turn the pages until the very end of this book.  Amy discovers a hidden mystery and is determined to solve it, no matter the cost.  Elder, on the other hand, focuses more on the ships' residents and how he will continue to act as leader.  Amy and Elder's romance is more developed and believable in this book than the last.  The reader will truly believe that Elder will do just about anything for Amy.  Amy clearly loves Elder, but she utilizes her brain and doesn't follow him all over the place like a lovesick puppy.

Revis manages to keep the readers' excitement levels high throughout the book.  There are so many scenes with action, suspense, mystery, and romance that the reader will find it impossible to stop the book without regretting it.  The ships' residents are no longer under the numbing/forgetful effects of the medicine and are restless and angry, Amy's unique looks and mannerisms are under more and more inspection and glaring looks, Elder's immaturity is highlighted (come on, he's still a teenager), and there are many antagonists in the background just waiting to take Elder down. 

Overall, this is a great book.  The reader will be praying for a third after setting this book down after many rereads (hint to the awesome author).  This book is recommended to teens/young adults/adults.

  1. This sounds really good, but I need to read the first one still. I love the idea of a Sci-Fi romance.
