A Million Suns by Beth Revis
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.
Oh my goodness. Those were the words out of my mouth after I finished this book. Within the first chapter of the book, everything changed and the plot never stopped rolling. In the entire book, I cannot remember a single slow part, it was one of the few books that I actually lost myself in- I was surprised when I finished. And when I did finish, man was it ever a cliffhanger, leaving you hanging in the moment of truth, a truly destiny changing moment. The characters underwent a lot since the events of Across the Universe, changing and evolving along the way, making them even more enjoyable and entertaining to read about. The writing, oh my goodness, the writing. Beth Revis is a master of words, forcing you to become very involved in the tale she weaves, never loosening her grip until the very end. The story followed the quality of the writing, being a roller coaster ride that was even better than the first book, disproving the notion of sequels always being worse. If you haven't read Across the Universe or A Million Suns yet, I highly recommend that you do, they are the perfect mix of adventure and raw emotions; addictive to read and impossible to stop thinking about. For all of these reasons, I give A Million Suns a 5/5.
