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’m not sure how to start this review, so I’ll start off with this: did you read my review of Across the Universe? Yeah, my thoughts are pretty similar to that. Or, if you want me to sum it up in one word, I could say: WOAH.
A Million Suns takes off a few months where Across the Universe left off. Though this time, the people aboard Godspeed are stirring up a storm – with Elder and Amy smack down in the center. Amy, the freak with red hair, pale skin, and green eyes, sees threats everywhere – especially now that the people can think for themselves. Elder sees threats everywhere too – though they aren’t after him exactly, they’re after his position. They don’t see a sixteen year old as an able leader anymore, even if he was born for that job specifically.
But there’s more to it now. Amy and Elder stumble upon a clue, that leads to another, and to another. Until they find out the secret that had been hidden for years. But the truth only leads them to more questions – why? Why was the truth hidden from them all for so long?
Beth Revis stuns us again. With an unexpected storyline that will leave you breathless, A Million Suns is thrilling from page one. You won’t want to put it down, you won’t want it to end. You won’t know where the next twist will carry you and your surprised self away. With A Million Suns, not only is there an incredible plot with unpredictable twists and turns that will leave your mind reeling – there’s also philosophy. Meaning. Words that will make you think, as much as our protagonists.
And in the end, Beth Revis ties every loose thread together, while at the same time, leaving you ecstatic for book three. So what are you waiting for? If you thought Across the Universe was unbelievable, just pick up A Million Suns. You won’t know what hit you.
