A Million Suns by Beth Revis
Release: January 10, 2012
Godspeed was once 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. Everywhere she looks, she sees the walls of the spaceship Godspeed.
But there may be hope: Elder has assumed leadership of the ship. He’s finally free to act on his vision—no more Phydus, no more lies.
But when Elder learns shocking news about the ship, he and Amy race to discover the truth behind life on Godspeed. They must work together to unlock a mystery that was set in motion hundreds of years earlier. Their success—or failure—will determine the fate of the 2,298 passengers aboard Godspeed. But with each step, the journey becomes more perilous, the ship more chaotic, and the love between them more impossible to fight.
Beth Revis catapulted readers into the far reaches of space with her New York Times bestselling debut, Across the Universe. In A Million Suns, Beth deepens the mystery 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.
In A Million Suns, our story continues with Elder and Amy. Trust has been lost, lives have been lost, and they are still on the ship.
I will keep this short and sweet because I don’t want to spoil anything.
This is one of the better second books I’ve read. It didn’t feel like a filler, it felt like an actual step in the story, and I enjoyed it.
We see Amy still living on the ship, but things are different from the first book for her. Trust is lost among everyone as secrets were revealed and no one knows what is actually happening anymore.
We see Elder in a different role and he isn’t sure how to handle it.
Again, wonderful writing, wonderful world. It was a little predictable but sometimes predictability is a good thing. If it ended differently, I would have been a little pissed off.
All in all, really enjoying this series. And I haven’t read a series so fast in a while.
