Book Synopsis
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. 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.

My Thoughts

Loved it. A Million Suns is the second on Across The Universe series. A Million Suns picks up few months after where the first book Across The Universe ended. Amy and Elder still in Godspeed trying to figure out the secrets that Eldest had covered up and chasing after clues Orion had left for Amy to reveal one of those big secret.

In this book Elder is suppose to become the Eldest (captain/one man government) of the ship. But he is reluctant to be called as Eldest. He is unsure of himself, he tries to stick by doing the right thing but after putting off the Phydus in the ship. However after being off of the Phydus, crew has a mind of their own as there starts a riot on the ship. Amy chasing behind Orion's clues, and yes she still hates him. But her eagerness to know the truth thrives away that issue. She and Elder eventually comes across the actual truth and it pretty much controls the entire story. A new villain rises. And I have to this new villain has been suspicious since I read book 1. He was always saying stuff that made you think he is on your side but then sneaked up on you.

A Million Suns progress the character a lot after Across The Universe. The relationship between Amy and Elder is still in developing stage but this time Amy has more confidence about her feelings for Elder by the end of this book.

I am a dork so space and constellations are my thing. So the end verdict, if you loved Across The Universe, A Million Suns is a must read.

Another pretty cover of A Million Suns.
