I'm not one to read sci-fi, but "A Million Suns" is so much better than "Across the Universe." Amy and Elder are back, and no, their love situation still isn't solved, though you get to see some nice scenes with them. The twist in the book is crazy and the ending is a cliffhanger, but I can't wait to see the final book, even though they decided to change those beautiful covers to something ugly and boring! ( )

Elder is now the leader of Godspeed, since the death of Eldest. The once smoothly functioning ship is now rife with discontent as the Feeders are now living without the drug, Phydus, being fed to them via the water supply. No longer are they numb to emotion and blindly obedient. Others clamour to lead, and Amy is in danger thanks to lies Eldest told the entire crew about who and what she is. To top it off, Elder has learned that not only is the ship behind schedule, it isn't even moving.

Fights are continually breaking out, several people are murdered, and both Elder and Amy have to fight for their own safety as well as the safety of others. Amy has been given clues to follow to find out the secret of what could lie ahead for them if and when they reach Centauri-Earth by Orion, who is now cryogenically frozen until he can be tried for his crimes. Will they ever be able to reach this planet, or is the ship doomed to sit in space until it has no more power to sustain life?

Another page-turner with the tension building throughout the book. Not something to read if you need to turn in early and get a good night's sleep unless you start early enough in the day to finish it before bedtime. ( )

With Eldest gone, it is up to Elder to lead the the people of Godspeed as they (hopefully) continue their journey to Centauri-Earth. But without Phydus this proves extremely difficult. With everyone finally thinking for themselves, chaos ensues and Elder has to find a way to not only get people back to work to ensure everyone has enough to eat, but he also has to deal with a death count that is swiftly rising and figure out how to stop a mutiny. And if all of that wasn’t difficult enough for a sixteen-year-old to handle, he discovers a startling secret about the engine that has been kept since the Plague. His only hope at fixing this new problem comes in the form of a video message left for Amy by Orion. Orion hints at an even scarier secret and a decision that must be made about it, one he feels only Amy can make. Using clues left by Orion himself, Amy and Elder try to figure out what to do before everyone on board tears the ship apart.

A Million Suns is the second book in the Across the Universe trilogy by Beth Revis. Since this is a sequel, I won’t go into too much detail because I definitely don’t want to ruin this for anybody. This book was action packed from the beginning and, once again, I could not put it down! I didn’t think there would be too much information we didn’t already know about Godspeed since A LOT was revealed in the first book, but I could not have been more wrong. The secrets that have been kept on that ship for centuries is astonishing. But it’s easy to see how no one ever found out the truth since 90% of the ship was drugged out of their minds for just as long. I love being shocked and this book definitely did that over and over again.

I really liked Amy in the first book, but in this one she got on my last nerve. She is super selfish and bossy and gets mad at Elder if he doesn’t do what she wants. He tries to make decisions that will make everyone on board happy and will help them survive because that is his job and what he has been preparing for his whole life. It’s hard for her to understand these decisions sometimes because she grew up in a completely different environment with different people and a different type of government. Because of this, she feels that his decisions aren’t right for the people of Godspeed even though he knows them better than anyone. Granted he is young and impulsive and may not always know exactly what to do, but she should have trusted and believed in him like she constantly says she does. I think he does the right thing at the end even if Amy thinks he is crazy for letting it happen. ( )

Well, that was excellent. Significantly better than the first one. ( )
