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.

I don't know how its possible, but A Million Suns was infinitely better than Across the Universe. This was not the filler book in a trilogy, this was a full out action packed, thrilling story full of mystery, betrayal, and desperation. Emotion will run rampant in this book as secret after secret is revealed to Amy and Elder and both must try and handle the lies or watch the ship be torn apart.

I LOVED just how gritty this book felt. The adrenaline starts with the very first chapter and pumps through each page until the very end. With each revelation my mind was blown and a hundred more questions were raised, the most important one being, How the heck are they going to survive?! This book really read like a mystery and was full of hidden clues that were so expertly entertwined into the plot. As a result, Revis is the Queen of creating "Ahaa" moments!

I was also pleasantly surprised with how much I loved the characters. Amy has developed into a much stronger and confident MC in this book. Elder as well has made some amazing transformations, becoming the desirable male lead which I felt he lacked in Across the Universe. The romance has been amped up as well as Amy makes some important realizations about her own feelings. Overall, this book skyrocketed the series to the favorites list for me. Labeling it a page-turner does not do it justice, but A Million Suns will keep you hooked to the very end and leave you desperately wanting more of this story!


  1. A Million Suns is infinitely better than Across the Universe??? Oh my gosh, that first line makes me want to buy this book alone! I just adored ATU and I've been dying to get my hands on the sequel so it makes me extremely happy that you enjoyed it so much -- and especially that the characters grow into such better characters! :)

    Awesome review, Kristan! I am now officially ready to pick this book up!

  2. I definitely loved how much better developed Amy was in this book, and I agree that it's FAR better than ATU! (And I loved ATU, so that's saying something.)

    I know by page 14 my jaw hit the floor, and I'd barely picked it up before it dropped again.

    Thanks for the great review :)
