5.0 out of 5 stars Don't judge a book by its cover 2 Feb. 2014
Format:Paperback
So, for those of you who aren’t familiar with the Across The Universe series, the books follow the story of 17-year-old Amy, who was frozen and sent away from Earth in a spaceship destined to land on a new planet in 300 years. However, Amy finds herself awake and unfrozen long before she’s due to be, and is forced to live on Godspeed, a spaceship full of people that were born there and never knew what life on Earth was like.

Across The Universe captivated me completely, and A Million Suns, the second book in the series, was no different.

One of my favourite things about A Million Suns is the characters. They’re brilliantly developed and believable, but also flawed, which for me is the key to a truly likeable and relatable character. Nobody in real life is perfect, after all.

It was interesting that one of the pivotal characters in A Million Suns, Orion, was frozen for the entire duration of the novel. I don’t want to give too much away, but Amy doesn’t like Orion very much. So when he starts leaving her clues that aim to reveal secrets about the ships, she’s in two minds about whether to follow them. Orion is an interesting character because you really don’t know his true motives, but I have a feeling that we’ll get to know him better in the third book in the series – Shades Of Earth.

Amy does uncover many secrets about the ship, and honestly, I didn’t see any of them coming. A Million Suns keeps you guessing from start to finish.

Beth Revis isn’t afraid of writing about subjects such as death, suicide, drugs, sex and rape, which, while some younger readers may find uncomfortable, I thought helped the revolution that takes place in A Million Suns more realistic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Trapped in space 24 May 2012
Format:Paperback
Amy is trapped upon the Godspeed, woken from her cryogenic sleep decades early and her only friend is Elder. Elder is now leader of the ship but rebellion threatens as he struggles to take charge. Torn between her feelings for him and the chaos beginning to pull the ship apart, Amy stumbles across the first in a series of clues to a deeper mystery. Godspeed has more secrets to reveal...but will Amy survive learning them?

This is the second book in the Across the Universe trilogy (after Across the Universe) which I adored, devoured in a single day and then grabbed a copy of this the next morning. After all of the mysteries solved and secrets revealed in the first book, I didn't think there could be much more to come. I was wrong. Really really wrong. This is full of even more twists and turns and hidden secrets than the first book.

I was glued to the page throughout as the action unfolded, from the opening scenes of Elder meeting with the shippers (who control the ship) and Amy talking to her still-frozen parents to the shocking revelations and dramatic choices of the ending. This book is so well written, so detailed, so deviously twisted I couldn't put it down.

Amy and Elder have both grown and matured over the three months since her awakening. Their developing feelings for each other are somewhat pushed into the background as they struggle with their new roles and responsibilities. For Elder the change is the most dramatic. He is now leader of the Godspeed but he is finding it hard to step into Eldest's shoes and it turns out that there was much he hadn't learnt.

By Kate TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
When I finished the first of the novels in Beth Revis' Young Adult science fiction trilogy, Across the Universe, I was fortunate. I was able to pick up the sequel A Millions Suns immediately. Rather less fortunately, having finished A Million Suns I now have to wait for 2013 for the conclusion to this fine series. As is always the case with sequels - especially trilogy middle books - they are difficult to review without peeks into the contents of the preceding novel. I'll try and keep them to a minimum but spoilers are inevitable and you would be doing yourself a big favour by reading Across the Universe first.

Elder and Amy are aboard the city-sized space ship Godspeed, heading for a new home, Centauri-Earth. Amy was among the frozen cargo of personnel required to make the planet habitable, but she was a piece of non-essential luggage brought along with her far more vital parents. She was awoken from her cold sleep centuries after she left earth but too early. While Amy, now parentless, has to deal with life aboard the Godspeed, divided into different worlds for its feeders, keepers, shippers, Elder has to adapt to his new role as Eldest, the leader of the ship. Having deprived the crew and citizens of their sedatives, he now has to cope with their increasing awareness, individuality and violence.

But, just as the first novel contained a mystery, so too does A Million Suns. Orion, the Recorder, has left a series of clues leading to the reality of the ship's position and the crew's plight. The mystery of what lies outside the ships is paralleled by the rising fever within it.

3.0 out of 5 stars A little long winded but ok
This book was ok, a little bit long winded in points, but I think it's the filler between book 1 and 3, interested to see how it ends though.

Not one to say I would miss a days work over,

I always worry about second books because they tend to fall into the trap of setting up for the final installment rather than being any good themselves. Read more
