Summary: Now that Eldest is dead, and the sixteen-year-old Elder has assumed the responsibility for everyone aboard the ship Godspeed, things are going to change. No more drugs keeping the ship's population mindless and easy to control, no more restricted information, and no more lies. But even though Elder's been training for leadership his entire life, he finds out that a ship full of people who can think for themselves are not always easy to lead... and a growing fraction of them are starting to foment rebellion. Meanwhile, Amy - who has only slowly started to adjust to life aboard Godspeed after being wakened from cryosleep - starts uncovering clues: clues that only she can decode, clues left for her by someone she's not sure she can trust, clues that will reveal the mysteries surrounding Godspeed... and clues that will eventually force Amy to determine the fate of the entire ship. Review: Holy cow, Beth Revis can pace a book like nobody's business. "Compulsively readable" doesn't even cover the half of it; this book was about as unputdownable as if it had been covered in superglue. Like Across the Universe, short chapters that alternate between Amy's and Elder's points of view kept things moving, and the action is practically non-stop. Even though I figured out a lot of the mysteries (who was leaving the clues, who was behind the sabotage, what's going on with the ship, etc.) long before the characters did, I could not. Stop. Reading. It's not the kind of fast reading that comes with action/thriller novels, either - there's plenty of action, for sure, but there's also a fair bit of reflection, and murky moral waters, etc., yet somehow they don't slow the pace of the book down at all. So, yeah, I enjoyed the heck out of this book, even though thinking about it critically, it's certainly got its flaws. As I mentioned, Revis is not particularly subtle when it comes to dropping hints in the book, and there are a few plot holes or inconsistencies or things that weren't explained very well. The world inside the Godspeed is cool, and well-built, but while I like Elder and Amy just fine, I don't love them they way I do protagonists in some other novels. But in the final analysis, none of that mattered at all; I was too busy devouring this book (and dying for the next one to come out) to mind. Whatever Revis's secret formula for readability is, it's pretty darn potent. 4 out of 5 stars. Recommendation: A Million Suns does not spent much time recapping the events of Across the Universe, so they really need to be read in order. But they're both hugely enjoyable, especially if fast-paced, dystopian-esque YA sci-fi is your thing.

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.

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.

It's hard to believe this was written by the same author as "Across the Universe." Not as interesting, very slow, had to force myself to finish it. So disappointed . . .

This is second book in...

This is second book in the Across the Universe series by Beth Revis. I really enjoyed Across the Universe and this book was even better than the first one. Revis just writes in such a way that the book is impossible to put down and you are constantly broadsided by secrets and surprises. It's been three months since Amy was unplugged. Elder has stopped the distribution of Phydus to the ship and is letting people think for themselves again. However, the unrest on the ship is growing...food production is declining and the survival of the whole ship is at stake. Then Elder uncovers some more astonishing secrets that will change the whole fate of the ship, Godspeed. This series has been so easy to read and so engaging, it is just impossible to put down. I love the way there are so many surprises and twists throughout the book, none of them seem contrived, and all of them have me gaping and thinking "OMG, no....REALLY!?" I felt like a little kid, constantly wide-eyed and surprised by each thing that happened! The characters continue to be very engaging. There are a lot of social issues going on here. One of the primary ones is how do you motivate people to work when they have no incentive and don't understand survival? When the Phydus is stopped you have a lot of people doing things that they don't want to do or that they aren't good at doing. It is pretty much chaos as society tries to reorganize itself. There is also the issue of law enforcement and how to set up laws and the structure to enforce them without turning society into a dictatorship. It's interesting to watch an absolutely ignorant society of people struggle through this. I liked that both Amy and Elder (especially Elder) made a lot of mistakes. Elder is an idealist and has a lot of trouble understanding how people can be evil and not help each other. You see his ignorance a lot as he struggles to figure out how to rule this new society. He has a lot of growing to do as a leader and you do see him make some good progress in this book. You also see Amy's ugly side here too; she makes some very selfish and blind decisions. The book stops in an excellent spot and I am super curious to see what happens next. Overall I loved this science fiction dystopian thriller. It is an incredibly engaging story that is hard to put down. I thought the society and how it crumbled was fascinating. I love the characters and enjoy their flaws just as much as their strengths. This is such an engaging read I highly recommend it to all young adult science fiction fans. This is one of the best YA sci-fi series I have read.

Okay. What a sequel. I...

Okay. What a sequel. I'm so excited for the third book. Beth Revis is really amazing. I actually thought that they're not going to make it to Centauri-Earth but what the? They're already there! :OI'm so shocked and I know that I need to be patient for the third book. Thumbs up.

So Close, Yet So Far A...

So Close, Yet So Far Away -4.5 stars...A Million Suns is the follow up to Revis&#039; first book, Across the Universe. Godspeed has a new leader, Elder. With the help of clues left behind by Orion, Amy and Elder are working to unravel all the secrets and lies the previous leader, Eldest, has tried hiding for so long. The ship is in chaos though because the residents have lived so long being mind-controlled that, that&#039;s all they really know. A lot of the residents want to keep the old ways and live on the ship forever, others however, including Amy, who has seen what real stars, grass and the sun is like and knows that there&#039;s more to life outside the walls of Godspeed, want off the ship. Someone else though, has different plans and is working against Elder and Amy, using any means necessary, to try and stop them from reaching Centauri-Earth.&nbsp;&nbsp;I really liked the way this story was laid out like a scavenger hunt, with Amy and Elder having to solve one clue to the next to learn the big secrets behind Godspeed. It was like one big adventure and a lot of fun trying to solve the puzzles. I actually enjoyed this book more then the first because it just wasn&#039;t as frexing weird. Their word not mine. : ) &nbsp;
