A Million Suns (Across the Universe #2) by Beth Revis

A Million Suns (Across the Universe, #2)
Blurb (from Goodreads):
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. Everywhere she looks, she sees the walls of the spaceship Godspeed.

But there may be hope: Elder has assumed leadership of the ship. He's finally free to act on his vision—no more Phydus, no more lies.

But when Elder learns shocking news about the ship, he and Amy race to discover the truth behind life on Godspeed. They must work together to unlock a mystery that was set in motion hundreds of years earlier. Their success—or failure—will determine the fate of the 2,298 passengers aboard Godspeed. But with each step, the journey becomes more perilous, the ship more chaotic, and the love between them more impossible to fight.

Beth Revis catapulted readers into the far reaches of space with her New York Times bestselling debut, Across the Universe. In A Million Suns, Beth deepens the mystery 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.

A Million Suns by Beth Revis

My rating: 3.75 of 5 stars

A Million Suns (Across the Universe, #2)(Source: I own a copy of this book.)
This is book 2 in the ‘across the universe’ series.
**Warning – some unavoidable spoilers for book 1 ‘across the universe’.**
With Elder stepping up as leader, and the workers off their Phydus, things are getting heated aboard Godspeed. Is there any way to get to Centuri-Earth though? Or will they really be stuck on Godspeed forever?

This was a good sequel, and I liked the surprises!

I liked both Amy and Elder in this book. I liked how Amy continued to try and work on a possible solution, even when things looked dire, and I liked how she didn’t let other people change her mind or her opinion.
I liked howElder stepped up and tried to take charge, even when things were going really, really wrong, and the people on the ship had little faith in him.

I liked the storyline in this book, and I liked how many twists and turns and surprises there were. I really didn’t see a lot of them coming, although some turned out to be awfully convenient!
There was a bit of romance in this one, but I liked the way that it developed, and it seemed quite natural, even when Amy tried to fight it!
There was some mention given to Newton’s laws of motion, which I thought a nice touch, although these did seem to get forgotten again as the book went on.
The ending to this was a big cliff-hanger, and book 3 could either go really well, or horribly bad. I’ll find out very soon though.
Overall; good second instalment.
7.5 out of 10.
