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.
Holy freakin' buckets! Talk about never-ending action and suspense! So much happened, I don't even think I can organize my thoughts and feelings into anything remotely intelligent. Well, maybe I can... yeah, that's not going to happen. Instead of a coherent review, I have decided to take the opportunity to christen my Lightning Reviews with a quick little review of A Million Suns.
So what was my reaction after reading this book? Well, kind of like this: "Oh my word! I can't believe that... and Elder was so... and Amy is... and I was completely STUNNED by... and I KNEW that was... and can you believe... and what the heck is... and... oh my word, READ IT NOW!" So there you have it. The review may not make sense, but I absolutely adored this novel. I loved the character development, the non-stop action, the blow-your-mind twists and turns. I loved everything about it. Beth Revis has really outdone herself with this one and I can't wait to see where she takes us in Shades of Earth. So as I said before, go out and read this book now. It is absolutely spectacular!
