Amy and Elder are once again faced with startling secrets and lies that have been hidden for generations. The two young adults are forced to make more difficult decisions, affecting the entire population. Revis' sophomore novel is just as incredibly vivid and intense as before. This is the second in her science fiction trilogy, that may just be more suspenseful that the last. The author is amazingly talented at taking the reader through the same range of emotions as her characters, from panic-laden claustrophobia in the first novel to a fear of chaos and mutiny in this sequel.
Both teen and adult science fiction fans will enjoy this extraordinary coming-of-age story. Filled with intense suspense, adventure, mystery, and a bit of romance - A Million Suns is pure excitement from beginning to its cliffhanger ending. This fantastic space opera trilogy is a must-read.
For whatever reason though, I could not get into "A Million Suns". I thought there were definitely good parts: I liked the mystery of trying to find out what the Elders were hiding, and I liked the increasing mystery about the frozens and what their hidden agenda might be. However, I didn't particularly find the tension between the Elder and Amy and Luther particularly realistic, or reasonable, and gads, I thought the pacing was slow in the middle. In addition, I found that there were some outcomes that were predictable.
Overall, I'm glad I read this book and I'm really curious about what lays in the future, but this was a slumpy middle book for me.
A Million Suns picks up where Across the Universe dropped off, but this time, things have reached critical mass. It's now been three months since Amy was unplugged from her hypersleep.Things seem to be okay since Elder assumed power on the ship, but Amy and Elder soon discover that things are more complicated than they seem, and they must put their heads together to get the Godspeed safely to its destination.
Everything that I enjoyed about Across the Universe continues in Million Suns, complete with more excellent action, mesmerizing action, suspense and complex plotting. Though some of the danger of the original book has passed, there's still plenty going on here to keep readers enthralled. Author Beth Revis' style also continues to shine with every word, and her storytelling continues to keep me spellbound. Can't wait for the next one in this series.
After learning about the problems with the ship and the decades of lies that have been passed around, Elder is determined to fin out just how far off course the ship has been blown from finding their new planet. He isn't prepared to learn the ship actually hasn't moved for years. Now that he has removed the sedative from the ship's system, all the citizens of Godspeed are less like zombies, able to think for themselves, and ready to stage a mutiny. Elder wasn't ready to take the leader's position in the first place, but he certainly wasn't ready to be tested so quickly. Now he must find a way to keep the ship together and still find the planet they were supposed to reach decades ago.
Amy knows she may never see her parents again since she was unfrozen and they must stay frozen until the ship lands. She barely survived Orion's crazed attacks, but with him safely frozen, she doesn't have to worry about him anymore...Read more ›
