Editorial Reviews

Review

"Revis has penned a fast-paced, action-packed follow-up with her dystopian, sci-fi thriller, "A Million Suns," that explores not only the nature of authority and loyalty but fear of the unknown and fulfilling one's personal destiny."  -LA Times

PRAISE FOR A MILLION SUNS:

"A fast-paced, action-packed follow-up . . . that explores not only the nature of authority and loyalty but fear of the unknown and fulfilling one's personal destiny. --LA Times

"Setting and plot are the heart and soul of this ripping space thriller, and they're unforgettable." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Revis just might make straight-up sci-fi cool again." --Booklist

PRAISE FOR THE ACROSS THE UNIVERSE TRILOGY:

"Entirely original, deeply compelling, and totally unputdownable--I've found a new favorite!" —Carrie Ryan, New York Times bestselling author of The Forest of Hands and Teeth "A murder mystery, a budding romance, and a dystopian world gracefully integrated into a sci-fi novel that blows away all expectation." —Melissa Marr, New York Times bestselling author of Wicked Lovely "A horrifying and deliciously claustrophobic masterpiece that's part sci-fi, part dystopian, and entirely brilliant." —Kiersten White, New York Times bestselling author of Paranormalcy and Supernaturally

About the Author

Beth Revis lives in rural North Carolina with her husband and dog, and believes space is nowhere near the final frontier. Across the Universe is her first novel.

More About the Author

Beth Revis grew up in western North Carolina reading CS Lewis and Madeleine L'Engle. Her debut novel, a sci fi novel for teens who don't like sci fi, is ACROSS THE UNIVERSE (Penguin). The first of a trilogy, it tells the story of a girl born of Earth but cryogenically frozen for a centuries-long trip across the universe and the boy born on the ship who she meets when she's woken up fifty years too early. The sequel, A MILLION SUNS, will be published in January 2012, followed by the third in the trilogy in 2013.

Format: Hardcover
Elder is now in charge of the Godspeed, following the death of Eldest. He is determined to be different in his leadership style, no more lies and no more drugging his people. But rebellions begin rising up, laziness threatens food production, and there's another murderer onboard. Meanwhile, Amy stumbles across a thread of clues left behind by Orion, explaining his extreme actions and revealing another shocking secret that will affect the entire ship.

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.

Format: Hardcover
Across the Universe was one of my favorite books of 2011. Call me a huge nerd, but I was in love with the twisty plot filled with lies, deception, manipulation and all kinds of other juicy things -not the mention the incredibly well drawn science fiction background, that took the novel into a different place than much of what's out there in the YA genre right now.

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.

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By PeaTee TOP 500 REVIEWER on January 21, 2012
Format: Hardcover
Across the Universe was one of my favorite reads from last year. It had mystery and a love story with a scifi background -- what's not to like. It was lots of fun.

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.

Format: Paperback
I'm so disgusted by this book right now that I can't think, see, or hear straight. I also have this massive headache caused by my stubbornness in finish reading something I was hating so freaking much, but alas, I did it.

In a nutshell, the reason why I hated this book while having enjoyed the first one a lot can be explained by this quote:

"Haven't you figured out that half my problems are because of you? If I didn't have to watch out for the freak, maybe I could get something done!" ~Elder to Amy

Wasn't that just lovely?

The best part comes afterwards when Amy pretty much stays mad for like 2 minutes, dismisses the subject entirely, and actually starts falling in love with Elder. Excuse me while I barf. Beth Revis, are you a dude in disguise? Because I cannot believe a woman would handle the situation like this. I mean, AMY JUST FORGETS/IGNORES THE FACT THAT ELDER CALLED HER A FREAK THAT'S IN HIS WAY.

ARE.
YOU.
*******.
KIDDING.
ME.

I'm sorry but this^ is not okay. The stress he was under isn't an excuse, his sixteen years aren't an excuse---nothing is an excuse for his words and behavior, and I am APPALLED, HORRIFIED, SICKENED by Amy's lack of response. Girls not standing up for themselves after being insulted is not okay. Girls falling for the guys who did it is even worse.

After that I just stopped caring about the characters. My hatred for Elder kept growing with each new chapter, and Amy, well, if she doesn't respect herself, how can I respect her?

The rest of the story didn't help my case, it was painful to watch it unfold actually, I mean, all those nonsensical plotlines... like, why did Orion left those puzzles for Amy? Why couldn't he just TELL her what was going on?
