About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
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.
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 ›
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.
I had this book on my shelf for almost a year. That's just ridiculous. But I'm kind of glad I waited because now I can dive straight into the next one to see what happens next cause I gotta say, I'm dying of curiosity!
This is a series that really gets me emotionally involved. I can imagine this happening, people put into space to land on a far off planet generations later. I also can see the affect it would have on people. There are good and bad on earth, of course it's going to be the same in space on a ship with thousands of people. But the damage one person can do can be life or death for everyone.
This book is filled with clues about something that Elder and Amy need to discover. As they are on this quest to figure out this big secret someone is sabotaging things and people are going crazy. Elder has a lot to deal with and Amy is just determined to find a solution to things, to figure out how to get them out of there. I was completely immersed in this book as I read and got frustrated when I was interrupted. I had no idea what was going on, what the big secret was and how things would go. I also was emotionally involved because we have people freaking out and Elder has to deal with so much. I kept thinking of what he should be doing, to get these people to listen to him and stop being so frexing STUPID! This was all good though, I love when I get that involved.
This book was really easy for me to read and I was totally involved and entertained but I can't say it's a favorite. I don't love the characters, I like them fine, but they don't really WOW me. But because the whole thing with the plot and the world is SO great it's not really a huge issue.Read more ›
