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.
5 out of 5 gnomes
So much awesomeness in this book. The secrets revealed in this book are crazy and lead all the characters in quite interesting directions. In the very first chapter you learn that a very important truth is really a lie. That turns out to be only the first truth that's not exactly true.
Complications of the personal and social variety abound throughout the ship. Elder is now in charge and it seems that rebellion is in the air but also a hint of anarchy. It's very hard to know who exactly to trust because with everyone being essentially wide awake now instead of dulled, this really reveals more of the problems with this society. Every person on the ship except Amy may look homogeneous but there are a lot of class differences that boil to the surface. Elder's leadership is questioned and at first he's not sure how to answer the challenge.
Once again the dual perspective of having the chapters switch off between Elder and Amy is very well done and adds greatly to the tension. It is great how organically their relationship is growing. Slowly but surely they seem to be growing closer. There's no insta-love here and there are still questions on both sides of how exactly this relationship could even work. I will let you know that one of the most interesting scenes in this book between the two takes place when Elder's not wearing pants.
This story will have you wondering if the characters are doing the right thing. There are some characters with questionable motives and some that I'm thinking maybe the main characters should have trusted. It also brought some major regrets again when thinking of what Harley did and why, it may have made sense in his mind at the time but so much happens that he would have wanted to be a part of. There are just so many questions and so many different motives on the ship from those just trying to stay alive and those trying to make a power grab.
The ending, wow, some lines are definitely drawn in the sand here. There are some hard separations and the future has never been so hopeful yet uncertain. I have a feeling that there will be massive changes in the next book and that Amy's people the frozens may have a much larger part to play. I'm really looking forward to the conclusion of this series because it looks like it's shaping up to be a heck of a finale.
Lots is happening in this book. One of Elders childhood friends is trying to start a rebellion, Elder learns more about the ship, Amy learns more about the secrets of the ship as well by following Orion's clues that he left for her as a contingency plan in case something happened to him, and someone is murdering the people of Godspeed and blaming Elder for it.
There is a great plot, tons are happening, lots is told about the ship in this book. Amy and Elder relationship blossoms even though Amy found out it was Elder who unfroze her instead of Orion. There is a little more romance, in this book, and a lot more suspense. All and all just a great page turner.
At the end of the book, it leaves you in spot where you are hanging but you feel okay with it. I want to know what happens next, but I think it is a great spot to leave you hanging before the next book comes out. I can't wait to see what they encounter next in this series!
