Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The sf trilogy begun with Across the Universe (2011) and A Million Suns (2012) comes to a fittingly explosive conclusion in this satisfying series ender. From the first page, Revis fulfills the promise of the first volume: 1,456 passengers of the spaceship Godspeed finally land on Centauri-Earth, the military personnel are unfrozen from suspended animation, and everyone gets an up-close look at their brave new world. And it’s not good. Right away, Revis’ trademark claustrophobic suspense gives way to creature-feature thrills as pterodactyl-like monsters assault the pioneers. Amid the growing body count, the terror of the ship-born people, and the threat of unseen aliens, young lovers Amy and Elder have only each other to cling to—but that’s before the introduction of Amy’s new blue-eyed bodyguard. Plot holes pop up occasionally, and explanations are sometimes glossed over, but that doesn’t take away from Revis’ gifts as a propulsive storyteller with a knack for jarring surprises and raising the stakes. Pair with Dom Testa’s Galahad series for a one-two punch of impressive modern YA sci-fi. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Revis’ trilogy has rightfully lit up best-seller lists, and a major promotional campaign, including two Comic-Cons, should keep attention amped. Grades 9-12. --Daniel Kraus --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
