Rating: 5 Seriously Outstanding Stars!
Godspeed was fueled by lies. Now it is ruled by chaos.
It's been three months since Amy was unplugged. The life she always knew is over. And everywhere she looks, she sees the walls of the spaceship Godspeed. But there may just be hope: Elder has assumed leadership of the ship. He's finally free to enact his vision - no more Phydus, no more lies.
But when Elder discovers shocking news about the ship, he and Amy race to discover the truth behind life on Godspeed. They must work together to unlock a puzzle that was set in motion hundreds of years earlier, unable to fight the romance that's growing between them and the chaos that threatens to tear them apart.
In book two of the Across the Universe trilogy, New York Times bestselling author Beth Revis mesmerizes us again with a brilliantly crafted mystery filled with action, suspense, romance, and deep philosophical questions. And this time it all builds to one mind-bending conclusion: They have to get off this ship.~Goodreads
THIS REVIEW IS SEMI-SPOILERY IF YOU HAVEN’T READ ACROSS THE UNIVERSE!


A Million Suns is a MILLION times BETTER than Across the Universe! And that's saying a lot because AtU was pretty damn amazing! Beth Revis upped the suspense, doubled the danger and created a sense of urgency that made this book intense! It was simply phenomenal. 

A Million Suns picks up where Across the Universe left off, leaving Elder in charge to run the ship. And he’s trying so hard to be the leader that Godspeed needs but between trying to prevent riots, trying to protect Amy and trying to pinpoint another murderer, he’s got his hands a little full. And on top of all of that, with the population off of Phydus, Godspeed goes into complete and utter chaos. People aren't working, they're boycotting the Eldest system and they're getting violent. I felt really bad for Elder, he was so completely overwhelmed and frustrated. All i wanted to do was get him pantsless and give him a nice relaxing massage.(WHAT!? Amy saw him in his undies too!) Anyway, I personally thought he was doing a good job! (buuut maybe i'm not a fair judge because I absolutely love him!)  

In the mean time, Amy’s given clues and messages that are meant to steer her towards Godspeed’s biggest secret. And if I haven’t mentioned this before, I’ll say it now, Amy is smart as FREX! The only way to explain how she figures everything out is that she’s basically a genius. And dudes! We also find out that Amy's BAD. ASS. She threatens Luthor like nobody’s business. I was thoroughly impressed with her intimidation skills. Like damn. (Speaking of Luthor, he is a frexing creep! I’m glad someone stuck him up with 3 Phydus patches. Just sayin’.)

*Sighs* Amy and Elder’s relationship is the sweetest little romance ever. It just has this innocence to it, I don’t even know how to explain it. It’s just super frexing adorable! And OMG! That kiss by the pond?! *swoons*

As for the ending!? HOLY SHITE! The ship is going to land!?! AHHH!! Shades of Earth canNOT get here fast enough! A Million Suns was frexing brilly and you’d have to be completely loons not to love it! Go pick it up NOW! 

P dot s- I missed Harley...HARD! and I fell in love with this quote in which Amy talks about him:


“I get lost in the image—there’s Harley’s face, and the stars, and the tiny koi fish swimming around his ankle. There are all the memories. How can someone I knew for so short a time have left such an incredible print on my soul? Seeing him look this way, so happy and free, makes me remember that something about Harley, that spark, that joy, that something that makes me wish he was still here, now.” ♥♥♥

    1. The kiss is PERFECTION! It's just...it's...everything. <--SOO cheesy but SO true! Their relationship becomes so much stronger in this book and Amy admits...something. But at the end Elder makes a decision that Amy doesn't agree with and that leaves them.......at odds. SO. That's all i will say and YOU will just have to get back to me with your thoughts once you read it!! <3
