Review: A Million Suns

A Million Suns (Across the Universe, #2)A Million Suns
Beth Revis
Publisher: Razorbill
Release Date: January 10, 2012
Pages: 386

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.

Across the Universe was good, but it wasn't my favorite. I was hoping for better from A Million Suns, and I got it, though it still wasn't everything I hoped for.

It seems that A Million Suns had a lot of the same problems as Across the Universe. It was so slow. Fortunately, it was more entertaining throughout the book. I was always intrigued by the mystery and the story. But I felt that it didn't really pick up until the last hundred pages or so. But once it did pick up, it was very addicting. 

Elder is still my favorite out of the two main characters. I seemed to like Amy more in this book, but she was still bothersome at times. I was glad to see Elder stick up for himself more in this one. 

And the ending! Ah, man. After reading Across the Universe, I was intrigued enough to read the sequel but wasn't necessarily excited. But after finishing A Million Suns, I need the next one now. 

A Million Suns was overall more enjoyable than its prequel. I'm hoping for the best for the next and final book in this trilogy.
