A Million Suns Review

386 pages
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.

Review:
If you thought that Across the Universe was good wait until you read A Million Suns! As the second book in the series this noel does not disappoint. Once again we're thrown into Elder and Amy's story of life aboard the spaceship Godspeed. There are new mysteries to be solved and a lot more problems now that everyone is off of Phydus. There were a lot of twists in this novel and an ending that was surprising. I did feel myself frustrated with Amy sometimes in the novel because I felt like when she should have actively been trying to figure things out she was instead just wasting time doing nothing. I was also frustrated that Elder and Amy wouldn't unplug any of the frozen people on board when they could have had more experience and answers than anyone else. Other than that this book is nonstop action and excitement. I can't wait to read the next novel in the series even though it won't be out apparently until next year. I definitely recommend this to those who like young adult sci-fi novels.
