Goodreads Synopsis:
Godspeed was once fueled by lies. Now it is ruled by chaos. It’s been three months. In that time, Amy has learned to hide who she is. Elder is trying to be the leader he’s always wanted to be. But as the ship gets more and more out of control, only one thing is certain: They have to get off the ship.

My Thoughts:
A Million Suns was just as enticing and emotionally gripping as Across The Universe. As Amy and Elder continue on their journey, they soon discover that even after everything they thought was true, it turns out that there are even more secrets that are awaiting to be uncovered on Godspeed.

As Elder comes into his role as Leader on the ship, it turns out that ruling the ship is harder than he thought it would be. With the ship being divided and a mutiny on Elder's hands and with the residents of Godspeed being murdered, Elder is put to the biggest test of his life.

Amy thought that it was bad enough that she was the only resident from Earth aboard the ship but after Eldest and Orions betryal she is left with even more questions. Even after being frozen, Orion is still haunting Amy's thoughts. When she finds that Orion has left her clue's to Godspeeds greatest secret, Amy will stop at othing to find the answers. But after all her searching is she really ready to find out the truth?

A Million Suns was an amazing read. This is a real page-turner. Beth leaves us with a lot of answers but also so many more questions. This is such a great sci-fi series and I am so excited to have been able to read it. If you loved ATU then you will not be disappointed with A Million Suns.

  1. This is such a great review! I loved both Across the Universe and A Million Suns, and I can barely wait for Shades of Earth!
    I loved the goose chase that Orion left for Amy. I especially love how pieces of classic literature were incorporated.
    I'm glad to see that you liked it!
