A Million Suns (Across the Universe #2) by Beth Revis

Book Summery (Via author's website): 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.

Book Review:
After reading Across the Universe (my review), I've been dying to read the sequel A Million Suns. First of all, let me just say that I was not disappointed. :D I was happy to see Elder and Amy's relationship deepen. I felt like that was a piece that was missing in the first book. Also, I was happy to discover more about Godspeed's journey through space. I also enjoyed Amy's "scavenger hunt." That's about as detailed as I can get without giving too much away. :P Of course, chaos erupts and adventures ensue. Some of the big plot "twists" were rather predictable. Overall, this is just a fabulous series. I highly encourage readers of all ages to read it. In fact, I bought my nephew a copy of Across the Universe for Christmas! :)

Favorite Quote:
“And here we are, in the middle, surrounded by a sea of stars.
A million suns.
Any of them could hold a planet. Any of them could hold a home.
But all of them are out of reach." (p. 218) 

Cover Art Commentary:
These colors are right up my ally! I am REALLY happy that they kept the cover with in the same theme as the last book. Lately, it seems after the first or second book, the covers of series are changed. I'm really glad they didn't change this series! :)



  1. I loved the this book too and the hunt for clues :)

  2. I still need to read this but good to know that it doesn't disappoint.

  3. Ah!! So excited for this one. I loved the first.

  4. Julie
    The scavenger hunt was one of my favorite elements! :)

    I'm looking forward to your thoughts.

    It's really good! :)

    I meant every word! :)

  5. I haven't read Across the Universe yet, and it sounds like I'm missing out on a great series.

  6. Just finished it the other day and I loved it too. (maybe not as much as the first one, but it is still an amazing book). Can't wait for the next one ;))

    Happy midnight reading!
