Customer Reviews of A Million Suns: An Across The Universe Novel


Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! Elder is now the ?Eldest? and is command of the ship. He finds that the engineers are hiding a secret from him and when he finds out the truth, it could change the way people would see him as a leader. Ruling the ship without the drug makes all the people susceptible to chaos. I really enjoyed the way Beth Revis tells her story. Having two viewpoints makes the story so much more interesting and you can?t help but like the characters more when you can understand their decisions. One thing I didn?t understand was how Amy could forgive Elder for unplugging her in the first place. I felt it was out of character only because she gets mad at him often and to not get angry at him for doing that didn?t make any sense. This book is action-packed and full of drama that I couldn?t put it down! Who knew science fiction had so much action?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than the first book! A Great Read! Last year I picked up Across the Universe and really loved it and I'd been waiting to finally read the second book A Million Suns for ages before I read it a couple weeks ago. This book picked up 3 months or so after the the ending of Across the Universe which is just where it needed to start off. I thought it was great to get back into the world on the ship Godspeed because to be honest I've really missed the author's writing. Since the first book left off, Amy is trying to adjust to life as she now knows it. She is so different from those on the ship with her and her only ally is Elder, the teenage leader of the ship who took power in the first book. In this book there was a lot more suspense in it than the first one and it was drawn out through the entire novel and I loved that about it. Often in YA fiction the authors do not carry out suspense very well and it ends far too soon and is altogether anti climatic. However, Revis in my opinion did an outstanding job of creating a suspenseful plot. I think that while I enjoyed the first book a lot that the author really did hit her stride with this one. The plot was a lot stronger and better paced than that of the first novel and a lot of the questions I had while I was reading Across the Universe and ones I had after I finished reading it were answered in A Million Suns. However, now I have a whole bunch of questions that I hope the third book will finally answer for me. This book had a lot more violence, intrigue and romance than the first book because now Elder is the leader of the people on Godspeed and the relationship between Amy and he seems to go up and down like a bloody roller coaster. One moment their getting closer and the next events on the ship are tearing them apart turning the book into a bit of an angsty read but I enjoyed that part of it. I'm not a huge fan of "perfect" love stories where everyone gets along and everything is grand and wonderful. The emotions of the book were very real which I think is extremely important. A huge mystery was solved in this book and one would think that that would solve the problems Amy and Elder are facing on the rapidly deteriorating ship Godspeed a whole other can of worms is inevitably opened and it will be very interesting to see where the book goes from here. The only big problem I had with the book was how Elder treated Amy sometimes. It is his fault that she was brought out of cryo-stasis because he thought she was beautiful but in this book he seems to blame her a lot for the discord their relationship causes amongst the people of Godspeed who believe Amy is a freak and he goes so far as to call her one as well. In my opinion he has absolutely no right to be like that with her and if it were me in Amy's place I would have decked him long ago. Instead, I found Amy to be a little to deferential to Elder it was as though the pain he caused her was alright just because he had a lot of responsibility. I felt that Amy had lost a wee bit of the fiery personality that she had in the first book and I hope that she regains that strength in the next book. Overall, I really enjoyed finally reading the second book in this series and I would highly recommend this series to all those who enjoy sci-fi ya romances that aren't too....science fiction-y. If that makes sense. Even if you aren't a fan of the sci-fi genre this series is a great read and if you've read the first one and haven't read A Million Suns yet I highly advise doing so soon. I can't wait to see where the next book leads and I'm glad that book three will be released in January.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Horrifyingly Shocking & Deliciously Teasing Page-Turner! Where Across the Universe was fuelled by lies and Elder's search to reveal the truth, A Million Suns leaks out truth, after truth, after truth in a horrifyingly shocking and deliciously teasing page-turning way! Infused with the same mystery and suspense we saw in Across the Universe, in A Million Suns Amy and Elder work to uncover clues that will determine the fate of all of those on Godspeed. The stakes become much higher and the twists and turns keep you guessing until the last page! It's been three months since Elder assumed leadership, and things are starting to crumble at his feet. No longer under the influence of Phydus - the drug Eldest used to control people into subservience - the people aboard Godspeed have woken up - and they're not all happy. Labor strikes, resource shortages and the whispers of revolution have created a chaotic environment, filled with violence and death. I enjoyed watching Elder try to exercise his authority, but I wasn't surprised when the people he was trying to lead revolted. His fault was in doubting himself, and many of those looking to rebel exploited that weakness. He spent much of his time running from one problem to the next, leaving behind a wake of death and destruction. I wish he could have tapped into the potential he has to be a great leader, but instead it felt like he thought the best course of action was to yell louder then everyone else. He spent a lot of time defending his actions and his involvement with Amy, instead of working with those rebelling against him towards a solution that everyone could live with. He claimed he wanted to rule differently then Eldest, but in many of his moments of doubt, he found himself wishing he was more like Eldest as people listened to him. I wish I could say that he learned from his mistakes, but as in Across the Universe, Elder showed his age in many situations, jumping in headfirst before thinking through the consequences. But, through it all Elder managed to stick true to what he believes in and the moments where he was able to take charge without hesitation, though far and few between, were powerful. Towards the end, Elder was able to redeem himself as a leader and gain my respect. I love that he gave the inhabitants of Godspeed a choice, even though he had Amy arguing against it every step of the way. Amy however, I grew to dislike. There were moments where she truly shined, where she claimed her independence and stood up to those who would see her cower in their presence, but those rare moments were not enough to make up for her selfishness. Having been left clues by Orion, which promised to explain his reasons for unplugging the frozens, Amy sets out to uncover his secrets. In the midst of everything Elder is dealing with, Amy is constantly asking him for his help in deciphering the next clue. This would be fine, except every time Elder has to run off to handle a crisis, Amy makes him feel guilty for abandoning her, or she lashes out at him over something seemingly insignificant, or she pushes his buttons until he says something in anger, and then she runs away. I think Amy spends half of this book running away, and it really started to get on my nerves. I did like how she persevered, and stubbornly continued to look for clues when Elder said it was a waste of time, and that she figured out almost everything on her own. But her reaction at the end of the book (no spoilers, I'll just mention that it has to do with Orion) had me wanting to slap her. Her behaviour at the end had me questioning why Elder would want to pursue a relationship with her, because she was reacting like a childish brat. Putting aside my issues with Amy, I loved A Million Suns. I loved that Revis managed to make Orion such a strong presence when he was frozen for the entire book. My opinion of him kept changing with each clue, until I wasn't sure what I thought of him anymore. I loved the slight fear that came with reading from Amy's PoV as it felt like every person she passed was about to attack her. I also liked watching her adapt to her new surroundings, refusing to remain locked up in her room where it was safe, in order to uncover the truth. Some may see her actions as foolish, but I thought she was brave to face people who hated her on a daily basis, and not spend all of her free time in self-pity. I loved the plot twists that had my head-spinning from start to finish. The shocking truth that Amy and Elder stumble open had me reading open-mouthed as I started to understand the ramifications of such a discovery - it also left me with so many questions! - all of which were thankfully answered later. From start to finish Revis had me hooked. It didn't matter that I was growing to dislike Amy, or that I disagreed with many of Elder's reactions - I couldn't put this book down until I had discovered the haunting secret that had been frozen with Orion and what it would mean for those still living on Godspeed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Absolutely loved it! waiting for book 3! I loved the first one and this one was just as good. The plot carries where it left off from Across the Universe (it’s strongly recommended you read it before jumping into A Million Suns). The plot was really good and there was another mystery Amy had to solve. I loved the little clues dropped in throughout the book and Amy was just picking them up like breadcrumbs. What I loved about the book was just when you were getting comfortable and watching Amy pick up the pieces to put the puzzle together, you’re blindsided with events. These aren’t just any sort of events this is more like mind blowing What in the World OMG events where you either pull your hair or you just wanted to do a huge face palm moment (readers of this book will know what I’m talking about). It not only stops there. These blindsiding moments really pack it in towards the end of the book which makes it so exciting and enjoyable to read. I absolutely loved her writing style in this plot. Another aspect of the plot that I really liked was the chaos Godspeed was under. It’s like watching cabin fever explode onto the ship. Character wise, I’m enjoying how they’re developing. Elder’s really taking the reigns of the ship and I liked his development. He’s growing up (that dear dear boy. *wipes tears* haha) and it’s nice to see he’s finally taking charge and getting what he’s been trained for all this time. Ending is left in a cliffhanger and I’m ready to jump into the third one (can it be released NOW? please?) lots of questions asked! and hopefully they’re be answered soon! it’s a great series so far, most definitely recommended for YA readers (sci fi geeks most welcome!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 'Frex' OMFG. Just as good as the first one! There were alot more secrets and moments where you just thought to yourself; 'That did not just happen' or 'I did not see that coming!' In this book you see more of who the characters really are. They start to express themselves more thoughout this book. The plot was just as striking as the first one but with more twists and turns. More mystery and striking events! Do not be fooled by the back of the book. It may sound boring but if you liked the first one you have to give this one a try too. Its totally worth it. I found this one tootaly 5 star. "An unforhettable opening scene...launches this riveting thriller about space travel, secrets, murder and realpolitik" ~Kirkus Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great continuation of the series! This series just keeps getting better and better. I remember reading Across the Universe, thinking how unique the novel was, taking place in a spacecraft on the way to living on another planet. I loved how it ended with Elder being the next leader and ultimately taking all of Godspeed’s passengers off the one thing that was keeping them in line. Obviously, the next book in the series would deal with one thing: Chaos. A Million Suns starts off exactly where Across the Universe ended, with Elder learning that he was lied to. I loved being on Godspeed even more than I did in Across the Universe. If things felt claustrophobic in the first book, they’re even more so in this one! As a reader, you have to know what would happen once the Phydus was removed from the water, but you can only hope that things wouldn’t be that bad. Well, they are. That bad. In the first book, we learn about the people of Godspeed and how they each have a job and are each bred to do that job. They’re not educated, they don’t know right from wrong — they just do. So, naturally, once they’re off the Phydus and can start thinking for themselves, bad things happen. Amy and Elder were great characters in this book. I loved Amy’s search for the truth and how Elder embraced being a leader, even though he was thrust into the position at such a young age. Naturally, not everything could go right, even though he had been training for this position all his life. I did miss Harley, who was in the first book, and felt like he could’ve been a great addition to the cast of characters in A Million Suns, but Revis definitely makes do with all of the other characters in the book. And the plot twist! Holy man, I was not expecting that. Of course, it’s a twist so I can’t say anything about it, but it was good. And it threw a big wrench into the story that I was left wondering what the heck is going to happen in the next book. This was an amazing instalment to the series and I cannot wait to read the next one. Beth Revis truly is an original and she makes me want to read more sci-fi books.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely riveting! Better than the first in the series!! I received this audiobook for review from the publisher. I did not receive any compensation for my review, and the views expressed herein are my own. When I reviewed Across the Universe, I said that I thought that it was a solid series opener even though it didn't knock my socks off. Apparently, Revis was just getting warmed up because A Million Suns totally rocked!! The second in the series picks up 98 days from when Amy was awakened from the cryo chamber. Orion, the ship's previous Elder, sends Amy on somewhat of a scavenger hunt to search for clues to discover the secrets that Eldest was trying to hide. Although he tried to do the right and noble thing, it appears that ruling without Phydus may be clearly more difficult than he envisioned. The inhabitants awaken from their drugged-up stupor and some residents cause dissension. Total chaos abounds: People stop working, the food supply becomes low, some become violent, crimes commence which results in a police force being established, and some troublemakers try to start a rebellion. Everything that can go wrong does go wrong. Add to that a psychopath who is killing people and making it look like Elder is eliminating the dissidents. What a recipe for disaster! Revis had me literally on the edge of my seat! There was so much tension and dischord, and Bartie is a brilliant antagonist. Aside from Elder, I think that he was my favourite character. His arguments were very persuasive and reasonable and, under different circumstances, I would have loved him. However, because he was against Elder, I just couldn't side with him. My only complaint is my irritation with Amy. Her emotions keep waffling back and forth regarding Elder. Does she love Elder, or not? She keeps lamenting, "If only I had a choice, then I would know." Well, just because she is the same age as Elder does not mean that she needs to become betrothed to him! What is precluding her from dating one of the 20s-generation on the ship? They really are not that much older than she is. Why does she think that Elder is her only option? Sheesh, there must be tons of young men who would jump at the chance to date someone as unique as Amy is. After all, she is not of the same ethnicity and the introduction of new blood to the gene pool wouldn't be a bad thing to a couple thousand people who are contained in the same environment! The last third of the book is a riveting ride, and so many secrets are revealed. I love how Revis continuously fleshed everything out, unraveling all of the lies. The ending left me wanting more, and I cannot wait to find out what happens next! I cannot believe that Shades of Earth, the final installment, is not due to be published until 2013! That is just too far away! I normally dislike when the same narrators are not used throughout the series. However, in this case, I am pleased that Tara Carrozza and Lucas Salvagno took over the reins. Even though the characters have only aged several months between the two books, circumstances have led to their jump in maturity. I felt that Carrozza and Salvagno added more maturity to the characters of Elder and Amy. MY RATING: 5 stars!! It was superb! I loved it, and I will likely re-read it again in the future! You should definitely read it! Thanks to Penguin Audio for the opportunity to review this fabulous audiobook!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad sequel to Across the Universe The Good Stuff * Talented writer, she is fantastic at making you feel like you are part of the world the characters live in * A lot of fun nerdy references for SCI FY geeks - hee hee "Trust No One" hee hee * Noticed a lot less of the made up words like Frex which I really appreciated * Fabulous character development for Amy and some realistic development for Elder * Lots of action to keep you interested - this story is far more dark and violent than Across the Universe * Like the cover, not as much as Across the Universe, but it still is a cover that makes me want to pick up the book * Orion is an intriguing character, deeply flawed, but fascinating The Not So Good Stuff * Same problem as with the first book, some of the plot points just are not logical * Has the issue that most second books in a trilogy have, filler from the first book to the finale - not bad but I think this series would have worked better as a book 1 and 2 * Elder was a bit of wuss through this installment, felt as frustrated with him as the characters are - I would have mutinied too * New characters didn't intrigue me at all and felt no connection to them * Main complaint what was the point of Orion making all the stupid clues -- seriously just tell them what is going on if time is an essence (more filler if you ask me) Favorite Quotes/Passages "if I had my choice between Elder at school or at a club or on a blind date, if I had my choice between Elder and every other boy in the world .... Would I love him then? Would he love me? Love without choice isn't love at all." "You can be objective. You will know which is the greater evil. When you know all that I know, all that Eldest tried to keep hidden, then you will know what to do." "A sky Kayleigh had never seen. And she couldn't live without the sky." Who Should/Shouldn't Read * For fans of Sci Fy YA * Would only recommend you read it if you had read the first book in the series first, other wise you would be what the frex is going on 3 Dewey's I received this from Penguin in exchange for an honest review

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Truth Is Out! As soon as I finished reading "Across The Universe" I had to read its sequel. There are so many secrets left behind from the first book and the second book does reveal everything we're wondering. In the second installment of the Across The Universe Trilogy, we learn what's really going on with Godspeed and Centauri Earth. What we knew from the first book is quite the opposite in the second novel. It's been three months since Amy was reanimated from her frozen chamber upon Godspeed. We believed that someone was trying to kill Amy in the first novel, but it turns out she's much more important to Godspeed. There's a major secret about Godspeed and the answer is waiting outside... in space. Elder is trying his best to become the leader he was raised to become, but the anti-drug residents of Godspeed are making it hard. The people of Godspeed are no longer being drugged and now have the power to voice their own opinions. Their main question is what is wrong with their home as food shortages and scattered murders are being committed. The evidence is all pointing to Elder for being the prime suspect. As the people of Godspeed are on the brink of mutiny, Amy and Elder discover what is waiting for them outside in space. What they discover can change everything around for the people of Godspeed as this new piece of information brings hope to everyone. Except for one person who wants the people to never reach Centauri Earth. In this mysterious addition to the trilogy, we go along with Amy and Elder racing against their doom to reach their new home. It's either find the new planet or die on Godspeed because supplies are running out. They both have heavy decisions on their shoulders, decisions that can change everyone's lives or keep them the same. The tantalizing truth revealed in the novel is that Centauri Earth is much closer than we believed. The question, is it as safe as everyone believed it was? Amy has the power to make this decision.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just as phenemonal as the first! The moment I turned the last page of Across the Universe I was counting down the days until A Million Suns was released, and this second installment has not let me down. All the excitement, intrigue, adventure, and mystery that made the first book so great is back, but the plot feels completely fresh and not just a rehash of last year's model. Normally I find that a lot of books are pretty predictable and their "twists" are things I figured out a hundred or so pages ago, but A Million Suns kept me guessing. I figured some things out before Amy, Elder, and the rest- like that the "home" Orion referred to was cryo pod 42- but other mysteries I was sure I had solved only to find myself proven completely wrong, but not in the kind of way that some stories do in which they hint and hint at one thing and then pull something out of their ass at the last minute that makes no sense. I had every chance in the world to figure out each twist and turn, but, like for the characters, not everything dawned on me right away and I think Revis's writing is brilliant in that regard. Most times a twist is completely out of nowhere or the characters just seems so incredibly stupid to the reader, but this book accomplishes the rare feat of staying away from these two extremes. It lets you draw and leap to your own conclusions, some right and some wrong, and just the entire tone of it is ingenious. While I agree with my fellow reviewer Christa on the fact that it was surprising that Amy was not in favour of a democracy, I still fully enjoyed the characterization. I love the depth given to characters like Kayleigh and Victria that we knew little of in the first book, and I also enjoyed the fact that Revis wasn't scared to kill off her characters. We already knew that from the first novel, but it's good to see that she has the gumption to kill off characters that survived the first book in the second, since a lot of authors tend to make those kind of characters untouchable and kill off newly-introduced redshirts. The plot, the ending, the pacing... everything was great. I bought this book at 7:00 on a school night and I told myself I would just read for an hour or two and then go do my math homework. I ended up reading it cover-to-cover and going to bed at three in the morning. People say that the middle work in a trilogy is always the weakest, so if that's true let's just say I can't wait to get my hands on Shades of Earth next year.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great story, disappointing characters I am very sad to say I didn't enjoy this one as much as I did Across the Universe. The main conflict was incredibly interesting. The ship has erupted into what is basically mutiny. Only it feels a lot of more serious and a lot more scary, then it ever has on stories that take place at sea. You can't maroon people in space. You can only kill them or send them out into the airless vaccumm that surrounds you. Neither sounds very pleasent. As a result I found people acted a lot more desperately and fought even harder for what they wanted. The result was lots of action. I love books with lots of action! They keep me hanging on until the last page. Admist all this great action was Amy. And I can honestly say she is the sole reason I didn't like A Million Suns as much as Across the Universe. Amy drove me nuts. Plain and simple. I found her pretty flaky. We're supposed to believe that she's strong and rational but time after time she simply ran to Elder or just plain ran away when things got tough. None of which gave the impression she was strong at all. I also wondered why she was never the one pushing for democracy. Coming from our present day North American society I would think that would be prominent in her mind when she saw the state of disarray the ship was in. I also never bought that she would forgive Elder so easily for unplugging her. Sure I knew she would forgive him eventually, but immediately seems like a stretch. She may never see her parents again, she's now forced to live on an isolated ship where everyone thinks she's a freak. She should be a little more angry that he was the cause of that. Maybe she's a bigger person than me. Overall still a great read that I read in one sitting and the pages flew by as I tried to find out what happened. I can't believe how long I have to wait for the next book!! I only hope Amy improves as the story progresses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Need....More....NOWWWWW! *A copy was provided by the publisher prior to it's official on-sale date for review* With Across the Universe by Beth Revis, I had a serious case of judging a book by it's genre. Sci-fi? Who was I kidding? I HATED Sci-fi. There was no way I would ever love Sci-fi...right? WRONG. What happened? I turned out to really love Across the Universe. In fact, I loved it so much I couldn't help passing along the word to my fellow co-workers who all purchased the novel and literally freaked out over it. It was a fandom and it was contagious! With my absolute love for Across the Universe pushed aside, I was beyond excited when I received a copy of A Million Suns for review in early August. I distinctly remember the day I got it (at a focus group meet) because I was suffering an insane summer cold and A Million Suns was the only thing that would help me get through it. And that's exactly what it did, it helped me get through the cold while also driving me crazy with suspense and excitement. A Million Suns by Beth Revis wonderfully picks up exactly where we were left off in Across the Universe. We're once again re-introduced to Amy and Elder, two very different characters who were pulled together by an extraordinary chain of events. Unfortunately, there isn't much I can say about A Million Suns without slapping this review with an insane amount of spoiler tags so I'll keep it brief and concise. A Million Suns, unlike it's predecessor, answered quite a few substantial questions readers were left off with whilst also adding a few new questions that left me with the desire to pull my own hair out. Despite that, there were some exciting new characters that I couldn't help enjoying, despite my slight hate towards them. In addition, I enjoyed the extreme character growth that took place between Amy and Elder. They were both substantially more mature in this installment then they were in Across the Universe. In fact, Elder stood out most of all. He was actually quite admirable! What can readers expect in A Million Suns? A reunion with a set of awesome characters A new mystery Some extremely exciting moments, chock full of suspense Developments that will, literally, shock you An ending that will make you want to kick someone in the teeth (Don't actually do it though....)
