In book two of the Across the Universe trilogy, "New York Times"-bestselling author Revis mesmerizes readers 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.
A Million Suns picks up not long after the end of Across the Universe, and if you remember, I was a big fan of that book (I <3 sci-fi like you wouldn't believe...we clearly need more of it in YA fiction. Seriously. I'm not kidding. Someone needs to get on that STAT).
I don't want to give too much away, since this one just came out not too long ago, and I know there are a lot of people haven't read Across the Universe yet, but there are three things you need to know.
One. This book is EXCELLENT. And if you haven't read book one, you need to do that ASAP, because I need to talk to everyone about this book.
Two. A Million Suns is, at its heart, a mystery. Yes, it happens to be set in space in a strange kind of almost-dystopian society, but it IS a mystery. Clues have been left for Amy to follow, and I loved how Revis managed to weave everything together without giving anything away too early. I was left flipping pages as quickly as I could so that I could figure out just what the heck was going on. LOVE.
Three. If you've read book one, you'll know that things were pretty tough for Amy and Elder. Well, for those of you who've read it and agree, I have this to say to you... Buckle up. Things have become a LOT more difficult for Elder and Amy.
In other news, I LOVE Amy. Elder's great and all, but, really, this is Amy's story. She's spunky and a whole lot tougher than I would be in her situation--a situation she shouldn't even BE in--and it's great to see the world Revis has created through her eyes.
If you like sci-fi and haven't started this series, I heartily suggest you pick up Across the Universe. And if you've finished Across the Universe, well...what are you waiting for?
Because as much as I loved Across the Universe...I think I love A Million Suns even more.
Happy Reading Everyone!
