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.

A MILLION SUNS was quite an interesting sequel to the first book in the trilogy, Across the Universe. I liked it and I didn't like it and a lot of it had to do with the characters! I mean the characters made me go bonkers and I had an urge to throw the book across the room in annoyance. But overall, it was an amazing sequel!

Of course I couldn't put the book down because so much happened in this book that I couldn't afford to miss a minute of what was going on. Elder is now, The Eldest, but he wants to keep going by Elder. And he is goal to to be the leader that Godspeed needs. He wants the ship to land and trying very hard to be a leader everyone of the ship can be proud of, but everything gets chaotic on the ship very quickly, especially since everyone is off of Phydus.

Anyway everyone refuses to work and is disobeying all of the rules and causing riots and I feel really bad for Elder because everything is turning out not so good for him. In the meantime, some murders have taken place with a note left at the scene, "Follow the Leader", which is really bad for Elder. Orion left some clues for Amy about this big secret he found about the status of the new planet/Godspeed!

So I thought A MILLION SUNS was really good up to the point where Amy was getting way to impatient about having her parent's unfrozen every second she hears somewhat good news about Godspeed. At the end of A MILLION SUNS Amy wouldn't look at things rationally, but took things way too personally. She didn't agree with what Elder decided at the end and I'm sorry to say this but she was seriously acting like a spoiled little brat.

I had some problems with A MILLION SUNS as you can tell, but it was still pretty and good and I am looking forward to the third book and can't wait to see what happens.


  1. Your review makes me want to move this up on my TBR pile. Good review.


  2. Just caught this book in the teaser tuesday meme. I was excited to read your review. It was very helpful in that I did not know it was a sequel. Will have to check out the first book. Thanks!
