"A Million Suns" (Across the Universe Book 2) ~ Beth Revis
Author: Beth Revis
Publication: January 10, 2012
Stars! How the frex am I supposed to wait another year to find out what happens with Amy and Elder?! *sighs*
There's always pressure for an author to deliver a follow up book that's just as good if not better than the first and "A Million Suns" does not disappoint.
This sequel has it all, action, adventure, romance, even a mystery to solve that could change the fate of everyone aboard the Godspeed. As Elder continues to solidify his role as Godspeed's new leader, he's met with resistance especially now that Phydus is no longer in use. The fact that there are many who view Amy as a threat doesn't help, and things only get more complicated after Elder uncovers a shocking secret, one that will have he and Amy searching for clues that could affect everyone on board.
The more time they spend together, the less they're able to deny the feelings that are developing between them but Amy still questions. She believes love is a choice and wonders if she and Elder weren't the only two their age, if they both had a choice, would they still choose each other? Better yet, would she still choose Elder because, let's face it, we KNOW he'd choose her. (Personally, I think she needs to "choose" to stop frexing thinking so much.)
As their search continues, becoming more dangerous at every turn, the ship goes into complete chaos. Frex! Will Amy and Elder be able to find the answers they need in time and at what cost? Trusts will be broken, loyalties questioned, lives lost and love tested, all for the sake of hope in a New Earth...a new beginning.
