Cover Thoughts: I LOOOVE IT!!!!! Oooh the stars and the colors and the picture, I just love it!!!
Godspeed was once 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. Everywhere she looks, she sees the walls of the spaceship Godspeed.
But there may be hope: Elder has assumed leadership of the ship. He’s finally free to act on his vision—no more Phydus, no more lies.
But when Elder learns shocking news about the ship, he and Amy race to discover the truth behind life on Godspeed. They must work together to unlock a mystery that was set in motion hundreds of years earlier. Their success—or failure—will determine the fate of the 2,298 passengers aboard Godspeed. But with each step, the journey becomes more perilous, the ship more chaotic, and the love between them more impossible to fight.
Beth Revis catapulted readers into the far reaches of space with her New York Times bestselling debut, Across the Universe. In A Million Suns, Beth deepens the mystery 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.
I was really excited to read this second book, I wasn’t a sci-fi fan but because of these books, I think I am! As long as it’s not too sci-fi, but then again maybe I am! I don’t know but these books definitely made me realize what I am missing! This book, as well as the first, made me sit at the edge of my seat while I try to unravel the mysteries and secrets of Godspeed.
One of the best parts of the book was the plot and pacing. Extremely well done, if there is one thing Revis is good at, is pacing and anticipation. After many of the secrets were revealed in book one Elder is trying to maintain peace. The people there are making it all very difficult for things to get done. At the same time, I don’t blame them for how they feel but I wanted to slap many of them. Chaos ensues and many blame Amy for their situation since that everything just plummets. Amy and Elder have to come together to solve each problem. However, Orion has left clues to the ship’s biggest secret. I loved being the reader and felt like I was trying to figure out the problem and mystery as well as help Elder and Amy solve issues with the ship and passengers.
I loved the character development for Elder. In the first book he seemed so unsure of himself and in this second book I see more of a backbone. YAY!
Another great thing about this second book was, I didn’t feel like it suffered from “middle book syndrome” if you know what I mean which is a HUGE PLUS.
Overall I felt it was an awesome middle book with great pacing and awesome character development.
