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 spaceshipGodspeed.
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.
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?
