Book 1 in the New York Times bestselling trilogy, perfect for fans of Battlestar Gallactica and Prometheus!

WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO SURVIVE ABOARD A SPACESHIP FUELED BY LIES?

Amy is a cryogenically frozen passenger aboard the spaceship Godspeed. She has left her boyfriend, friends--and planet--behind to join her parents as a member of Project Ark Ship. Amy and her parents believe they will wake on a new planet, Centauri-Earth, three hundred years in the future. But fifty years before Godspeed's scheduled landing, cryo chamber 42 is mysteriously unplugged, and Amy is violently woken from her frozen slumber.

Someone tried to murder her.

Now, Amy is caught inside an enclosed world where nothing makes sense. Godspeed's 2,312 passengers have forfeited all control to Eldest, a tyrannical and frightening leader. And Elder, Eldest's rebellious teenage heir, is both fascinated with Amy and eager to discover whether he has what it takes to lead.

Amy desperately wants to trust Elder. But should she put her faith in a boy who has never seen life outside the ship's cold metal walls? All Amy knows is that she and Elder must race to unlock Godspeed's hidden secrets before whoever woke her tries to kill again.

"Entirely original, deeply compelling, and totally unputdownable--I've found a new favorite!" --Carrie Ryan, New York Times bestselling author of The Forest of Hands and Teeth

"A murder mystery, a budding romance, and a dystopian world gracefully integrated into a sci-fi novel that blows away all expectation." --Melissa Marr, New York Times bestselling author of Wicked Lovely

Hanami, January 30, 2013 (view all comments by Hanami)
An amazing sequel to "Across the Universe". At first I was skeptical about this series but my friend (who shall remain nameless) convinced me to read "Across the Universe". I am thankful each day that she had me read it. I was hooked from the first page and became more engrossed the deeper I delved in to the book. Once I reached the last page I wanted to cry over the amount of sorrow that came from reaching the end. The fact that I had to wait almost a year for "A Million Suns" didn't help either.... But that is beside the point.

The day "A Million Suns" came out I was at my local bookstore running to the Young Adult section to grab the second to last copy of this amazing installment of "Across the Universe" (Ironically the same thing happened just a few days ago when I got the final book) at first I was nervous that with the bar set so high from Beth Revis last book how she was going to keep me as engrossed with "A Million Suns" as she had with "Across the Universe" those fears where quickly settled when I started reading and found myself reading late in to the night and forgetting to do my homework (or sleep for that matter) in lui of reading.

I refuse to spoil any of this book but I will say this -- again when I reached the last page I did two things that undoubtedly classify me as a true blue book nerd....
I screamed and started crying over the fact I again had to wait a year for the final book. ("Shades of Earth" in case you were wondering)

Beth Revis I worship the ground you walk on for creating these amazing books and giving me and other readers the Universe of Amy and Elder.
