A Million Suns
(Across the Universe #2)
Across The Universe was awesome. So could Beth Revis live up to the twists and mysteries to make the second book just as good/better?
There were even more strange and mysterious things, clues, deaths, doors. Unlike many books (mainly dystopian) where the first novel is one thing or place and then they escape and the second is crazy different, this is more of the same in a very good way. The characters all acted realistically – all of them, every single person on the spaceship – and I felt so sorry for Elder having to try and control them all when a rebellion seems possible. But these characters actually do things instead of thinking about doing something for ages. Every chapter has some big event and I found it hard not to skip ahead!
I really liked A Million Suns because it was so different to all the other books out there at the moment. The sequel Shades of Earth is out now in the US, but here in the UK I’m still waiting for its release in May…
