A Million Suns brings to mind all the best parts of my dad's Heinlein and Asimov novels that I read growing up. Deep philosophical questions, speculative future technology, and bold adventure.

Amy and Elder are thrown into adventures both separately and together, and every story is a good one. They thought they had discovered all the secrets hidden on Godspeed, but it soon begins to look like they've barely scratched the surface. Will they share their new discoveries with each other, or will secrets turn into lies and yet more cover-ups? The twist and turns had me frantically turning pages and staying up way past bedtime.

I love the way this novel manages to give me a real sense of the closeness and claustrophobia of life on Godspeed, yet it still manages to ring of the mind-boggling distances travelled by the ship. One of my favorite moments was when Elder actually steps outside the ship (in a spacesuit, ok?) and sees the stars and the vastness for the first time. It's just awesome. My imagination was completely engaged.

Revis has managed to deliver a solid, well-written and engaging follow up to her debut novel. An excellent read for sci-fi lovers, readers looking for a new spin on dystopian, and also those who like having their brain poked into an active thought pattern once in a while. FIVE STARS!

I received this audiobook for review from the publisher. I did not receive any compensation for my review, and the views expressed herein are my own.

When I reviewed Across the Universe, I said that I thought that it was a solid series opener even though it didn't knock my socks off. Apparently, Revis was just getting warmed up because A Million Suns totally rocked!!

The second in the series picks up 98 days from when Amy was awakened from the cryo chamber. Orion, the ship's previous Elder, sends Amy on somewhat of a scavenger hunt to search for clues to discover the secrets that Eldest was trying to hide. Although he tried to do the right and noble thing, it appears that ruling without Phydus may be clearly more difficult than he envisioned. The inhabitants awaken from their drugged-up stupor and some residents cause dissension. Total chaos abounds: People stop working, the food supply becomes low, some become violent, crimes commence which results in a police force being established, and some troublemakers try to start a rebellion. Everything that can go wrong does go wrong. Add to that a psychopath who is killing people and making it look like Elder is eliminating the dissidents. What a recipe for disaster!

Revis had me literally on the edge of my seat! There was so much tension and dischord, and Bartie is a brilliant antagonist. Aside from Elder, I think that he was my favourite character. His arguments were very persuasive and reasonable and, under different circumstances, I would have loved him. However, because he was against Elder, I just couldn't side with him.

My only complaint is my irritation with Amy. Her emotions keep waffling back and forth regarding Elder. Does she love Elder, or not?

If you didn't already know that Beth Revis is a genius, you should realize this after reading A Million Suns. I'm always worried with sequels that they won't live up to the crazy expectations I have for them, since I loved the first book so much. But in my (not so humble) opinion, AMS is better than Across the Universe... SO MUCH BETTER. Every little thing that left me feeling unsatisfied with in AtU is dealt with in AMS. LOVED IT.

These characters have been put in near impossible situations, where they're forced to make life altering choices. It isn't easy, and there's very little wiggle room. And you keep asking yourself "can they do this? I can't possible see a way out of this mess!" Maybe there is, and maybe there isn't. Even after reading the book, I'm not so sure myself. Nothing's easy or simple, and morality (like many real life situations) isn't black and white, but rather varying shades of grey.

I know some reviews of AtU mentioned that the chemistry between Elder and Amy really wasn't "there". Well, it's here and it's arrived now. And it's hot (but still, very much appropriate for their age and the age of targeted readers). They both really bloom as characters and individuals, but as friends as well. One thing I really loved is that similar to Ally Condie's Crossed (as mentioned in my review of it), there is the question of how important it is to allow a choice in love. Exactly what does love have to do with choice? Both books come to similar conclusions, but I think it's a fascinating story they tell as they explore this. It really made me wonder whether I truly believed that myself.

And for Harley fans, I can promise you that he's involved in his own way.
