A great continuation of the sequel. The plot continues to thicken and the stakes get higher. Perfectly lives up to my expectations, and I can't wait to finish the trilogy.

Even if I continue to find the main characters in this series to be perhaps not the most interesting, I will say this in these books' favor: Beth Revis does a good job at slowly unraveling the layers of secrets onboard this spaceship, in a way that feels very measured and deliberate. You don't for a moment think she doesn't know what she is doing, which I appreciate, as sometimes in a book you can tell its plot is getting away from the author. Not so here, and it ends on a cliffhanger, ensuring that I'll be reading volume 3 to find out how it all wraps up.

I couldn't finish this novel. Amy and Elder were simply not interesting enough to keep my attention. I didn't care about them. I didn't care about their story. This was one of the worst books I've ever read. I don't recommend it.

I normally do NOT like serial novels but I was pleasantly surprised with A Million Suns. The story picks up where Across the Universe left off. Eldest is dead, Orion is frozen and the people are off the drug, Phydus. What problems Amy thought she had before is nothing compared to what she, Elder and Godspeed are about to face. Widespread fear, anger, dissent, clashes, rebellion and down right mutiny. Orion has left clues (and warnings) for Amy that will lead to a truth so great that he, and all the eldests before him, was willing to kill for. A truth about Godspeed and the planet Centauri. Add on to all this chaos and mayhem, Godspeed is dying. Literally. The old ship is losing the battle against time and if they don't find a way off the ship, it will take everyone with her. But then there is the warning. Orion placed the burden of a 'choice' on her shoulders. Stay on the dying ship, Godspeed or face the 'monsters' of planet Centauri?

The story is very engaging and kept me turning pages all through the night. The pacing was fast, the action kept going, and there was little to no romance so all focus was on the plot of the story!

The one thing I did not understand was Amy's hatred for Orion.????? Of all the people who hated her, tried to hurt and even kill her, Orion is the one she showed little emotion or hesitation to see killed. There were other inconsistencies but did not draw me too much away from the action and pace of the story.

Just like the first book, it had great ideas but didn't manage to pull it off. Though there were tons of moments that could have offered tension or action, it never really got exciting and seemed to drag on more than anything else. Kind of a disappointing series.

I really enjoyed this book. It was pretty suspensful with the Orion stuff and I can't wait for shades of earth

This book was totally not what I expected. Sure, there were the betrayals here and there. But what happens at the end is like Whoow. That did not just happen. It was an amazing sequel to Across the Universe. GO! AMY and ELDER! Read this if you like Across the Universe and it's mystery.

Beth Revis definitely knows how to write cliff-hangers. I can't wait for Shades of Earth. This trilogy has so many similarities with the original Star Trek TV Series. The first book, with people being sent cryogenically frozen into space for 300 years is very reminiscent of Space Seed (The Star Trek episode in which Khan is first introduced) and now in the second book, there are tons of elements done in Star Trek style. A million suns was a great book and in my opinion a bit better than the first.
