[Review] A Million Suns by Beth Revis ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Summary:

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 spaceship Godspeed.

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.



Review

The first book in this series, Across the Universe, blew me away. I was amazed at the world Beth Revis created and I questioned myself why didn't I read this series any sooner? I'm a sucker for anything space related so with Across the Universe, I instantly fell in love with.

With such high hopes from Across the Universe, I thought A Million Suns would be way better. After how the first book ended, I was eager to learn how Amy and Elder would manage Godspeed after *spoilerly event*. But after finishing A Million Sons, I felt disappointed. The ending was great, a major game changer, but the development from the start to end felt lost to me.

One major thing I like about this series is the dual point of views. I enjoyed how the same story was told from 2 different perspectives. I wish this was emulated more in books. I enjoyed Elder's perspective the most. His character growth from Across the Universe to A Million Sons is clearly evident in his actions and his way of thinking. 

The ending was a major cliff hanger, major like extreme cliff hanger. This series is like going down a rabbit hole with unexpected revelations and truths about Godspeed. Many of these twists I didn't see coming. Though it was very unexpected and well crafted, I felt lost in the middle of the way through. 

I can't wait to see what is in store for Amy and Elder in book 3, Shades of Earth.
