A Million Suns by Beth Revis

A Million Suns by Beth Revis
2012, Razorbill
Series: Book 2 of Across the Universe

Synopsis:  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.

The Good: Oh my, Beth Revis is skilled at the major mind-blowing plot twist. A Million Suns kept me on my toes, just as Across the Universe did. I found myself repeatedly surprised and the ending just hooked me hardcore for the next book. There is a large amount of character growth and development, especially for Elder which felt very true to life and made the book all the more convincing.

The Bad: Amy's development is stunted. She still comes off as a whiny, self-involved baby. Yeah, her life is less than awesome and it's not fair what she has to deal with, but she tends to pout rather than make any effort to improve or even just accept her situation.
