A Million Suns
A Million Suns
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. And everywhere she looks, she sees the walls of the spaceship Godspeed. But there may just be hope: Elder has assumed leadership of the ship. He’s finally free to enact his vision – no more Phydus, no more lies.
But when Elder discovers shocking news about the ship, he and Amy race to discover the truth behind life on Godspeed. They must work together to unlock a puzzle that was set in motion hundreds of years earlier, unable to fight the romance that’s growing between them and the chaos that threatens to tear them apart.
In book two of the Across the Universe trilogy, New York Times bestselling author Beth Revis mesmerizes us again with a brilliantly crafted mystery filled 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.
What People Are Saying
“Revis’ interweaving of science fiction, romance,and action is deft—an especially impressive feat given the condensed time line under which this story operates. …Revis just might make straight-up sci-fi cool again.”
–Booklist, December 1, 2011
“The second in Revis’ Across the Universe trilogy is as twisty as the first! You’ll feel the spaceship walls closing in as Elder and Amy race to find a way to save the day. Can’t wait for the third, to find out how it all ends.”
–Romantic Times Reviews; 4.5 Stars
“Oftentimes, the second book in a series struggles to live up to the expectations set in its kickoff, but not here. Revis has penned a fast-paced, action-packed follow-up with her dystopian, sci-fi thriller, “A Million Suns,” that explores not only the nature of authority and loyalty but fear of the unknown and fulfilling one’s personal destiny.”
–LA Times, 8 January 2011
“The twist at the end is unexpected and a wonderful turn for the story to take. The cliffhanger ending ensures that readers will be waiting anxiously for the third book in the trilogy.”
“There literally isn’t one dull moment in the entire story!”
“Revis’ shining brilliance is the fierce tension about survival (is Godspeed deteriorating? can people survive terrorism inside an enclosed spaceship?) and the desperate core question of whether any generation will ever reach a planet. Setting and plot are the heart and soul of this ripping space thriller, and they’re unforgettable.”
–Kirkus, starred review
“Knowing readers will trace provocative questions about the seeds of revolution, the French Revolution in particular, through to modern dilemmas of medical ethics, sound governing policy, and institutional justice, but they will also be thoroughly caught up in both Elder’s and Amy’s negotiations of self-doubt and first love.” –Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books (BCCB 1/12)

The paperback edition of A MILLION SUNS is getting a facelift to match the new look of the series! This edition will be available in November 2012 in America, and will feature a shiny new cover that I think perfectly captures the feeling of the spaceship.
Little known fact! I didn’t design the double-winged eagle that was embossed on the original hard cover of the first book (American edition–you can see it if you take off the dust jacket). But I loved the logo so much that I actually built it into the story, and it becomes a clue for Amy and Elder in the third book. I was very relieved then, that the image remained in the repackaged books with the new covers! You can see it here just over the title.
