A Million Suns - Beth Revis This review was completed by Michael Cummings, one of our staff reviewers.In this sequel to Across the Universe, author Beth Revis takes us back aboard the colony ship Godspeed just three months after Amy was revived from cryogenic storage. The inhabitants of the Godspeed are struggling to deal with life without the calming effects of Phydrus, and at the same time with the shift in leadership paradigms that Elder is attempting to introduce. But not everyone is happy with the new freedoms of thought and free will, and the body count starts to rise as a message is clearly sent to anyone that will listen: Follow The Leader. At the same time, Amy is presented with a series of tantalizing clues left to her in video clips by Orion, the very man that tried to kill her in the last book. Are the two related? What is the secret that Orion is trying to guide Amy to, and why does he say that only she can decide the fate of the Godspeed? Readers will be captivated by Revis' flowing writing as the attempt to unravel these two ribbons of the plot.Following in the footsteps of works like Robert Heinlein’s “Orphans of the Sky,” Revis presents a fresh and entertaining story in this second book of her trilogy. The intensity and action increase as our two protagonists, Amy and Elder, deal with both a murderer on the loose, and the future of the Godspeed itself and everyone on board it. Recommended for science fiction readers starting at age 13 for mature plot elements.
