A Millions Sun (Across the Universe #2)
Author: Beth Revis
Publication Date: January 10, 2012
Have you read a book that has ever given you goosebumps? For me, I haven't experienced that until I read this. Life gets tougher for Elder as he deposed the use of Phydus. Taking the role of Eldest, it becomes difficult for him and Amy to be together as responsibilities build up. The people begin to realize that they don't need Elder, that they are free to do whatever they want. Some become lazy, leaving off their duties and some commit suicide. With Orion's clues left all over the ship, Amy is determined as ever to figure out out the secrets that the previous leaders kept hidden.
You know with middle books, I expect the romance to increase since usually the first book are the starting point of a relationship, but with this one, the romance is very minimal. Is that a bad thing? Certainly not. To me, you don't need a lot of romance for it to be a great book, just a spark of romance or chemistry is enough for me. If Beth was to bring the romance up a notch, it would certainly bring the book to fall short. With so much twists, I don;t think the romance would've helped the situation. Amy and Elder's moments were quick but incredibly cute.
A Million Suns, the second installment in the Across the Universe trilogy, has the perfect amount of action, thrill, and mystery; you'll have a hard time putting this down. With Beth Revis' descriptive writing, you'll be excited to turn the pages.
