Summary (Spoilers, highlight to view):
Godspeed was 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.
Blurb: Just when you thought this series couldn't get any better.

Review: So I was totally in love with the first book in this series, but if I could go back I would give it less stars just so you would know exactly how awesome this book is.

Yup. That's right. The second book is better than the first. Almost NEVER is the second book in a trilogy better than the first. But boy howdy, this book is.

So many twists, turns, personal turmoil, and more! There is some sequel-phase going on, but it didn't take away from the book. I loved watching Amy discover herself, and Elder's fine and dandy too, but the best part of this book is definitely the mystery. And when you find out the mystery... woah. Hold on to your hats, folks.

But that ending... yeesh. Here's the warning label I made up for it:

*Warning: the end of this book will leave you so far off the edge of your seat that falling is a serious danger. Beware injury.*

I wish I could say more, but unfortunately I was dumb and let myself get trapped by finals week before writing my review. So all of this that I'm telling you is what stuck with me even 2-months after finishing the book.
I stayed up until 1am to finish, and I wish I could scrub my brain clean of this book just so I could read it again for the first time.

  1. I really enjoyed ATU, so I can't wait to read this one. You make it sound so good!

  2. I love it when the sequels are just as good or better than the first book. This review makes me want to pick up this series!

  3. Haha, I definitely agree with that warning ;)

  4. I loved AtU as well! I saw AMS on our local bookstore and I have to tore myself away because it's just so expensive. But if ever I dropped by again I'd surely wouldn't let it slip through my hands again! :)

  5. I'm picking this up at the library today! Yipee!

  6. I loved Across the Universe and am DYING to read A Million Suns! Thanks for hiding the spoilers=)

  7. I can't wait to read this!! I love when sequels are just as amazing (if not more so) than the first! I think this will be my next book to read :D

    Mackenzie @ Oh, For the Love of Books!

  8. I started this one, but still haven't been able to get into it. I can't seem to follow what's happening from chapter to chapter. Weird.

  9. Oh good! We keep hearing this is better than the first. Always a pleasant surprise.
