A Million Suns - Beth Revis I first met Elder and Amy in Across the Universe and got sucked into their world from there. Beth Revis continues to fascinate me with the world she created in this book, A Million Suns. A world that has become even more confusing and dangerous as the series continues.Elder and Amy still continue to travel to Centauri-Earth. A planet that the cryogenic people on board the spaceship Godspeed are destined for.There was something about this book that I enjoyed more than the first book. I don't know what it was for sure, but I think it was the mystery surrounding Orion and what he had discovered. It was like a puzzle that had to be solved throughout the book. But, it was also more than that because relationships changed as the book continued -friends became enemies. People became more rebellious as they were weaned from Phydus, and there was plenty of suspense because of it. Elder, I think, developed in this book. Where before he had been coasting along as second-in-command, in this book he had to decide if he really wanted to become one or whether it would be in everyone's best interest if he stepped aside He had to make some very tough decisions - decisions that went against what Amy wanted.I was kind of disappointed in Amy in this book. She still seemed the same. Although, I know what she was going through was difficult, she never seemed to stand up for herself. She was always running away. It was fine up to a point, but sometimes there comes a time when you need to stand up for yourself. She never did. It just frustrates me that this was the way her character was written.What I really liked about this book was I got a greater understanding of Orion and his character. I liked the clues he gave Amy and I really started to sympathize with him. It was like he 'haunted' the book - more than he was an actual character in it.The writing was lovely and so was the pace. I never had a dull moment while reading it. I loved reading more about the people of Godspeed and if they were ever going to make it to Centauri-Earth. I am looking forward to the next in the series.I would recommend this book to any who has read 'Across the Universe' and anyone who likes science fiction.Anyway, now for my rating.Four out of five starsThis review can be found here http://magicalmanuscriptsandwritingthings.blogspot.co.nz/
