Five Pentacle Review: A Million Suns, by Beth Revis


I know, I know, the last book I reviewed also got five pentacles. What can I say? I've been reading a lot of fabulous books lately. And A Million Suns, the second book in the Across the Universe trilogy, is no exception.

Without giving anything away for anyone who hasn't read it or Across the Universe, this book was everything I hoped it would be, and more. Between the fast paced chapters, the tantalizing ending, and a plot thicker than Southern gravy, it was unputdownable. I finished it in a matter of hours, and now I feel like if I don't find out what happens next I'll die!

Throughout the story you're constantly second-guessing what you know—or think you know—based on the clues Amy and Elder discover. Clues left predominantly by the last person they would expect to help them. And the last person they trust. If you cared about the characters at all in Across the Universe, you'll grow to love them even more in A Million Suns. I know I did. So much so that I had to email Beth and tell her how much I enjoyed reading it. Yeah, I'm a shameless fangirl like that. ;)

I am DYING to read this one. I've heard it's even better than ATU, and that's saying a lot. :-)

I sort of became more critical of AtU in hindsight, but I still enjoyed it and I do definitely want to read A Million Suns.

Glad to hear it was so good! :) Did you like it better than AtU?

Both are on my list. I'm probably the last person on the planet to read Across the Universe, but I'll get to it. I'm kind of glad I've waited so long because now I can read them back to back.
