Godspeed was once fueled by lies. Now it is ruled by chaos. It’s been three months. In that time, Amy has learned to hide who she is. Elder is trying to be the leader he’s always wanted to be. But as the ship gets more and more out of control, only one thing is certain: They have to get off the ship.
My heart stopped from the moment I read the words in page one. Remarkably petrifying and mysterious! I was always on the edge of my seat. It was that gripping. Godspeed is like this one giant ball of secrets and puzzles that waits for someone to unravel it. And in the end, well, we did.
Three months has gone since Eldest died and Orion was frozen, and Elder is leader. Chaos starts to build up and before you knew it, there's mutiny. Traitors emerge, fear and rage and depression can be seen flashed in the people's eyes, mysterious and twisted deaths, but most of all, the deepest darkest secret of the ship is revealed, and worst of all, Orion knew it all along and has left clues for Amy to discover it. Doors after doors of the puzzle are cleared up and it gets more exciting when it's revealed that the ship has already arrived in Centauri-Earth, and they were already orbiting around it for so long (since the "Plague")-- that's not the biggest secret even. Decisions must be made, and it's not that easy when someone's purposely trying to stop planet landing.
A Million Suns is a million times more exciting and deliberating from Across the Universe. Beth Revis' wide imagination and riveting writing captured my interest with every page I read. I must and need to know what will happen next and what's this big secret Orion's keeping and the reason he's a little crazy. The way where things went almost choked me to death! Okay that's a bit of an exaggeration but it was really hard to grasp! I'm talking about the fact that they've arrived or they're already there! I admire Amy more in this sequel because of her firmness in her decisions and for being braver to face the truths--of the situation that they arein and of her real feelings for Elder. Elder on the other hand is still as handsome as ever! Haha. Plus he actually is pretty okay in how he handled the problems in the ship, imagine how much he fought the use of Pythus even mote when the people got more feisty and ridiculous and stubborn. The other characters especially the traitors and villains were there. Though are hidden, and I got to the point where I don't care who it is anymore, I just want the problems to be solved! Yeah, im reacting like I'm one of them, lol. Anyway, the ending was satisfying, if only they came to that conclusion in the first place ( im talking generations ago) then the problem could have been solved early on. However now i want to read the next book, and the last one of the trilogy and January 2013 is so far away! Haha.
