Goodreads Description: 

It’s been three months since Amy was unplugged. The life she always knew is over. Everywhere she looks, she sees the walls of the spaceship Godspeed.
But there may be hope: Elder has assumed leadership of the ship. He's finally free to act on his vision—no more Phydus, no more lies.
But when Elder learns shocking news about the ship, he and Amy race to discover the truth behind life on Godspeed. They must work together to unlock a mystery that was set in motion hundreds of years earlier. Their success—or failure—will determine the fate of the 2,298 passengers aboard Godspeed. But with each step, the journey becomes more perilous, the ship more chaotic, and the love between them more impossible to fight.
Beth Revis catapulted readers into the far reaches of space with her New York Times bestselling debut, Across the Universe. In A Million Suns, Beth deepens the mystery 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.

It took me a little bit to get back into the story of Godspeed and it's passengers but once I did I was I couldn't leave. I was carrying this book around all day, holding it with one hand while I cooked, cleaned and finally finished it up. I loved this story. It's totally scifi and fun. Amy and Elder have a complicated relationship and I really like the way that Revis develops it. There were a couple of good twists in the story. I'm eager to see what happens in the third book when the passengers of Godspeed begin colonizing the new planet. Will Elder develop into the leader he needs to be? What about Amy - will she be able to find a home? Will her parents be OK? Is there a deeper plan for the original mission that Godspeed's passengers know nothing about?

I recommend this series.
