A love out of time. A spaceship built of secrets and murder.
Seventeen-year-old Amy joins her parents as frozen cargo aboard the vast spaceship Godspeed and expects to awaken on a new planet, three hundred years in the future. Never could she have known that her frozen slumber would come to an end fifty years too soon and that she would be thrust into the brave new world of a spaceship that lives by its own rules.
Amy quickly realizes that her awakening was no mere computer malfunction. Someone-one of the few thousand inhabitants of the spaceship-tried to kill her. And if Amy doesn't do something soon, her parents will be next.
Now Amy must race to unlock Godspeed's hidden secrets. But out of her list of murder suspects, there's only one who matters: Elder, the future leader of the ship and the love she could never have seen coming.
Revis's debut is an addiction that will leave readers begging for more!
Across the Universe is a refreshing addition to the YA market which is currently saturated with paranormal creatures. I'm a huge paranormal fan but even I want something different every now and then. Across the Universe shipped me into a whole new world filled with the complexities of mankind and what we would do for survival. This Sci-Fi novel wrapped me up and held on tight. I did not want to put it down!
Revis created some complex and exciting characters. I love the characters in this book! And I mean every last one of them, even the frightening leader. I can't imagine being Amy. She has to deal with a whole new way of life while aboard a ship in space at that. The alternating point of views between Amy and Elder really captured the emotions and struggle of what the characters faced on the ship, Godspeed. Revis did an amazing job. I couldn’t get enough of these characters!
While reading this novel, there were times when I was in awe of the details, world building, and politics that Revis created. She truly amazed me with her creativity of life & the complexities of Godspeed. Not everything is black and white and Revis truly captured the burdens of what leaders must face during crises. All I can say is this is one series you don't want to miss! I'm ready for the next installment (I wish I could fast forward to next year)!
I'm just a girl with a crazy book obsession.
