Full review posted on my blog: www.jenryland.blogspot.com

These books are one part sci-fi, one part dystopian, and one part thriller. The concept is unique and the plotting clever. In A Million Suns, the characters continue to face plenty of obstacles, both emotional and literal. Amy misses her life on earth and longs to be reunited with her parents, who are tantalizingly close but heartbreakingly silent in their cryo-boxes. Elder finds leadership abruptly thrust upon him and struggles with his confidence.

As all good dystopian novels should, A Million Suns raises weighty philosophical and ethical questions. How can political power be wielded fairly and justly? How much dissent and individual thought can a society bear? What is the nature of freedom?

A Million Suns ends with a brand-new cliffhanger as the residents of Godspeed face a difficult and frightening choice.


I'll definitely be on board for book three -- I like the way this series inventively mixes genres and always keeps me thinking.
