Across the Universe by Beth Revis
Amy is a cryogenically frozen passenger aboard the vast spaceship Godspeed. She expects to awaken on a new planet, 300 years in the future. But fifty years before Godspeed‘s scheduled landing, Amy’s cryo chamber is unplugged, and she is nearly killed.
Now, Amy is caught inside an enclosed world where nothing makes sense. Godspeed‘s passengers have forfeited all control to Eldest, a tyrannical and frightening leader, and Elder, his rebellious and brilliant teenage heir.
Amy desperately wants to trust Elder. But should she? All she knows is that she must race to unlock Godspeed‘s hidden secrets before whoever woke her tries to kill again.
I’m not fully concentrating on what he is saying, and I do’t really catch everything he says in reply. The room suddenly feels colder, and I clutch the blanket tighter to me. Something about being the future leader, again, like that has any weight to it. Future leader of the ship. Well, of course he is. I inspect him closer. He’s got wide, broad shoulders with just enough muscle that it’s not too obvious under his shirt-tunic thing, although I can see the hard corners of his biceps. Tall-much taller than me, but a few inches taller than most people, even though he’s probably about my age. He slouches, though. His face is narrow but inviting, with almond-shaped eyes the pierce. All this adds up to a certain something that makes him just look like the kind of guy who could lead a ship. It’s almost as if God had known Elder was going to be some sort of leader or whatever, so He gave him the right face and body for it.
I know most of you readers have most likely read this book but I am just getting to it so I thought I would share for those of you who have not read it. So far it is outstanding! What teasers do you have for me this week? New year and I am looking for new ideas so please leave me a comment 🙂
