Across the Universe (Book 1 in the Trilogy) by Beth Revis

Published by Penguin Group

A review by John Irvin


“The President called it the ‘epitome of the American dream.’ Daddy called it the ‘unholy alliance of business and government.’” –Amy.

            Amy and her parents thought they would sleep for three hundred years in cryo-chambers and awaken on the new planet, Centauri-Earth. But, fifty years prior to the scheduled awakening, Amy is violently yanked from oblivion to find out someone tried to murder her.

            Now stuck on a ship that—the largest one ever constructed two-hundred-and-fifty years ago—feels so constricting and suffocating because of the 2,300 plus passengers aboard it, Amy finds one confusing question after another.

            In order to survive, the passengers have given up all rights and power to a ruler called the Eldest. Each Eldest has raised an heir, naming him Elder.

            There is something wrong beneath all the mystery and revelations. Will Amy and Elder be able to figure it out?

            This story will always have a special place in my heart. Besides the thought-provoking, spine-chilling points and suspenseful plots, I fell in love with the two main characters. Elder and Amy became two of my good friends. I was always rooting for them, even when I wasn’t sure I trusted them.

            Just like any person, they had their trials, their mistakes, their misdeeds, but they learned and grew as heroes should always do.

            This is the first book of the trilogy, so expect a thrilling cliff-hanger at the end. But that’s okay, I’ll write the next review about the sequel.
