Amy has left the life she loves for a world 300 years away.
Trapped in space and frozen in time, Amy is bound for a new planet. But fifty years before she's due to arrive, she is violently woken, the victim of an attempted murder. Now Amy's lost on board and nothing makes sense - she's never felt so alone.
Yet someone is waiting for her. He wants to protect her - and more if she'll let him.
But who can she trust amidst the secrets and lies? A killer is out there - and Amy has nowhere to hide...
As soon as I read the blurb of this book I just knew it was something special. Even the cover looks alluring. I've really started to love dystopian book and as soon as I heard of Across the Universe, I knew it would be a book I would enjoy.
I loved Elder instantly and just as much disliked Eldest. They were two completely different people. Elder was great. Caring, kind and lovable he can as just be a great hero. And, It was really nice to see everything through his eyes giving us a glimpse in how he saw everything.
Especially when it came to Amy. Revis most certainly portrayed her image beautifully with such simplicity. Amy was a unique character to the book and when her perspective of things came through it made everything even more thriller.
I extremely loved the whole murder mystery thing going on and the question of who it could be with many people of possibilities. I had my suspicions and I was relieved when I found who it was.
No event was more shocking than the end. That was the point where everything came through and made the book even more awesome. I loved reading this and cannot wait to read more books by Revis!
