This is the second book in the Across the Universe trilogy. You can read my review of the first one here.

As this is the second book in a series, you might get spoiled.
You can get this book here*.

It's been a while since Amy was woken up from her frozen sleep. Elder has become the leader of the ship, and he although he tries to lead, the people are restless, angry and confused.

There are still many secrets lurking about the ship, and now they must try to find a way to complete their initial mission: arrive and start a new life on Centauri-Earth.

I felt like this was a good sequel to the first book. We start off almost right after the first book ended. The fragile society that came with the Elder/Eldest system is falling into chaos. The people, accustomed to not having a voice or free will, don't really know what to do with themselves. I thought it was interesting to watch and quite realistic.

I found the characters to still be interesting, but I felt the story was a bit slow at times. It felt like the first one was so explosive, this was a little duller in comparison. And although there were still many secrets to uncover, it didn't feel quite as surprising as it built up to be. The ending was good, although I figured it was going to end that way.

I'm quite excited to read the next one though, as I wonder what's going to happen now. I'm pretty stoked to find out, so I've already started reading it.
