Book Description:
Godspeed was once fueled by lies. Now it is ruled by chaos.

It’s been three months since Amy was unplugged. The life she always knew is over. Everywhere she looks, she sees the walls of the spaceship Godspeed.

But there may be hope: Elder has assumed leadership of the ship. He’s finally free to act on his vision—no more Phydus, no more lies.

But when Elder learns shocking news about the ship, he and Amy race to discover the truth behind life on Godspeed. They must work together to unlock a mystery that was set in motion hundreds of years earlier. Their success—or failure—will determine the fate of the 2,298 passengers aboard Godspeed. But with each step, the journey becomes more perilous, the ship more chaotic, and the love between them more impossible to fight.

Beth Revis catapulted readers into the far reaches of space with her New York Times bestselling debut, Across the Universe. In A Million Suns, Beth deepens the mystery with action, suspense, romance, and deep philosophical questions. And this time it all builds to one mind-bending conclusion: They have to get off this ship

I definitely enjoyed this book more than the first.  Like I said before, I think it has to do with the narrators.  Elder’s voice on this audiobook was more suited to the character. 
I enjoyed the mystery clues left for Amy to find.  She takes all that happens in stride.  She continues to be one of my favorite characters.  Amy is persistent in finding the truth. She also does her best to fight her fears.  Elder wasn’t as impressive to me this time.  I think it has a lot to do with his attitude.  He refuses to ask for help when he should.  He thinks he can handle everything himself.  That’s one of his biggest flaws. He acted on the circumstances from the first book, and didn’t think things all the way through. He allowed his emotions to rule him.  
The plot in A Million Suns was great.  Not only are Elder and Amy led on a scavenger hunt for clues, but people are being murdered.  You’ll be taken on a fast paced journey to figure out the message behind the clues and who’s behind the killings.  It’s a complete shocker.  
I wasn’t sure I’d like this one after my experience with Across the Universe, but I’m glad I stuck with this trilogy. Great mix of sci-fi, with a little romance.
