A love out of time. A spaceship built of secrets and murder.
Seventeen-year-old Amy joins her parents as frozen cargo aboard the vast spaceship Godspeed and expects to awaken on a new planet, three hundred years in the future. Never could she have known that her frozen slumber would come to an end fifty years too soon and that she would be thrust into the brave new world of a spaceship that lives by its own rules.
Amy quickly realizes that her awakening was no mere computer malfunction. Someone-one of the few thousand inhabitants of the spaceship-tried to kill her. And if Amy doesn't do something soon, her parents will be next.
Now Amy must race to unlock Godspeed's hidden secrets. But out of her list of murder suspects, there's only one who matters: Elder, the future leader of the ship and the love she could never have seen coming.


First off i just want to say how much i love this cover and i really like the fact that if you look at the underside of it it has the blue print of Godspeed and where the authors bio is insted of the author picture you have amy in her cryo tank! I never really read scfi books apart from the host by s.meyer and this book but that might have to change because Across the universe was unlike anything i have ever read it had me from the 1st page when amy and her family where being cryogenically frozen and held me til the end because i had to know what all the secerts where on Godspeed. Amy and Elder are both great characters and i really enjoyed reading about them and loved how the chapters were written with Amy and Elder swapping POV each time. All the characters in this book made it what it was too. Across the universe is a totaly awesome book and all i can say is please please please beth write a 2nd book because i need to read more about Amy and Elder.
