Introducing ACROSS THE UNIVERSE by Beth Revis

This week is the epic launch of ACROSS THE UNIVERSE by Beth Revis! I'm starting off the awesome, and throughout this week, there will be much more to come, with Beth herself wrapping it up for us on Friday.

First up: The trailer for ACROSS THE UNIVERSE says everything.



From Beth's website:
Summary: 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 awake 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 a 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.

Oh. My. Heck. Doesn't that sound amazing?

Well, it is. I've read it and it will blow your mind. Blow your mind, people! You can get signed copies (after tomorrow) and check out other awesomeness on Beth's book page.

My Twitter Review: With strong storytelling, brilliant writing, creepy characters, and a budding romance, ACROSS THE UNIVERSE has everything to satisfy readers. (Okay, so sue me. I have one extra character.)

Other Noteworthy Things:

Congrats, Beth! Here's to a successful launch week!

I'm actually really pissed because I was at B&N yesterday and tried to get XVI and Across the Universe, but XVI was out of stock and they wouldn't sell me ATU yet. This is good for the authors but not good for me because now a huge storm hit down here and I won't make it back for days. ARGGH!!!

Pam Harris said...

I'm DYING to read this book. So much so that I think I've entered every contest imaginable to win it. :)

I was one of the lucky ducks who won an ARC. Exciting read all the way!

Nikki (Wicked Awesome Books) said...

I read it, I loved it, and I NEED the finished copy! I'm going out early-ish tomorrow to get AtU, so the snowstorm that's coming my way cannot prevent me from holding it in my hands :D

Janet Johnson said...

Seriously can't wait to read it. It sounds wonderful!

L Parker said...

I have the privilege of being friends with Beth and she gave me an ARC. It is amazingly wonderful!! There is mystery, adventure, and wonderful characters (good and bad). I can't wait to get a hardback copy!

Congrats, Beth! I read ATU this past weekend, and I absolutely loved it. I couldn't put it down!

Meredith said...

I got to Beth's page from a link off Miss Snark's First Victim a few days ago, not knowing anything about the book. Read the first chapter, and boy did that do the job for me. I LOVED it. Count me among those who can't wait to give it a go.
