Just Finished Reactions: A Million Suns by Beth Revis

A Million Suns  - Beth Revis

Full review at my blog. Initial comments below

I literally just finished this. My initial thoughts? Excellently wow. 

I am always worried that middle trilogy books are not going live up to the first, but this one did. There were a few minor, minor things that gave me pause, but for the most part this had a strong plot, excellent main character development and an overall engaging story. Some twists I did it see coming while others hit me like a truck. 

Ingenious storytelling! This series is definitely worth your time. If you are not into scifi, no worries. Still check this out. It's like mystery scifi dystopian fantasy. Love it.
