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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A horrifying and deliciously claustrophobic masterpiece that’s part sci-fi, part dystopian, and entirely brilliant.”

    Kiersten White, New York Times bestselling author of Paranormalcy and Supernaturally

  • “A murder mystery, a budding romance, and a dystopian world gracefully integrated into a sci-fi novel that blows away all expectation.”

    Melissa Marr, New York Times bestselling author of Wicked Lovely

  • “Entirely original, deeply compelling, and totally unputdownable—I’ve found a new favorite!”

    Carrie Ryan, New York Times bestselling author of The Forest of Hands and Teeth

  • “Amy’s individuality, her rebellion, and her fierce desire for freedom inspire Elder to act on his own doubts and defy Eldest—his mentor and keeper—with shocking results. Eldest’s methods of twisting history and altering the lives of this captive community are a frightening echo of tyrants in our own history, and Across the Universe challenges readers to consider the impact of unchecked power, blind trust, and the ability of one dissenting voice to make a difference.”

    Amazon.com, editorial review

  • “A compulsively readable crowd-pleaser.”

    Booklist

  • “The mystery will propel readers along, and the budding romance between Amy and Elder set against the backdrop of a dystopian society will appeal even to readers who don’t enjoy science fiction. Revis’ thrilling debut novel hints at more great books to come.”

    School Library Journal

    " I couldn't wait to throw this book away from me and never touch it again.. The idea of the novel started out great, I mean a girl frozen on a spaceship suddenly awakened by an attempted murder?! Sounds fantastic but I was beyond disappointed. The whole story was so obvious, it was easy to guess how things would turn out. The characters were boring, annoying and ridiculous I mean eldest and elder?.. Probably the only character I enjoyed was Stella.. I don't know if its because I'm 23 reading young adult books that this book drove me nuts or because the characters, unraveling of the story and the goddamn language used was just frustrating. If I have to read the word "frexing" or "chutz" one more time in another book ever ill burn it. I mean how many times can you over use these words? Argh. Hated hated hated, which is sooo disappointing because I was expecting high things. Sorry Beth Revis, this one just didn't do it for me.. "

    " This book is so refreshingly original and well thought out. I loved the duel main characters of Amy and Eldest and thought both were very well done. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Laury | 1/22/2014

    " Loved the storyline. It was unpredictable, twisted, and very well thought out. It is a wonderful blend of sci-fi, murder mystery, and a hint of romance. Nicely written Especially that opening scene! "
