In Across The Universe, which goes on sale today, Amy goes into cryogenic sleep for the 300-year journey to another planet, aboard the vast spaceship Godspeed. But 50 years before the ship is supposed to land, someone disconnects Amy's cryo chamber and she nearly dies. She finds herself trapped in a giant ship where the other awake passengers have given up all control to a tyrant named Eldest and his rebellious teenage son, Elder. Amy has to decide whether to trust Elder — and she has to uncover the secrets of the ship, before whoever tried to kill her tries a second time.

Here are the first 111 pages of the novel, which we'll keep up on the site until 11:11 PM, EST (or 8:11 PST).Sadly, we've had to remove those pages now. Thanks for checking them out!

I read through the preview. That was pretty good and I am VERY picky with my Sci-Fi. I am going to do some checking, but I hope this is not another book that is not available in print form for months and months. If so I will probably unplug a few people too.

That's why I didn't get any books for xmas this year and am starved for reading material. All the books I wanted were Kindle exclusives and the one I really wanted wont be in print form until after April!
