Review: Shades of Earth by Beth Revis

Shades  of Earth by Beth Revis

Series: Across The Universe #3
Genre: Young-Adult, Science-Fiction
Publisher: Razorbill
Released: January 15, 2013

Book Synopsis 
Amy and Elder have finally left the oppressive walls of the spaceship Godspeed behind. They're ready to start life afresh--to build a home--on Centauri-Earth, the planet that Amy has traveled 25 trillion miles across the universe to experience.

But this new Earth isn't the paradise Amy had been hoping for. There are giant pterodactyl-like birds, purple flowers with mind-numbing toxins, and mysterious, unexplained ruins that hold more secrets than their stone walls first let on. The biggest secret of all? Godspeed's former passengers aren't alone on this planet. And if they're going to stay, they'll have to fight.

Amy and Elder must race to discover who--or what--else is out there if they are to have any hope of saving their struggling colony and building a future together. They will have to look inward to the very core of what makes them human on this, their most harrowing journey yet. Because if the colony collapses? Then everything they have sacrificed--friends, family, life on Earth--will have been for nothing.

My Thoughts 

Well done! This was an amazing read. Beth Revis did this series justice by putting together an well written world as she ended it.

Shades of earth picks up from where they left off. With Elder and Amy taking the shipborns along with the earthborns to the new world. The twist and turn of this new world had everyone worried for their life. Plot wise A+ work. Specially because this book tied all the lose ends. 

There might be a few triggers that might not suit everyone. Other than that Shades of Earth is definitely a step up from the previous two book. If you are a sci-fi fan Across The Universe is definitely one that needs to be checked out. 

I give this
