Book Review: Shades of Earth - Beth Revis

Shades of Earth (Across the Universe, #3)
Amy and Elder have finally left the oppressive walls of the spaceship Godspeed behind.  They're ready to start life afresh--to buidl 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 led 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.


4/5 stars (really liked it)
This is the conclusion to her series and I thought it was a great conclusion.  Many questions that I had from previous books were answered.  This book contained suspense and mystery.  There were some parts that were predictable but some parts that surprised me.  We also finally get to meed Amy's parents and I did not really like them.  I don't think their characters were developed enough for me to really care about them.  My favorite part was the last two pages of the book.
