Shades of Earth: An Across the Universe Novel by Beth Revis


 Shades of Earth is the last book in the, Across the Universe trilogy and it is epic. This series has stood on it's own from other dystopian society ones. The character's, environment and plot are all rather unique. The mystery element is intriguing.

In, Shades of Earth, new character's are introduced and those who have chosen to land are attempting to adjust to life on Sol-Earth. Things are nothing like expected, there is chaos, fighting and endangerment of life.  The, Frozens and those born on godspeed are divided and wary of one another --- and they need to come together more than ever in order to survive.

No one is safe ---- and the body count is high. Sol- Earth is dangerous and there is a traitor amongst them.  This last book really ties up the series and you won't be left disappointed.

Grade: A


Overview: [B&N]

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.
