Shades of Earth (Book 3 in the Across the Universe Trilogy) by Beth Revis

Published by Penguin Group

A review by John Irvin


“I’ve heard that when you’re in a life-and-death situation, like a car accident or a gunfight, all your senses shoot up to almost superhuman level, everything slows down, and you’re hyper-aware of what’s happening around you. As the shuttle careens toward the earth, the exact opposite is true for me.” –Amy

            Third and final installment into the Across the Universe trilogy—finally answers have been found. Finally they’ve made it to Centauri Earth. Finally they can leave the ship and build a home.

            But, new surprises meet Elder and Amy. From poisonous flowers to monstrous, man-eating birds, this new planet is not without its danger. But what intrigues our two heroes more are the ruins. Who built them? Is this really Centauri Earth? Are Godspeed’s passengers the only people here or are they not alone?

            With all the suspenseful intrigue and death-defying resistance, can Elder and Amy finally find a peaceful moment to build their home together? Is their love enough to hold them together amidst these new threats?

            Following in the footsteps of her previous two books, Beth Revis pulls through with a satisfying action-packed young adult science fiction drama. More deep thoughts are pulled to the surface that cause you to stop and think. But you’ll keep turning the page as I did all those late nights.

            If you want to read an ending that will at first make you want to jump out of your chair and scream then breath in relief, this work meets those standards. When I closed the book after finishing, I felt both content and happy but also like I’d just had to say goodbye to my two friends. Thinking about it now, I miss them.

            So, take my recommendation and click this link to go buy it: SHADES OF EARTH.
