Shades of earth by Beth Revis

Shades of earth
Series: Across the universe #3
Author: Beth Revis
Pages: 369
Goodreads AVG Rating: 4.22
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.


10 Reasons why I loved Shades of earth

1.    The first chapter was awesomeness

2.    Even though Amy was always annoying and childish this time she finally grows up and starts thinking the way she must’ve since the beginning

3.    Elder was a great leader. So good, so strong.

4.    The writing was so wonderfully well describing. It was like being part of the world of Amy and Elder. I could understand everything I could practically pictured every little detail.

5.    The aliens. Oh man! It was unexpected. Though, sometimes I had that vague feeling of wisdom, I never thought it could be possible. And then, BANG! The WOW factor never disappointed.

6.    The language: Beth Revis always writes smart words, smart terms, smart phrases, and smart conversations. This time wasn’t the exception.  It felt like it was reading real words from someone that was there, in Centauri Earth!

7.    The mind-blowing action never stopped. Each chapter (like a good friend said) was like a mini cliffhanger. I enjoyed the double POVs and show the actions goes from Amy to Elder and the other way around.

8.    The characters. Like I said, I didn’t like Amy when I started this series, but all the losses, and the bad things that happened to her, makes her stronger, more mature and selfless. Elder was a lovely sweetheart like always, there’s nothing I don’t like about him! Kit, Amy’s parents, even Chris, I loved every old and new character in this book.

9.    The romance. Well, they never said the famous 3 words but it was damn cute! Of course, the romance was stronger and purer and sweeter on Elder’s side, but Amy’s feelings were obvious and as beautiful as his!

And this is how every series must to end. Just like Soul Screamers, TID, Dilirium, etc. There must be sacrifices, and losses, and and a lot of tears. An emotional rollercoaster. This is the kind of ending I, every reader deserve!!
