Launching SHADES OF EARTH by Beth Revis


This week we're celebrating the launch of the final book in Beth Revis' New York Times bestselling trilogy:  SHADES OF EARTH.

Summary:


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 that Amy had been hoping for. Amy and Elder must race to uncover who–or what–else is out there if they are to have any hope of saving their struggling colony and building a future together.

But as each new discovery brings more danger, Amy and Elder will have to look inward to the very fabric 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 meaningless.

What critics are saying:

“A tense and delicious ride — one that satisfyingly brings the series full circle.”
 –The Examiner

“[Revis has a gift] as a propulsive storyteller with a knack for jarring surprises and raising the stakes.” –Booklist, Dec. 1, 2012

“[Shades of Earth] brings it home on a planet far from home.”
–Kirkus, Dec. 1, 2012

I want to read this so so so so bad. Thank you for sharing your review. I would recommend Darren Shan's books. I loved the Cirque Du Freak! It was a really great read!
