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 each new discovery brings more danger. And if their colony collapses then everything they have sacrificed--friends, family, life on Earth--will have been meaningless...
I didn't know what to expect from Revis in this book since she seems to pull something completely unpredictable out of the bag every time. Though what I did know was that this book was going to be absolutely amazing. And guess what? It was.
In A Million Suns, Amy and Elder discover that they are already in orbit of Centauri-Earth. I know, who saw THAT one coming? Now in Shades of Earth, they are planning to land. But the dangers down on the new earth may not be worth the effort as they find out more and more about what else is inhabiting it.
I've loved the trilogy since the very beginning, and the books have only got better along the way! Revis pulls out all the stops to deliver and unforgettable conclusion with so many plot twists that it'll blow your mind.
I loved Amy and Elder's relationship. In the midst of trying to work out the new planet, the two still have a few precious stolen moments together, which I thought was a really nice touch. With all the confustion around them, it's nice to know there's something stable and real between them.
There were so many twists and turns and surprises and shocks that I could never seem to put the book down. Shades of Earth is the conclusion that many have been dying for, and more. You won't be expecting what Revis has got planned!
