SHADES OF EARTH
Revis totally kills it in her Across the Universe trilogy ender, taking her plot-twisting mania to entirely new levels. Readers will never know what’s coming next as Revis completely goes for broke. There are so many layers and themes here amongst the shocking twists, beware of whiplash. It’s super awesome.
Elder, Amy and some of the passengers from Godspeed are ready to land on Centauri-Earth. After a rocky landing, Amy rushes to awaken the frozens, including her parents, while Elder tries to deal with the foretold monsters outside. Amy’s father takes command, butting heads with Elder as relations between the two groups grow strained. But they must learn to work together — Centauri-Earth is a dangerous place.
