Waiting on Wednesday (47)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that highlights future releases that we are excitedly anticipating.

Shades of Earth (Across the Universe, #3)By Beth Revis
Publication Date: January 15, 2013

The final book in the  New York Times bestselling trilogy, perfect for fans of Battlestar Galactica and Prometheus!

Amy and Elder have finally left the oppressive walls of the spaceshipGodspeed 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.

    Waiting on Wednesday

  4. I can't wait to get my hands on this one and to see what happens in the end. It sounds great! I hope you enjoy reading it too. Great pick!
    Come check out my WOW post.

  5. I have the first two of these sitting on my bookshelf and haven't read them yet! Hopefully I will soon!

  6. Martina and Ivana - I am very curious to see how it ends. It has potential to be a long running series if Beth Revis chose to go that route.

    Manda, Divergent and BookInHand - These are great intro Sci-fi books. If you alredy read quite a bit of sci-fi, you would definitely still find them entertaining.

    Thanks for stopping by, everyone! I am on my way to your WoW's in just a moment :-)
