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

 
 Shades of Earth (Across the Universe, #3)
 From Goodreads:
 
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


I have to admit that this is one of those stories that took a little while to grow on me.  In fact, I wasn't sure I even liked Amy and Elder until A Million Suns (Across the Universe #2) but once I finished it, I was hooked. I have so many theories running through my head of what's really going on and I can't wait to find out if I'm correct. :)

What's W.O.W?
