Review: Shades of Earth, by Beth Revis

Shades of Earth (Across the Universe, #3)

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 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.


My Rating: 2/5 stars
DNF (Did Not Finish)

I'm not even gonna bother to write a full and thorough review. Either I am just not in the mood for this book, or this book is actually as bad as I believe it to be, but either way, I'll probably attempt to finish this when I have absolutely no books to read and I have nothing better to do.

Although I was crazy about the first one and second book, this book did not satisfy me. It draaaaaaaged to the point of utmost boredom, and I was making excuses just so I would not read this book. I mean, when I would rather do my homework than read this book, that's a pretty bad sign in and of itself.

Amy was really annoying in this. I disliked her very much. But I liked Elder, who seemed to be the only one that actually had a brain.

Summary: NO ME GUSTA.


  1. Shame you DNFed this, I heard so many great things. I haven't started the series but I do own the first two...

    1. I feel like I didn't give this one a fair chance. I'll probably get back to it... someday. But the first two are awesome, I loved them!
