The final book in the New York Times bestselling trilogy, perfect for fans of Battlestar Galactica and Prometheus!
FUELED BY LIES.
RULED BY CHAOS.
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.

Love this series
I really love the whole series of across the universe. It had all the deal elements a book should have humor, romance, action, suspense, sadness, and some life skills as well.
A beautiful finish 😄
From the beginning, I've loved this book series, so I was hesitant to read the last one. Only because I was afraid the ending might be terrible. Fortunately, Shades of Earth kept me guessing until the very end. I think that anyone who enjoyed Allegiant, (or the entire divergent trilogy) but hated the ending will be a big fan of not only this book but the whole series.
It's hard to read so many book that seem to be the same. Vampires, werewolves, and lot, this book helps diversify the number of books that are already saturating the libraries and stores.
The story itself is amazing and effectively inviting. From page one you are sucked in with the wonder of the unknown. I recommend this book to anyone who likes reading about the "future".
