Wishing on Wednesday #5: Shades of Earth by Beth Revis

Inspired by “Waiting on” Wednesday hosted by Breaking the Spine and Wishlist Wednesday hosted by Pen to Paper
Wishing on Wednesday is a weekly meme to feature recent and upcoming releases that I’m wishing for!
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.


Why I Want It:

In case you haven’t heard, Across the Universe is spectacular. But it’s nothing compared to A Million Suns. So, if you haven’t read them yet, I suggest you get on that. Anyway, Shades of Earth is bound to be amazing. Every single thing I’ve heard about it guarantees that it’s going to be perfect!!! And I know everyone hates that cover, but it’s grown on me. Who cares about the cover, anyway? The story is marvelous either way!
