Trilogy: Two thirds of the trilogy were very good, particularly book 1--Across the Universe. Book 2 - A Million Suns--was also a solid read. The key element to these books was the strangely attractive weird society that had evolved on Godspeed. This society and Amy's role in it was a goldmine that the author did a good job tapping into. Unfortunately, all of this is mostly gone in book 3 when the story shifts to Centauri-Earth, and for me the story flatlines on the planet. The Amy-Elder romance is pretty good and it holds up through the series, but I needed more than this. So, ultimately, IMO, book 3 drags down what was otherwise a good trilogy.
Alas, all good things must come to an end and what an ending it is. Beth Revis is one author who is not afraid to kill and if you are surprised by this statement, you must not have read any of her books yet. She's been a killing machine since the first book but the third book is more crucial because there are going to be characters you like that may not make it out alive. (Though, there are deaths prior to this book that I know broke our hearts...prepare for them to be broken all over again)
Not only is there lots of death in Shades of Earth but there are aliens and...dinosaurs? Yes. You read that correctly. Oh, also - a new guy, whose around twenty named Chris with killer blue eyes. Do I sniff a possible love triangle? Impossible. Who would introduce a possible love triangle in the last book of a series?Read more ›
First of all, the romance kind of drives me nuts in this entire series, but it really bombs in this book. Why can Amy flirt with another guy and it be completely excused? She never apologizes, Elder never really finds out, and the whole thing leaves me feeling (again) like Amy doesn't really care for Elder... not that much. Because of this, I feel there is no chemistry between them, no real love. I understand they don't want each other to die, and they want each other around. But I would want my best friend, or even a good friend around too, on a new planet, and I would care what happened to them. That's how believable their romance was to me.
Secondly, there was no real closure with the "bad guy," whom I actually thought was a stronger character than Elder. Weird. He and Amy just go in circles about how he tried to do good but Amy will never forgive him, back and forth, back and forth. I was expecting some kind of peace between them or that something would happen to enable them to be friends again, something. It all seemed unnecessary. Either make us hate the guy or love the guy. I was confused.
Thirdly, I didn't understand the relationship between Amy and her parents. I thought, from the way she was constantly thinking about them while they were frozen, that they had this amazing unity as a family. Instead, I felt that she and her dad were just constantly fighting, that she didn't really know him. *Spoiler alert* Then he dies, and there's no closure between them--no reconciliation, no chance for him to redeem himself.Read more ›
