Carina’s Books: Review: Shades of Earth by Beth Revis

Even though my rating has been hovering somewhere around the middle of the scale on these books, I think I can finally say that I am ready to give this series a thumbs up.

There are only two places that are still so steeped in mystery that I devour stories about them with wild excitement: Amy was acting rather childish in the beginning and she evens mentions how childish she was bdth a few times. This review kind of makes it sound like I didn’t love this recis, but believe me, I did.

This was a great ending to the series!! Full review to come. How could Penguin do this? The biggest secret of all? Amy’s dad is an asshole. In my opinion this book would have been so much better without that last chapter, because I thought it wasn’t necessary.

Shades of Earth by Beth Revis | : Books

Everything that we learned that was being kept a secret from us is brought to light in this book, and when you find out what they are, your jaw will fall open. We really don’t get to know Amy’s mom much because Revis really focuses on Amy’s Dad instead. It’s not often we get to experience an entirely new planet, and it was fun to try that in this novel.


They’re on a planet that’s literally alien to them. Beth Revis could write another trilogy or other books, further expanding, further developing, further exploring the entirety of Centauri-Earth.

I used to like him more. I guess I have to talk about Elder now too?

However I just didn’t really care for any of the characters or the romance plot line. It takes all of your patience and that of the entire population of the world to get to the end of the third book doesn’t mean quadrilogies are any better; and I don’t even want to think about Mortal Instruments.

I truly enjoyed this. On that front, I think Ms Revis finally delivered the character development I’ve been wanting from the start in Shades of Earth and she served it up alongside fast-paced action, well-placed twists and a nice dose of gore. Beth Revis grew up in the Appalachian Mountains with a cemetery in her backyard, which is probably why she prefers her stories to be dark and full of twists. I try to squelch the jealous rage that’s growing in my heart.

Shades of Earth

View all 3 comments. Between saying goodbye and death. I couldn’t get a grip on it. But I do admit rrvis I enjoyed the concept and the plot, and I thought it all ended nicely until that very final chapter that I thought was a bit too cheesy. It was so freaking ridiculously liberal.

Oh and btw, i adored it that the book wasn’t all about the romance between the two of them you can say though that there was mini love triangle. Remember when I asked for maybe just a little more peril for this final book in my last review? The author did a wonderful and fantastic job at creating and explaining the world to the reader, and all of the secrets and betrayals that occurred in this new world was brilliant.

I loved seeing these new emotions pulled from him and how he handled himself I loved watching all the little clues fall into the bigger mystery and story. Her fiery barrages of surprises, twists and turns, smouldered that innocence to ash. Elder’s grip on me is so tight, though, that he easily lifts me from the ground, spinning in a slow circle, his laughter weaving in between raindrops to splash against my heart.


But be that as it may, I do not by any means hate this series, but it’s not one of my favorites either. Some of the characters in this book were a bit cliche especially Amy’s Dad and Chris. Jun 17, Braiden rated it it was amazing Shelves: Whether she moves away from sci-fi or stays within the genre, I have high hopes that I’ll love it. However, I can’t forget the “love-triangle” maybe it wasn’t a major event but it was kinda useless. Dos Soles – Agosto 1 7 Aug 01, Seriously though, Revis does this excellent job of creating Godspeed and the atmosphere.

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.

This book was everything the others were not-it had angst. But i still like you: The ship – what did I say about Beth Revis being a skilled shuttle designer?

Those original AtU covers are my favorite covers in the entire world. Wow I’m still reeling And no one stepped up to fill this role except for Amy’s dad.

Mainly the absolutely unbearable characters and romance. I really wanted Elder to take charge and act like a true leader.

Even with that cheesefest ending.
