Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights an upcoming release we are greatly anticipating.
My pick this week:
Shades of Earth - Across the Universe #3
by Beth Revis
Publication Date: January 15th, 2013
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.
