Shades of Earth is the finale to the Across the Universe series. Amy, Elder & some of the residents of Godspeed have finally left the spaceship and are on there way to Centauri-Earth. They hope to colonize the planet and make it their new home but probes that were sent out to scope the planet out, all caution that danger awaits so they aren't exactly sure what's in store for them. They are determined though to root out whatever danger lies on the planet but it comes at pretty high cost.
So this wasn't the best finale I've ever read but it was ok. I figured out who the "villian" was and who the actual "inhabitants" of Centauri-Earth were very early on so I think that took some of the enjoyment out of it for me. It was all just a little too predictable and none of the characters were very likeable either. I enjoyed the overall setting, the traveling on the spaceships and the exploration of the planet really most of all.
