    America is a barren landscape of smoldering ashes, devoid of life except for those people still struggling to scratch out some type of existence. Amidst this destruction, a father and his young son walk, always toward the coast, but with no real understanding that circumstances will improve once they arrive. Still, they persevere, and their relationship comes to represent goodness in a world of utter devastation.

    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 that Amy had been hoping for. Amy and Elder must race to uncover who - or what - else is out there if they are to have any hope of saving their struggling colony and building a future together. But as each new discovery brings more danger, Amy and Elder will have to look inward to the very fabric of what makes them human on this, their most harrowing journey yet.

    What would have made Shades of Earth better?

    A more series-faithful plot and a more interesting performance.


    Would you recommend Shades of Earth to your friends? Why or why not?

    I wouldn't...although I loved the first two installments, I found this one dull and out-of-sequence.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    A dull, flat performance.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Shades of Earth?

    I don't know that there are scenes I would cut, but I would definitely make some overall changes.
