The trilogy that began with Across the Universe (2011) and A Million Suns (2012) comes to an explosive conclusion with plenty of suspense and twists. Desperate to live on a planet, Elder and Amy gather terrified people onto a shuttle and land on Centauri-Earth. But this new Earth isn't the paradise Amy had been hoping for because there are giant pterodactyl-like birds, toxic purple flowers and mysterious, unexplained ruins that hold secrets. More troubling is that Godspeed's former passengers aren't alone on this planet and if they are to have any hope of saving their struggling colony and building a future together, Amy and Elder must race to discover who, or what else is out there.
