The final book in the trilogy by New York Times bestselling author Beth Revis!

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. Because if the colony collapses? Then everything they have sacrificed--friends, family, life on Earth--will have been meaningless.

I totally, totally HATE their concept for the new covers! I love Beth and this series but why change a gorgeous cover for something this hideous? I seriously HATE it! But I seriously LOVE the story, world building, setting, premise, characters, everything! (except these frexing covers) At this point, I am still waiting for A Million Sun's paperback edition so I could purchase it (am really not a fan of hard backs) and definitely drooling over this finale! I just totally HATE its cover! HAHA

What are your picks this week?
