"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.



My Thoughts:
I am very sad to see this series come to an end. But it has been an awesome ride into space and onto Centauri- Earth with Amy and Elder. I've enjoyed sharing all their highs and lows together. Learning what the faced to get to the new planet, all the many challenges along the way. Losing people that mattered to them. All and all I'm so glad to have read this series. If you haven't read you really need to.

Beth thank you so much for creating this amazing world. And for giving us this amazing spacey world!!

5/5 stars, Happy Reading, Ashley

    6. Divergent series=amazing :D I really liked Incarnate and the sequel that was released in the past month or so. I get a lot of my books from my library :) I hope you get to finish it! The Selection is a really great book and I hope you get to read it!
