Sunday Sequels (63)

Sunday sequels is my own meme. Every Sunday, I post covers, news, or other stuff about sequels in popular series.

Shades of Earth (Across the Universe #3) by Beth Revis
January 15, 2013
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. (taken from

Scarlet (The Lumar Chronicles #2) by Marissa Meyer
February 5, 2013
Book two, Scarlet, is based on Little Red Riding Hood. It continues Cinder’s story as she attempts to escape Queen Levana’s vengeance and learn more about her past. The story also introduces readers to Scarlet, a girl living in southern France whose grandmother has mysteriously disappeared. In order to find her, Scarlet seeks the help of Wolf, a street fighter with more than a few mysteries of his own. (taken from

Evergreen (Mer Tales #2) by Brenda Pandos by Julianna Baggott
February 19, 2013
A kingdom on the brink of war. A king on the fringes of insanity. A family running for their lives.

Ash and Fin’s only desire is to be together and dive into their happily ever after, though their conflicting worlds work to pull them apart. Neither is ready to convert to the other’s life: become a human or a mer. Little do they know that somewhere in Natatoria a secret holds the fine fabric of everyone’s lives together. If the truth is discovered, Ash and Fin will no longer have the luxury of waiting. They’ll be forced to choose. But will it be for loyalty or love? Or will someone else make the choice for them if they can’t decide?

Enter the watery world of treachery, greed, and the binding mer kiss as the story continues with Evergreen, book two of Mer Tales. (taken from

While all of these sequels sound promising, I have to admit that I hate the cover for Shades of Earth. Compared to the first two covers in the Across the Universe series, it's just plain ugly. Am I the only one who thinks that?
