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 really liked the first book! The second book was a bit of a disappointed. Book three here was better however (but not anywhere near as good as book one.)
I know this is teen/YA so I've kept that in mind when listening to it. It's a bit hard for me to review because of that. For me... all-in-all I liked the series; but there were just some things that were too silly.
As I said in my review of "A Million Suns" the tone of the series seemed to change starting with book 2. I wished these final two books followed the tone of the first book which wasn't as silly - but again... I know the series isn't geared towards middle aged men :)
So for the teen/YA readers I think you will really like this series. For you older readers, the story is good, you just have to remember that it is teen/YA.
These are the same narrators as book two and I liked the performances a lot more in this book, especially the male narrator. His delivery of Elder was very flat in book 2. It was a little better in book 3 and his other voices were great. I really liked his Lt.Colonel Martin.
