Book Review: Into the Still Blue (Under the Never Sky #3)

Standard

Author: Veronica Rossi

Genre: YA

Summary: The earth-shattering conclusion to Veronica Rossi’s “masterpiece” Under the Never Sky trilogy and sequel to the New York Times bestsellingThrough the Ever Night (Examiner.com).

Their love and their leadership have been tested. Now it’s time for Perry and Aria to unite the Dwellers and the Outsiders in one last desperate attempt to bring balance to their world.

The race to the Still Blue has reached a stalemate. Aria and Perry are determined to find this last safe-haven from the Aether storms before Sable and Hess do-and they are just as determined to stay together.

Meanwhile, time is running out to rescue Cinder, who was abducted by Hess and Sable for his unique abilities. And when Roar returns to camp, he is so furious with Perry that he won’t even look at him, and Perry begins to feel like they have already lost.

Out of options, Perry and Aria assemble a team to mount an impossible rescue mission-because Cinder isn’t just the key to unlocking the Still Blue and their only hope for survival, he’s also their friend. And in a dying world, the bonds between people are what matter most.

In this final book in her stunning Under the Never Sky trilogy, Veronica Rossi raises the stakes to their absolute limit and brings her epic love story to an unforgettable close.

Review: Rossi is great with tension! 

Of course, this is the last book in a trilogy, so naturally it is full of tension. But Rossi doesn’t leave you there. She keeps the tension high with Roar and how he’s dealing with what happened (I refuse to be spoilery for those who aren’t up to speed!) 

She also throws in a lot of tension with Aria and her health (again, non-spoilery!)

Overall, this book was nothing but suspense and tension. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time! Right up until the last page!

Recommendation: READ!! Read NOW!

Book Review: Through the Ever Night

Standard

Author: Veronica Rossi

Genre: YA/Dystopian

Summary: It’s been months since Aria last saw Perry. Months since Perry was named Blood Lord of the Tides, and Aria was charged with an impossible mission. Now, finally, they are about to be reunited. But their reunion is far from perfect. The Tides don’t take kindly to Aria, a former Dweller. And with the worsening Aether storms threatening the tribe’s precarious existence, Aria begins to fear that leaving Perry behind might be the only way to save them both. Threatened by false friends, hidden enemies, and powerful temptations, Aria and Perry wonder,Can their love survive through the ever night? In this second book in her spellbinding Under the Never Sky trilogy, Veronica Rossi combines fantasy and dystopian elements to create a captivating love story as perilous as it is unforgettable.

Review: Let me just say, I am obsessed with this trilogy. Obsessed. I’m considering rereading these first two (plus the Roar and Liv novella) over and over until the last book comes out.

Rossi has done an excellent job making me feel like I know Perry and Aria inside and out. And Roar, thanks to the novella. Rossi is great at building a character through their emotion, making them 100% real, unique, and consistent. They surprise me without ever veering from “who they are”. 

The arc of each character, even the secondary characters, from the first book is completely solidified in this second book. I’m so looking forward to seeing the end of the arc in the last book.

Book Review: Under the Never Sky

Standard

Author: Veronica Rossi

Genre: YA

Summary: WORLDS KEPT THEM APART.

DESTINY BROUGHT THEM TOGETHER.

Aria has lived her whole life in the protected dome of Reverie. Her entire world confined to its spaces, she’s never thought to dream of what lies beyond its doors. So when her mother goes missing, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland long enough to find her are slim.

Then Aria meets an outsider named Perry. He’s searching for someone too. He’s also wild – a savage – but might be her best hope at staying alive.

If they can survive, they are each other’s best hope for finding answers.

Review: Loved it! I really liked the dual MC’s. It helped to show every side of this dystopian world. Dual MC’s has become a favorite of mine for this very reason and Veronica nailed it!

The character arc of Aria (the female MC) was perfect. I liked that she was weak in the beginning of the story and I was able to move with her as she found her strength. Likewise, I was surprised by Perry’s (the male MC) arc. He was always strong, even to the end, but his arc was a lot more emotional and internal. 

Also, best cliffhanger since Catching Fire!
