How did I get it?:
I received it as a present from a friend!
Aria has struggled to build a life for herself outside Reverie. It hasn’t be easy adjusting to life in the wilderness but that struggle has been worth it with Perry by her side.
But Perry has other challenges. His people are looking to him for answers. Answers about what happened to his nephew and what’s happening to their world. And they don’t trust the priviledged Aria, one of the enemy, in their midst.
Soon he’ll be forced to chose between the tribe that looks to him for leadership and the girl that looks to him for love.
It’s been a while since I read Under The Never Sky, but beginning Through The Ever Night it feels like I haven’t been away from that world for long. The story does pick up a few months since Aria and Perry have seen each other. Aria has been forced to find the Still Blue and Perry has been leading the Tides through a horrible Winter. Perry and Aria finally reunity although they pretend to be acquaintances, they have to do this as the Tides don’t trust Aria as she’s half dweller. Aria still needs to find the Still Blue, and Perry is doubting himself.
I thought Through The Ever Night was a strong sequel to Under The Never Sky. The story is particularly intriguing. I liked seeing more of the rich, imaginative world that Veronica Rossi has created. I really thought the characters Perry, Aria and Roar were much better developed than in the first book. The only thing that I could really fault is that there wasn’t enough of Perry and Aria together. I love them together and they were mainly separated in this instalment. I thought Aria was a much more stronger character, despite what she’s been through. Perry had also matured, he seemed a softer person, but stronger at the same time.
Veronica Rossi’s writing seems stronger than in Under The Never Sky. I can’t wait to read Into The Still Blue to see how this series ends.
“Love was like the waves in the sea, gentle and good sometimes, rough and terrible at others, but that it was endless and stronger than the sky and earth and everything in between.”
