Worlds kept them apart.
Destiny brought them together.
Outside the dome of Reverie, Aria and Perry are struggling to keep their people from tearing each other apart. Their situation is desperate, and with the Aether storms worsening time is running out for them to rescue Cinder from Hess and Sable.
Cinder is both the key to unlock the Still Blue and their only hope for survival, so Aria and Perry assemble an unlikely team to attempt a daring rescue mission. They know that in a dying world, the bond of friendship is what matters most.
I have been enjoying the Under The Never Sky series, so I was looking forward to reading this book. It’s not necessarily the best series out there, but it’s lighter than most dystopian series. I find it incredibly easy to read. Into The Still Blue is the last book in the trilogy. I thought it was good, but I wasn’t particularly wowed by it either way. I don’t see it as a stand out final book.
Into The Still Blue is still a good conclusion to the series. Everything is wrapped up quite nicely and I wasn’t left feeling emotional in any way. I wasn’t angry, confused, blown away or excited. It just mulled along nicely and finished neatly. There was a nice amount of romance and action. A perfect balance.
What I find enjoyable about this particular series is that it doesn’t take me long to get into it. It doesn’t matter how long it’s been since I’ve read the previous book, I can easily slip into that world again. The characters are incredibly easy to connect to. I liked the interactions between Aria and Perry. They have great chemistry and are very believable as a couple. I absolutely adored Roar in this particular book. He’s so likeable. I could easily sympathise with him.
Into The Still Blue did drag at times for me, and this is why I think it wasn’t an epic end to the series. It’s enjoyable enough and a solid dystopian read.
