Series: Under the Never Sky #2
Rating: 4 of 5 stars
It’s been months since Aria learned of her mother’s death.
Months since Perry became Blood Lord of the Tides, and months since Aria last saw him.
Now Aria and Perry are about to be reunited. It’s a moment they’ve been longing for with countless expectations. And it’s a moment that lives up to all of them. At least, at first.
Then it slips away. The Tides don’t take kindly to former Dwellers like Aria. And the tribe is swirling out of Perry’s control. With the Aether storms worsening every day, the only remaining hope for peace and safety is the Still Blue. But does this haven truly exist?
Threatened by false friends 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 sci-fi elements to create a captivating adventure-and a love story as perilous as it is unforgettable.
This book. This book. This book does everything right. Every single little thing. It’s almost perfect. Seriously, I really can’t think of anything I’d want Veronica Rossi to change about this book.
It started out with Aria and Perry’s reunion after months of being separated, and they have to hide the love between them because Aria, being an Outsider, won’t be trusted or accepted among the tribe Perry has become the Blood Lord of, the Tides. In Perry’s words, they have to “their greatest strength and [hide] it like a weakness.”
And that’s prolly the thing I love about this series the most–the solidarity that Aria and Perry share is in perfect step, in perfect tune, with their story. Their romance is so backgrounded that it’s prolly the one thing I WOULD want to see different with them–their time together; they’re ALWAYS split apart–but I simply couldn’t have that because I know that the books wouldn’t be the same otherwise. However, despite the lesser appearance of their relationship, it’s still a stronghold for them that drives them each to greatness. I mean, how is that not the PERFECT balance of awesome and amazing?
Rossi, you’re my hero.
There are so many things I could say about this book that I really can’t even say anything. It was the sweetest, swiftest, action-filledest thing I’ve laid eyes on in a long time and it was basically the most wonderful thing I’ll behold until the sequel to Seraphina comes out.
I’m hoping, hoping and praying, that Into the Still Blue takes what was perfect about Through the Ever Night and compounds on it the way Through the Ever Night did with Under the Never Sky. Book 1 was 3 stars. Book 2 earned 4. I’m crossing my fingers Book 3 lives up to 5 because I really, REALLY wanna add this series to my “favorites” shelf. Badz.
Seriously. Just read it.
