A world-defying love is put to the ultimate test in the heart-stopping sequel to Veronica Rossi's "masterpiece," Under the Never Sky. (Examiner.com)
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.
I freaking loved this book so much it hurts! I loved Under the Never Sky but I am completely obsessed with Through the Ever Night! Why you ask? Well it’s quite simple, this book had so much of Roar in it! I love Perry and Aria but whenever Roar is in a scene I almost forget they exist. And he sings in this one part and even though I can’t hear it; I can imagine his beautiful, soulful voice... even when singing a ridiculous song! Crap went off on a tangent there sorry. Oh and we get to meet Liv in this book too and I will admit I hated her for so many reasons (Roar, *cough* Roar). But she is an awesome character!
Ok so onto the story. Veronica has done it again! She has written a vividly beautiful but violent world where if the weather doesn’t kill you the people may. And I was on the edge of my seat reading almost the whole thing! Oh and Veronica threw in so many WTF moments I thought I may throw the book! But I didn’t, I know some people who did though lol. Oh and yes people it’s told in both Aria and Perry’s POV’s again as well. So never fear Perry fans you’ll get a ton of him! And OMFG the ending was so awesome I am dying to get my hands on book 3 Into the Still Blue!
Ok so this wouldn't be a Jaime review without a Roar scene to share with you so here goes!!! Aria is speaking to him telepathically.
She reached out and rested her hand on Roar’s forearm. For some reason, this seemed easier. Maybe it took less courage to just let herself think than to speak her worries aloud.
‘What if this was a sign? Maybe I’m not supposed to be an Outsider.’
He surprised her by taking her hand and threading his fingers through hers. “You already are an Outsider. You fit everywhere. You just don’t see it yet.”
She stared at their hands. He’d never done that before.
Roar gave her a droll look. “It’s just odd having you lay your hand on my arm all the time,” he said, responding to her thoughts.
‘Yes, but this feels intimate. Don’t you think it does? I don’t mean that I think we’re being too intimate. I guess I do. Roar, sometimes it’s really hard to get used to this.’
Roar flashed a grin. “Aria, this isn't intimate. If I were being intimate with you, trust me, you’d know.”
She rolled her eyes. ‘Next time you say something like that, you should toss a red rose and then leave with a swish of your cape.’
He gazed off like he was imagining it. “I could do that.”
They fell into silence, and she realized how comforting it felt being connected to him this way.
“Good,” Roar said. “That’s the idea.”
I really hope there’s a trailer for this one because I loved the one for UtNS! Haven’t seen that one yet? Here ya go! :D
