It's been months since Aria learned of her mother's death.Andye's review of Book #1
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.
Amy's review of Book #1
At a Glance:
Andye: There is rarely a time where I would say that I loved the sequel even more than the first book, but this would be that time. Through the Ever Night was full of action, romance, betrayal, questions, disasters and heart-breaking love. This book was not just a "filler," it was an adventure. And I loved every single minute of it.
Amy: I was really excited about Aria and Peregrine's reunion at the beginning of Through The Ever Night, the sequel for Under The Never Sky. Aria joins Perry and the Tides, she begins to live with the tribe. The book focuses a lot on Roar and Aria trying to rescue Liv, and also to find exactly where the Still Blue is, or if it even exists. I absolutely love that it's told from both Aria and Perry's point of view, just like the first.
The audiobook was amazing. The male reader/narrator Micheal Goldstrom (Variant & Feedback by Robison Wells, A Confusion of Princes by Garth Nix) was very good. When he would read a female part it sounded very believable. Goldstrom did not have to grown on me, I enjoyed his voice from the beginning.
Amy: I love the cover. I like looking at Perry, the first book was Aria. So this was very fitting.
Andye: I like the cover, but it doesn't quite fit for me. Perry looks a little too put together to be a "savage" who lives life in the treacherous Outside.
Amy: Oh the perfect amount of action. I absolutely loved the highs in this book. I was engrossed.
Andye: Seriously, it was non-stop. There wasn't a boring moment in this book....but there were a few moments that were kind-of tough to swallow. It was seriously fantastic!
Amy: Yes romance. Aria and Perry had some steamy moments. However, they were not the only couple in this book that got a little steamy. Through The Ever Night really hit the spot, in the romantic department!
Andye: I loved how the romance was kept fresh and alive in this book! It's crazy what doubt can do to a pair of insecure people. Perry and Aria just broke my heart. And speaking of a broken heart.....*sigh*
Andye: It's hard to remember the spoiled dainty girl that began this journey when you see what Aria has become. She is fearless and relentless. I love her loyalty, and the fierce way she loves, not only Perry, but also Roar, Liv, Talon and all of her friends. You've come a long way, Aria!
Amy: Aria! She has it going on. She has grown so much since Under The Never Sky, she's super tough. I also have to mention Liv (Perry's sister), she has some good moments.
Amy: Ummm Perry and Roar, in such different ways. Perry is the tribe's leader now and has to make difficult decisions. Roar wants to save the love of his life, and he goes through hell and back to make that happen.
Andye: What more is there to say? Perry is the combination of all the book crushes I've ever had.
Favorite Supporting Character:
Amy: Roar, he was just awesome, almost equally as sexy as Perry :)
Andye: Yeah, I don't think there would be one person who could read this book and not fall in love with Roar. If anyone could have a chance at stealing Perry's thunder, it would be Roar.
Something I loved:
Amy: Aria and Perry. Roar and Liv. The action. The romance. The setting. The betrayal. Everything.
Andye: Every moment of this book. There was not a single solitary point that I was bored.
Something(s) I hated:
Amy: That it ended. I seriously could have gone straight to the next book, I was so hungry for more.
Andye: Ok, there was this one moment, where I got really, really mad. Does that count? (PERRY!! YOU IDIOT!)
Amy: Oh my goodness, I nearly forgot about that moment, I seriously was listening to it with bug-eyes popping out of my head, I was screaming NOoooo.
Amy: Yes. Yes. Yes. I loved the ending, but it was hard to let it go.
Andye: There is a cliffhanger, but this book definitely felt like it had some resolution too. I was happy with it!
Would I recommend it?
Amy: What do you think?
Andye: No, Perry is mine, back off.
Did my friends like it?
Amy: Andye loved it!
Andye: Amy loved it!
Will I buy/keep it?
Andye: Yes, most assuredly. Keeping the ARC, buying the book, and getting the audio. Yes, it is that good, don't raise your eyebrow at me.
