Book Two in the Under the Never Sky series
Published January 8th 2013 by ATOM
At the end of Under the Never Sky, Aria and Perry were reunited. Now, when Aria moves to his village, they decide not to tell his people that they are together. The Tides hardly trust this Dweller girl as it is, and Perry hasn’t been their leader for very long, so it seems like the best thing for both of them. With the Aether becoming more dangerous and unpredictable than ever before, the pressure is on Perry to make a decision in regards to whether the village stays where it is, or moves somewhere safer. There are rumours of a place where there is no Aether – the Still Blue – but the only person who seems to know anything about it for sure is Sable – the leader of the Horns tribe and the man who is set to marry Perry’s sister Liv. Roar – Perry’s best mate, who also happens to be in love with Liv – and Aria travel to the far-off village to see if they can learn anything about the Sill Blue from Sable.
In a lot of the young adult series that I’ve read, the second book hasn’t been very good. But Through the Ever Night is actually a strong follow up to Under the Never Sky.
Sometimes when we were travelling with Roar and Aria, I was worried that Veronica Rossi was going to enter the horrible world of young adult love triangles. Thankfully, she did not. A male and a female simply being really close friends – there’s an unexpected and very welcome surprise (Sort of Spoiler: even Perry, who was struggling with Aria’s absence, was in danger of entering a love triangle, but he resisted).
Through the Ever Night was really readable and totally drew me in. I love the world and the characters that Veronica Rossi has created. I can’t wait for the next book to come out.
