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.


I didn’t fall in love with Under The Never Sky. I enjoyed it, but it didn’t give me the feels that I was hoping for or that it gave others. I finally decided to pick up Through The Ever Night and see if I was wrong about the first book. And while I enjoyed the second book more it still won’t be one of my favourite series.

I did love the world that Veronica Rossi has created. The dweller vs. tribes. She has created this beautiful, but harsh world where nature is beating down on the Earth and making surviving harder and harder. The Aether storms are getting worse and burning fields of crops, destroying pods.

Aria and Perry’s reunion at the beginning of the book is short lived. They both have their own paths to forge. Perry is now the leader of the Tides and must be responsible for each of his tribe members’ lives. Perry has a lot of trials to overcome. His land is burning with each Aether storm, his tribe is starving, and they don’t trust him to make the right choices. He is still impetuous and jumps into action before thinking things through. This further alienates him from some of his tribe as they don’t see him as a leader, but a reckless kid. While Perry is dealing with his tribe, Aria takes off with Roar to find the Still Blue.

The author created the perfect balance between action/adventure and the storyline. I am going to read the third book as I want to find out how the series will end, but overall the book just didn’t blow me away.

My Rating:

3 and a half stars
