Summary: 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.My Favorite Lines:
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.
“Love is a rebellious bird that nobody can tame.”
“He brought a sense of rightness. She felt it every moment she spent with him. Even the wrong ones. Even the painful ones, like now.”Why I Loved It: If you saw my post last week, you know just how excited I was to get this book! You can see that here. Veronica Rossi won my heart in Under the Never Sky. It was such an incredible book. Rumor had it that the sequel was just as good. I was begging God that the book wouldn't suck. It was so incredibly important that Under the Never Sky stayed untainted. I would say that the sequel actually ended up being better. Entering the world of Aether swirling in the sky, of Tides and other Outsiders and Dwellers, and of the constant drive for survival was so very welcome.
Veronica Rossi is a brilliant writer and especially when it comes to her characters. Reading this book was like visiting some really good friends again. Aria has developed so much in the gap between the last book and this one. Perry is now the Blood Lord of the Tides. He has grown into someone even braver and stronger and more devoted to the people he had sworn to protect. They both have the fate of other people on their hands. Such a responsibility has such an impact on their relationship. It's not just about them anymore. There is so much more on the line.
For those who loved Under the Never Sky, the second book gives you more insight into some other characters. Throughout this book, I got to know Roar so much better. Roar was one of my favorite characters in the first book, and I enjoyed getting to know his handsome self. You start to understand his connection to Liv (Perry's sister) so much more, and she pops up in this book too. Now I feel I have to read the novella Ms. Rossi wrote about Liv and Roar.
There are really no words to truly explain why the book was so awesome. It just was. Ms. Rossi knows how to spin a story and trap you in the book. Everyone. Read It. Love It.
Please enjoy the book trailer too! Just in case I haven't convinced you.
