Deidra Reviews Into the Still Blue

Author: Veronica Rossi 
Publisher: HarperTeen
Release Date: 28 January 2014
Series: Under the Never Sky #3
Source: Edelweiss 
Summary: The earth-shattering conclusion to Veronica Rossi's "masterpiece" Under the Never Sky trilogy and sequel to the New York Times bestselling Through the Ever Night. Their love and their leadership have been tested. Now it's time for Perry and Aria to unite the Dwellers and the Outsiders in one last desperate attempt to bring balance to their world.

The race to the Still Blue has reached a stalemate. Aria and Perry are determined to find this last safe-haven from the Aether storms before Sable and Hess do-and they are just as determined to stay together.

Meanwhile, time is running out to rescue Cinder, who was abducted by Hess and Sable for his unique abilities. And when Roar returns to camp, he is so furious with Perry that he won't even look at him, and Perry begins to feel like they have already lost.

Out of options, Perry and Aria assemble a team to mount an impossible rescue mission-because Cinder isn't just the key to unlocking the Still Blue and their only hope for survival, he's also their friend. And in a dying world, the bonds between people are what matter most.

In this final book in her stunning Under the Never Sky trilogy, Veronica Rossi raises the stakes to their absolute limit and brings her epic love story to an unforgettable close.
There were lots of lines that I loved, but due to the fact that over Christmas, I made the switch from my Nook to a beautiful Kindle Fire HDX, I don't have my notes and highlights anymore.  But considering the writing is Veronica Rossi, the writing was as beautiful as always!

I got this book awhile ago, and I was so excited.  But then I put off reading it... and then some more time.. and then even more.  Ending a series is so hard on my heart at times.  And after what Allegiant did to me, I was hesitant to reach anymore series finales.  Finally though, I took the plunge, and I'm so glad I did.  Perry and Aria are two characters that I love very, very much.

SPOILERS FROM BOOK 1 and 2 follows:

The characters that are created among the pages of this series are incredible.  The depth they have and the many layers to the relationships that join such different lifestyles together makes me incredibly happy.  Through the Ever Night left the readers hanging as they wondered how resolution would be found.  With Sable and Hess joining forces to enter the Still Blue with Cinder in their captivity, the Tides faced a lot of challenges at the opening of this book, with the huge elephant in the room that was the Dwellers that had joined their numbers.

The book is full of action and twists that are not so much unexpected but even worse because you dread it coming.  The ride is well worth all the gut-wrenching moments.  Perry, Roar, and Aria show us the highs and lows of what our humanity means.

Veronica Rossi also knows how to end a series without causing me immense heartbreak and refraining myself from writing nasty tweets on the Twitter.  She knows how to satisfy her readers and give them resolution (and not torture us with a love triangle).  I adored the way she ended the series, and I can not wait to fangirl over whatever she writes next.  FANGIRL FOR LIFE over here.
