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 (Examiner.com).
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. (Goodreads)
I feel much the same about the characters in the book now as I did about them when I first started the series. I have really enjoyed watching Aria grow SO much through the series, from being a dweller to becoming an outsider and finally finding her place right where she belongs, beside Perry. Perry also grew so much throughout the series. When we first meet him he is a wild child, and over time we watch him mature and come into his role as Blood Lord to his tribe. And Roar… there is just so much I can say about him; he is just such a wonderful character. I love his friendship with Perry, but even more his friendship with Aria. They are all just really great characters all around. I have really enjoyed going on this adventure with them.
It’s not only the main characters that were so special to me, but even the secondary characters are great as well. I love Cinder, bless his heart. I couldn’t help but love the kid. Molly, Willow, Reef and his Six, Brooke… I could go on and on about the characters that I grew to love throughout this series. But I think you should check out the books yourself so that you can see exactly what I’m talking about when you meet them.
There was a lot of tension and suspense throughout the book. There were quite a few moments that had me gripping my chair, anxious to see what would happen next. I really had to wonder if anyone was going to make it out alive, so much was happening. I thought the end of the book was very well done. All of the loose strings seemed to be tied together, and while there were a few things that I didn’t want to happen that did, I thought the ending was very realistic for the series. I hate to see it all end!
Overall; as I mentioned, this book was a wonderful ending to this fantastic series. If you haven’t had the chance to check this series out yet, I definitely recommend that you do so! The books make for very enjoyable reads.
