Through the Ever Night (Under the Never Sky, #2)

My rating: 4.5 stars

Through the Ever Night is a fantastic sequel to Under the Never Sky. Aria and Perry have spent some months apart, and we see them reunited. Perry takes Aria back to the Tides, of which he's now the Bloodlord. While hoping that his people will accept Aria, he's doubtful. But I don't think he has any idea how bad it'll actually be.

We learn more about the cause of the devastation of the world. About three hundred years before, a solar flare corrupted the earth's magnetosphere, causing the aether storms, and bringing about the Unity, where through a form of lottery, people were brought onto the pods, the rest being left to fend for themselves outside. But now, with an increase in the storms, which sees them occur more frequently, even in summer, not even the pods are safe anymore.

Farms and woodlands are being destroyed cutting off the food source, and the ocean is not much safer for the fishermen. Things are very difficult for Perry, and with the Tides perceiving him to have chosen Aria over them, Perry knows he needs to find a safe place for what remains of his tribe. Being Bloodlord is a lot harder than he expected.

There's a race on for the Still Blue. A rumoured place with blue skies and no aether storms. Outsiders and dwellers alike want to find it. But it seems only the lucky ones will make it, the rest are being left behind. An awesome rescue sees the two groups having to come together and I can't wait to see the results.

At times I was anxious read this book. Perry and Aria are separated again and I worried a love triangle was on the cards, in the form of another girl for Perry. If this had been the case, I honestly don't think I could have continued on with this book, it would have been too frustrating. I had to stop reading and look to Goodreads friends for confirmation, and thankfully, no love triangle forms. Sometimes, I can enjoy a love triangle, but this most definitely wouldn't have been one of those times.

Soren, who we hadn't seen since the beginning of Under the Never Sky makes a reappearance in this book, and I found him quite enjoyable. I'm looking forward to seeing more of him in the future, he has great potential as a guy I'll love to hate lol.

This series has become a firm favourite for me. I love the world that Veronica has developed and I love the characters that she's brought to life. I'm already looking forward to reading these books again.

Oh a love triangle would ruin this series. Part of the appeal is the chemistry and love between perry and aria and the build up that we read .

Nice review. I agree with everything you say. For a moment there I was really cross with Perry, and I also thought a love triangle was developing. Thankfully, he didn't fail us! this is also one of my favourite series. Can't wait for the next one.

Nice review. I agree with everything you say. . can't for the last one

I was quite worried that we would get a love triangle here too (it definitely felt possible at times), but I was so relieved that Rossi chose not to go down that route. Thank god! As you know, I loved this one too. I thought it was even better than the first book.. I don't think I could be more excited for Into the Still Blue if I tried. Fantastic review, love!

I am envious that you are taking time to read all these books that I have been wanting to read. I need to just take a break from the ARCs and spend some time doing my kind of reads. I have heard amazing things abou thtis series. I am glad to hear that it doesn't go inot hte lvoe triangle territory.

Suzanne Paranormal Pages said...

Yay, I'm so happy you loved this one too, Suzanne. I'm dying to get my hands on book 3 so that we can find out how everything is wrapped up. The wait feels sooo long!

Suzanne Paranormal Pages said...

Don't say that Donna, I couldn't bear it :(

Suzanne Paranormal Pages said...

Yay! This book sooo rocked! I foresee a love connection with Soren and Kirra ;)

Suzanne Paranormal Pages said...

Hmm interesting....I really didn't like her. I think it was because she was trying to get into Perry though lol

Suzanne Paranormal Pages said...

No, wait... not Kirra. I get the names mixed up.. I'm thinking of the chick who was already part of Perry's tribe that hates Aria. HER and Soren.

Suzanne Paranormal Pages said...

Oh I know who you mean, is it Brooke? I didn't like her but I wouldn't mind that :)

Suzanne Paranormal Pages said...

Yeah, Brooke sounds right. I'm terrible with names and I didn't write her's down.
