Since she’d been on the outside, she’d survived an Aether storm, she’d had a knife held to her throat, and she’d seen men murdered. This was worse.
Exiled from her home, the enclosed city of Reverie, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland – known as The Death Shop – are slim. If the cannibals don’t get her, the violent, electrified energy storms will. She’s been taught that the very air she breathes can kill her. Then Aria meets an Outsider named Perry. He’s wild – a savage – and her only hope of staying alive.
A hunter for his tribe in a merciless landscape, Perry views Aria as sheltered and fragile – everything he would expect from a Dweller. But he needs Aria’s help too; she alone holds the key to his redemption. Opposites in nearly every way, Aria and Perry must accept each other to survive. Their unlikely alliance forges a bond that will determine the fate of all who live under the never sky.

If I had to choose, my favorite type of book just might be a tie between books set in castles and books set in the woods.
There’s something so thrilling about a book in which the characters are struggling to survive nature, always on the run. This is why I loved Divergent and Eve and The Hunger Games and Ashfall and Ashes and, goodness gracious, so many more.
This is also why I loved Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi.
I don’t know why I waited so long to read this book, because as soon as I convinced myself to pick it up, I was swept away in the adventure, suspense and romance.
Under the Never Sky is a nice mashup between science fiction and dystopian, and I can’t recommend it enough. It’s a little slow to get into, sure, but once I did…I was just captivated and nervous and in love with the characters. And let me say it a little more clearly: the romance…yeah…so good. I’m dying to read the next book…the ending was just gasp-inducing!
If you’re a reader who loves exciting books, Veronica Rossi’s Under the Never Sky is one you have to pick up.
