A world-defying love is put to the ultimate test in the heart-stopping sequel to Veronica Rossi’s “masterpiece,” Under the Never Sky. (Examiner.com)

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.

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.

— Goodreads.com description

I was highly anticipating this sequel to Under the Never Sky, and Veronica Rossi really lived up to my expectations!

One quick recommendation before we go any further: Reread book one before you start in Through the Ever Night. The cast of characters is large, their relationships are complex and the world is very unique. It’s not the sort of series you can jump in and out of and pick up as you go, you know? I did a reread, and I’m so glad I did.

As my friend Jamie said, though, it’s not too often you like a sequel better than the first book..and I totally felt the same way about this book too. Perry! Aria! Roar! Cinder! The characters are so strong but broken, so likable and determined.

Oh, gosh, I don’t know what to say. Read this series if you’re into dystopian novels. It’s fresh, it’s different, it’s damn good. The end.

PS: One caveat: Is that supposed to be Perry on the cover? Because that is NOT Perry. Oh well!

    The Perry on the cover is so not how Perry is described in UtNS!
    I LOVED Under the Never Sky so I’m eagerly waiting on TTEN. Thanks for recommending a reread and I’m def. going to do that, because I can’t stand it if I don’t remember some of the characters clearly anymore.

    Oh my gosh, I cannot wait for this one!! I’m so excited to read more about Roar.
    And yeah, I hope that’s not supposed to be Perry because it doesn’t look anything like how I pictured!

    WAH I wish we lived near each other so that we could have talked about this book over coffee!! SO wish I would have reread UTNS! I would have saved myself a lot of time googling spoilers and trying to remember things lol.

    AND I SO AGREE ABOUT THE COVER. That is SO not Perry!

    So very glad I took your advice and did a (partial) re-read. I read the last 100-ish pages again and it helped me so much. Rossi jumped right back in with the story and didn’t do a lot of retelling.. which I LOVE. I hate when I feel like I’m wasting my time re-reading things I remember. :-/ Anyway… no, definitely not Perry on the cover. Hoping to get a good chunk of this read tonight. I’m about 150ish pages in now! xoxo

    Totally agree. I enjoyed “Under the Never Sky”, but wasn’t in a huge hurry for “Through the Ever Night”, But WOW did I end up loving it! Cannot wait for book 3.
