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 b...more

Well, finally after a series of disappointing sequels this year (Rebel Heart, Insurgent, The Calling) I've found a book that was even better than its predecessor. I think Rossi has gone even further with this installment, building on her characters and their relationships with one another, creating a number of funny, sad and ultimately memorable little moments that made me even more invested in the bigger picture. What she does best here is get the balance right between fast-paced action/adventu...more

TIP: DONT read your favorite book series when you're sick. I finished it without much feels and was not able to dive and lose myself into the story. I know, the blame is on me. Will read again. :)

This review contains spoilers for Under the Never Sky.

Recently--and far too often, if you ask me--in young adult trilogies, second installments have been widely known to be practically a resting point for both the author, and the characters and the plot. Instead of what should be an intense ride setting up for the final installment, the second installment in a trilogy is, more often than not, a complete and utter bore ending with a bang to lure readers who were less than impressed with the seco...more

Through the Ever Night was AMAZING! Everything I loved about Under the Never Sky was kicked up several notches and then some! Epic adventure, heart-pounding action, romance, friendship, longing, and heartbreak are all found within the pages. I’m still reeling with awe at the love I have for this story!

We pick up right where the story left off in Under the Never Sky where Aria and Perry meet again. Their love for each other is strong, but they face so many outside challenges. The Aether storms s...more

Give it to me, she wanted to scream. Give me the pain. Let me take it from you.

4.5 stars. Why you hurt me, book? Please forgive me for being stuck in kittah speak, but for the love of all that's good, WHY?!?

You are toying with my emotions, Ms. Rossi. I don't know whether to be impressed or angry over the gut punch that I just felt. Of course, the part of me which questions everything is not going to take this lying down. I will get back up and seek out answers. I am not convinced that what ju...more

It's not often that a sequel outshines its predecessor, but with Through the Ever Night, it seems to be the general consensus. We've had a few examples here and there, and they've all proved to be pretty memorable, but I don't think I've ever seen a case quite like this. Don't get me wrong – I loved Under the Never Sky, it was fresh and dynamical and it left a lasting impression, but due to its intensity, Through the Ever Night is far more remarkable. Rossi has grown more confident as a writer,...more

Usually V and I go on random adventures together. Like that time she was a Steampunk airship captain and I was helping her storm a flying fortress to steal back some booty. Or like when we went trekking through an alien jungle to rescue a space whale from some poachers. Ya know, we hang out. Have fun. Repress our strong feelings for each other in lieu of maintaining a platonic friendship. The usual.

So I’m pretty used to her taking me on wild adventures. I just don’t think I’m ever going to get u...more

Under the Never Sky, Veronica Rossi’s stunning debut novel and the first instalment of this excellent series, introduced me to world both frightening and rich in imagination. With Aether skies and a split futuristic society, and driven by brilliant characters and a superbly-developed romance, Under the Never Sky was in a league of its own. The sequel, I am pleased to say, is just as spectacular, if not more.

Very few other contenders in this genre manage to achieve such a fine balance be...more

Rating: 4.5 Stars

Through the Ever Night is one of the few sequels that truly took me by surprise - in the best possible way. I can't quite articulate how excited I was for this book, especially after loving Under the Never Sky, so to say that my expectations were met would be an understatement. Once again, Veronica Rossi has proved her prowess as a writer and if there's anything I can guarantee, it's that fans of the series will most definitely not be disappointed by this scintillating sequel.

‘Under the Never Sky’ was a book I was dying to read, put off for so long, and fell in love instantly; so when I was given the chance to read ‘Through the Ever Night’ I couldn’t contain my excitement. I was desperate to jump back into Perry and Aria’s world. After the way the first book ended, I needed to know if they’d get together. The action, excitement and emotional rollercoaster we’re sent on met all my expectations and more. I loved every single moment of this book.

Whew. I am stunned because I didn’t like Under the Never Sky at all and had my doubts about continuing this series, but I am so glad I gave this book a chance because, turns out, Through the Ever Night is the best book I've read in months. Very impressive. As a note, this review is mostly aimed at my fellow Under the Never Sky unenthusiasts, because for fans of the first book, I think the only thing I need to say is this sequel is so worth it.

For me, the problem with Under the Never Sky wasn't t...more

I think I'm going to scream out of happiness! I just got a signed ARC of Through The Ever Night in the mail and Veronica Rossi sent me a signed bookmark. Time to freak out!


Words can't express how much I loved this book. No review can justify the awesomeness of Veronica Rossi's latest book in her Under The Never Sky Trilogy. Aria is finally reunited with Perry and what a reunion it was. Perry is having difficulty being Blood Lord and finding the Still Blue. I am...more

Before reading the book. This was when the cover was revealed..

WoW . Perry looks very..... modern ? o.O . Atleast for a guy who has lived in the woods for all his life and basically doesn't own a decent shirt .

After reading..

Well let's just say , that things are much much clearer now and definitely much better.
And also things make more sense now.

.....what i loved about this book is the nice use of vivid imagination. the building of the plot is pretty interesting and it keeps you glued to the bo...more

Through the Ever Night takes you on an emotional roller coaster ride that leaves you with ALL THE FEELS.

In Through the Ever Night, Perry and Aria are faced with many challenges. Rossi pushes these characters to their limits and you can see just how much they've developed/are still developing. Perry is now the Blood Lord of the Tides and with that comes deep responsibility for the well-being of his people. Not everyone thinks he's a suitable leader though, especially when he brings along Aria.

Thoughts after reading it:

It's 3am and I don't know HOW the eff I'm supposed to fall asleep after that?? OMG. SO freaking good. Not often I enjoy a second book more than a first.

ALSO. I didn't think it was possible to love Roar anymore. But I do.

From my "Final Thoughts" portion of the review:

I’m going to pretty much officially say I liked Through The Ever Night MORE which I rarely ever say about a book 2. Prepare to get your workout in turning those pages furiously because this was one of th...more

First Thoughts:
Read, finished, LOVED. I have so many FEELINGS. Happy. Sad. Hope.
Sorrow.
Everything about this book...there's a greater sense of urgency and purpose, and... Oh, the characters. WOWOWOW.


Sequels are tricky things; even more so 'middle books'. With a happy romantic union cemented in book one, how does the author sustain chemistry? With a journey underway, how does she maintain momentum on route to a distant conclusion? Is it time to answer questions? Pose them? Fans are demanding crea...more

**4.5 stars**

Can I just say "la la la la la" and pretend some of this stuff in this book didn't happen??

Veronica Rossi does not hold back! I kind of love-hate her right now. She has the nerve to write such a kick a$$ sequel to Under the Never Sky and mess so so thoroughly with my emotions. I'm a mess right now.

This book takes place right after "Under the Never Sky". It had been a few weeks since I read the first in the series an...more

Ok, while this wasn't as intense as Under the Never Sky, it doesn't even matter. I was so invested in this book because the characters and the story itself are just stellar.

Perry and Aria are my dream couple. They are just perfect. That's all that needs to be said on that. Perry definitely had his hands full with his responsibilities as Blood Lord and trying to find Talon as well the Still Blue. I liked that things didn't go his way. He struggled and that made me love him even more. I liked see...more

Days were darkened by clouds and the blue cast of Aether. Nights were brightened by the same. They flowed together, the edges blurring into an endless day. An ever night.


Through the Ever Night could very easily have fallen into the endless pit of mediocre “middle of the trilogy” books. These books are all about connecting the beginning and the end, and I understand that it can be a challenge for most authors. The exciting part where the characters are introduced, get to know each other and hav...more

I don’t usually read books significantly before their release dates. A lot of it has to do with me getting excited about the book and then trying to hold off my review closer to around the release date. I’ve waited about all I can with Through the Ever Night. So here it is!

Through the Ever Night is book two, so if you haven’t read Under the Never Sky, you should get on that. Seriously. I waited to read Under the Never Sky and I wished I had to read soooo much sooner! This is one of those books t...more

Update: Now that I've recovered from the shock of seeing this goooorgeous cover, I do have to say one thing: Perry does not look like the Perry I pictured. o_o I thought he'd have curlier, blond hair and darker skin.

Attenzione, prima della recensione c'è un mio sfogo sull'editoria italiana, censurato. With love.

Qualcuno mi spieghi perché questa serie è stata interrotta. PERCHÉ?
Flashback, novembre 2012: una lettrice gongolante aka me scopre che Under the never Sky verrà pubblicato in Italia e decide, ingenua, di comprarlo in italiano.
Dicembre 2013: la serie è interrotta. La mia già quasi inesistente fiducia nelle CE italiane polverizzata. Perché ovviamente solo in Italia posso essere pubblicate in pochi mes...more

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...more

Ah...sweet reunion; for Perri and Aria and for me and this book. For something that I've pretty much waited an eternity for, I was a little worried that it was going to be a let down. And I must admit that for a time or two there, it looked like it was going to anger me. I was ready to go on a raaaaaging mode but thankfully, we didn't reach that point.

Aria, Perri and Roar has three missions in this book: one - to get Talon back from Hess. Two, to get Liv back from Sable and three, to locate Stil...more

I was afraid this book wasn't going to be as great as the first one because recently I've come across a couple books that were amazing and then there sequels were just whatever. Through The Ever Night was absolutely nothing like that. It starts with a more detailed description of Perry and Aria's reunion which happened at the end of Under The Never Sky. After they are reunited Perry uses his new status as Blood Lord to bring Aria to the Tides as an ally. When they arrive in the Tides they prete...more

So I'm giving the second book in the Under the Never Sky series 4.5 stars. Rereading my review of Under the Never Sky - Book 1 - I found that the same things I had issue with in the first, really aren't explained anymore in depth in book 2, but I just seriously couldn't put this book down. There was so much that happened and I know I can't explain it all in this review, so I'm going to focus on a few things and then just let you read it and fall in love too!

Again, the characters in this book had...more

Hated it. I found it boring as hell. I quite enjoyed the first one, unfortunately this one wasn't entertaining. The only good thing about it was that the world building was a little better this time around (though that's not saying much since it was atrocious in the first book).
Aria's POV was so bland. She had the personality of plank, she was the typical do goody cookie cutter heroine found in every YA book. There was nothing to Aria apart from her love for Perry, she was so devoted an...more

3.5 stars - Rounding down. I have mixed feelings because there were things Rossi did better, and then there were other things that weren't. It was a good read, but I wasn't sucked in.

I'm looking forward to reading this book, but... Come on, that is NOT how Perry looks and everyone knows it! I haven't actually had any experience living outdoors or in the wild, but I'm pretty sure someone that did/does would NOT look like a model.

Oh, and apparently he's taken a trip to the hair salon too, because I'm seeing a bit of a Rob Pattinson style going on there. I see they dyed his hair for him too, hmm... And, wait. Hold up. Why is his skin... Lighter?? Must be some kind of beauty tec...more
