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.

Me, all excited for this book:

Me when I see "Expected publication: 2014"

I will miss terribly this series, this last volume was something so awesome. It was a beautiful yet painful way to end my bookish year.
And Veronica, feel free to write some other novellas, I wouldn't mind. Something involving Roar'd be great.

Jenuary 2o13:
So... dear Veronica, I'm here waiting agonizing for this book, y'know. What about write and publish, like, 32352 novels about Roar in the meantime? They'd help a lot.
Let me know.
I'm here.

He leaned down, bracing his arms on either side of her, his lips soft as they kissed a trail from her mouth to her ear. “What I was trying to say,” he whispered, “is that I see you in everything. There isn’t a word for you that means enough, because you’re everything to me.”
“Perfect words,” she said, her smile wobbling with emotion. “Magical.”

I just don't know what to say. I'm shocked. My reaction to this third and final book was so completely unexpected that I've tried several times over the past couple of months to get into it. I was sure it was just me picking it up at the wrong time and not being ready to appreciate it. But, after trying at least ten times to read this book, I've had to put it aside indefinitely. I was finding it so dull that I started skim-reading.

What happened?? I enjoyed Under the Never Sky and I absolutely...more

Veronica Rossi is officially one of my favorite authors. She can't do wrong, I promise. Every single one of the books in this series has been absolutely PERFECT. 'Into the Still Blue" was everything I wanted and more. I laughed, I giggled. I cried (along with Perry and Aria). Perfect conclusion for a perfect series.

The only bad thing I can say about the Under the Never Sky series is that it is over.

I'm going to miss Roar and his jokes. Aria and her awesomeness. I'm going t...more

I posted my official review on Tor. But, seriously. Just everything about this book is made of win, guys.

Oh, and Veronica Rossi is a goddess of amazing genius who I adore with complete abandon. Thank you so much for Perry, Aria and Roar. I'm so sad their amazing story is over!
With Into the Still Blue, we wrap up a trilogy that has, since its first instalment, had me completely and thoroughly invested. Its incredible predecessor may have set the bar monstrously high (perhaps a little too high in places), but there is no doubt that Rossi’s talent is vast and flexible. As a conclusion, Into the Still Blue is solid and satisfying, and as one final opportunity to spend time with Aria and Perry, it is the perfect goodbye.

It isn’t difficult to see where the story is going...more
Into the Still Blue was an amazing conclusion to a series I will hold dear to my heart!

We catch up with Aria and Perry after the fall of the Dwellers compound and the capture of Cinder. They have to frantically work together to save all the survivors by finding the Still Blue. But Sable is a formidable foe and a completely evil one at that. Now that he has Hess working with him and all his resources I wondered if Perry and Aria would be able to prevail. What am I saying here? Of course Veronica...more
I recommend Into The Still Blue.

Through the Ever Night is much better IMO. Still, better ending than I thought possible for this series. :)

Perry! <3

Into the Still Blue was not spectacular, to tell you the truth. Although compared to Reached, it's more quick paced; and compared to Champion, it has more swoon moments.

The best thing about this finale is that Aria and Perry did not waste time. They took what was needed (from each other), and they did what what needs to be done (for each other). A...more
Absolutely amazing conclusion to the series. I'm definitely going to be stuck on this book for a while. It gave me so many more reasons to love the series and to call it my favorite.

I'm happy but at the same time I want to cry.

PS: the last acknowledgment was really sweet and made me tear up. (:


This book is too far away D:

4.5 stars

Although I enjoyed Through the Ever Night more, Into the Still Blue is still undeniably a great time with as a tense conclusion to the series from start to finish.

I cheered a little too loudly at certain deaths. And when Aria beat Kirra up.

Veronica Rossi is a master at title names. First:

The trilogy-ending curse has been broken.

Now I get why it took me 3 tries to finally buckle down and read Into the Still Blue. The final installment was good in its own right, but it was very different in execution. I had been expecting one thing, and when I got something else, I think I balked at it without realizing. Once I got over the fact that the character-driven vibe of the past two books wasn't going to be as strong of a factor here, I settled in to enjoy the one thing that I always say...more

Just Downloaded my ARC!!!



I cannot even form words for how much I loved this book! It was so good! I loved the first two books in this series soo much, and this book was no exception. It was full of action like the previous book, though there wasn't as much of a romantic aspect, it was still there and strong. I love Perry and Roar and Aria. I thought for a second or two that I would die at the ending, but I managed to make it through. I loved every single word! I was transfix

Into The Still Blue is the final conclusion to the Under the Never Sky trilogy and delivered a lot of kick-assery, sweet romance, unforgettable friendships and higher stakes for all the characters. And as a last instalment does, Veronica Rossi adds to this mix with some heartbreak, second chances and sacrifices.

Our two main characters, Perry and Aria were both fantastic narrators and have both come so far. Perry’s bravery and leadership is strong and I enjoye...more
Such a fantastic ending to a phenomenal series. The characters have been through so much and gone through so much development. They remained true to themselves though, and it is so amazing. I just can't rave about this series enough!
I love this world, it's so creative and interesting. I also felt like there were no plot holes and every question was answered :)
I read this book so quickly, I couldn't stop! The writing flows so nicely and is so intriguing.
Read this series!
update with mild spoilers: after mockingjay and allegiance, i've obtained a new phobia to trilogies' endings, but this did not disappoint. in fact, my only complaint about the book is that it was too short because now i'm done reading it and i wish i wasn't. it should have been 99999999 pages so i could read about perry and aria and roar and hell even soren forever.

original: i can't handle the title, i just can't. it's equally as beautiful as the last two but it seems to serve as another remind...more
SO many conclusions of trilogies have left me disappointed at the end, but worry not, this book wasn't one of them. I will say I wasn't crazy about all the drama in the beginning, and I was a bit disappointed about what happened with HIM at the end. But I'll give it 4 stars.

The beginning kind of annoyed the hell out of me. I felt Roar's pain - although I kind of wished he wasn't such a jackass right from the start -but I understand there is just other way to portray that kind of grief. But I jus...more
For me, it's always a bit nerve wrecking going into the final book in a series/trilogy, because I so badly want my favourite characters to have the happy ending they deserve. When trying to rate Into the Still Blue I kept going back and forth between 4 and 5 stars, in the end, though, I settled for 4 stars. Why? Because although it was a good ending, it wasn't a particularly mind blowing one.

Perry and Roar are both grieving over (view spoiler), but have different ways...more

No worries, I can wait that long, right?
I mean, I waited about an year for the second book.
I can do this....
Scratch that.

So excited though! Can't wait!

I have no coherent words... I'm in love with these books and Veronica Rossi and perry and roar... And just everything! Full review coming soon!

Full Review - added 1/3/14

This is a review for the last book in the series. There may inadvertently be spoilers for previous books. You’ve been warned.

Perry and Aria are desperately trying to unite both the Dwellers and the Outsiders and find a way to access the Still Blue and find safety from the Aether storms before Sable and Hess. But first they have...more
Into the Still Blue has been a novel I have anticipated ever since I closed the covers of Under the Never Sky. Even before Through the Ever Night released, I wanted to know the fate of these characters who had become so beloved. Veronica Rossi, as expected, delivers magnificently, tying up all loose ends in a conclusion that is wholly satisfying. While this novel is not my favorite of the trilogy – Under the Never Sky still holds that position – it only emphasizes how difficult it is to pinpoint...more

Edit: Ohmygosh, the cover!! I actually don't like it as much as the other two, but still...

Gahh! 2014?!

Ok, let's go raid Harpercollins for the manuscript! BYO weapons and disguises.

I keep going between three and four stars, but I'm going to round up since I have this inability to not rate as a series (if it's the last book).


It just happens that this is one of my most favorites so I'm rounding up. I have no self control.

I'm not sure how satisfied I am honestly. It's not that this wasn't good, I mean, it's Veronica Rossi - oh wait - I'm sorry, I'm not allowed to mention the author anymore. Uhm, it's the same characters I adore, and they're still just as fabulous as...more
2.5 stars - Spoilers

This was more enjoyable than Through the Ever Night (though that's not saying much since I didn't like that), it was far more action packed, cohesive, and gripping. But there were certain aspects that I had issues with such as the predictability, and the slow middle section, also Perry's character and the romance grated on me (a lot).

-Into the Still Blue was essentially about Aria and Perry trying to save both their people (the Dwellers and Outsiders) from the increasingly de...more



Rating: A satisfying, intense series ender!

This review contains spoilers for Under the Never Sky and Through the Ever Night.

Series enders are a strange mix of exciting and scary. You go into them so ready, so in love with the characters, so invested in the plot. You're ready for them to break your heart. You want SO MUCH for your characters to end up happy, but you also don't want it to end at all.

My experience with...more

********************Spoiler Free************************

I was so nervous going into this as I have not had much luck with dystopian trilogies. Between Alliegent, Requiem and Mockingjay I’d almost given up on the idea of a good solid dystopian trilogy. But Veronica Rossi pulled it off well staying true to who her characters were. Even though it isn’t all roses and sunshine it was a solid action-packed ending to an incredible sci-fi...more

“Fear is dangerous. It sparks violence much faster than anger.”

OMG it's coming. Finally after what felt like forever of waiting for Through the Ever NightI can finally look forward to this one!!!! Finally a series finale that won't suck, (I hope, really, really hope). I have such high expectations for this finale that I'll pre-order it so that I can bee one of the first to see it, If only it weren't that far away from now!! Seriously Veronica Rossi, I've been disappointed befor...more
