With a mix of dystopian and sci-fi elements, it is no surprise that this has become one of my favorites!
Told from the perspectives of Aria and Perry, Under the Never Sky provides two sides to the story. Reading from both point of views was fantastic! It was so interesting seeing the interactions and knowing the motives behind them. Not only did I get to experience the great dynamic between the two main characters, but I got to see the trust between them develop as well. There was some serious tension between Aria and Perry. They, in addition to a slew of great side characters, were the highlight of this book.
The world building in Under the Never Sky was on par with that of a great fantasy book. If you are looking for a complex, original dystopian setting, this book has it. I was as intrigued with the outside, 'Death Shop,' world as I was with the dome setting. Both groups had their own views on the other. I really enjoyed seeing Aria and Perry challenge the views of each other. The differences between the two made for some great, and at times tense, interactions.
Under the Never Sky is a book that will most definitely please readers across genres. It has so much to offer! You have to check this one out, trust me. Not only is it a quick read, but it is a very satisfying one that will have you dying for the next book. Had I only known how amazing this book was, I would have picked it up the day it was released!

Filled with mystery, intrigue, ass-kickery, and betrayal, this is one not to be missed by adventure fans.
Before you read this book, understand one thing: Cold Fury is one of those books that you just have to go with. I realized that I found the story much more enjoyable when I didn't think about it or analyze it - much like an action film where things can be just a bit far-fetched but the scenes are still entertaining and engrossing. You won't find much depth here but, as I said before, you will most certainly find entertainment.
Character-wise I really enjoyed the protagonist, Sara Rispoli! This is probably because I love a good kick-ass heroine and Sara definitely doesn't disappoint! She is smart, clever, and strong in so many ways.The other characters, while interesting, fell a bit flat for me. I felt that they were lacking in some sense. I hope to see more depth in the characters in the next book!
If you are looking for an action-filled book with a strong female protagonist then Cold Fury is for you! I'm excited to see more of Sara's adventures in Flicker & Burn. (less)
