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

Sixth Time Read Review:

I actually have finished reading this book some time last month. But I hadn’t had the chance to update it on here. Well, I actually have nothing to say. The number of time of my rereads of this book says it all. Lol. In short, THIS SERIES FUCKING OWNS MY HEART and makes me so soft. 🥺

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 s
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. :)

gosh. not even a synopsis? :(
Through the Ever Night is the second book in this series and the story is indeed getting better!

The story picked up quickly after what was left in the previous book and Veronica successfully managed to create much more twists in this sequel. Those unsolved problems in the first book were perfectly answered, though she left me with even more mysteries. Luckily, we get to meet amazingly new people here, both good ones and villains. Let me start with Kirra, the Scire girl I HATED most beside Sable

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

“Love is a rebellious bird that nobody can tame.”

A great sequel to Under the Never Sky.

I especially enjoyed watching Aria's relationships with Perry and Roar unfold. There was hardly any relationship drama, just a few tiny twinges of jealousy from Perry's side. But no fights and no tears. In all the books I've read, couples go through different stages in their relationships. There's ups and downs (e.g. Clary&Jace, Tris&Four, Gwyneth&Gideon) in many of those books, so it's refreshing to read of

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 tha
Maja (The Nocturnal Library)
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

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

Will these books ever cease to surprise me?!?!?
This is the second book in a trilogy.


I just...I...what?

This series has honestly surprised me to no end. I'm very wary when I go into second books from a trilogy, like, I go with the lowest expectations because I know they're bound to be slow, I know nothing really happens and always tend to expect the worst (even though the worst still manages to piss me off). So going into this book and coming out as happy as I did.

"We lose and lose, but we're still here."

•I never expected this to be a major issue in this review, but I can't deny it kept my mind occupied far more than I'd liked: the romance. All things considered, I can only describe it as miserably sickly-sweet. In Through The Ever Night, as main hobby everyone whines, mopes, moans, gets so edgy that the only plausible explanation is that they're all on their period (men included) and I swear, I swear, if I could have slapped the lovebirds myself, I would
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.

It's been 2 years since I read the first book in this series, but I rolled right back into this story like I never stopped reading! Perry and Aria's adventure is just so fast-paced and exciting, it never gets boring.
Though I don't remember absolutely everything about the first book, it was pretty easy to get back into this. Perry and Aria are both unique and unforgettable characters who care deeply for each other and it really shows throughout the whole story.

1.) I hAve to say, the first one was far better but still, this was a great sequel.

2.) the characters development sure surprised me. In the first book, I clearly am annoyed at Cinder but in this, I love him. Such a cute lovely boy going through puberty. Lol. Ship him with Willow.

And somehow, I felt pity for Soren for the reason that he ended up getting guilty for what he committed. I did love Reef for he was a fatherly-figure.

Grew more fond of the main protagonists, Aria and Perry than ever.

2.5 ever-so-hopeful STARS ★★★✬✩
This book is for you if… you carry hopes for this series to satisfy you in all the ways you need it. Typically for many trilogies, this sequel feels very much like a ‘filler’.

I still remember how boring I found this instalment and am thus shocked to see I've rated it 3.5 Stars initially. I've deducted a star because it felt right.
I know what you’re thinking. You’re reading a lot of mediocre books lately, Nat.

Aj the Ravenous Reader
The second book to trilogies usually is always literally secondary to its prequel including the greatness of the story. So often, when I read the second book in a trilogy, I set my expectations low. But this book surprised me because it's just as amazing if not even better than the first that I couldn't help tear through the pages to finish it and get my hands on the third book. ...more
Yesy (The Book Vagrant)

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

1.)Under The Never Sky - ★★★

2.5/5 ★

I’m very conflicted about how I feel about this sequel.
It wasn’t bad but it wasn’t good either.
I’m really sad that I’m not loving this trilogy.

There wasn’t much of a plot and almost everything that happened was very predictable. The romance didn't have the development that I was hoping for and it was my least favorite things about this book, and I'm surprised by that because I love romance but this one just didn't do it for me.

‘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.

This book made me cry like a little baby while riding the bus. For some of you this might doesn't sound like that big of a deal but it was, I don't cry in public places. I can hold it back most of the time, but in this book?! Hell no. But I loved it nonetheless. Really loved it!

I loved knowing more about this world, I loved meeting the new characters and knowing more about the ones we met in the first book. I still love Perry more than life and the girl just keeps getting better. I also love Ro

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

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 in TTEN. 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

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.

This book two of the Under the Never Sky trilogy is naturally magnificent. The world building was great. I fully understand now the concept and the goal of this trilogy; Veronica is such a good writer in weaving and interweaving words, sentences, to come up with thoughts you could never imagine.

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

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..

And also things make more sense now.

I was so eager to delve into Aria and Perry's world again! Only this time we're not back in Aria's world, we're in Perry's and boy is it a completely different take. In an almost primitive fashion, Perry being Lord of the Blood Tides has so many responsibilities and it's apparent in this sophomore book. Most of his worries are for his people, and how are they going to live on the land when the storms get worse and worse. We get to see how Perry's mind is constantly thinking of ways to save his p ...more
