Overview

A world-defying love is put to the ultimate test in the New York Times and USA Today bestselling sequel to Veronica Rossi's "masterpiece," Under the Never Sky (Examiner.com ). In this second book in her spellbinding Under the Never Sky trilogy, bestselling author Veronica Rossi combines fantasy and dystopian elements to create a love story as perilous as it is unforgettable.

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 and powerful temptations, Aria and Perry wonder, Can their love survive through the ever night?

Editorial Reviews

Booklist
“This story of loyalty, survival, and love satisfies with its balance of action and emotional resonance.”
Romantic Times
“Favorite characters return, new characters emerge, and fans of Under the Never Sky are in for a treat.”
Horn Book Magazine
“Perry and Aria are convincing protagonists as they both cling to and exploit each other to get through their days. In a dying world, even the bad guys have the complexity of desperation; they act as effective foils against which Aria and Perry develop as flawed, though well-intentioned, leaders.”
Kami Garcia
“Heart-stopping action and romance collide in this page turning adrenaline rush. I am officially obsessed.”
School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up—Rossi continues the excellent saga that she began in Under the Never Sky (HarperCollins, 2012). Perry is still struggling with his new duties as Blood Lord of the Tides tribe when he is reunited with Aria. Although she is an Aud, blessed with supernatural hearing, Aria receives a cool welcome from most of the Tides because her mother was one of the Dwellers from the domed community of Reverie. She earns the acceptance of the tribe when she uses her hearing to rescue a child during an Aether storm but is still poisoned shortly thereafter. She slips away from the compound without telling Peregrine in order to keep him safe and to search for the Clear Blue, a place that is rumored to be immune to Aether storms. She hopes to trade its location to Consul Hess of Reverie for the release of Talon, Peregrine's nephew. Peregrine also believes that the Clear Blue may be the last hope for his people as the Aether storms are increasing in intensity, threatening the lands and lives of this tribe. Even apart, Aria and Peregrine's feelings for each other deepen while their struggles and tragedies only make their hope that much stronger. Rossi's descriptions of their supernatural senses add richness to her prose. This book doesn't stand on its own but builds strongly on the previous volume. It should appeal to readers of dystopia, fantasy, and romance.—Eric Norton, McMillan Memorial Library, Wisconsin Rapids, WI
Kirkus Reviews
Rossi returns to her dystopia, in which main characters Aria and Peregrine fight for survival in the face of unpredictable forces (Under the Never Sky, 2012). An orphan now living outside of her domed home, Aria is dependent on her new allies, the same people she once regarded as incorrigible savages. Having defeated his brother in the first book of the series, Perry is now Blood Lord, but he has yet to earn the fierce loyalty he yearns for from his people. Rossi splits her storytelling between each of these two characters' perspectives, but the resulting narrative is less engaging than readers may expect. Reminders of what has already passed are sparse; readers may have trouble orienting themselves. Driving action is limited during the first half of the book, until an incident in which Aria falls victim to treachery. This critical moment precedes a second half that is rife with twists and turns. The emotional voltage ramps up too, as characters grapple with betrayal, loss and temptation. The relationship between Aria and Perry, however, soars on a nearly unbroken trajectory throughout the story, dampening the excitement for readers with its predictability. Though it takes too long to get started, it delivers compelling drama in the end; whether that's enough to keep fans engaged for Into the Still Blue (coming in 2014) is debatable. (Dystopian romance. 14 & up)
