Through the Ever Night by Veronica Rossi

Publisher's summary: It's been months since Aria learned of her mother's death.

Months since Perry became Blood Lord of the Tides, and months since Aria last saw him.

Now Aria and Perry are about to be reunited. It's a moment they've been longing for with countless expectations. And it's a moment that lives up to all of them. At least, at first. Then it slips away. The Tides don't take kindly to former Dwellers like Aria. And the tribe is swirling out of Perry's control. With the Aether storms worsening every day, the only remaining hope for peace and safety is the Still Blue. But does this haven truly exist?

Threatened by false friends and powerful temptations, Aria and Perry wonder, Can their love survive through the ever night? In this second book in her spellbinding Under the Never Sky trilogy, Veronica Rossi combines fantasy and sci-fi elements to create a captivating adventure—and a love story as perilous as it is unforgettable.


My take: Just like the first, I absolutely loved this book! But I’m actually quite pissed off with Veronica Rossi because of the way this book ended, and I’m desperately, impatiently waiting for the last book in this trilogy.

I don’t know if I could say that this book was better than the first, because I love them both in different ways. But this continuation of the story only made me more of an obsessive fan. Through the Ever Night doesn’t quite pick up right from the end of Under the Never Sky, but it picks up right at the perfect spot. I absolutely love how the beginning played out, and I’m now smiling just thinking about it again. But almost immediately, Veronica Rossi starts throwing in plot complications left and right that keep the story quite entertaining.

I grew even more attached to the characters in this second book than I already was after reading Under the Never Sky. Particularly Roar! I liked Roar from Under the Never Sky, but I fell for his character big time in Through the Ever Night. I’m still very fond of both Aria and Perry, but there were times they each made me a little nervous because I did not always agree with their actions. I don’t want to spoil anything, but there’s a character I wanted to learn more about from UtNS who makes an appearance in TtEN, and that part in this book was CRAZY!!! Then there’s this new chick in TtEN who’s thrown into the mix who causes all sorts of complications! And I can’t forget that there’s a character from the first book who I (surprisingly) ended up liking by the end of this second book (another spoiler that I will not divulge), and they might end up being one of my fave characters.

The last part of the book was phenomenally insane! It was intense and action-packed, all the while pissing me off with how the story was going. The whole book was absolutely amazing; I’m super excited for the last book in this trilogy, and Veronica Rossi just gained a major fan of her series.

I'm so jealous you got to read this early! :) Under the Never Sky was one of my favorite books this year, so I can't wait to read the sequel.
And yay for Roar! I thought he was very funny in the first book.

Great review!! I really need to read the first book. I do have it, I just haven't found the time to fit it in. I have a feeling I will love this series though. :)

I just started reading this last night. I got a stack of books for a Harper rep last night and I'm so excited that I got this one! HOpefully this will get me back on the reading wagon, been off for the last few months and I'm getting the itch to slowly get back on

Great review! Can't wait to read this. I just finished reading Roar and Liv and I absolutely loved it also. Ms. Rossi crafts incredible characters, relationships and action packed events succinctly but also in an almost poetic way.
