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.

I loved this book and I love this series. I really, really do. It has such a great set of strong and interesting characters. And I definitely enjoyed as much as the first book.

This might sound a little weird, but one thing I love about this book is about is how Perry and Aria aren't contantly together. I mean, I love them together and I ship the hell out of them but it's a nice change that these two aren't together always, being all lovely dovey. That's definitely not how a would describe their relationship and I just love that.

A lot happened in this book. I'm not going to talk about it into detail but there was definitely growth to be seen, both with Perry and Aria. Aria wants to do everything she can to find the still blue and Perry wants to do everything he can to prove he's a good blood lord. But of course things don't go according to plan.

The other characters were also great to get to know better. Roar was... fantastic as always. I hated how sad he got, though, with Liv... It was also great to get to know Cinder a bit more. I'm quite worried about him. New characters were introduced too... most times I wanted to kill them because they seriously pissed me off but I'll just leave that to Perry and Aria.

Overall, Through the Ever Night by Veronica Rossi was a great sequel to the first book. Amazing writing, describing this amazing world together with the romance and suspense made it simply perfect. I can't wait to read Into the Still Blue!
