Summary from Goodreads.com: 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, hidden enemies, 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 dystopian elements to create a captivating love story as perilous as it is unforgettable.
I have to say while I really enjoyed the first book in this series, Under the Never Sky, I loved Through the Ever Night! A lot of it had to do with the fact that I love Roar and we get to see a lot of him. I think I adore him even more than I adored Perry. Perry was a little too mopey and depressing in this book for my tastes.
One of the highlights was Aria’s relationship with Roar. It was refreshing to see such a strong friendship between and guy and a girl that didn’t have the overtones of a love triangle in the making. They were simply friends who bonded together and supported each other heart and soul. Unlike in most other YA books this friendship didn’t lead into the internal debate of do I love Roar or do I love Perry? Do I love Liv or do I love Aria? Each knew what they wanted and stayed the course.
Veronica also threw in a few surprises that brought a wonderful twist to the story. They were worked in smoothly and served to move the story forward rather than tossed in haphazardly for the shock factor. I don’t want to spoil them but I definitely didn’t see some of them coming and I can’t wait to see how they play out in the end.
There is a lot of action, intrigue and amazing character building. Definitely a sequel that surpassed it’s predecessor.
