My review of Under The Never Sky

Under The Never Sky (Under The Never Sky #1) by Veronica Rossi
Release Date: January 3rd, 2012
Amazon UK | Amazon | Book Depository

A thrilling debut that you won't forget!

Under the Never SkySince she'd been on the outside, she'd survived an Aether storm, she'd had a knife held to her throat, and she'd seen men murdered. This was worse.

Exiled from her home, the enclosed city of Reverie, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland - known as The Death Shop - are slim. If the cannibals don't get her, the violent, electrified energy storms will. She's been taught that the very air she breathes can kill her. Then Aria meets an Outsider named Perry. He's wild - a savage - and her only hope of staying alive.

A hunter for his tribe in a merciless landscape, Perry views Aria as sheltered and fragile - everything he would expect from a Dweller. But he needs Aria's help too; she alone holds the key to his redemption. Opposites in nearly every way, Aria and Perry must accept each other to survive. Their unlikely alliance forges a bond that will determine the fate of all who live under the never sky.

Under The Never Sky was a pleasure to read. I really enjoyed the plot line and unique characters. Veronica Rossi has created a captivating world where the sky is the limit. With beautifully described scenes, this book will have you swooning. 

Under The Never Sky didn't have a very interesting start. I couldn't understand what was happening and I struggled to finish the first few pages. But, it gradually got better. When everything was explained, it all made perfect sense and I really got into the story.

Even though I found the opening scene a bit confusing, I extremely enjoyed the overall book. The characters; very amusing. I think you will really like the main characters Aria and Perry. Aria is very likable girl, strong and a character who is unpredictable at times. Perry is also a strong character, he has a very warm personality when you get to know him. He might seem like a complete jerk when he first meets Aria, but I think their encounter is very funny. Anyway, you will grow to love each character very deeply.

This book did have a very interesting romance going on. It's one of those situations where the characters start off hating and not trusting each other, but you know, after the book goes on they just can't help falling for each other. It is very sweet and the way Aria and Perry's story is told will have you smiling.

The plot for this book evolves around Aria finding her mother and Perry rescuing his nephew. They go on an incredible adventure that is full of action and blossoming romance.

Overall, Under The Never Sky is a book that you should not miss. I recommend this book to anyone who loves a good science-fiction/futuristic before they go to bed. Bewarned: You might not want to go to bed until your finished. The ending will leave you wanting the sequel, Through The Ever Night, very badly.

  1. Great review! I bought this one a little while ago and need to get to it REALLY soon! It definitely sounds like my kind of thing. And I love the cover. :)

  2. Great review. I love books where the main characters hate each other at the start! And then love each other. This book was good. I am glad you enjoyed it.

  3. I'm so glad you liked this book. I've been wanting to read it for a while and keep hearing good things about it, I should just go ahead and pick it up!

  4. I so agree with you!! At first I was a little bored, I don't know what's happening, but then I fell in love with the story and the characters! Can't wait for the second book to come out!

  5. Like your review. And I can't wait to read this book for my self :D


  6. This is another book that I have really wanted to read for a while. Thanks for the review.

  7. I didn't like the start of this book either. I enjoyed the relationship of the 2 main characters when they were just flirting but the moment they got together it became really weird. And Perry changed a lot during the 2nd half of this book something that I still don't understand.

  8. It took me a bit to really get into the story but once I did, I stayed up all night till I finished it.

  9. Ah, love-hate relationships, I can't help loving them!
