Through the Ever Night by Veronica Rossi

Through the Ever Night
Veronica Rossi
2012, 341

Summary from Goodreads


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. 

My summary

So, so, so, so, so, excited about this book!  A Trilogy book 2 that didn’t have me tearing my hair out in disappointment!

Through the Ever Night starts where Never Sky ended.  Aria and Perry reunite and their feelings for each other haven’t changed, but the circumstances around them have.   Eventually those circumstances force them to separate.  Perry stays with his tribe while Aria and Roar go off in search of Liv and the Clear Blue.

This book focuses much more on Perry’s relationship with his tribe and the problems that arise from being Blood Lord.  We also get to see Aria develop a friendship with Roar.  It’s awesome to watch that relationship grow without ever feeling like a love triangle is being forced – they are friends.

My biggest frustration reading the first book in the series was some holes in the world building.  Book two answered all of the questions and then some!  I know what the Aether is and what caused it!

This book also had the perfect blend of action and character/scene development.  Tension is build beautifully without action sequences that go on for too long.

My Rating

Enjoyability (4 out of 5 stars)
Relationships (4 out of 5 stars)
Writing (4 out of 5 stars)

So excited for "Into the Clear Blue" next year.  I’ll buy this one when the price comes down a bit - this series is worth owning.
