Review of Through the Ever Night by Veronica Rossi

Title: Through the Ever Night (Under the Never Sky, #2)
Author: Veronica Rossi
Published by: HarperCollins
Pages: 352
Source: Library
Format: Hardcover
Rating: 5 stars

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?

What an adventure.  Veronica Rossi sure knows how to demand your attention; I couldn't put this book down.  It was so jammed packed with action, deceit, and unknown that one more page turned into one more chapter, which turned into staying up way too late to finish the story.  The Aether is still building and destroying the Tides along with other settlements, so not only does Aria need to find the Still Blue but so does everyone else and they'll stop at nothing to discover that secret.

Through the Ever Night introduces us to some new characters.  Some of these characters are wonderful and will earn a place inside your heart.  Others will make you cringe and make you want to channel your inner warrior to take these people out and to do it painfully.  At times there was almost a mob mentality, especially among the people of the Tides.  Not only does it put Aria's life in danger, but also puts Perry in an intense and complicated dilemma. 

I forgot how much I missed Aria and Perry until I started reading Through the Ever Night.  Personally I think they are one of the best YA couples because their feelings seem so pure and their relationship so uncomplicated.  Don't get me wrong, their lives are one battle after another, but when they are together everything seems perfect.  I wish there were more couples like them.  So often we get the dreaded love triangle or a bad relationship...not with Aria and Perry, they have this calming and serene quality that puts a smile on my face.

Through the Ever Night definitely lived up to it's predecessor.  While the novel does connect the series as a whole, it still had it's own plot and overall story line.  I'm highly impressed with Veronica Rossi and only wish that she would write a bit faster.  I want to know what's going to happen next!

  2. I still haven't read the first book in this series and I have to tell you, I'm terrified. The last three books I read that everyone else loved I haven't liked so much. :-( The idea of an uncomplicated romance appeals, though.

  3. Okay, you said it much better than I did! I think I'll direct people to your review instead of reading my attempt. Wow! that was really a great review! And I totally agree with everything you said. It did have a plot of it's own. I couldn't find the words to say that. Great job!

  9. Hi, I do believe your web site could possibly be having internet browser compatibility problems.
    When I look at your site in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in IE, it's got some overlapping issues. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other than that, fantastic blog!

  12. Tomek i Magda też nie spali. Drugi raz sąsiad z góry wrócił aż do domu około
    trzeciej powyżej ranem i do świtu stukał, przesuwał jakieś umeblowanie, lał wodę do wanny, słuchał muzyki i robił wszystko, co chciał,
    całkiem. Więcej: http://www.bzykanie.com.pl/wojewodztwo-lubelskie,3.html
