Review: Through the Ever Night by Veronica Rossi

Through the Ever Night by Veronica Rossi
Rating: 4.75 stars
Buy the Book: Amazon
Summary: "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."

Review: Just when I thought I was all dystopiaed out, this series came along.  I resisted reading this series because the book covers are so horrible.  (Seriously, they're awful.  Not remotely representative of the rocking story inside.)  But I'm so glad I gave them a chance.  I am loving this series!  It is surprising, gripping, and emotionally compelling.  Book 2's in trilogies are often just filler.  Not so in this series.  Through the Ever Night further develops the characters, deepens the plot, and heightens the stakes.  I left even more emotionally invested than I was after I finished the first book.  One moment in this novel full on ripped my heart out.  Have I talked you into reading this series yet?  I hope so, because it is definitely worth it!  I've already got Into the Still Blue (book 3) on hold at the library, even though it won't be released until January.  January can't get here quickly enough.
