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: This sequel moves at a better pace than the first book. There was a point, for a brief moment, that I was afraid I wouldn’t like the direction that this book and the relationship between Aria and Perry were going, but everything feel into place quite well. Don’t get me wrong, bad things happen and there is no happily ever after, but it works and makes an interesting story.
The characters develop in this book and really seem to become themselves and step into their roles. The action is good and helps drive the plot. The ending was a bit cliff-hanger-ish, but the book felt finished…on to Into the Still Blue I go!
