Also by this author: Under the Never Sky, Into the Still Blue

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?

Yes I know this book came out almost a year ago! I have finally read it, and really enjoyed it.

We pick up where Under the Never Sky left off. I’ve always loved the dual point of view. It gives us a look into what’s happening in both Perry & Aria’s journeys. There’s so much going on with the Aether that there won’t be a world left due to it’s growing intensity. Everyone is searching for the Still Blue.

I liked that we got to meet some new characters, but still had our favorites from the prior novel present. We also get to see how Perry handles being the leader of The Tides. He faces many difficult decisions, and some of his choices aren’t always the best ones according to his people. They think he cares too much about the individual person than the group as a whole. But really, is there anything wrong with caring about each individual person?? I don’t think so.

Aria also has her own things to deal with. She’s trying to keep Talon safe, and keep The Tides from hating her. I love the relationship her and Roar have developed. It’s great to see such an honest friendship. Aria has learned a lot since leaving her life as a Dweller. She’s stronger, and thinks through things in a different way.

I can’t wait for the third book. I need to know what happens. Especially with how this one ends.

About Veronica Rossi

Veronica Rossi is a best selling author of fiction for young adults. Her debut novel, UNDER THE NEVER SKY, was the first in a post-apocalyptic trilogy. Released in January 2012, it was deemed one of the Best Books of Year by School Library Journal. The series appeared in the NY Times and USA Today best seller lists and was published in over 25 foreign markets.

Her second series for young adults will begin with RIDERS (published February 16, 2016), the story of four modern day teens who become incarnations of the four horsemen of the apocalypse, and the prophetic girl who brings them together.

Veronica completed her undergraduate studies at UCLA and then went on to study fine art at the California College of the Arts in San Francisco. She is a lifelong reader and artist. Born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, she has lived in Mexico, Venezuela, and all over the United States, to finally settle in Northern California with her husband and two sons.

When not writing, Veronica enjoys reading (it’s worth repeating), painting, and running. She does NOT like anything involving numbers, the addition of them, subtraction of them, you name it. They terrify her. Her obsessions generally lead to fictional works. Currently, she’s exploring New York City during the Revolutionary War.

Don’t tread on me. (If you know what that means, then you are my people!)

What else? This is getting more fun, isn’t it?

She–okay, I–am a huge fan of the SF Giants and the Golden State Warriors. I know, I know. Book types and sporty types shouldn’t be one in the same, but what can I say? I’m breaking the mold. Continuing. I have an irrational love of elephants. They make me cry, but it’s the best kind of cry. On other end of the spectrum, I abhor the shrill squeak styrofoam makes when it’s coming out of a box. Just typing that sentence made me want to scream. Needless to say, Christmas is great, but also really tough on me.

It’s probably time to wrap this up. If you’re here, it’s likely because you’ve read one of my books, or because you’re thinking about reading one of my books. Either way, thank you. Writing fulfills me like nothing else and I feel exceedingly fortunate to also call it my profession.
