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.
