Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi
January 3, 2012
Exiled from her comfortable home, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland – called the Death Shop – are slim. Violent energy storms can strike suddenly, and even the very air she breathes might kill her. Then Aria meets an Outsider named Perry. He’s wild, dangerous – a savage. He’s also her only hope.
Because Aria alone holds the key to his redemption, Perry needs her, too. Their unlikely alliance will determine the fate of all who live under the never sky.
Debut author Veronica Rossi is accumulating fans from all over the globe—the book has already sold to more than twenty countries. It’s not surprising that foreign rights for this title have been flying off the shelf. It’s a tantalizing romance in any language.
UNDER THE NEVER SKY is one of the best books that I have ever read. No, this is not an exaggeration. UNDER THE NEVER SKY is so beautifully crafted, with characters that come to life right off the pages. The world it is set in is like nothing I have ever experienced before. It is different, dangerous, yet frighteningly gorgeous at the same time. Honestly, nothing I say will do this book justice. You are just going to have to pick it up yourself to understand what I am talking about!
Aria is the beautiful, strong, and terrified girl who finds herself in a terrible place filled with so-called Savages that she has heard stories about. Her plan to find out what happened to her mother went horribly wrong, and she is torn away from her Pod, cast out into a land that scares her to death. Her chance encounter with Perry, the boy who saved her, enables her to stay alive long enough. She is determined to find her mother, but she also has to help Perry find his nephew Talon, a boy whose disappearance she plays a part in.
Perry is one of the Savages that Aria has heard all about her entire life. But he is nothing like what she has been told. He is fierce and bound and determined to find his nephew who he loves with all his heart. He has some serious issues involving his family, and he appears to be lost. When he finds Aria again, he is absolutely furious. He blames her for what happened to his nephew and is only letting her tag along in order to find out what happened to Talon.
Throughout UNDER THE NEVER SKY, Rossi peals back layers from both Perry and Aria that reveals their true selves to each other. Their time with each other is at first forced and angry, but as they fight to survive together, something beautiful and unexpected blossoms between them. My heart fluttered for them as they slowly recognized their feelings! It made me so emotional because you would never expect something like that to happen, based on their first encounter with each other. Rossi knows how to do a romance right!
UNDER THE NEVER SKY is one of those amazing books that I will have to re-read over and over again. Rossi has a bestseller on her hands, that's for sure! You will not want to miss out on this one.
