  • I have wanted to read Under the Never Sky for ages, though I just haven’t gotten around to it until now. I’m so happy that I did, officially joining the hype! Despite a few things I wish there were more of in the book, there is plenty that I loved earning it a rating of 4! Under the Never Sky is a multi POV story, told by two characters on opposites ends of the ruined world they live in – Perry is changed by the weird substance that flows through the sky, while Aria is genetically changed and living under a rock; escaping to virtual worlds. This book was not what I was expecting and more, giving us a great setting with awesome characters. To start off, one of the best things about Under the Never Sky was the setting and the world building. Rossi has created a strange mix of sci-fi meets fantasy dystopian. Which works surprisingly well because it is so carefully built and thought out. Not only that, but I had surprising ease understanding the world – even though Rossi wastes no time explaining anything. The characters were another favourite of mine in Under the Never Sky. Because both Aria and Perry are from opposite sides of the spectrum, it creates a great, tension filled dynamic when their lives twine together. Both have a natural dislike for the other, yet they need each other to fulfill their goals. This initiates a change in both of them – Aria learns what living is really like, Perry learns to open up and care for someone outside of his family circle. I have to mention that Perry is absolutely desirable. Big and muscley, tan, tats, a wild look about him in hunter clothes. His personality is surprisingly gentle, though. He shows kindness and love better than any person in his position should. Plus, I loved reading his perspective. His straight forward mental voice had me laughing at the wrong times. He is really just a loveable character. The romance was downright brilliant. Nothing is rushed, it is paced to perfection. From hate, to an agreement, to a timid friendship to teetering on the edge of that fall. I don’t know if I would call it realistic, but Rossi left me wanting it to happen. I liked the addition of side characters Roar and Cinder. They were unexpected, though they added a great twist and just layered the plot further. In fact, I feel as though all the side characters that made an appearance built the plot; nothing was wasted or useless in Under the Never Sky. If there was one thing I could change about this book, it would be including more description. I’m a sucker for imagery. I just need to picture this place exactly as the author intended, but I feel as though it lacked in this department. I personally just needed more. I needed to know exactly what this weird sky substance looked like, exactly what some pf the major setting area’s looked like. Sometimes creating things on my own just doesn’t do it like a good description can. This is really the only thing I disagreed with in Under the Never Sky. Though for me it’s a big one. Overall, I loved this book. Loved the character, loved the setting, loved the dynamics, loved the unexpected twists (especially the end) and it ended beautifully – leaving just the right amount of room for the sequel. I am so keen to read the next book in the series!

  • AMAZING!! This book doesn't get enough attention as it should, I read the entire series in about 4 days because I simply couldn't put the books down! This series has action, adventure, mystery, romance and even comedy yet it's always being put in the shadow of the divergent series... Don't get me wrong, I devoured those books to but seriously, I found under the never sky better! I really hope that at some point this book gets as much attention as it deserves and gets itself a movie too

  • Gets Better With Every Chapter

    Under the Never Sky starts out in Aria's POV. Aria is a Dweller, or as the Outsiders put it, a Mole. She lives in a world protected from the harsh elements of the Aether, and spends most of her time in the Realms, a virtual world that is "Better than Real." All Aria's life, she has been told that the outside, known as The Death Shop, where there are one million ways to die, is inhospitable for Dwellers. Even breathing would be impossible to survive without protective suits. Better to stay inside, where people never get ill or grow old. All was good until that fateful day Aria met an Outsider, or "Savage," named Peregrine. After that, her entire life changed for good. * * * This book is going to be a long-time favourite! I enjoyed it so much. The characters were well-developed, and the whole storyline was reasonably paced. I do not say this lightly, as I often come across books that are too fast-paced to sound believable. While I enjoyed the book as a whole, when Peregrine was first introduced, I must say he did come across as a bit primative. I do understand he was to be seen as wild, but I feel this could have been achieved without making him seem less human. However, Peregrine's character did improve as the story unfolded, and the rest of the book more than made up for this small flaw. Over all, I enjoyed this book. It has a great storyline, exciting scenes, suspense, and a little romance. While Peregrine seemed a little primative in the beginning, this improved later on, and overall content made up for this alot. I recommend this book to all dystopian fantasy lovers. Also, if you liked this book, I would recommend Veronica Rossi's other series, Riders. It's amazing! Gideon Blake is such a well-done character, and who doesn't love apocalyptic horses? Not to mention near-death experiences, mysterious, magical wrist cuffs, and friendships reinforced with superpowers and epic magical weapons! And don't forget Daryn, the mysterious girl who knows everything. But don't take my word for it; check it out yourself! With much love to the Falcon Boy, Autumn Peace

  • BEST BOOK EVER

    This is, without a doubt, my favourite book... EVER! I am having a hard time finding another book to read, because I never want to leave this amazing world of love, wonder and adventure. I've read this series 3 times and I'm still not sick of it. 5 stars all the way!
