Review: Through The Ever Night by Veronica Rossi

Book Synopsis
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?

In this second book in her spellbinding Under the Never Sky trilogy, Veronica Rossi combines fantasy and dystopian elements to create a captivating love story as perilous as it is unforgettable.

I was so excited to start this book. At the end of Under The Never Sky, Aria is on her way to reunite with Perry. Through The Ever Night starts in Perry's POV as he is on his way to find Aria.

If only happy moments lasted. Perry and Aria return to The Tides and they're not so happy to see a dweller with their Blood Lord. They keep their relationship on the down-low for now. Brooke continues to be a jealous winch. With all the negative feelings towards Aria being there and then an attempt on her life, her and Roar leave the tribe to find Perry's sister and the Still Blue.

While Roar and Aria are on their journey, Perry is on one to gain the trust of his people and faith in himself as their Blood Lord. Honestly, his journey is the harder one. Between losing part of his tribe to dissension and the increasing danger from the Aether storms, Perry is near losing everything. In comes the calvery led by a blonde skank named Kirra that I promise you will hate. She was sent by Sable (the leader of the Horns tribe who is to marry Perry's sister Liv). This Kirra girl decides to make a play for Perry.

 I think this caused me the most anxiety. I can't handle the doubts that Perry and Aria have about their relationship. I was really happy about a character from book one that comes back. I did not expect to want to like this guy. I won't ruin the surprise of who it is. But he comes through big time for Aria. In the end Perry has earned the trust of his tribe and reunited with the loves of his life. I loved it and will be anxiously waiting for the next book.

 Veronica Rossi is the author of Under the Never Sky, the first book in a post-apocalyptic trilogy for young adults. She completed undergraduate studies at UCLA and then went on to study fine art at the California College of the Arts in San Francisco. She lives in Northern California with her husband and two sons. When not writing, she enjoys reading, painting, and counting down the minutes until she can get back to making up stories about imaginary people. 
Foreign rights to the UNDER THE NEVER SKY trilogy have sold in over twenty-five territories to date and film rights have been optioned by Warner Bros.
