From the Publisher: It's been months since Aria learned of her mother's death.

Months since Perry became Blood Lord of the Tides, and months since Aria last saw him.

Now Aria and Perry are about to be reunited. It's a moment they've been longing for with countless expectations. And it's a moment that lives up to all of them. At least, at fi rst. Then it slips away. The Tides don't take kindly to former Dwellers like Aria. And the tribe is swirling out of Perry's control. With the Aether storms worsening every day, the only remaining hope for peace and safety is the Still Blue. But does this haven truly exist?

Threatened by false friends 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 sci-fi elements to create a captivating adventure—and a love story as perilous as it is unforgettable.

4 Stars

While I was disappointed in most of the first book, I had no such disappointments here.

While months passed between the events of the first and second books, we didn’t get to experience that and didn’t have to wait for Aria and Perry to be reunited. There was little time where they were apart from one another from the reader’s perspective – and I liked that.

Unfortunately, the good times were not to remain.

Aria and Perry were soon split up again thanks to an attempt on her life by one of Perry’s people. Aria and Roar decided to move out on their own to get information from Sable about the location of the Still Blue so that Perry wouldn’t have to choose between Aria and his own people.

{{{PARTIAL SPOILER ALERT}}}

Through an interesting chain of events, Sable and Hess make a deal with another for the Still Blue that saves only part of their people – and none of Perry’s. Will Aria be able to save those Hess left behind, including Talon? Will they be able to find the Still Blue on their own? Will Aria be reunited with Perry?  What about Roar – will he ever find peace and happiness?

I was flipping the pages just as fast as I could to find the answers to these questions – and I have to admit, I ran out of pages before I found all of the answers I sought.

Luckily, there’s still another book coming out next year. Hopefully, I will find all of the answers in that one.
