Goodreads Description:



Aria has lived her whole life in the protected dome of Reverie. Her entire world confined to its spaces, she's never thought to dream of what lies beyond its doors. So when her mother goes missing, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland long enough to find her are slim.

Then Aria meets an outsider named Perry. He's searching for someone too. He's also wild - a savage - but might be her best hope at staying alive.

If they can survive, they are each other's best hope for finding answers.

Under the Never Sky was a book that I didn't know what to expect going in. I'm not sure I even read the description. It was one of the books I got at RT and had been wanting to read but never gotten to. I had several Audible credits I needed to spend so I decided to get Under the Never Sky.  Despite a somewhat slow start, it turned out to be a good choice.

As stated Under the Never Sky got off to a slow start for me. Books with a futuristic, sci-fi feel are hit and miss for me. I'm not fan of books that throw a lot of information to you but I also like to have enough information to know what's what. Under the Never Sky definitely was leaning toward the not enough side. Veronica Rossi simply lets Aria tell us the story and we just have to figure out what a pod is and why they are in them. Some details we don't find out until way later, such as, who was chosen to be in the pods and who wasn't. Once I figured out what everything was,  I found myself enjoying the book much more.

I liked both Aria and Perry. I liked their gradual relationship. I loved that they both had their prejudices against one another but that slowly that began to get past that and see the other for who they really were. With that being said, Roar stole the show for me. I loved him! He has this larger than life personality. He is this funny, laid back guy that is so passionate about life. His mood was infectious! 

There was a lot of action in Under the Never Sky. Between the croven (maybe that spelled right, I have no idea since I listened to the audio) and the Aether storms there was pretty much something always going on. 

I have been getting away from dystopian books lately and been instead leaning toward contemporary books. Still, Under the Never Sky caught my attention and kept me entertained. As soon as I finished book one, I started book two (which I have also finished now and I just began book three). I am super excited to see how this story ends!

  1. I haven't heard the audio for this one yet, but Roar has certainly become a fan favorite.
