Synopsis

Fighting to survive in a ravaged world, a Dweller and a Savage form an unlikely alliance in New York Times bestselling author Veronica Rossi's "unforgettable dystopian masterpiece" (Examiner.com).

Exiled from her home, the enclosed city of Reverie, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland—known as The Death Shop—are slim. Then Aria meets an Outsider named Perry. He's wild—a savage—and her only hope of staying alive. A hunter for his tribe in a merciless landscape, Perry views Aria as sheltered and fragile—everything he would expect from a Dweller. But he needs Aria's help too; she alone holds the key to his redemption.

In alternating chapters told in Aria's and Perry's voices, Under the Never Sky subtly and powerfully captures the evolving relationship between these characters and sweeps readers away to a harsh but often beautiful world. Continuing with Through the Ever Night and concluding with Into the Still Blue, the Under the Never Sky trilogy has already been embraced by readers in twenty-six countries and been optioned for film by Warner Bros.

Could not put down this book. Read it in 2 days and cannot wait to start the next book. The love story between Aria and Perry is really captivating but also the world surrounding them.

A good read in the vein of many dystopic teen books...a strange world just similar enough to our own and two star-crossed lovers.

I remember reading this! I also remember the mistake I made by giving it to my cousin first... She could stop talking about it, which made me want to snatch the book out of her hands! One of the first dystopians I've read and one of the best, too!

Great series! There is really great character development, and it is something that is different from everything else out there. Aria and Perry come from two different worlds and must learn to work together, in order to help one another.

I loved this book. Extremely good read. At no point in two days could I put this book down. Usually points in books bore me and I found only one part that bored me the slow beginning.

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

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!
