I thought Through The Ever Night was a strong sequel to Under The Never Sky. The story is particularly intriguing. I liked seeing more of the rich, imaginative world that Veronica Rossi has created. I really thought the characters Perry, Aria and Roar were much better developed than in the first book. The only thing that I could really fault is that there wasn't enough of Perry and Aria together. I love them together and they were mainly separated in this instalment. I thought Aria was a much more stronger character, despite what she's been through. Perry had also matured, he seemed a softer person, but stronger at the same time.
Veronica Rossi's writing seems stronger than in Under The Never Sky. I can't wait to read Into The Still Blue to see how this series ends.
Under the Never Sky really confused me on my first attempt at reading it, but the second time around everything fell perfectly into place - I fell in love with the characters, was enamoured with the world-building and really enjoyed the story that Veronica Rossi built.
Through the Ever Night is much darker than Under the Never Sky, as things start to get pretty serious for both the Dwellers and Outsiders. Relationships are tested, the darker side of humanity emerges, and the threat to the surivial of the Tides really increases the tension in the story.
All the characters I liked from the first book were back, as well as some really good baddies - there's nothing better than a despicable villain, and Ms. Rossi's are fabulous. I particularly liked that Aria and Perry's relationship didn't just turn into all butterflies and roses, and they were tested in several ways, and don't spend the whole book mooning over each other.
I did mention in my review of Under the Never Sky that I hoped various parts of the world-building would be revealed, such as how the world came to be split into Outsiders and Dwellers, and in Through the Ever Night there are more details on how the aether works, the tribal interactions and clashes and a little more about Reverie and the realms, but still enough was held back to keep me curious for the third installment.
I forgot to mention in my review of Under the Never Sky that I enjoyed the various paranormal elements too - although I don't consider them really paranormal, but more connected to the post-apocalyptic effects of the changes to the world. However they really came into play in Through the Ever Night, and it was fascinating to find out more about them.
Through the Ever Night was dark, addictive, intense reading and once again I couldn't put it down - I even considered pulling the emergency brake on my train when I was 95% done as I couldn't stand the idea of not being able to finish before I had to put it down!
As a dystopian / post-apocalyptic series, Under the Never Sky is one of the best ones that I've read recently, and I'll be eagerly awaiting the final installment next year.
The Aether is behaving unpredictably. Winter is over, and so the Aether should be calming down, but instead, it's getting worse, with storms striking every few days. Finding the Still Blue has never been more important, lives depend on it, so Aria makes the decision to go off and search out information about it, with the help of Roar. Now Blood Lord of the Tides, Perry has to stay at the compound and look after his people, whose lives are getting all the more difficult with the damage caused by the Aether. However, the Tides are beginning to doubt Perry because of his association with Aria, and Perry discovers leading the Tides isn't easy.
Aria and Perry don't spend as much time together in this book as they did in Under the Never Sky, as they both have different responsibilities, but they're both finding their individual tasks more difficult than they thought. It was brilliant to see each character away from the other, seeing just how strong they are on their own, yet just how much they feel for each other, as proved by how they struggle with the separation.
Seeing Perry with his tribe is just wonderful. No-one could care more about a group of people, except maybe Aria. He has a tough challenge ahead of him, and it's brilliant seeing him take up his role and taking it so seriously, every single option thought through, and doing what he feels best for the tribe, despite sometimes being disagreed with. We get to meet or get to know better members of the Tribe, and find out exactly how the tribe works. Being Blood Lord isn't just something that comes to you with a chain, it's something that has to be earned, through the loyalty and trust of the tribe's people. You can't help but feel proud watching Perry tentatively take his first few steps as Blood Lord.
Aria has come on leaps and bounds since her days in Reverie. She's stronger, more determined. She is more of sure of what's right; no matter who a person is, doing the right thing for them is what Aria is all about - Outsider and Dweller alike. Roar and Aria get on so well, they're such fantastic friends, and it's just wonderful the support they give each other at various points of their journey. Unfortunately, I can't talk too much about what their task involves, because it's kind of spoilery, but I can say we do meet a few blasts from the past, as well as a few new people.
I am so thrilled to say that the reasons behind the Aether and the Unity are actually explained in this book. I didn't really understand why things were the way they were when I read Under the Never Sky, but thankfully, Through the Ever Night gives a thorough explanation of all that happened in the past. Which is necessary because of the events that happen in this book. There is a great amount of action in various ways, and lots of excitment! A race against time, hugely sad moments, and powerful relationships! It's fantastic!
An awesome sequel, and I am SO excited to read Into the Still Blue, the third and final book in the trilogy! If you loved Under the Never Sky, you definitely need to read Through the Ever Night!
