Through the Ever Night by Veronica Rossi Review

"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 first. 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."

I rarely do this but I must talk about the cover. HOT! Although quite inaccurate. Perry's hair, according to the book, is long and woven into braids (I believe, I'm not sure on the braids part). Where's his Blood Lord necklace? Where's his bow and arrow (although it doesn't have to in the cover, because Perry is mentioned no carrying his bow and arrow)?

Through the Ever Night will make readers go *Facepalm*. Yup, there's some slap-this-character-in-the-face-then-dump-their-bodies-into-the-river moments. Overall, Through the Ever Night makes me want to pump my fist up towards the never blue sky. (Yes, pun intended). Through the Ever Night is the sequel to the hot new book, Under the Never Sky. If you haven't read Under the Never Sky, then I suggest you to read Under the Never Sky before trying here.

The beginning start off awesome. I was like "Eeee!" and "Ohmygod. Ohmygod." I love how the beginning opens up with the rekindled romance between Aria and Perry. (And then, of course, something will go very, very wrong; I smelt it.)

The middle part of the book is so what-in-the-world-is-this-author-doing. There's random characters popping up and room for plenty of wondering. I have a difficult time of pasting one event to another chapter because there's so much rushing in this little amount of pages.

The ending is just as wonderful as the beginning. I see how the characters end up in a worse, yet also better position than they were in the beginning. (Whoops, big spoiler.) Anyway, the ending leaves plenty of room for questions and mysterious plots. (There's room for revenge). (Great, now the theme song of Revenge is coming on.)

Aria and Perry aren't very bright in this novel. Aria, I get that you're all under stress and everything, but Perry? What in the world are you doing? So what? That happens and this happens. You can do it; you had before. You freaking move on, Perry. Life goes on and you need to follow.

Rating: Three Point Five out of Five
