Under the Never Sky Review

Under the Never Sky

Since she'd been on the outside, she'd survived an Aether storm, she'd had a knife held to her throat, and she'd seen men murdered. This was worse.

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. If the cannibals don't get her, the violent, electrified energy storms will. She's been taught that the very air she breathes can kill her. 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. Opposites in nearly every way, Aria and Perry must accept each other to survive. Their unlikely alliance forges a bond that will determine the fate of all who live under the never sky.

What I Loved
Overall Review
What an awesome book, an all around amazing storyline with fantastic characters as well. The story was fast paced and never slowed down, something was always going on and happening. I'm so glad I finally got to read it, I wish I would have read it earlier it was just that awesome. I'm looking forward to the next book, I want more!!
Aria: For starters, I love her name, I have always been a fan of A names, to me they sound really pretty. Her actual character personality I freaking loved! I was surprised by how strong she was, I was expecting her to be this whiny and weak character, but nope not a peep out of her. I love her ability to adapt and her will to survive.
Peregrine aka Perry: He is my favorite character type, the dark brooding bad boy that has many issues and just needs the right girl to love him. Loved his cool exterior, but his soft interior that he slowly revealed to Aria.
Not the typical love at first sight, thankfully, but the more realistic falling for them over time. The romance is on the side, but not the main storyline. Just the right amount of romance to add to the story, but not overwhelm it with straight romance.
Aria gets the best of both worlds, she got to do the whole virtual reality stuff but then she gets to know the real life outside excitements. Adding the increased senses to the human evolution is just genius and made this book even better.
A New Trilogy
Aria discovers a lot of things both good and bad about the pods and herself and I'm looking forward to seeing what grand adventures and issues Aria and Perry are going to come across in the next book.

Didn't Like
Nothing, besides that the book had to come to an end and I can't have the next one in my hands now

Good to know! I had picked it up about 6 months ago and read only a little. I think I maybe read the first chapter and it didn't grab me so I moved it to the side and never picked it back up.

I loved everything about Perry! I can't wait for the second book as well.
