Book Description:
It's been months since Aria last saw Perry. Months since Perry was named Blood Lord of the Tides, and Aria was charged with an impossible mission. Now, finally, they are about to be reunited. But their reunion is far from perfect. The Tides don't take kindly to Aria, a former Dweller. And with the worsening Aether storms threatening the tribe's precarious existence, Aria begins to fear that leaving Perry behind might be the only way to save them both.

Threatened by false friends, hidden enemies, 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 dystopian elements to create a captivating love story as perilous as it is unforgettable.

My Thoughts: 

I’m in love with Under the Never Sky. I’ve been itching to read the second book after finishing the first one. Now, that I’ve got a copy – I was dreading the second book syndrome. I have high expectations for this one.  Well, after reading it in just one day. This book is perfection! Yep, I adore this book immensely.

The story started where the first one had left off.  Perry is now a Blood Lord and Aria is on an impossible task.  What I like about the world building is…’s realistic and well thought off. The world Rossi created is colorful, unique and frightening.  A world in chaos and a land divided by Blood Lords, I felt the emotions of the people, especially Perry’s people, The Tides.  I can feel their hunger for survival, team work and love for each other.  Rossi made a story that is addictive! As I was reading the book, I felt the emotional ride. 

The character building is remarkable. They are memorable and mature. I felt their growth, especially Perry. He is actually my favorite character from the book.  He’s just a boy technically but he’s mature in so many ways. I love how he thinks not only for himself but for the Tides as well. His responsibility as a Blood Lord plays a huge deal in the book; he is caught in between Aria and The Tides. Choosing will be his great task. Aria is my second favorite. She’s brave, intelligent and self-less. I felt her emotions during her stay in Perry’s. How she was trying to fit in where people constantly want her out. I love how both Perry and Aria share a common goal; they are so perfect for each other. Roar and Liv’s complicated relationship gave this book some extra twists. I was mad at Liv at first, how can she do that to Roar! Well I can’t tell you what she did exactly. I can’t post spoilers here –haha-

Love versus Responsibility and Forbidden love are some of the elements that gave this book some edge. Who will Perry choose? Who can he trust? You have to pick up this book to find out.

The romance angle is satisfying. It’s different from the first book.  This book gave me many knee-melting experiences from the two couples. Yes! Two couples.  This is why the book is so good!

Over all, this book is thrilling! Readers who love adventure, romance and a bit of mystery, this book is for you. 

I give this book, 5 Aether Storming Whales.
