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 energy storms will. 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 come together to survive. Their unlikely alliance forges a bond that will determine the fate of all who live under the never sky.
Review of UNDER THE NEVER SKY
This book just didn’t do it for me. I didn’t understand a lot of things about the dystopian world and the author didn’t explain. I thought the main character was annoying and a little whiny. I like Perry, the main guy I guess you could call him, because he was more realistic and to the point. I thought their relationship was weird as well. At first they were just kinda there and didn’t even think about each other much and then all of a sudden BAM! They’re in love. I just didn’t find it very realistic.
The plot however, wasn’t too bad. It wasn’t the more brilliant thing I’ve read but I didn’t want to throw the book across the room which is a good sign. The world where they live was pretty cool but I felt like things could have been explained better sometimes. Some things that happened were really obvious too which made the book not as fun to read.
All in all it wasn’t too bad so 3 out of 5.
