Under the Never Sky by: Veronica Rossi

My Rating: 2 of 5 Stars

Aria is a teenager in the enclosed city of Reverie. Like all Dwellers, she spends her time with friends in virtual environments, called Realms, accessed through an eyepiece called a Smarteye. Aria enjoys the Realms and the easy life in Reverie. When she is forced out of the pod for a crime she did not commit, she believes her death is imminent. The outside world is known as The Death Shop, with danger in every direction.

As an Outsider, Perry has always known hunger, vicious predators, and violent energy storms from the swirling electrified atmosphere called the Aether. A bit of an outcast even among his hunting tribe, Perry withstands these daily tests with his exceptional abilities, as he is gifted with powerful senses that enable him to scent danger, food and even human emotions.

They come together reluctantly, for Aria must depend on Perry, whom she considers a barbarian, to help her get back to Reverie, while Perry needs Aria to help unravel the mystery of his beloved nephew’s abduction by the Dwellers. Together they embark on a journey challenged as much by their prejudices as by encounters with cannibals and wolves. But to their surprise, Aria and Perry forge an unlikely love – one that will forever change the fate of all who live UNDER THE NEVER SKY

The first book in a captivating trilogy, Veronica Rossi’s enthralling debut sweeps you into an unforgettable adventure.

Beware spoilers ahead!

DNF

This book was recommended to me by my dear GR friend Reynita! Click on her name to read her review.

I had heard about this book a few years ago. Back when it came out Under the Never Sky was extremely popular. At that time dystopian books were popular. I didn’t think much of it at that time. It wasn’t until I got a personal recommendation from Reynita that I considered reading it. I was in the mood for a well done dystopian book with a good romance. Unfortunately I didn’t enjoy it. 

The book begins with Aria and her friends sneaking out. She hasn’t heard from her mother for awhile so Aria assumes the worst and wants to find her. She’s convinced some guys to take her and her best friend Paisley.

Things don’t really go that well. They manage to sneak out but Aria finds out that the guy leading them keeps wanting to touch her. And he tells her that if she doesn’t agree to him he’ll rat her out. Realizing what a terrible position their in Aria and Paisley try to come up with ways to sneak out. 

I couldn’t bring myself to finish this book because of the weird sentences. While the writing style was alright there were odd sounding sentences here-and-there. I had a hard time trying to understand some of these sentences so I DNFed it. I’ve rated this a two star because the plot does sound interesting as is the world they live in.

Overall I did not enjoy this book. I recommend it to fans of dystopian books and anyone who likes a well done romance.

    • Yup he wanted to touch her and basically control her. But he wasn’t the love interest. He was just some random guy she knew.

      It’s okay! It happens to all readers.

      Yes I am current reading No Love Allowed and I’m enjoying it!

      Thank you Victoria 😀
