Audiobook Review: Through the Ever Night by Veronica Rossi

Author: Veronica Rossi

Release Date: January 8th, 2013
Publisher: HarperCollins / Harper Audio
Narrator: Michael Goldstrom
4 Stars - I really liked it

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.

Under the Never Sky is a great original dystopian series.  This second novel, Through the Ever Night continues to entertain my imagination just as the first book did.  I love the mix of sci-fi and post-apocalyptic aspects of the of the world they live in.  The contrast between the realms and the outside, the different environments and the people.  The societies are so different, but they are still human beings.  They still struggle to survive.  
Perry and Aria are briefly reunited, then they must part ways and go on separate journeys. During Aria's journey she discovers true friendship and an unlikely Ali. Perry struggles to prove his worthiness as Blood Lord of the tides.  Even though Perry and Aria are separated throughout most of this story, I believe it brought them closer to each other in the end.       

The author leaves so many open roads for the third book.  I want to know more about Cinder, and his story. I want Perry and Aria to finally be happy together! I wish this book, had been longer.  I also wish it had a different narrator.  The monotone drone of his voice made it hard to concentrate sometimes.  Great series, I will definitely read (or listen) to the next book as soon as it is released!
