Through the Ever Night - Book Review

Through the Ever Night (Under the Never Sky #2)
by Veronica Rossi

What is it about:
It's been months since Aria learned of her mother's death.

Months since Perry became Blood Lord of the Tides, and months since Aria last saw him.

Now Aria and Perry are about to be reunited. It's a moment they've been longing for with countless expectations. And it's a moment that lives up to all of them. At least, at first.

Then it slips away. The Tides don't take kindly to former Dwellers like Aria. And the tribe is swirling out of Perry's control. With the Aether storms worsening every day, the only remaining hope for peace and safety is the Still Blue. But does this haven truly exist?

Threatened by false friends and powerful temptations, Aria and Perry wonder, Can their love survive through the ever night?

What did I think of it:
This is a nice read.

I really enjoyed the first book in this series and was looking forward to reading this book.

It left me feeling a little bit underwhelmed.

There's been this big set up in the first book of a major storyline that I was sure would dominate Through the Ever Night. Instead there's a lot of blah at first about things I thought were taking too much time. Had I been Aria I would have been focused on other things than she is focusing on. I felt like kicking sense into both her and Perry. They really got on my nerves, and I actually was starting to like side characters more than I liked Aria and Perry.

Luckily finally Aria went on to do the things I thought she needed to be doing and from there on out the story got better. I still wanted to kick our heroic duo for being gullible, but that's something I want to do to a lot of characters in Young Adult books.

Overall I enjoyed the book, but not as much as the first book in this trilogy. I will most probably read the last book if I get my trotters on it, but I won't hunt it down.

Why should you read it:
It's a nice Dystopian YA read.

I am sorry this book is not as good as the first Sullivan, I hope the third redeems the series when you get to reading it.
