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.

Since I'm going to post my review of Under the Never Sky Series' last installment, Into the Still Blue, it doesn't feel right not to post my review of the first book.

In the world of Under the Never Sky, peoples are divided into these buildings (or was it domes?) called Pods. Aria had always been living peacefully in one of them, the one called Reverie. But then, an accident happen. Aria was exiled from Reverie, forcing her into the world outside her sanctuary. With dangerous Aether swirling above her head, and an Outsider holding her as a captive, Aria is determined to find her missing mother, the one family she had left.

Under the Never Sky was the second... or third? book that I've actually read. If you had read my 'about me' you'd know that I just started to like reading in 2012. Other books that I read before this are written in first person, and it felt really weird reading this. The first time I actually read third person POVs. Veronica Rossi had this different (in a positive way) style of third person. It was told by a thid person narrator without going too deep into the character's minds (it's really difficult to describe it) compared to the first person povs I read, it felt like hovering on the survace. But that is one of the points! It was different that it felt like a new fresh air. The moment you passed the first chapter, you. Can't. Stop. The pace was perfect! not too fast and not too slow. And the romance! we could see how it builds up. No insta-love or insta-attraction, Peregrine (the male protagonist slash detested outsider) and Aria lived in a different world and they disliked each other at first.

Aria couldn't do much to defend herself against the outside world, but she wanted to learn. Aria is the type of heroines that I love, the ones who preferred to fight. Peregrine is such an interesting and cool name by the way, even though his nickname was Perry (like Perry the Platypus), and I have no doubt about him even from the first. He's strong, rough, but inside he's really caring and so damn sweet. And then here comes my other favorite character, Perry's and soon, Aria's friend Roar. Yes, his name is cute and so is his personality. Definitely the type of guy I wanted to marry (LOL).

I don't know what else I could say about this book. It was amazing. Super recommended to you who loves Dystopian novels.

5 EYES OPEN (5/5)
