Blurb:
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.
 
 
I read this ARC immediately after I finished Under the Never Sky because I needed more Perry and Aria. This book has them apart for most of it but the moments when they are together are just fantastic. I think I liked this one as much as if not more than Under the Never Sky.
 
In this book we are finally introduced to Liv (if you haven't already read the novella Roar & Liv), she's tough and caring and pure awesome. I admit I hated her when we were first introduced simply because I adore Roar, but she quickly grew on me. We are also reintroduced to Soren in this one and I admit I didn't hate him nearly as much as in the first book.
 
This book made me laugh at parts and then had me crying my eyes out at others. This novel is just one big emotional roller coaster and anybody who has been lucky enough to read this book already knows exactly what I'm talking about.
 
As with Under the Never Sky, the plot never slows down and the story keeps you sucked in. The actions as well as the emotions in this installment are intense. You just do not have the chance to become bored with this book.
 
So I'm sure you're asking, Is this book a great sequel to Under the Never Sky? Yes! This book doesn't fall into the sophomore slump that many second books in series find themselves in. Veronica Rossi's writing continues to be amazing and she really pulls off both Aria's and Perry's POV flawlessy by giving them each a unique voice.
 
I will be anxiously awaiting the next installment in this amazing series. I cannot wait to find out what happens next with Perry and Aria and all of their friends.
