Title: Into the Still Blue
Series: Under the Never Sky #3
Publication: January 28, 2013
The earth-shattering conclusion to Veronica Rossi's "masterpiece" Under the Never Sky trilogy and sequel to the New York Times bestselling Through the Ever Night (Examiner.com).
Their love and their leadership have been tested. Now it's time for Perry and Aria to unite the Dwellers and the Outsiders in one last desperate attempt to bring balance to their world.
The race to the Still Blue has reached a stalemate. Aria and Perry are determined to find this last safe-haven from the Aether storms before Sable and Hess do-and they are just as determined to stay together.
Meanwhile, time is running out to rescue Cinder, who was abducted by Hess and Sable for his unique abilities. And when Roar returns to camp, he is so furious with Perry that he won't even look at him, and Perry begins to feel like they have already lost.
Out of options, Perry and Aria assemble a team to mount an impossible rescue mission-because Cinder isn't just the key to unlocking the Still Blue and their only hope for survival, he's also their friend. And in a dying world, the bonds between people are what matter most.
In this final book in her stunning Under the Never Sky trilogy, Veronica Rossi raises the stakes to their absolute limit and brings her epic love story to an unforgettable close.
Time is running out for Aria and Perry to find a way to safely transport everyone to the Still Blue. The aether is changing, growing more dangerous every day. Aria, Perry and a select group know they must journey to face their enemy to get transportation and retrieve Cinder from Sable's grasp but with as little bloodshed as possible. Once they arrive to their destination things seem to go smoothly that is until much begins to go horribly wrong. In this book, relationships and alliances get tested. Trust must be earned and a leader must surface to rally the Dwellers and Outsiders for the survival of all. Will a sacrifice be the key to accomplishing it all? A new life, a new beginning or will all be lost?
I liked getting to learn more about Aria's background and how she came into having her gift of hearing. She goes through some much in this book from betrayal to uncovering a secret from her past. Roar's not his chipper self and he misses Liv. He doesn't understand how Perry can seem so unaffected but he can't see past his pain, so he doesn't realize the struggle Perry has with being a leader and mourning the death of his sister. He feels the need to be strong for everyone because having a meltdown could cause chaos. I liked the love story between Perry and Aria, she's more open about how she feels for him and that's sweet to see. Now, one character caused much havoc in this book with his sick, twisted ideas about the world he envisions....that would be Sable. He's not an honorable character and didn't like him but he made a good adversary for the main characters. He knew just how to manipulate them to get what he wants, well everything but Aria but he has plans to remedy that. I liked how the story moves throughout and there is tons of action and betrayal going on in this one. Aria and Perry must learn to trust themselves and their ability to lead this new joint community of Dwellers and Outsiders and journey on Into the Still Blue. Overall, I'm satisfied with ending though one character exit from the book saddens me but I understand why. This is a good book about love, family and friendship.
