Summary (from

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

Okay okay let me just start by saying this was wicked awesome. Now, it's not one of my favorites but I think that for a lot of people it would be! I prefer first person POVs to get a better feel on the characters' emotions. Through the Ever Night is 3rd person POV with some juicy emotions mixed in but just not quite my cup of tea.
To start off, I know we all love us some yummy male characters. I'd just like to say I imagined Perry (with his blonde hair and green eyes and wonderfully "wild" thing going on) as a mix between Jamie Campbell Bower (he looked really, really good in the Mortal Instruments trailers . . .) and Alex Pettyfer.
Okay, mostly Alex Pettyfer.

Yeah. Just absorb that face in for a while.

Then there's Roar. Something about him just makes you love him... He's got that seductive dark look going. And he's deliciously devilish. Some people compare him to Ryan Reynolds, but I like to think more of this:
Dominique Capraro ladies and gentlemen.
Orrrrr one of my personal top droolworthy guys:
Francisco Lachowski... 
Wasn't that nice?

Okay, back to the book.
Not only are the characters (Roar especially) superb, but the world is fantastic. Veronica Rossi transports you to this place and then carries you away with her story. The pacing is great- not too slow and not too fast. It's insanely creative. Never boring, never too crazy, and full of twists and turns and a lot of emotional bombs.
Basically it's a great read and I know you'll love it. Check it out!
Thanks for stopping by~
