Total books read: Two

General feedback:
I have had a really busy week, a combination of house improvements and an assessment at work to study for, so I have not managed to read as much as I had hoped.
I am keeping my fingers crosses for a quieter and more productive (reading) week.
In her sign up post Julianna shares the reasons why she has so many unfinished series.
Into The Still Blue by Veronica Rossi
In to the still blueTheir 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.

One of the best things about reading a series late is that you get to avoid all of the angst associated with waiting for the next instalment. The very next day after finishing Through the Ever Night, I dove straight back in to Aria and Perry’s world.
The Third and final instalment of the Under The Never Sky Trilogy was everything that I had hoped it would be. It managed to maintain the energy and pace of the earlier books and develop the story further, while still remaining true to the characters we have grown to love.
I particularly enjoyed the interactions between the “Savages” and “Dwellers” which not only highlighted how far our our protagonists had been changed by their experiences since Under The Never Sky, but also showed them utilising their experiences (particularly those from Through The Ever Night), to aid the unity of their group.
Verdict: An excellent end to a fantastic series!
