It's been months since Aria learned of her mother's death.

Months since Perry became Blood Lord of the Tides, and months since Aria last saw him.

Now Aria and Perry are about to be reunited. It's a moment they've been longing for with countless expectations. And it's a moment that lives up to all of them. At least at first. Then it slips away. The Tides don't take kindly to former Dwellers like Aria. And the tribe is swirling out of Perry's control. With the Aether storms worsening every day, the only remaining hope for peace and safety is the Still Blue. But does this haven truly exist?

Threatened by false friends 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 sci-fi elements to create a captivating adventure - and a love story as perilous as it is unforgettable.

    Story
    "Different narrator messed me up"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    It's a good idea. A good concept. I bought the first one for my best friend for her birthday. But I felt like it was a struggle to get through this. Also deep bass sounds don't resonate well with me, so I didn't like the male narrator much. I get why, since it was mostly from Perry's POV, but still.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Roar. Always Roar. He has depth and personality and feelings. Aria is still pretty awesome and not just plain and blah and blergh, so thank goodness for that.


    What does Michael Goldstrom bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Um a headache? And probably the correct pronunciations of words with probably crazy spellings or letters. Pronunciations are nice.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not really. Like I said, it was kinda hard to get through.


    Any additional comments?

    All I really remember is that I spent a large part of the time wanting to slap Perry. I'm not down for that much whiny angst.

    Story
    "Better then the first!"

    PJV Quickie: Second in series are scary. Will it be as good as the first? Will it keep pace with the first? Will I love it as much? Through the Ever Night was one of the best second in series that I’ve read in a long time. The pacing, the intrigue and the action were all present, just like the first book. I’m still in love with the Under the Never Sky series, in fact I think I’m enjoying it even more.

    Review: A lot has happened since Aria and Perry first met in Under the Never Sky. Since then, Perry has taken the title of Blood Lord of the Tides and Aria has taken on the responsibility of rescuing Perry’s nephew and searching for clues to the Still Blue. After months of diverging paths, Perry and Aria are reunited but only to a bittersweet and almost painful realization that their happily-ever-after isn’t exactly in the cards. Perry’s tribe will never trust a dweller and if he doesn’t want to be challenged over and over again as Blood Lord, bringing Aria into the tribe as his love-interest isn’t an option. They decide to keep their relationship a secret from the tribe, but having a dweller within the tribe still is still a challenge and Aria is met with distrust and disgust. When problems erupt left and right for Perry, Aria decides it is best to leave with Roar and go in search of what everyone wants…the Still Blue.

    New characters are introduced, new problems arise and new enemies stand in the shadows. Through the Ever Night is an emotional roller-coaster, wrapped up in a dystopian icing, full of angsty goodness and action-packed awesome. I have to say it again and again, you don’t get any better then this. Rossi is a superstar when it comes to penning a young adult trilogy. This second installment delivered even better then the first. Her character development is superb. I fell in love with the characters again, felt emotionally tied to them in that special way that only great authors can achieve and not only that, I’m totally in-love with the secondary characters too! Roar, oh Roar is just wonderful. The relationship between Roar and Aria is superb and Rossi didn’t muddy it up with any hinted love-triangle bull-dinky, or comedic interplay, it was a substantial secondary friendship with true meaningful purpose. Roar was not created to propagate a plot point or entertain, he is there as his own person. The secondary story of Roar and Liv’s romance was also top-notch, if not heart-achingly disastrous to my emotions. It was wonderfully played out and Rossi again, did not pull any punches, she has no problem writing in problem after problem and having her characters make mistakes, without a foreseeable conclusion of said problem, which you don’t find a lot in young adult. There is nothing easy about these books. It kind of scares me to think what is in store for us in the next book.

    Are you convinced yet?

    Read the series. You won’t be disappointed. There were moments in this audiobook where I wanted to scream at the characters, especially Perry. There was also a particular character that I wanted to murder. You can’t get better emotional reactions from a read than this. I think because she switched back and forth between the characters perspectives it actually enhanced the tension, instead of muddying it. Rossi is a truly talented writer, both books in this series are full of action, angst, emotion and ridiculously paced that you are kept on the edge of your seat at all times.

    Narration: Michael Goldstrom is the narrator for Through the Ever Night, and I do think he did a better job then the first narrator of Under the Never Sky, but I wasn’t as impressed as I have been with other narrators. Some of his accents were a bit forced and I didn’t feel a seamless transition into dialogue that I do in some of the great narrators. Goldstrom did a good job, just with a great book, I would hope for a great narrator.

    Recommendations: This is not a stand-alone, it is recommended that you read the first in the series before tackling book two. Fans of the genre, Young Adult Dystopian should be rightly pleased, the book epitomizes the awesome of that genre. The book’s themes are mature and it is recommended for 14+ readership.

    I have a terrible habit of trilogy addiction. I like the story and am really enjoying the characters, the story line is different and setting is well described. Over all a definite thumbs way up!

    "Story! & dev of pers. morals, esp for young adult"

    Interesting premise. Strong continuation of first book, with further growth in main characters and moral developments. I highly recommend this book for teens, though I'm nearly 50 and enjoyed it!

    Perry and Aria, there love is pure, and it is a rare thing...I loved the whole story..and can not wait for book 3!

    I liked the purity of there lives...the ability to go on even in such terrible circumstances...the love they all have for each other and there ability to go on and never give up!


    Have you listened to any of Michael Goldstrom’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but I thought he was excellent, I am not a fan of male narrators, but he was brilliant, and I settled into his reading very quickly....


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Oh this whole series thus far would make an excellent movie... and I think both titles would make excellent tag lines...

    I loved this book, the one thing that did irritate me was the pauses between chapters...they were excessively long...but as a whole this was a wonderful listen, and a great story, it had everything a book needs, love, hate, struggle reward, friendship, loyalty, family and courage...it was fantastic, and I cant wait for #3!

    Not one of my favorites. Listened to this because I had listened to the first book. Entertaining enough. Having said that, I am sure I will preorder the next book when the time comes.

    I loved this book! The characters are wonderful as is the story. It is one of those books that you can't put down. I can't wait for the next book to come out! I am also so glad they changed to another narrator for this book, as the one for the first book sounded too old. This narrator did a pretty good job.

    Story
    "Not really my type of book."
    Would you try another book from Veronica Rossi and/or Michael Goldstrom?

    Probably not. The story was a little to bland for me.


    What could Veronica Rossi have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    It was a step towards the final book in the series, but I think it should have had more of a self contained story - a sub plot - now for the book to make sense you really have to read the third one.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Narration was ok.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment, I had hoped for more, but I know there are people who love this story and love these characters and I think they will enjoy it and look forward to the third book. It just wasn't my type of book.

    "Great story and narration!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I really liked the first book in the series, even though it felt like it was too short. This book had plenty of movement within the story, and was even better than the first!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The author does a good job at making everything seem real in a world that is completely unlike our own. Super human senses and a world where the climate has gone wacko seems entirely believable when phrased and described like she does. I also enjoyed the further development of the two main characters Aria and Perry and their relationship. The author doesn't do the typical "split up/now they hate it each other for some reason that isn't even true" that many authors do in the second book in the series. She doesn't keep it all hunky dory either but it's enough to make me happy. Kudos to one of my favorite books this year!


    What about Michael Goldstrom’s performance did you like?

    Michael Goldstrom has a smooth manly voice. At times he has to narrate as Aria, the main female character and does more than a believable job! (A hard thing for a man to do I must say.)
