Under the Never Sky | [Veronica Rossi]

Under the Never Sky

Since she’d been on the outside, she’d survived an Aether storm, she’d had a knife held to her throat, and she’d seen men murdered. This was worse. Exiled from her home, the enclosed city of Reverie, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland - known as The Death Shop - are slim. If the cannibals don’t get her, the violent, electrified energy storms will. She’s been taught that the very air she breathes can kill her. Then Aria meets an Outsider named Perry. He’s wild - a savage - and her only hope of staying alive.

Publisher's Summary

Since she’d been on the outside, she’d survived an Aether storm, she’d had a knife held to her throat, and she’d seen men murdered. This was worse.

Exiled from her home, the enclosed city of Reverie, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland - known as The Death Shop - are slim. If the cannibals don’t get her, the violent, electrified energy storms will. She’s been taught that the very air she breathes can kill her. Then Aria meets an Outsider named Perry. He’s wild - a savage - and her only hope of staying alive.

A hunter for his tribe in a merciless landscape, Perry views Aria as sheltered and fragile - everything he would expect from a Dweller. But he needs Aria’s help too; she alone holds the key to his redemption. Opposites in nearly every way, Aria and Perry must accept each other to survive. Their unlikely alliance forges a bond that will determine the fate of all who live under the never sky.

In her enthralling debut, Veronica Rossi sends readers on an unforgettable adventure set in a world brimming with harshness and beauty.

    Any additional comments?

    This story was unique and interesting and full of adventure. Parts were predictable but I still really enjoyed it. I had a hard time putting it down because I couldn't wait to find out what happened next. Narrator was annoying though. She sounded too old and the voices she gave some of the kids was whiny and just plain silly.

    Story
    "Excellent title. Neat world-building"
    What made the experience of listening to Under the Never Sky the most enjoyable?

    I liked the narrator. And I liked the idea of the story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love Roar. He's funny, strong and it's actively gunning for the main character. It's nice.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I like the scene on the roof where Roar is teaching Aria how to fight and Perry is just angsting over it all.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not so much. It was interesting. But it didn't rock my world.


    Any additional comments?

    The idea of the smart screen was very intriguing. Fancy fancy technology.

    Story
    "Loved it!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    yes.....because I like my friends


    What did you like best about this story?

    The overall story line and the building of the charaters. I liked them and cared about them.


    Have you listened to any of Bernadette Dunne Flagler’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.She was ok, but I felt a younger narrator would have been better suited for this book. I never related her voice to any of the charaters.


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

    It was hard to stop, I always wanted to know what was going to happen next....it never got boring.

    Story
    "Once you start- you can't stop!"
    If you could sum up Under the Never Sky in three words, what would they be?

    First of all, the narrator: usually female narrators, in my experience, are harder to listen to- NOT so in this case. After the initial chapter full of teenage stereotypes, the narrator was perfect. She has a vocal resonance that is easy to listen to. The story grabs you in the first chapter. Action, adventure, intrigue - it's all here and more. Definitely an excellent read/listen.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The concept is intriguing. Realms, pods, the Death Shop. Clever, creative- a wonderful read/listen!

    "Good story, but ending doesn't resolve enough"
    Would you listen to Under the Never Sky again? Why?

    No -- it was fine, but I don't usually listen to audiobooks multiple times.


    Would you recommend Under the Never Sky to your friends? Why or why not?

    Probably not. I enjoyed some of the dystopian aspects of the novel, but it was too much of a romance novel set in a dystopian universe when I was looking for more of a novel about the dystopian universe without the romance being center stage.

    I liked the characters and enjoyed the story, but it very soon became clear that the romance was the central aspect of the story. Honestly, I think that this book needs a sequel -- there was so much that wasn't resolved at the end of the story. And a lot of things about the universe that I thought would get revealed over time (like how it became dystopian) that the author never explained. I found that frustrating because I was interested in those aspects of the story more than the romance.

    A 50-something who loves sci-fi, cozy mysteries, thrillers, an occasional romance, and any genre if it is a good story. And especially if it makes me laugh! No vampires or zombies though - these are NOT sci-fi!

    "A story to get lost in"

    This book reminded me of some of Anne McCaffrey's best. The characters are well developed, then story is intense, and the love story is well-written. Aria's development as a character was intriguiging, and Perry was the perfect hero! I liked the way that the point of view changed between the main characters. The ending had an interesting twist, and left hope for a sequel!

    "Lovely World"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes, depending on who. Its quite fantastical (colorful) so I would only give it to friends I knew appreciated that style.


    What other book might you compare Under the Never Sky to and why?

    Its a little hard to compare it was actually quite different- a nice change.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Bernadette Dunne Flagler?

    The narrator was really the only thing I didn't love about this book - but she is by far not the worst.


    Was Under the Never Sky worth the listening time?

    It was!
