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.

    "Thank goodness for the last 5 chapters"

    I had a difficult time connecting to the characters. I thought their emotional interconnectedness was weak and, while the author tried to make the case that someone was devastated by the loss of someone, she barely made the case: you were just supposed to believe it, I guess. The story was believable but, mostly, thin except at the end where things got interesting. I'm glad I stuck it out...I had thought about putting the book down many times before I got there, though.

    I'm a 47 year old mom of two young girls. Just recently discovered young adult fiction, as well as dystopian novels.

    "Slow Starter, but ended up enjoying it."

    I bought the whole trilogy, and then let it sit on my phone for a year before finally giving it another chance! I was completely bored by the first few chapters. Just didn't resonate at all with me. Fortunately, new engaging characters are quickly added, and it became more interesting. Ultimately, I enjoyed the series. Nothing too intense, neither the violence or romance, but enjoyable. I'd recommend it for a teen or adult who likes dystopian fiction. I thought the narrator was perfect for this book.

    "Great Listen"

    I honesty had little hopes for this book after reading the description but still thought I would give it a chance. I absolutely loved it and instantly downloaded the next book.

    this was a good enough book, I enjoyed both the performance and story enough to finish in a relatively short period of time. I will continue the series.

    "Better than anticipated!"
    Would you listen to another book narrated by Bernadette Dunne Flagler?

    I feel that the narrator was mechanical sounding and flat. It could have been worse, but it could have been MUCH better.


    Any additional comments?

    This story was much better than I had anticipated. I think I like the idea of the future with it's technology, etc. but living as primitively as possible. This concept makes the future seem more plausible, but then again, that's just my opinion.

    I feel Veronica Rossi did a great job of developing the storyline, providing some relationship frustration, a huge plot twist at the end, and one hell of a cliffhanger. I'd be crazy not to read the next in the series to find out what happens.

    I did have a hard time picturing a tanned blonde savage as Perry. Every time I tried to imagine a blonde, he was clean cut and clean, but when I incorporated the rest of his description, he had longer dark hair and had that beautiful dirty sheen to him. Oh well, my loss. As far as Aria is concerned, I'm especially excited to see that she has grown into her own, and although super naive at the beginning of the story can now survive on her own.

    I enjoyed all the characters except those few we were meant to dislike, like Soren and his father. Although we haven't heard about Soren since the beginning, I have a feeling he will make an appearance later in the series.

    I was really reading this as a "filler" until one of my preorders came out but I ended up really enjoying it. I will have to read the others!

    "Slow start but it picks up"

    I wasn't sure I was going to like this book in the beginning but as soon as the plot started to form and Aria began to change, I was hooked! I'd like there to be two narrators for the male and female parts in the age group corresponding to the characters.

    "Over the Cliffy Ending"

    meh. i dunno. i might have liked this book more if the performance was better. i think YA books should be narrated by a 20/30something, not by someone who sounds like my grandmother. the abrupt ending forces you to read book 2 if you want any answers & i dunno if i'm that invested in these character to invest in another book.

    "No thanks!!"
    Any additional comments?

    Maybe when I have time I'll read the book rather then listen to it. I made it to chapter 3 and the story seems to be okay but the narrator is awful. Based on the cover and the beginning, this is clearly a young girl yet the narrator sounds old and the voice she uses for the guys is so stupid. I'll pass on this audiobook.
