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.

its just so annoying and impossible to get past a narrator who is the voice of a teenage girl but sounds more like a 50 yo smoker. im not even sure what happened in the book. i could only concentrate on her voice. also, the romance was really weak and the "action" was lacking. boring.
This is a shameless knock off of The Hunger Games but still an interesting read and the same sort of fun as in the hunger games. If you liked Hunger games you will like this.
I am a book junkie...I read and enjoy a variety of stories, so please don't "define me" by one book or review! :)
I thoroughly enjoyed this dystopian fantasy. This is compelling writing with vividly-drawn settings and characters which fill out this well-paced and developed story. I really enjoyed the characters and became attached to them throughout the course of the book...the relationships between the characters and the bond of love that grows between the two main characters will draw you right in. Rossi's writing keeps your attention through the whole book, even though it's not told in first-person perspective, which always has an advantage in keeping a reader thoroughly engrossed, (at least in my experience). Good narration, suited the story and characters. I am eagerly awaiting the sequel! Check this one out if you haven't already!
