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.

Just a book fool.
Yes, depending on who. Its quite fantastical (colorful) so I would only give it to friends I knew appreciated that style.
Its a little hard to compare it was actually quite different- a nice change.
The narrator was really the only thing I didn't love about this book - but she is by far not the worst.
I would add more suspense and I would describe certain things more. Without it you lose emotional attachment with main character.
I see it being made into the cheap TV series on scifi channel.
Performance was really well done. Voice is easy to listen to, and is able to do different characters really well. Story is difficult to stop listening to - I'll admit that it really took me by surprise.
Highly recommend overall.
This is by far one of the best if not the best audiobook I have listened to.
I think the most memorable moments are the poetic ones. When the author talks about living "under the never sky" for example, that one's my favourite.And of course the beautiful love story, you cannot prepare for all the feels.
Perry, without a doubt. He is truly an incredible person. I love how cautious he is when they meet. He doesn't trust her and they're supposed to be enemies, still he saves her life and keeps her safe. He is a person that you have to warm up to. At first he might seem cold and distant, but the more you get to know him the more you understand him. He would do anything and everything for the people he loves. He never looks down on anyone and he has the biggest heart. He is so beautiful, on both inside and outside. I sincerely wish he wasn't a fictional character because I have fallen in love with him.
Absolutely! I couldn't put it down! I was up 'til after midnight listening to this book.
I pity all the people on this earth who haven't read this book, my heart goes out to all of you. You have no idea what you're missing out on.
I had a hard time getting into this book and it's because of the narrator. She had this old, wavering tone to her voice, which really didn't fit with the main characters.
