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.

    "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!

    "Can't wait to start the next one."

    Predictable, but still great. I love the story and characters. I can't wait to start the next book in this series.

    "I didn't expect much"

    I don't expect great literature but I do expect an author to know how to make a story flow. I should cut her some slack because I guess this is her first book but the author spent too time on trivial things and then rushed the actual story line. She did not do well at developing the character relationships. I did listen to all 3 books and it never got better. She does not know how to handle the flow of a story. I was just not impressed at all.

    "Both Rossi and Flagler are great storytellers"
    If you could sum up Under the Never Sky in three words, what would they be?

    Fascinating new world


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

    The closest comparison I can make is to The After Light Series, by Cameo Renae. Both Rossi and Renae weave totally believable stories within worlds beyond imagination. Yet, both authors have the talent to make such worlds believable.


    What about Bernadette Dunne Flagler’s performance did you like?

    Flagler is a consummate storyteller. Within the first few words, she skillfully immerses me into the story. Like all talented storytellers, Flagler manages to disappear until there is only me and the story.


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

    Yes, and I almost did.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a phenomenal book, and Ms. Flagler was a perfect narrator to bring the story to life.

    "It was a good book, I was just looking..."

    it was good but it just didn't capture my attention, I don't know why. I kept listening to other audible books and then coming back. It is an interesting concept, it's a interesting book. I think maybe I was just in the mood for something a little more. i will definitely give this book a go if this is what your looking for.

    "Loved this first book; the next two books were ok"

    I loved this book. It had a unique world and storyline. All of the characters were very likable. I've read a lot of books in this genre, but this one seemed unique and easily held my attention. I recommend it!

    It's part of a trilogy - the second and third were good and worth finishing, but they were not as good as this first one. Maybe because I had already been introduced to the world, so it wasn't as new and interesting to me. But the first is great!

    "Superb Dystopian Fantasy, memorable narration"
    Where does Under the Never Sky rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is among the top 2 audiobook series i've listened to and Bernadette Dunne Flagler is among my favorite 3 narrators (Davina Porter/Outlander series and Wanda McCaddon/The Seamstress being the other two). Under the Never Sky narrative is a perfect balance of heart and mind with aspects of sci-fi, dystopian, fantasy and romance. These characters really come to life and you want to hang on to every word.


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

    The obvious YA Dystopian trilogies are Hunger Games and Divergent. Ironically, i liked Hunger Games trilogy on film better than the narrated books. Divergent trilogy is much better in the books (nice narrator too). UNDER THE NEVER SKY could make a superb film in the right hands, but i don't know if they'll be bringing this out soon. The book, however, is quite cinematic, so i am seeing the scenes vividly as the book is being narrated.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The heart-throb scene on the rooftop is probably my favorite!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    On the rooftop and also in the treehouse... both romantic scenes...


    Any additional comments?

    i've heard this book series a dozen times or more and still love it. Veronica Rossi is an excellent writer and i hope to read (or hear) more books by her! Haven't heard any other books (except 1 and 3 in this trilogy) narrated by Bernadette Flagler but i'd listen any day, she's outstanding!

    "So good!"

    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.
