The race to the Still Blue has reached a stalemate. Aria and Perry are determined to find this last safe haven from the Aether storms before Sable and Hess do--and they are just as determined to stay together.
Within the confines of a cave they're using as a makeshift refuge, they struggle to reconcile their people, Dwellers and Outsiders, who are united only in their hatred of their desperate situation. Meanwhile, time is running out to rescue Cinder, who was abducted by Hess and Sable for his unique abilities. Then Roar arrives in a grief-stricken fury, endangering all with his need for revenge.
Out of options, Perry and Aria assemble an unlikely team for an impossible rescue mission. Cinder isn't just the key to unlocking the Still Blue and their only hope for survival--he's also their friend. And in a dying world, the bonds between people are what matter most.
In this final book in her earth-shattering Under the Never Sky trilogy, Veronica Rossi raises the stakes to their absolute limit and brings her epic love story to an unforgettable close.

The final book of Under the Never Sky trilogy is fantastic. Not just a simple words as this but as far as I can reach out my words into Veronica Rossi *i hope so*, this is the exact word that i can say the day/night i finished it. Continuing with Aria and Peregrine's journey to seek the Still Blue, upon slowly reaching it, they are forced to face insurmountable problems in which made them bounded and stronger than before.
Into the Still Blue totally accumulates the events and important points that happened on the first and second book that results into a complete puzzle. You see, that's what I liked on this series, it feels like I am seeking for every piece of the puzzle to see how it will solve or connect into another point that will reach to the Still Blue. Even from the start, it unnoticably brought me into another place full of disaster. In the midst of it, Aria and Peregrine managed to handle themselves and also their feelings. But, of course, before that "ending" they showed fortitude on unexpected ways.
The characters at some point *I think* became irrational in their decisions that leads into another problem with higher risks on solving it, but as I was reading it, I see the point of their persuasion.
1.) Peregrine as the Blood Lord, ruling his tribe in such a young age.
2.) Aria, deciding to continue her life without her mother and suddenly meets her father in the middle of it.
3.) Roar, losing Liv and rooting for revenge on Sable.
At those instances, I see their points of patience growing thin. This is the advantages that I realized at the end of this series, it is the flaws of the characters that makes them exceptional.
Into the Still Blue also created an (almost) omnipotent character. Sable. I swear I really hate him. He was like the most persistent and menacing character in the series. It felt like the story built up another barricade for Aria and Peregrine but most specially to Roar and Liv. To be honest even in Through the Ever Night, the character of Sable just explode out like a volcano full of molten lava making all people affected with it. That's the thing that I mainly notice in this character. Much as I hated Sable, I loved that Veronica Rossi created a character such like him that spiced up the series.
In addition to this, the setting of the series are very engaging even though they gradually steps into another one. I guess for me, I find it enjoyable to read to travel into another place without any limits.
Reading the last book may seem sad and can make you feel nostalgic with the previous books but, Into Still Blue definitely spread out the series into a highly fantastic and unexpected ending. It also transformed the characters without any vulnerabilities and solutions that are made are astounding.
