Synopsis :

It's been months since Aria learned of her mother's death.

Months since Perry became Blood Lord of the Tides, and months since Aria last saw him.

Now Aria and Perry are about to be reunited. It's a moment they've been longing for with countless expectations. And it's a moment that lives up to all of them. At least, at first.

Then it slips away. The Tides don't take kindly to former Dwellers like Aria. And the tribe is swirling out of Perry's control. With the Aether storms worsening every day, the only remaining hope for peace and safety is the Still Blue. But does this haven truly exist? Threatened by false friends and powerful temptations, Aria and Perry wonder, Can their love survive through the ever night?

In this second book in her spellbinding Under the Never Sky trilogy, Veronica Rossi combines fantasy and sci-fi elements to create a captivating adventure—a love story as perilous as it is unforgettable.

"We lose and lose, but we're still here. Shaking in place, afraid of doing something. I'm tired of settling for this because I don't know if something better exists. It has to. What point is there otherwise? I can do something about it now. And I will."

At last, after all this months since Through The Ever Night was released, I finally found a great reading place to read it. The story continues as Aria discovered that her  Mom is already dead and with Peregrine being the Blood Lord, they seek to pursue in reaching the Still Blue, that it's not just a myth or some fictitious place someone invented and blurted into the public.

What I liked most about this series is the alternate point of views of Peregrine and Aria. There are only few books that I actually read same as this, but within the writing style of Veronica Rossi, I can definitely point out that it is remarkable. You don't get much with a sequel that drifts you swiftly with another point of view to another but Through The Ever Night nailed it!

Roar and Liv also made a cue on here. And everytime I remember those, it brings pain in my heart. I felt what Roar have seen the day he saw Liv with another man. I felt how awful it was to see the one he loves being taken away in front of his eyes. More than that, it is so difficult to bring oneself up to move on without the person that is essentially important. This is one of the numerous reason why I love this sequel. The way Veronica Rossi can describe how much it kills a person to see the one he loves vanish is very striking.

Another thing, on this sequel it officially blazed up the differences between the Tribes. For me, I find it fascinating to see how these Tribes have their own way of survival and to rule it at the same time, most importantly how they can foresee the events that may happen once the Aether arrives on them. I see their strategic ways, whether it is deadly or not, I loved every single of it.

Through The Ever Night is a resounding sequel. The challenges of every characters were very astounding and profoundly unpredictable. Even from the start of the book, it already blazed another form of spark between Aria and Perry. More than that, as the story moves on, alternating the perspectives of Aria and Perry, it delivers a uniquely form of events with their feelings combining with the raging Aether. Doubles the fun, right? I was in love with the characters even more because of this sequel.
