“What I was trying to say,” he whispered, “is that I see you in everything. There isn’t a word for you that means enough, because you’re everything to me.”

This is the third Young Adult science fiction book in the Under the Never Sky trilogy by Veronica Rossi. Join Perry and Aria and the cast of characters on the tumultuous journey to discover the elusive Still Blue and save their people. Will their love also stand the test? 

“We all have the potential to do terrible things. But we also have the potential to overcome our mistakes.”

This book had a few beautiful gems, more of the romance I loved in the first two books, and was all around a great way to wrap up the series. Most third installments of YA dystopian trilogies end in a way that makes me want punch walls down and shatter glass (you might know exactly which books I’m talking about). However, I have no complaints about this one, except for (hypocritical me) it being a little too… easy on the eyes. But I don’t want to spoil anything.

Also, it was short. Which was actually awesome. I didn’t want another end-of-series book to be a long, drawn-out wrapping up of all the series’ events (*coughHarryPottercough*), and it definitely didn’t disappoint. I blew through this book and didn’t find anything terribly annoying, if not just unexplained or glanced over. The science fiction part of it (which is borderline fantasy) was easy to understand and relate to, unlike other books I’ve read.

Yes, I am on a Young-Adult-fiction-reading kick, but bear with me. YA is easy for me to relate to as a twenty-something. It’s light, some of the time (moreso lately with recent releases) a fantastic and beautiful romance, and closer to my age than the vast world of Adult Fiction (which you often have no idea what you’re getting. Ah, if only there were a “twenties” genre. But then, what would be the point of that?). Also, it generally stays more appropriate than Adult Fiction if you’re looking to stay away from more sexualized writing.

I would highly recommend reading this series, starting with Under the Never Sky.

  1. I loved this series, but I kept thinking something different would happen with C. Trying to avoid spoilers here, but I was disappointed with that!

    • OHH, I know!! I was surprised by that as well. I should’ve mentioned something about it, but yeah – hard not to spoil anything.
