It's been months since Aria last saw Perry. Months since Perry was named Blood Lord of the Tides, and Aria was charged with an impossible mission. Now, finally, they are about to be reunited. But their reunion is far from perfect. The Tides don't take kindly to Aria, a former Dweller. And with the worsening Aether storms threatening the tribe's precarious existence, Aria begins to fear that leaving Perry behind might be the only way to save them both. Threatened by false friends, hidden enemies, and powerful temptations, Aria and Perry wonder, Can their love survive through the ever night?

I am embarrassed.  I started Through the Ever Night knowing I loved Under the Never Sky.  However, I couldn't remember one detail about it (it has been a long time since I had read it). I spent the first few chapters trying to remember what in the world this series was about.  (As a side note, I must have read Shatter Me at the same time because I had the details of the two books completely mixed up.) 

All that aside, this book was fabulous. The author has created such a dramatic narrative, it never lacks in the passion and "Oh my goodness!" department.  Aria and Perry are brought together only to be ripped apart again.  I spent most of the book wondering where the author was going with this- would Aria and Perry find other people, resulting in the dreaded love triangle (love rhombus)? I love the way that the author handled the time that Aria and Perry spent apart.

Roar.  Oh poor Roar.  I feel like I need to give him a giant hug.  Roar is really put through the emotional ringer in this book.  Aria and Roar glow much closer in this book- it is sweet to see such a caring relationship that isn't part of a love triangle.  I applaud the author for not cheapening their relationship.  

If you haven't picked up the Under the Never Sky series- you should absolutely do it.  There is no sophomore slump with Through the Ever Night.  It breaks the lame second book mold by being just as good- perhaps even better than the first book.  I think this series is quickly developing into one of my favorites!

  1. I had a hard time remembering stuff from Under the Never Sky, too. I always do that with sequels, though. Apparently I read too much because I never can remember stuff in the beginning. Thankfully most authors give little reminders all the way. Great review! I enjoyed this book, too.
