Book Review: Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi

****--4 Stars.
Publication: January 2012
Length: 389 pages
Book Description:  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.

My Review: I was a little confused at the first with all the different groups and terminology, but once I got the hang of it, it was a very fun, interesting book. Such a unique take on how the future could be.

I really enjoyed how the characters names really meant something and represented who they are.

Aria was so naive, and as a friend pointed out, the reader seemed to grow with her as the book progressed, which is really clever writing.

Content: a few instances of language; violence; an intimate scene with no details given.
