{YA Review} Into the Still Blue (Under the Never Sky #3) by Veronica Rossi

{YA Review} Into the Still Blue (Under the Never Sky #3) by Veronica Rossi

Into the Still Blue (Under the Never Sky, #3)
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. (Blurb via Goodreads)
{Details} Hardcover, 392 pages. Published January 28th 2014 by HarperCollins. Source: library

{Rating} 4/5 -- I really liked it!

"Aria lurched upright, the echo of gunshots ringing in her ears." (page 1, line 1)
Grief and loss and sacrifice and hope. I found Into the Still Blue a satisfying conclusion to the Under the Never Sky trilogy. I really enjoyed the first two books, Under the Never Sky and Through the Ever Night, my reviews are here and here. If you haven't read Rossi's books yet, go and do so, you won't be disappointed.

Nothing has ever been easy for Perry or Aria and that doesn't change. They have Hess and Sable and the aether to battle against and the fight is grueling and the price they pay is high. And that's all I'm going to say - go read it!

Perry and Aria are still one of my favorite couples, and finally, finally, in book three, we get to see them loving each other in the open.
"What brought you out here, Aria?" he asked.
She looked up, right into his eyes. "I needed to find you."
"I know," he said. "The second I left you, I felt the same way."
(page 79)
"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."
(page 277)

I'm sad that the Under the Never Sky trilogy has ended but I eagerly look forward to seeing what Veronica Rossi comes up with next.
