Aria has lived her whole life in the protected dome of Reverie. Her entire world confined to its spaces, she’s never thought to dream of what lies beyond its doors. So when her mother goes missing, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland long enough to find her are slim.

Then Aria meets an outsider named Perry. He’s searching for someone too. He’s also wild – a savage – but might be her best hope at staying alive.

If they can survive, they are each other’s best hope for finding answers

My rating: 3.5/4 stars

Dream Cast: Under the Never Sky Dream Cast

My thoughts:

A good way to describe this book is a much better version of the similar dystopia novel Blood Red Road. Although I was not a fan of that story, I enjoyed this one immensely more!

The plot lines are somewhat similar of these two books. Both take place in a post apocalypse world, where two people that really don’t like each other decide to help one another find a person that was taken. Along the way, they face similar dangers like cannibals and dangers from the environment. Over time, they slowly begin to trust each other and fall in love. The difference is that Under the Never Sky had much better characters with out annoying dialogue and the world that was created was much more intriguing!

I really liked both Perry and Aria except for two small things, but I’ll get to that later! Aria was a strong character who was driven by helping the people that she loved. At first, her actions were because of her need to find her mother, and as her the story progressed her actions were driven by her love for Perry. Perry was also a great character! He had a painful past but still always strived to be good and always put others before himself. I loved seeing him grow from disliking Aria to being kind, caring, and fiercely protective towards her! Now the two little annoying things were that Perry got all teary-eyed one too many times and Aria was annoyingly naïve and rash at the beginning of the story, but both things were fairly easy to get over.

I really loved the other characters too, like Roar and Talon, and I loved Perry’s relationship with both of them! With Roar he had an easy bromance and with Talon he was extremely protective and loving. The ending wasn’t a huge cliffhanger but it definitely left me wanting the next book. I can’t wait for the next book to see how things will go with Perry and Aria and also if they’ll be able to get Talon back!

Overall, this was a very entertaining dystopian story and I can’t wait to read the next one!
