Review: Into the Still Blue by Veronica Rossi

Image & description from
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.

My Thoughts:
I took my time with this one.  Knowing it was the last in the series, I wanted to savor every second with Perry & Aria.  This book was so action packed I had to stop & take a breather.  My heart was pounding out of my chest!  With the fate of so many resting on their shoulders, Aria & Perry have insurmountable obstacles to over come.  I ached as they made sacrifices that seemed unbearable.  This story is a testament to the human spirit.  When all fight, negotiations & even hope were lost, they didn't give up.  Just like the other two books in this series, the characters are amazing.  Even the villainous among them were spectacular.  I have only stumbled upon a few dystopian series that I loved and this one is my all time favorite!  Relationships take time and need to evolve which is exactly what Rossi does expertly.  The world she created just envelopes you.  While I am sad to see the series come to an end, I hope one day we'll get to read about Aria & Perry's future.  Maybe a spin off series will come along.
Jump into this series ASAP!  You will not be disappointed.

  1. Roar is my favorite character. I would love more from him. I thought Veronica did a great job with the ending of this trilogy. I do think it needed an epilogue, and it didn't capture me as much as the second book (probably b/c I needed more Roar, LOL). Glad you enjoyed it! Funny that you call it dystopian. While it kind of falls under that post-apocolyptic trend, since it's about a world that has basically been destroyed, I also think it's kind of sci fi.

  2. I love this series and you're right, it was an amazing finale. I would read any spin off series in a heart beat!
