Review: Through the Ever Night by Veronica Rossi
Through the Ever Night by Veronica Rossi
January 8, 2013
Threatened by false friends, hidden enemies, and powerful temptations, Aria and Perry wonder, Can their love survive through the ever night?
This is one of the most well-crafted book series that I’ve read in a long time. The imagery and beautiful descriptions take readers to a whole new and terrifying world where death is imminent for anyone with the Aether becoming even more dangerous than usual in the second installment. Rossi brings back our favorite characters like Aria, Perry, and Roar and raises the stakes even higher for them and their futures. I really want to do justice to THROUGH THE EVER NIGHT in this review, but that’s going to be pretty tough considering just how wonderfully gorgeous it truly is.
The only way to describe my experience while reading: ALL THE FEELS. I don’t think there is a single emotion that I didn’t experience as I read Aria and Perry’s adventures. Anything you can possibly imagine happening to both Perry and Aria does happen. That basically explains the whole book. There’s also LOTS of Roar in THROUGH THE EVER NIGHT. Lots and lots of him. I’m sure everyone who read UNDER THE NEVER SKY will be happy about that part!
Then there’s the romance. If you thought it was steamy and full of sparks and lightning in UTNS, just wait til TTEN. Yes, Perry and Aria can kick up the sexual tension a notch higher than before! BUT while there’s lots of chemistry between them, they still aren’t without their fair share of obstacles that are determined to keep them from coming together as a real couple. Never fear though, Rossi isn’t too cruel…
There’s a lot of action in TTEN. A LOT. My heart was racing through basically every chapter! Just when you think the characters are safe for just a little bit, BAM here comes new twist! There’s more drama with the “Dwellers”, even more problems with the different tribes, and the fact that the Aether is becoming even more unpredictable and deadly. Readers will love every minute of the crazy events, while silently cursing Veronica for getting them so invested. I know I was…
The gist of it all is that if you loved UNDER THE NEVER SKY, you will adore THROUGH THE EVER NIGHT just as much, if not more. Rossi is an extremely talented author who has quickly become one of my favorites. I am already anticipating that third book! Why must it be so far away?
