Under the Never Sky #3 Into The Still Blue

Presenting Under the Never Sky #3 Into the Still Blue by Veronica Rossi.

Here is the summary of the book:

The earth-shattering conclusion to Veronica Rossi's "masterpiece" Under the Never Sky trilogy and sequel to the New York Timesbestselling Through the Ever Night (

Their love and their leadership have been tested. Now it's time for Perry and Aria to unite the Dwellers and the Outsiders in one last desperate attempt to bring balance to their world.

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.

Meanwhile, time is running out to rescue Cinder, who was abducted by Hess and Sable for his unique abilities. And when Roar returns to camp, he is so furious with Perry that he won't even look at him, and Perry begins to feel like they have already lost.

Out of options, Perry and Aria assemble a team to mount an impossible rescue mission-because 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 stunning Under the Never Sky trilogy, Veronica Rossi raises the stakes to their absolute limit and brings her epic love story to an unforgettable close.

Began with a bang and ends in subtlety. Veronica Rossi's post-apocalyptic dystopia paints a scenario of the apocalypse due to the shifting magnetic polarity of the Earth and the resulting aether clouding the sky. Got to give it to her with all the zombies, aliens, virus breakouts, mass genocides or evil AIs and mayan apocalypse stories out there, using magnetic polarity shift is pretty much a new and fresh concept to implement.

Not to be outdone by the rest, this is one satisfying and very well done conclusion to the Under the Never Sky series. The story begins just where Though the Ever Night ended. The Tides have lost their home. Cinder had been captured by Hess and Sable, as he is the only one who can control the aether and give them safe passage to the 'Still blue', the land of clean blue skies shielded by a thick wall of aether...... And Aria and Perry must brave the storm coming towards them at an even faster pace if they are to save their people as well.

All in all while the book served as a conclusion to the journey but it was one heck of a character oriented drama. The action, drama, and all the twists & turns driven by the powerful characters here make this even better. yes, a few instances were a bit slow but overall  I loved it.

Aria, Perry, Roar, Cinder, Soren, Brooke, Reef, Willow, Bear, Caleb and the other. It is their story that makes this rock. The emotions, the sorrow, the tragedy; of humor, love and new life. It is these emotions that kept it all real and the author strings it all along for the adventure. The fight towards the end with Sable and the ending felt a bit rushed. But seriously I have no complaints. None whatsoever.

"A stunningly epic conclusion"
