Through the Ever Night Review

352 pages

It's been months since Aria last saw Perry. Months since Perry was named Blood Lord of the Tides, and Aria was charged with an impossible mission. Now, finally, they are about to be reunited. But their reunion is far from perfect. The Tides don't take kindly to Aria, a former Dweller. And with the worsening Aether storms threatening the tribe's precarious existence, Aria begins to fear that leaving Perry behind might be the only way to save them both. Threatened by false friends, hidden enemies, and powerful temptations, Aria and Perry wonder, Can their love survive through the ever night?

I really enjoyed this novel as the second book in the Under the Never Sky series. Aria has really grown as a person since being on the Outside. Perry has also changed and you can see the weight of his responsibilities from being the new Blood Lord of the Tides. The relationship between Aria and Perry have a lot of difficulties since Aria is still seen as a Dweller by Perry's tribe. I really enjoyed the new characters that were introduced and while there are quite a few sad moments, there are also some humorous ones as well. There is a lot of action and adventure as Aria tries to find a place where Aether storms do not threaten humanity's existence, and while Perry tries to ensure his tribe's survival. The pacing of this novel is excellent and brings it to a climatic cliffhanger of an ending that will leave you wondering where Aria and Perry's adventure will take them next. I definitely recommend reading this novel if you like dystopian fiction but make sure you read Under the Never Sky first.
