Through The Ever Night – book review

Through The Ever Night

Through The Ever Night is the second book in the Under The Never Sky series, by Veronica Rossi.

It’s been months since Aria found out about her mother’s death. It’s been months since Perry became Blood Lord of the Tides. It’s been months since Aria last saw him.

Finally Aria and Perry are about to be reunited. It’s the moment both of them have been longing for. But the Tides don’t like Dwellers, including like Aria. The tribe starts to swirl out of control. The Aether storms worsen. The only hope for peace and happiness is the Still Blue – but does such a haven really exist?

Relying completely on faith and threatened by false friends and power, Aria and Perry wonder if their love can survive through the ever night…

I didn’t really enjoy reading Through The Ever Night. I found that this book was very disjointed from the end of the last book and it took me a while to understand what had happened after the end of the first book and before the beginning of the second book. I felt like this book, as well as Under The Never Sky, had too many unimportant characters. Most of these characters seemed irrelevant to the storyline and it just confused me because I had to remember so many names. It only started getting interesting when Aria became closer to the Outsider community. Aria spent a lot of time with Roar in this book, and not so much with Perry. The more that time progressed, the more I felt connected to Roar. Roar was such a kind, honest person who I really liked. I think I may have even liked him more than Perry because for most of the book, Aria was with Roar. But I really wish Aria was with Perry more often. I also found that I got to know Soren and his father better. I saw such a transformation in Soren. In this book, Soren was a lot less arrogant and controlling. In this book, I also found out more about Cinder. A lot of the time, I found this book boring and slow. I thought lots of chapters were irrelevant and just wished they’d get on with the story. At one point in the book, I was so bored that I put it down completely and reread The Fault in Our Stars instead. But I told myself I must finish this book. For me, this series is one of those series where you don’t really like it, but you want to know what happens in the end. I found that this book only became exciting in the last 40 pages. I didn’t really like reading Through The Ever Night by Veronica Rossi and I’d give it a score of 6 out of 10. This is not a book I want to read again.
