UNDER THE NEVER SKY by Veronica Rossi

HarperCollins, 2012

Under the Never Sky_coverI read this book a while ago, but since the last installment of the Under The Never Sky Trilogy launches January 28, I thought it was a good time to get this recommendation out there.

It’s no secret that I love a romance in my YA fiction. When the two would be young lovers REALLY dislike each other at the beginning, all the better. It’s sort of an Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Darcy thing with me. I eat it up and can’t put it down. Friction, friction, friction. That’s exactly what we get from Veronica Rossi’s debut novel Under The Never Sky.

In a future Earth where the environment has become so hostile, people have to survive deadly aether storms by either hiding in rock structures or man-made pods. Aria is a pod dweller living a life of technological luxury. She’s forced to leave the safety of her home after she was involved in a pod breach scenario with the Head of Security’s son. Peregrine, or Perry, is an outsider known for his survival skills and unusual gifts. In desperation he breaks into one of the pods and inadvertently ends up saving Aria’s life. The two unlikely partners are forced to rely on one another because the other holds the key to what they each need.

Veronica Rossi tells this engaging adventure story in alternating voices. One chapter is from Aria’s point of view and the next will be from Perry’s. This gives us the readers a chance to see how each character’s feeling and personalities grow throughout. The author does an amazing job of pulling off this difficult task.

It’s definitely a book I would recommend you read. Please know that it is the beginning of a series, but this title stands on its own. Once you’ve entered this world I’m sure you’ll want to stick around for the encores.
