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?

What happens when the distance threatens to tear your love apart?  Aria and Perry have been through a lot together in the little time they've known each other.  In Through the Ever Night, the difficulty continues as they're split up in order to save everyone else.  Perry's main concern is his tribe and Aria will do anything to help him.  In this sequel, readers will find out how strong their feelings truly are.

All of the things that I loved about Under the Never Sky were present in Through the Ever Night, such as the incredible plot, gorgeous writing, strong characters and showing two sides of the story.  I've been waiting for this book from the moment I put down the first, and I'm happy to say that I was not left disappointed.  The author knows exactly how to make the feel the same emotion that her characters are feeling, and that is probably my favorite part about this series.  I found it easy to dive back into the story, as if I never left it in the first place.  I suppose in my heart, I never really did.

You will see a difference in the characters, but those differences don't take anything away from who they were in the first book.  Both Aria and Perry have grown, as if being apart from each other has made them stronger.  They both have this incredible determination now, and although everything seems tough to deal with in their world, they never give up.  There are also familiar faces throughout the story, which I found comforting.  Though they have more responsibilities, Aria and Perry have always remained in each other's hearts, and that's what seems to keep them going whenever they're apart.

Though there was less romance than there was in Under the Never Sky, the characters were still able to warm your heart, which I admired.  Through the Ever Night is a book that you won't regret reading.  It's filled with just as much action and suspense as the first, and somehow takes everything you felt in Under the Never Sky and doubles it.  I can definitely call this one a favorite.


  1. This sounds so great! You seem so connected to these characters, your review definitely makes me want to read this series!

    1. Thank you! I HIGHLY recommend the series! :)

  2. Chey,
    I love your review and glad that you liked this too! I agree that the characters have grown so much. The author did a great job in making them believable. All the emotions were felt.


  3. I've loved Under The Never Sky and all these raving reviews for Through the Ever Night makes my hands itch to just grab them off the shelf! I've always thought the tribes was a knitted unit and an awesome factor in UTNS so it's great knowing that's being explored in the sequel!
