Within the confines of a cave they're using as a makeshift refuge, they struggle to reconcile their people, Dwellers and Outsiders, who are united only in their hatred of their desperate situation. Meanwhile, time is running out to rescue Cinder, who was abducted by Hess and Sable for his unique abilities. Then Roar arrives in a grief-stricken fury, endangering all with his need for revenge.
Out of options, Perry and Aria assemble an unlikely team for an impossible rescue mission. 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 earth-shattering Under the Never Sky trilogy, Veronica Rossi raises the stakes to their absolute limit and brings her epic love story to an unforgettable close.
- Aria once again grew in strength and skill in this book. She, unlike other fellow dwellers, got rid of the discrimination against the outsiders and moved to make life best for all of them.
- Aria is forced to make a sacrifice and comes through with flying colors. I was almost expecting a whining session, but she did the mature, correct thing in the situation and I really liked that Veronica choose that path for Aria.
- I cannot imagine how hard it would be to live in a cave and not really be able to go outside, I thought the description of the cave and life in the cave was really interesting!
- There was a lot of action in this book as Aria, Perry and others take on Hess and Sable to try to secure Cinder and a way to get the Tides into the Still Blue.
- I really liked the way that the series wrapped up. Unlike other series that have dwindled in the second and third book, I would have to say this series got better.
- The world-building got better in this book, but that definitely was not a strong suit for this series. I wanted to visualize more on the dweller ships and the Still Blue.
