The earth-shattering conclusion to Veronica Rossi's "masterpiece" Under the Never Sky trilogy and sequel to the New York Times bestselling Through the Ever Night (
Their love and their leadership have been tested. Now it's time for Perry and Aria to unite the Dwellers and the Outsiders in one last desperate attempt to bring balance to their world.
The race to the Still Blue has reached a stalemate. Aria and Perry are determined to find this last safe-haven from the Aether storms before Sable and Hess do-and they are just as determined to stay together.
Meanwhile, time is running out to rescue Cinder, who was abducted by Hess and Sable for his unique abilities. And when Roar returns to camp, he is so furious with Perry that he won't even look at him, and Perry begins to feel like they have already lost.
Out of options, Perry and Aria assemble a team to mount an impossible rescue mission-because 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 stunning Under the Never Sky trilogy, Veronica Rossi raises the stakes to their absolute limit and brings her epic love story to an unforgettable close.
I believe Into the Still Blue was a pretty good conclusion to the Under Never Sky trilogy. I believe things wrapped up nicely and I wasn't left with any unanswered questions. I'm really glad that I decided to check out the trilogy because I was really skeptical at first. I'm always hesitant when I go into reading a final book in a series or trilogy, but I'm glad to say that this one did not disappoint or make me angry in any way. There was a good amount of action and romance in the story and also that anticipation in knowing if they would all make it to the end. I would definitely recommend the series to anyone who loves a dystopian novel :)

I enjoyed this book a lot. It was really easy for me to get into and it's always nice to be back into the world that the author has created. At this point, I feel as though we know all the characters pretty well so it was easy for me to reconnect with the characters. I always love seeing Aria and Perry together because I think the two of them fit. I think the two of them were finally able to establish a well balanced relationship which led to them communicating more instead of one of them running off somewhere. And I was really excited to reconnect with Roar because of how things ended in book two. I love Roar :) He's such an amazing and likable character. The emotions that he is going through during the book really makes sympathize with him and hope he pushes through. But he was a bit of a hot head in the beginning.

I will say that I felt the book kind of dragged a bit at times. Not too much, but enough. Also, when it came time to travel to the Still Blue and it all went down I was kind of disappointed with that. Not enough to make me dislike the story, but I thought that would sort of be a huge dramatic moment, but it wasn't. Everything else was pretty good. The book had great action and romance and it was kind of fast paced at times. I finished the book pretty quickly. Overall, I thought it was a solid ending to a trilogy :) I'm glad I got this for review through Edelweiss. All thoughts are my honest opinion!


  1. Book series ending are def hard to go into and I can't imagine having to write them. But I agree this one did a pretty good job, and I am left with a feeling of satisfaction and fuzzies when I think of series

    1. I know :) I remember when I thought the series was about fairies before I read the book. But um, that's obviously not it at all! lol I

  2. I still haven't started with this series but everyone seem to love it and for that I cannot wait to read it. I'm so glad that this series ended on a good note. Great review, Janina :)

  3. I have a hold on this on Overdrive, so I'm just glancing at your rating. I'm glad you gave it 4 stars! I'm excited to read it!
