Review: Into the Still Blue by Veronica Rossi


Summary: 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 (Examiner.com).

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.

Into the Still Blue is the third and final book of the Under the Never Sky Trilogy.

Since this is the last book in this series, I'll try no to spoil too much from the first two books or this book for that matter!

Okay. I just need to say that I'm completely satisfied with how this series ended. I remember loving the first two books when I had read them more than a year ago. And now I also love the last book. The characters were just as great as in the first two books. The plot direction was a bit different than in the first two books where everything seemed to be more rushed, not the writing but the time. Everyone was running out of time and they still are in this book but now that the end is so close, everything starts to slow down and this was great for the story (being the last book you wouldn't want the story to feel rushed).

So a bit info on the plot...everyone is trying to get to the Still Blue. The Still Blue is this area that is safe form the Aether storms that destroy everything and make living deadly. So everyone is trying to escape cause no one wants to die obviously but it's ironic because a lot of people die throughout the book/series. And I like this aspect in the sense that it makes the story feel more real. Not everything turns out perfect. In real life not everyone survives. In the book, if you go on a rescue mission, not everyone comes out, sacrifices are made and you cry when something doesn't go right because it's a story and you'd think everyone would make it! Sadly it doesn't happen but in the end it's great - a lot of the people who matter, make it, though along the way everyone lost something - their home, the land, the friend, their family and so on. And even though there was a lot of hardships that happened throughout the book, the ending really was perfect.... 

Aria and Perry are my favorite characters (along with all the other main characters but I'm focusing on them). It was great that even in this last book with so much action going on that the author was able to tie in the romance perfectly. It wasn't pushed off to the side or anything which sometimes can happen in final books but nope, that doesn't happen! And I'm so grateful that these two weren't forgotten in the mess of things. I loved watching the two grow in the first book and second and still continuing on in this book.The characterization of the other characters was executed perfectly as well. 

So all-in-all read all the books!! I wish I could say more but as I said it's hard to talk about a book when (I'm guessing) a lot of you haven't read the series. With that, this final book truly was amazing and perfect and the author is such a wonderful writer that her writing sucks you in to the book and the characters. I read the book in one sitting and actually skipped dinner (don't worry I ate after I finished!). As I have said this book is really good and seriously go pick up the series! You won't regret it! 5/5 stars!!
