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?
Just like Aria was dying to see Perry, I've been DYING to read Through the Ever Night. Like salivating at the cover every week and just itching to get my hands on it. Really, it's a sickness. With great excitement comes great expectations. Luckily, I was in no way disappointed.

Obviously, Veronica Rossi has grown quite a bit as an author and it's just lovely to behold. It was a joy to read about Aria and Perry's remarkably healthy relationship and their efforts to take care of the ones they love. Never did I doubt either's sincerity in anything they did and I can't help but admire them as characters. (Real life, Rachel, you have one of those...)

In following Aria and Perry's exploits, Rossi's created world is expanded and my only regret is that we haven't seen more of it before. Emotionally, I was exhausted at the end, but it was completely worth it. We meet quite a few all-new characters, see more of some side characters, and get to know our old favorites even more (ROAR.)

My only complaint is that Through the Ever Night is not longer! And that I have to wait at least a year for the next one! If you felt anything akin to liking when you read Under the Never Sky, you're sure to enjoy Through the Ever Night even more, and if you were hesitant, I think you should give this series another try. I think you'll be surprised. :)
