Présentation de l'éditeur
Their love and their leadership have been tested. Now, it s time for Perry and Aria to unite the Dwellers and the Savages in one last desperate attempt to bring balance to their world.
At the end of THROUGH THE EVER NIGHT, Aria and Perry barely escaped Reverie with rescued Dwellers before the entire pod went up in flames. Hess and Sable had kidnapped Cinder, and now they have him trapped in their base ship, trying to make him open a hole in the Aether using his unique power. When Aria and Perry stage a rescue mission, they are captured, and soon all the remaining Tides and Dwellers are forced to submit to Hess and Sable s cruel leadership.
But Perry knows Sable will never tolerate shared rule, and he decides to do what is best for Aria and the others. He and Cinder are prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice so that Aria and the others can finally reach the Still Blue, the only remaining haven from the lethal aether storms. But to Aria, the only life worth living is one with Perry in it.
In a stunning climax, Perry narrowly reaches the Still Blue alive. With stealth and daring he and Aria (and Roar!) inspire their people to rise up against Sable and claim the Still Blue as their own.
Quatrième de couverture
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.
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.

So what can I say about it? I can tell you that I finished it in less than day. And I can say is that this is the best YA/dystopian series I've read. Yes, even better than that bestseller turned box office hit. I briefly considered the possibilities of this series going the Hollywood way eventually, but I think this story needs to stay in the imagination. Don't get me wrong; I'd definitely go watch just to see how it translated to the screen. I just don't think it could measure up. Notice I said "story" as opposed to "book." It was so much more than a book. Ms. Rossi's writing style is uniquely her own. She puts in character quirks, subtle nuances that we'd actually notice if this story were to unfold before us. This is what makes the story "real," so to speak. It helps to bring the characters we've become so fond of to life. Their struggles become our struggles. Their pain becomes our pain. Their love becomes our love. This is the true mark of a fantastic author, and I, for one, can't wait to see what Ms. Rossi brings us next.
Bottom line? If you're holding out due to the disappointment of Allegiant (seriously, we all felt it), don't. If you haven't committed to the series, please do. You won't regret it. Bravo, Ms. Rossi.
Overall this entire series was riveting. It was fast paced, action packed, and intriguing with a unique concept. I enjoyed every installment. The last installment wrapped up every loose end and yet left the story in place where if Rossi chose to continue on with it she could.
Also to my astonishment this world still had a few surprises left. One of them I didn’t see coming and the other I knew would happen, but I was still fighting against it when it did. Kudos to Rossi for making an unpredictable story.
In this installment we get to see brutal battles, friendships forge and romance burn. All of these made it a great read and I would highly recommend this series to any YA fan looking for a unique science fiction story that’s easily consumable.
As the new Blood Lord of the Tides, Perry is now responsible for everyone in what was once his brother's tribe. Now that Aria has returned to him, he feels he can face that responsibility. But the fact that Cinder, the boy who can control the Aether, was kidnapped haunts him. The psychopath leader of the Horn Tribe, Sable, and Soren's father, leader of the domed city Reverie, Hess, have joined forces to do everything they can to get to through the wall of Aether to the Still Blue, even if it means kidnapping and using a little boy like Cinder. They knew Perry, Aria, Roar and the others wouldn't let them get away with it, either. In fact, they counted on it.
Perry's plan is to attack the Komodo, a giant moving city that is slowly creeping to the edge of the Aether. With the help of Soren, a former Dweller, they can fly the hover craft to the Komodo, rescue Cinder, and get back to their people in time to escape the incoming final Aether storm that will eradicate anything still living inside the burning, toxic wasteland. The problem is that Dwellers and Outsiders don't play well together. Both Perry's group and the group inside the Komodo are ravaged by a lack of trust and faith in one another. When you are constantly watching over your shoulder to make sure your partner doesn't stab you in the back, it is hard to see the enemy who isn't afraid to stab you in the heart. The one thing keeping the survivors from the Still Blue might just be themselves.
I have followed this series since the first book was released, and I have never once been disappointed, including this finale. It was a way to bring the story full circle and deliver a conclusion that would make Rossi's fans proud. There was no slump from the first page of book one to the last page of book three, and I am really glad I found this series. With such dystopia burnout out there, it is hard to pick your favorites, but this is certainly one of mine. There is a perfect mixture of hope and despair that keeps you through this hull of a world to get to the place we all hoped existed. These characters have all lost so much that you couldn't help yourself but to hope there really was an oasis in the face of such destruction.
While the story itself and the world-building, are pretty phenomenal, the true winners are Perry and Aria. Both are loyal to a fault, and Perry's loyalty to Cinder has to be my favorite. He cares for the boy to the point of staying with him on a mission that can only lead to certain dead for both of them. It is really fantastic to find a male lead like Perry who we all hope our sons and students can grow up to be like (without the apocalyptic landscape of course!). And Aria is a young woman for our girls to look up to as well. She understands the difference between her own hopes and desires and her responsibility to the people who trust her, and she faces difficult decisions with grace and determination. I loved watching the two of them together. But don't discount the supporting characters! If you don't love Soren and Roar as much as I did, there has to be something wrong with you! It is just sad knowing their story is over, even if it was the perfect ending!
