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.
Into The Still Blue, the conclusion to the Under the Never Sky trilogy, brings everything to a head and ends the series with a bang. Veronica Rossi managed to write a perfect ending to the trilogy that will leaver fans eager for more from her.
Through the Ever Night set things up perfectly for this final book. It ended on a bit of a cliffhanger with Cinder being taken, Reverie collapsing, and the “dwellers” and “savages” being forced to work together to save themselves. Into The Still Blue picks up immediately after that ending and things are tense. The world as they know it is ending and if they don’t reach the still blue, they will die. The stakes are higher than ever and no one is safe.
I’ll keep this short and sweet because I don’t want to spoil anything. Into The Still Blue is fast-paced, action packed, and will have readers on the edge of their seats. Everyone is in danger in this final installment and each injury and death is crushing. I definitely shed some tears and bit off some nails while reading this one.
The characters are still just as awesome as always but they are all very changed. Liv’s death has changed Roar’s outlook on life. Roar’s attitude changes both Perry and Aria even more than they’ve already changed. Perry is still young but he’s forced to be a leader and put his people’s happiness and lives above his own. Then there is Cinder. He’s so different from the Cinder in previous books. He’s grown so much. He definitely took center stage in Into The Still Blue and he shined. I loved him.
The ending wasn’t as neat and tidy as I had hoped but it was far from open-ended. It’s not a book with an overall happy ending but there are happy pieces to the ending. The one thing I would have liked to see was a romance for Roar. Can we get a spin-off for him?
Overall, Into The Still Blue will please fans of the trilogy. I’m excited to see what Veronica Rossi does next.
