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.

picadillyblueInto 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.

  1. Christina Kit.

    I absolutely loved the conclusion to this series! I loved how their lives in this awesome world changed, I loved how they changed, and I loved the romance.

    It’s true what you said, she ended this story perfectly but you’re so in awe of her talent and have such a Veronica Rossi hangover you want more from her 🙂

    Lovely review 🙂

  2. I think this is one of the best series endings I’ve read, mostly because the romance between Aria and Perry concludes perfectly. I love the place we leave them at. Of course, I wish there had been more for Roar, too, but maybe Rossi will revisit him in the future! Great review!

  3. Ha! I posted my review of Into the Still Blue today too. 🙂 I agree, this was a great conclusion to an exhilarating series. I thought the ending was a tiny bit rushed, but still thoroughly enjoyed the read. I hope Rossi writes more, I love her books!

  4. This is the last book I have to read in this series (I requested it from the library but was WAY too low on the list). I finished the other two books in February and enjoyed them, so I’m really excited to see how the entire story ends. I really like Aria and how tough she is, and think Roar is awesome. Perry erks me sometimes, but he’s okay. Glad to see you enjoyed the book and thanks for the awesome review!

    This is one of my favorite series ever!! I haven’t read this one yet but I’m dying to find out how it ends. The ending worries me a bit though. I read some reviews on Goodreads that the ending was very disappointing.
