Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! Oh boy.. I've read Into the Still Blue almost 3 months before I finally sat down to write my review.. and I still remember most of what happened. This is a clear indication of how memorable this book, as well as the whole trilogy was. I loved Under the Never Sky but had some problems with Through the Ever Night (though it was still pretty decent). However, Rossi hit the ball out of the park with Into the Still Blue. I personally have not.one.single.complaint about this book. Not one. I'm wracking my brain trying to think of something I disliked but I can't. I've actually made a mini video review that I will include at the bottom of this post, if you're interested. Only way to write this review clearly is to first list the three aspects of what would make or break a book and talk about them.. then I can go and fangirl/rave about the whole trilogy in the next paragraph. 1. Pace/Plot: WOW, it was like Rossi was on fire when she wrote this book. I could barely get a breather before one big thing after another happened. The whole plot was SO INTENSE and what I liked about it the most is that even though the whole book was about finding the Still Blue, Rossi managed to not make the whole book about it. There are many plot lines that are woven together that elevate the complexity and of the plot. I also loved the direction Rossi took with the book. I personally couldn't predict what would happen next and that kept me at the edge of my seat, or at least kept me glued to the screen of my Nook whenever I had the chance. 2. Characters: I could write endless paragraphs about each one of the characters in this book and series. There are SO many of them that just impressed me and truly had me invested in their lives and well being. Rossi even managed to redeem some people's worth and likability. We've got our main couple Aria and Perry, as well as the ever awesome best friend Roar, Reef and the Six, as well as the little kid, Cinder. Roar is Perry's best friend but by the end of this trilogy, he could also be called Aria's best friend and I LOVED that there was no love triangle. We get to see him struggle in this book and it truly hurt my heart. As for Aria and Perry.. I feel that they should be a reference to how YA couples should be. They were both so supportive and showed their love towards each other, relied but still didn't have the desire to always depend on each other. They were both on equal footing and equally invested in their relationship and I just loved reading about them both. 3. The ending: DUN DUN DUN! yes.. we've all come to fear the endings of dystopian trilogies. Heck, after the last couple I've read.. I've always mentally and emotionally prepared myself for the worst. Without giving any spoilers, all I can say is that the ending and buildup to it and the way Rossi wrapped everything up was perfect. It was an ending that wasn't a dystopian cliche ending but at the same time it wasn't too convenient and unrealistic. Honestly, Veronica Rossi NAILED it with that ending. Bringing it back to the overall trilogy, I have to say that this trilogy didn't disappoint me. It actually went out with a bang. I am 100% fans of this trilogy will love the ending and thank Rossi for not breaking our hearts into a million little pieces. I also can't stop raving about all the fantastic and amazing characters in this trilogy. Rossi really knows how to create unique and memorable characters. Personally, this is the dystopian trilogy I will be recommending to anyone who wants to read a dystopian trilogy. I'm seriously going to miss them all; I've come to love all the characters and how real they all were. Thank you Veronica Rossi for the journey you took me on with this whole trilogy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 Brilliant Blue Stars! The conclusion to Veronica Rossi's Ever Night Trilogy is a fantastically amazing adventure and was an absolute thrill of a read! Without giving away the complete story I have to say that the Trilogy came to a beautifully satisfying conclusion.  This Trilogy was filled with adventure (the fight scenes were hearts pounding), romance (Aria and Perry are perfect), a whole cast of characters that you either love or hate (Marron, Roar, Cinder, Soren, Hess, and Sable to name only a few) and it was written so wonderfully that I could not stop turning the pages and actually saw the book playing out in my mind's eye. My favourite quote: "We all have the potential to do terrible things, Soren. But we also have the potential to overcome our mistakes. I need to believe that. What point is there otherwise?" (p.220) Must read this trilogy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! There’s just something about Veronica Rossi’s writing that makes you forget about your own life. You find yourself transported into its pages and I love that feeling. In this case, I was psyched to read this. The final book in the trilogy starts off with a revelation that there could be a place without the storm. A place where they could all be safe and free from the storms that surge in the sky. Aria and Perry search for this place throughout the book, and they end up finding answers to some questions they’ve been meaning to answer. In Roar’s case, it’s about his loved one, who just so happens to be Perry’s sister. I felt so much sympathy for Roar in this one. Hurting like he did and still trying to live day by day couldn’t have been easy. He’s so different in this one, so broken and it didn’t even feel the same. He wasn’t cracking as many jokes or laughing. A side to his character that shows how much he’s grown or in this case, how much he’s experienced. This one was one page turner, and I just loved the ending. At one point, it felt like it did end, but you realize there’s more pages so that was a rare treat. Usually books just end in an instant without any more to go on. Not in this case, because we get to see what is to come for their future. I’m sad this trilogy has ended, but I’m also wanting more from it. I believe there’s a novella with Roar so that’s just one other thing I can’t wait to grab my hands on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Review from Swept Away By Books Well this was very close to a perfect ending of this wonderful series. There were slow parts, but they were balanced out by the fast paced and incredibly intense action scenes. The romance was tamed down a lot in Into The Still Blue which was a bit sad, but the kissing scenes that were in there were SO SWOONY. Aria and Perry were such a team in Into The Still Blue and it made me cheer so hard for this couple. I love that Rossi didn't feel the need to add angst to their relationship, when they were already going through so much outside of it as well. The friendships between Roar and Aria and Roar and Perry were just as strong, despite some hiccups, and the strength each of these characters found in each other was, in my opinion, what makes this series so brilliant (other than the incredible world building). What really worked for me in this book was the absolute uncertainty of whether or not the Tides would actually make it to the Still Blue. Rossi did such an amazing job of keep me on the edge of my seat, questioning every single move that these characters make. What I also loved was how Rossi wasn't afraid of killing off some characters. There are definitely author's out there who want the complete Happily Ever After that comes with a series finale, but Rossi understood that in this kind of harsh environment that she created, not everyone would be able to live, and if they did, it would have been very unrealistic. She stuck to her story, and as we readers are seeing more and more, it's okay to kill off main (or secondary) characters in YA lit. The ending was exactly what I pictured for these amazing characters that I've created such a bond with. i couldn't have asked for any better way to finish off one of my favourite series! bravo Veronica Rossi!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Finale! Into the Still Blue is the final book in the Under the Never Sky series. The situation for Perry, Aria, and The Tides is desperate. The Aether storms are getting worse, their population grew rapidly with the addition of Outsiders, and Sable and Hess have Cinder. Perry and Aria plan a rescue mission, both because Cinder is their friend and because he’s their only hope of getting to the Still Blue. First, these have been some of my favorite covers and titles of a series. The covers have been gorgeous and the titles feel like they belong in a poem. The first two books are some of my favorites as well so I was really excited to received this one. So excited that I set aside the books I was in the middle of so I could read this one. It didn’t disappoint. The only reason it wasn’t a one-night read is because I took cold medication before starting to read so I really just couldn’t keep my eyes open, though I tried. And tried. This is one of those books where, even though I didn’t like or agree with all the decisions the characters made or their reactions to events, I could understand where they were coming from. The action started and just didn’t stop(I think I used to have fingernails before this book). I really loved that some of the characters were able to keep me guessing about their motives and intentions. I loved how obvious the character development of Aria became in this book too. Seeing the rescued Dwellers and their reactions and how Aria reacted to them. Perry and Roar both go through a lot of growing in this book too, and we see a lot more of characters like Brooke and Soren, who both managed to grow on me. And Cinder, oh that boy’s been through too much and seen to much for his age. I just wanted to hug him. After finishing Through the Ever Night, there were so many thoughts in my head about how the finale could end, how I hoped it would end, but after reading Into the Still Blue, I can’t imagine it ending any other way. It’s such a great finale to a great series and Perry and Aria are one of my favorite couples. *I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
