I absolutely loved this sequel, and am dying to read the third and final installment in this series!
I was completely blown away by this book. When I first started Under the Never Sky, I didnt think I was going to like it. It seemed a little outside my element, my style, but it was recommended to me by a good friend so I bought it anyway and ended up loving it. I was captivated by Perry and Aria's narratives and how they wove together. So its no shock that I loved Through the Ever Night just as much, if not more.
Perry and Aria are reunited in this story, though short lived, and are forced to deal with the realities that the outside world throws at them. Perry, now struggles with the Tide's as their new Blood Lord he is forced to face the decisions he makes and the consequences it has on his community. Every decision affects a group of people now, Perry has to look out for the good of the Tides, which is difficult when it comes to Aria, because the Tides wont accept her, she's a dweller. Regardless of her aud ability the Tides dont see Aria as anything but a dweller forcing Aria to leave with Roar to find Liv and the Still Blue.

I love all the different characters in this book. We really get to know more than just Aria and Perry in the Second Book. We finally meet Liv, and come to see why Roar loves her so much. We also get to know Cinder more in the book, and his connection to the Aether. (His role becomes pivotal for the next installment.) We also get to know Perry a bit better. His character is move developed in this installment, he struggles between his duty and loyalty to The Tides, but also with his love for Aria and how to make those two connect is very difficult for him. And while his relationship with Aria is tested, its good to see a story where love is more powerful than lust or intrigue. And I loved Aria, her story, with Roar is necessary to complete this series, and with the information she gained and the lessons shes learned, along with Perry's story really bring the story full circle and prepare us for the final installment.
I cant wait to finish this story and am really looking forward to seeing how it all plays out!
