Goodreads Summary:
The earth-shattering conclusion to Veronica Rossi's "masterpiece" Under the Never Sky trilogy and sequel to the New York Times bestselling Through the Ever Night (
Their love and their leadership have been tested. Now it's time for Perry and Aria to unite the Dwellers and the Outsiders in one last desperate attempt to bring balance to their world.
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.
Meanwhile, time is running out to rescue Cinder, who was abducted by Hess and Sable for his unique abilities. And when Roar returns to camp, he is so furious with Perry that he won't even look at him, and Perry begins to feel like they have already lost.
Out of options, Perry and Aria assemble a team to mount an impossible rescue mission-because 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 stunning Under the Never Sky trilogy, Veronica Rossi raises the stakes to their absolute limit and brings her epic love story to an unforgettable close.

My Thoughts:

Absolutely one of my favorite series ever. I love Aria and Perry's story. But this series reaches so much further than just Aria and Perry. There's Roar, Liv, Cinder, Brooke, Soren, and the list just keeps going. I adored so many of the side characters and wanted everything to work out well for everyone. Of course, we know that can't  happen but it's what I wanted. And I so hate to see the series come to an end. Can't Veronica Rossi just keep writing stories in this world? Maybe do a spin-off with Roar? 

In this final book, Aria, Perry and the other survivors make a run for the Still Blue - that step which we've been anticipating since the first book. We get to see the blending of many tribes and the dwellers joining in to the group. There are additions of new characters (hello, Aria's father). Final battles with bad guys. Everything that is needed for a great action story.

Ms. Rossi does a terrific job of building this world that in truth I wouldn't mind living in for a bit - as long as I'm in Perry's tribe!
