I don’t have a whole lot to say to you about Through The Ever Night, unless it’s “I love Roar more” and “Hey that rhymes”. Why? Because if you’ve read the first book in this outstanding series, I won’t have to tell you that it’s amazing from start to finish. If you haven’t read Under the Never Sky yet … What are you even doing here? Uhm, there might be spoilers! Go away and read UTNS. Then come back. And then leave again unless you’ve read Through the Ever Night too because I’m going in spoiler mode now.
[BE WARNED. HERE THERE BE TYGERS, I MEAN SPOILERSSS]
Whyyyyyy did you kill Liv just when we started to like her? You did that on purpose, didn’t you, Veronica Rossi – orrrr should I say Veronica ROTH? (Sorry, lame joke, but if you get it, you get it.)
I was so sad for Roar because he is one of my all time favorite characters and his ache for Liv was palpable in every word – or lack of words, more appropriately.
I adore the friendship between Aria and Roar so much more than I do the relationship between Aria and Perry. Not because I want Aria and Roar to be together, heck no! I think it’s very admirable that Veronica Rossi just made them friends in the deepest possible way, without ever crossing the line to possible romance – and therefore going into a love triangle. However, with Liv gone now … You never know what part 3 might have in store … I sure don’t because Veronica Rossi is one surprising lady on paper.
Very glad for Perry that he has Talon back and Marron is so cute and even Sable intrigued me. Weird that Soren was back, but I loved the whole Phantom of the Opera thing, it was so befitting. Don’t talk to me about Kirra though. Nah-ah.
Pic: How I imagine Roar! (with darker hair though) – Yes that’s Henry Cavill in The Tudors.
[END OF SPOILERS, I SWEAR]
Once again Veronica Rossi has proved that originality is not dead. She weaves a tale of love, friendship, sci-fi, dystopian and medieval fantasy as if it’s the most natural thing in the world. You deserve nothing less than five stars for the amazing world you’ve built – it’s the best I’ve come across. Yes, better than Panem!
FIVE STARS YAY *****
