Jul 04, Jasmine rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Everyone! Actual rating: 4. Before I talk about the book, I just want to say that when it comes to Perry, I can't stop thinking about Chris Hemsworth the whole time because of his appearance and body figure. Don't you agree he's the perfect role for him? As the title indicates, Into the Still Blue is the last one of this series and apparently, the characters will find the Still Blue eventually. Since the Actual rating: 4.
If those first pages were anything to go by, this series would have never seen the inside of my heart but as the story progressed I couldn't help but become mesmerized. Shaking in place, afraid of doing something. I'm tired of settling for this because I don't know if something better exists. It has to. What point is there otherwise? I can do something about it now. And I will. I fell for the way he cared and fought for his tribe, for his need to survive and come through on his promise that they would all make it out alive.
It was not. I fell for the way she grew through her challenges, for every step was a struggle but she refused to be stopped. She'd survived the Aether and cannibals and wolves. She knew how to love now, and how to let go. I fell for his all consuming love for Liv and the friendship he strived for with Aria.
I feel for his mistakes, his pain and the smiles that never reached his eyes. For Talon's faith in his uncle. For Molly's kind heart.
For Brooke's redeeming soul. For Soren's mean comebacks. For Reef's grouchy behavior. For Marron's soft-hearted replies. For Liv's everlasting presence. I doubt I'll ever find a perfect series. One that has no faults or that I wouldn't change a thing. There will always be something; be it the world building or the characters, be it the ending or the unanswered questions. But when you find one that despite all errors makes your heart soar and the butterflies kick, I think that makes it worth it because all that matter in the end is if you fall.
And I did. Fall, I mean. View all 34 comments. But we also have the potential to overcome our mistakes. It was a satisfying finale, though I'd have been happier with a little more action. The story was too predictable, with no big surprises. Find more of my books on Instagram.
Die Reihe war sooooooo gut! So so so so so so gut! Jun 16, Natalia rated it it was amazing Shelves: Absolutely amazing conclusion to the series. I'm definitely going to be stuck on this book for a while.
It gave me so many more reasons to love the series and to call it my favorite. I'm happy but at the same time I want to cry. View 1 comment. Janus the Erudite Artist. I recommend Into The Still Blue. Still, better ending than I thought possible for this series. Although compared to Reached , it's more quick paced; and compared to Champion , it has more swoon moments. The best thing about this finale is that Aria and Perry did not waste time. They took what was needed from each other , and they did what what needs to be done for each other.
Aria is a grown woman now, stronger and more matured than when she was still a Dweller. Perry is more outspoken, and more confident as the Tides blood lord, and Aria's partner. Roar 's character was a sore thumb. I understood his grief, but he did not understood Perry's and how different his friend mourns for their loss. Roar went from hero to zero for me. And that's a shame! Cinder was a loose, loose end. It was a very abrupt exit for Cinder, this boy who supposedly will be their savior, the one that will usher Aether's survivors into the Still Blue.
It was pretty disappointing that his character was handled carelessly, like that. The parts that I was so pissed about are these: I mean, c'mon on! I was eager for a cat fight!!! What a letdown. Lame combat, anyone? But I was in for a boring battle of the blood lords.
I super loved Under the Never Sky series. But the finale was sort of bland, dampened down to maybe make sure that it has a neat ending. And it was, but I will not call it phenomenal. Thank you Edelweiss and HarperCollins for granting my galley request. Because I'm so spent after reading Through the Ever Night. Aria, let's kick Kirra's butt soon.
View all 6 comments. Into the Still Blue was an amazing conclusion to a series I will hold dear to my heart! We catch up with Aria and Perry after the fall of the Dwellers compound and the capture of Cinder. They have to frantically work together to save all the survivors by finding the Still Blue.
But Sable is a formidable foe and a completely evil one at that. Now that he has Hess working with him and all his resources I wondered if Perry and Aria would be able to prevail. What am I saying here? Of course Veronica Into the Still Blue was an amazing conclusion to a series I will hold dear to my heart!
Of course Veronica Rossi would not disappoint her fans! I will say that it was one hell of a ride with danger, moments of anxiousness and some heartbreak! One of the things I loved about this series is the lack of a love triangle. Yes Perry and Aria had their hurdles and lows to overcome but there was never a serious third party contender. Rossi stayed away from that overused and annoying plot device. No irritating non-communication issues!
Yes, Ms. Every time Perry and Aria were together my heart raced because of the electricity of their connection. They seemed to bring out the best and root for each other; their love made each other stronger. This has been one of my favorite YA series to date, and I look forward to whatever Veronica Rossi has in store for us next!

Jul 28, Aj the Ravenous Reader rated it it was amazing Shelves: If you feel like reading dystopian series is like reading Hunger Games all over again with just few twists and turns, I suggest you read this Series to give you a fresh feel on dystopians. Plus Aria and Perry's love story is totally amazing and Roar reminds me so much of one of my favorite characters- Kenji of Shatter Me series!!!
Aug 24, Anja H. Even though I enjoyed this series immensely, I just couldn't give this 5 stars. It just didn't touch me as deeply as some other book trilogies out there.. Sometimes it felt a bit rushed in my opinion, but maybe that's because I always liked a bit more details and chit-chat in my books: Basically this book in a nutshell: Aria and Perry are definitely one of my favorite book couples of all time.
I could just feel how much they care for and love each other! My all time favorite character is Roar though. Seriously, if Roar existed in real life, I'd want him as my best friend asap!
Actually, now that I think about it, I loved all the characters in these books. Yes, even Sable, just a teeny tiny bit! He's just someone who wants to be loved, accepted and respected and I can't blame him for that. I'm also really glad that Aria finally got to meet her father, who is secretly also one of my new favorite characters. I'm so sad that some of my favorite characters died I won't say who but I felt that it was necessary for the story, to make it more believable and so you'll be more happy for the characters who did survive and reached the Still Blue.
This book deals with a lot of hard decisions, loss, survival and revenge. It was really well executed though and I couldn't be happier with the ending!
Overall, I really enjoyed these books and I'm totally going to read them again someday! Jun 06, Carmen rated it it was amazing Shelves: After Reading: I cheered a little too loudly at certain deaths.

Jan 11, Ann annreads rated it it was amazing Shelves: I absolutely love this books and I'm so sad the series it's over! Aria, Perry and Roar will always have a special place in my heart!
So glad this was my first read of the year!! Aug 08, Giselle rated it it was amazing Shelves: 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. I felt so much sympathy for Roar in this one. This one was one page turner, and I just loved the ending. 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. View all 4 comments. Two words that describe this book: This series has been sitting on my shelves for like a year or a two and tell you what, i've only gotten myself to go give it a chance like last week and it was worth it. The plot was utterly well studied and how I was amazed by Rossi's writing style.
The pacing of the novel was quite good, I mean really good. I swear. There are no boring moments. Everyone single character of this serie Two words that describe this book: Everyone single character of this series has touched my soul. That everything about them makes them family except from blood.
How I even grew fond of the protagonists for they played their roles well. That I sometimes want to hug them and punch them and throw them into the wolves and hope that they won't come back leading them.
From the dedication up to the acknowledgement, it was worth reading it. This world was cruel yet magical. It makes me wonder of what future might become. The twist and turns of the story totally hooked me. So many revelations. If only my sister was not sitting next to me, I would've cried many times because this book was just so beautiful yet heartbreaking. And news flash: I did not expect them and a lot of them made my eyes water for a little. And believe me, I found myself asking the author why the hell did she murdered these sweet innocent fictional characters?
Though I have to say, I love the budding romance between Soren and Brooke like emeghed. They're so cute!! Even though the ending was rushed! I still enjoyed it!! The scenes in where Perry and Aria swam in order to get to this certain cave was golden! And the scene where Perry was taking of his pants then Aria entered the room was utterly hilarious.
That made me closed the book for a while and laugh maniacally. My god! I need to go to the church. The farewell scenes in where all of them thought that they were not going to see each other broke my heart. I beg of u! I don't want u to be like me who is always curious and do not follow this. He did not and that still made me want to cry!
Up to now, while my stupid hands dance across this stupid keypad. And come to think of it! What will happen with Willow? Will she meet a boy in the Horns tribe? Like dudeee!!! Reef was everything!! He acted as a father and a loyal advisor to Perry when he needed one the most.
Sure, he acted like a jerk at like the beginning of book two but I don't care! And I also kinda felt sad that Hess died! Sure, he was evil and such but at least he turned away from the dark side like Darth Vader and that's what matters!
Fighting for his people!!! Dec 04, Nasom rated it really liked it Shelves: I'm gonna miss my babies! This is the first series in a while that I have completed! Most series these day annoy me so much that I don't continue.
And just like the two previous books, this story was an emotional journey. Torture, love, sacrifice, it honestly felt like my heart would stop beating at times.
Even while they were strategizing, since the risks they were willing to take felt monumental. This series has easily become one of my favorite dystopian series ever, and I can't recommend it highly enough! I started out this book feeling overwhelmed. Their situation had become dire. The Tides and Dwellers were about to become trapped in the cave and die because of how the aether was changing.
They had to find the Still Blue! But to do that they needed hoovers and Cinder, which were both in the custody of Hess and Sable.
And while that seemed daunting enough, their relationships with one another were all twisted. Roar, Aria, Perry. Nothing felt right. I just wanted to curl into a ball and cry with how much each of them were struggling or suffering or pretending that they weren't.
I felt suffocated from their drama, but thankfully there was an awesome distraction coming up! When Soren looked back, Roar flung his knife into the air. The blade spun end over end, heading right for Soren, who yelped and dodged aside.
It missed him by a hair, as Roar had surely intended. Roar never missed. Roar jogged over and calmly picked up his knife, but he sheathed the blade with a vicious thrust.
Hmm, I guess I should rephrase that, an unlikely team. I definitely was uncertain about this, because while each of them was perfect for the mission, together they were not a good mesh. They fought. They didn't always work together. And they screwed up because of those issues.
But I will say that I found hope. Aria played a joke on Soren, which made me laugh so hard. And that moment led to that hope. Hope that this mismatched team would pull together and make not only everyone else, but themselves proud too!
I mean, everyone's survival rests on their shoulders. No biggie right? You mean half-breeds? I mean people who are forgiving and optimistic and things like that. Her and Perry have grown immensely since their first encounter. And Perry now felt like a true leader. The decisions and sacrifices he made, I'm so proud of him, even if I still can't talk about it. Roar - I never thought I'd find two book boyfriends in a story. But I absolutely loved Roar. Even when he was being an emotional ass.
I will never be able to get him out of my head. Soren - That dweller pulled me in, no matter how hard I fought it. He completely won me over and I was hoping he got a HEA too! Cinder - He started out as a tag along, and in the Tides he finally found what he was always searching for. A family. He was braver than I ever could have been at his age, and I loved his moments throughout the story. All that mattered. Everything there was to say. The twists and turns kept me on my toes, but the events that unfolded and affected the characters, that's what moved my heart so deeply.
I sobbed. I pleaded. I hoped they would all survive. Even though I should have known better. This story was perfectly destructive and uplifting at the same time. And I won't be able to get their world or these characters out of my head for a long time to come. PS Can we please have a novella looking into the future? My heart desperately needs that!

The final installment was good in its own right, but it was very different in execution. I had been expecting one thing, and when I got something else, I think I balked at it without realizing. Once I got over the fact that the character-driven vibe of the past two books wasn't going to be as strong of a factor here, I settled in to enjoy the one thing that I always sa The trilogy-ending curse has been broken.
Once I got over the fact that the character-driven vibe of the past two books wasn't going to be as strong of a factor here, I settled in to enjoy the one thing that I always say YA sci-fi books need more of: All in all, this was a satisfying okay, so one thing could have been more satisfying Well done, Ms.

The characters have been through so much and gone through so much development. They remained true to themselves though, and it is so amazing.
I just can't rave about this series enough! I love this world, it's so creative and interesting. I also felt like there were no plot holes and every question was answered: I read this book so quickly, I couldn't stop! The writing flows so nicely and is so intriguing. Read this series! Mar 03, Ashley Williams rated it it was amazing Shelves: Just Downloaded my ARC!!! I cannot even form words for how much I loved this book! It was so good!
I loved the first two books in this series soo much, and this book was no exception. It was full of action like the previous book, though there wasn't as much of a romantic aspect, it was still there and strong.
I love Perry and Roar and Aria. I thought for a second or two that I would die at the ending, but I managed to make it through. I loved every single word! I was tra. I was transfixed and didn't stop until the end, which came at 2: It was a truly amazing end to a wonderful dystopian series. I really don't want it to end!
I have to know what happens with some of the other characters! Rossi's writing is stellar as usual, and the duel POVs are still great. I didn't think I could like Aria's character any more, but somehow Rossi managed that as well. Some of her confidence is taken away at the end of TTEN and she has to find a way to work through it, for the good of everyone.
Perry is still Perry. He has to stay strong and not let anything bother him for the good of his tribe. Roar, well, he's hurting from the loss of Liv still, and has to deal with his grief. Overall, it was amazing! I couldn't have asked for a better ending!
I'm just sad now it's over! View all 5 comments. Jul 13, Lotte rated it really liked it Shelves: Are you looking for an entertaining dystopian trilogy that doesn't get progressively worse with each book? Then look no further! The Under the Never Sky trilogy might be exactly what you're looking for!
Some things that speak for these books: The story itself isn't the most original and follows the general recipe for YA dystopias, plus, the story becomes pretty angsty at times, but all in all, I think that this trilogy is worth your time and I'd definitely recommend it!
Sep 15, Melanie rated it really liked it Shelves: See more reviews at YA Midnight Reads Into The Still Blue is the final conclusion to the Under the Never Sky trilogy and delivered a lot of kick-assery, sweet romance, unforgettable friendships and higher stakes for all the characters.
She worried about him. Shed only been separated from him for a few days, but it felt like too long. They came to an open area, wide as the clearing at the heart of the Tide compound. At the center spread a wooden platform surrounded by tables and chairsall packed with people gathered around lamps. Dressed in browns and grays, they blended into the dimness, but their chatter drifted toward her, their voices tinged with anxiety.
Were only allowed to leave the cave when its safe outside, Molly said, noticing Arias expression. Today there are fires burning close by and a storm just south, so weve been stuck here. Its not safe to be outside? You said Perry was out there. Molly winked. Yes, but he gets to break his own rules. As Blood Lord, he needed to take risks, more like.
By the stage, people began to notice them. Sun-bleached and salt-scrubbed, the Tides were an aptly named tribe. Aria spotted Reef and a few of his strongest warriors, a group known as the Six. She recognized the three brothers: Hyde, Hayden, and Straggler, the youngest.
He lifted a hand in a tentative greeting. Aria returned a shaky wave. She barely knew him, or any of these people. Shed only spent a few days with Perrys tribe before she left the Tide compound. Now, standing before these almost strangers, she felt a powerful longing to see her people, but she didnt.
Not a single person she and Perry had rescued from Reverie was there. Where are the Dwellers? In a separate portion of the cave, Molly said. But Mollys attention had moved to Reef, who left his men and stalked over.
In the darkness, his features looked even harsher, and the massive scar that cut from his nose to his ear appeared more sinister. Youre finally up, he said.
His tone made it sound like Aria had been lazing around. Perry cared for this man, she reminded herself. Trusted him. But Reef had never made any attempt to befriend her. She stared into his eyes. Being injured is boring. Youre needed, he said, ignoring her sarcasm.
Molly wagged a finger at him. No, you dont, Reef. She just woke up and needs a chance to get acclimated. Dont put this on her so soon. Reef squared his shoulders, his thick eyebrows drawing together. When should I tell her then, Molly? Every day brings a new storm.
Every hour, our food stores dwindle. If there is a better time for her to know the truth, Id like to know when it is. He leaned in, a few of his thick braids falling forward. War rules, Molly. We do whats needed, when its needed, and right now that means she needs to know whats happening. Reef s words shook any last wisp of fuzziness from Arias mind.
They brought her back to where shed been a week ago, alert and tense, a little breathless, with a sense of desperation curling inside her like a stomachache. Tell me what happened, she said. Reef turned his intense gaze on Aria. Better if I show you, he said, striding away.
She followed him from the gathering area, deeper into the cave, where it grew darker and quieter and darker still, her dread mounting with every step. Molly let out a sigh of exasperation, but she came along. They wove through the melting formationsa forest of stone that dripped from the ceiling and rose up from the ground, gradually molding togetheruntil Aria walked through a natural corridor.
Here and there, the tunnel opened to other passageways, which breathed cool damp drafts against her face. Down that way is the storage area for medicines and supplies, Molly said, gesturing to the left. Everything thats not food or animals. Those are kept in the caverns at the south end.
Her voice sounded a little too cheerful, like she was trying to compensate for Reef s gruff manner. Aria found herself growing slightly light-headed and seasick. Or cavesick. Where were they taking her?
She had never known darkness like this. Outside there was always Aether, or sunlight, or moonlight. In the Pod, within the protected walls of Reverie, lights always blazed.
This was new, this suffocating pool. She felt the pitch black fill her lungs with every breath. She was drinking the dark. Wading through it. Behind that curtain is the Battle Room, Molly continued. Its a smaller cavern where we brought one of the trestle tables from the cookhouse.
Perry meets with people in there to discuss matters of importance. The poor boy hardly ever leaves.
Walking silently ahead of them, Reef shook his head. I worry about him, Reef, Molly said, with plain irritation. Someone has to. And you think I dont?
Aria worried toomore than either of thembut she bit her lip, leaving them to argue. Well, youre good at hiding it, if so, Molly shot back. All you seem to do is lecture him about what hes doing wrong.
Reef glanced over his shoulder. Should I start slapping him on the back and telling him hes wonderful? Will that do us any good?
You could try it once in a while, yes. Aria stopped listening to them. Sickly sounds that swept toward her through the tunnel. A chorus of need. She broke away from Molly and Reef, clutching her wounded arm to her side as she rushed ahead. Rounding a bend in the corridor, she arrived in a large, dim cavern, lit along the perimeter by lamps.
Spread across the f loor on blankets lay dozens of people in varying states of consciousness. Their faces were ghastly white against their graysthe same clothes shed worn her entire life until shed been cast out of Reverie.
They took ill immediately after you all arrived, Molly said, catching up to her. You went to Perrys tent, and they came here, and thats how its been. Perry said this same thing happened to you when you first came out of Reverie. Its the shock to your immune systems. There were inoculations onboard the Hover you arrived in. A supply for thirty peoplebut there are forty-two here.
We administered equal amounts to everyone, at Perrys request. He said its what youd have wanted. Aria couldnt respond. Later, when she could think clearly again, she would recall Mollys every word.
Shed consider the way Reef watched her with his arms crossed, like this was her problem to fix. Now she moved further inside, her heart stuck in her throat. Most of the people she saw were still as death. Others shook with fever, their complexions sallow, almost green.
She searched the faces around for her friendsCaleb and Rune and Aria She followed the voice.
