Summary from Goodreads:
It's been months since Aria last saw Perry. Months since Perry was named Blood Lord of the Tides, and Aria was charged with an impossible mission. Now, finally, they are about to be reunited. But their reunion is far from perfect. The Tides don't take kindly to Aria, a former Dweller. And with the worsening Aether storms threatening the tribe's precarious existence, Aria begins to fear that leaving Perry behind might be the only way to save them both.

Threatened by false friends, hidden enemies, and powerful temptations, Aria and Perry wonder, Can their love survive through the ever night?

In this second book in her spellbinding Under the Never Sky trilogy, Veronica Rossi combines fantasy and dystopian elements to create a captivating love story as perilous as it is unforgettable.

**This review will have some spoilers, so if you haven’t read Under the Never Sky be weary continuing! My review for Under the Never Sky**

Through the Ever Night starts off right where Under the Never Sky ended, Aria and Perry are reunited again! Aria has made a deal with Hess; in exchange for Talon she must find the Still Blue. The Reverie is getting worse every day, with more people getting ‘sick’ and the Aether storms destroying their energy sources and shelter; Hess knows that he must have an escape plan. Now that Perry is Blood Lord of the Tides, Aria does not think it’s a good idea to inform the tribe that he is dating a ‘Dweller’ or even a half-Dweller. The two must keep their relationship a secret.

The tension and unrest in the tribe force Aria to leave to find the Still Blue earlier than expected and without Perry. Roar and Aria leave to find Sable, another Blood Lord, for it is rumored that he knows where the Still Blue is. When they arrived at Sable’s, Roar was surprised to find Liv, Perry’s sister and his lost love, ready to marry Sable. Meanwhile, Perry is trying to do what’s best for the Tribe which includes: protecting them through the Aether storms, dealing with Cinder, moving them to the cave, and accepting the help from Sable’s men (as part of the Liv’s dowry). Unlikely partnerships form, some disastrously evil and others beneficial.

OH MY, Veronica Rossi continues to build an unstable world, where the need to survive is paramount. As the story continues, this dystopian world becomes more vivid and dangerous.  Rossi continues to do an amazing job with her characters. Aria has become such a kick a** character, she was great in the first book but continues to be a fighting, tough girl in the second book. She really earns the respect of the people in The Tides even though she had a rough start. Rossi also throws in a couple more “bad guys.” Hess and Sable are awful, vicious people but even though I hate them, they are incredibly well written characters. We are also introduced to Kirra…every time she spoke I just wanted to say
UGHH, she is just one of those characters you hate and get see their true motives. Cinder is evolving into a crucial character and his relationship with Perry is growing. I look forward to see his powerful role in the third book.

The plot is a bit slower than the first book, still full of action but a bit slower in the progression. I wish there was a little more suspense, it felt as though some of the storyline was predictable. That doesn't mean I didn't absolutely love every bit of it though.  Soren's new role was a nice twist, especially at the end of the book, it was quite a pleasant surprise that left me smiling.  I applaud Rossi for the ending, yet again; it is the perfect mix of intrigue and resolve. I want to keep reading but am not totally left hanging.

Through the Ever Night was a solid 4.5 stars, it paints a beautifully dangerous dystopian world with love, unlikely friendships, destruction, and the need for survival. I look forward to the third and final book!! GO READ IT :)
