Since she’d been on the outside, she’d survived an Aether storm, she’d had a knife held to her throat, and she’d seen men murdered.
This was worse.
Exiled from her home, the enclosed city of Reverie, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland — known as The Death Shop — are slim. If the cannibals don’t get her, the violent energy storms will. Then Aria meets an Outsider named Perry. He’s wild — a savage — and her only hope of staying alive.
A hunter for his tribe in a merciless landscape, Perry views Aria as sheltered and fragile—everything he would expect from a Dweller. But he needs Aria’s help too; she alone holds the key to his redemption. Opposites in nearly every way, Aria and Perry must come together to survive. Their unlikely alliance forges a bond that will determine the fate of all who live under the never sky.
As I sit in bed nursing a cold, I finally write this review that is 3 days overdue.
I’ve been in a reviewing slump, I’ve been getting lazy with my reviews, but now that I have time to actually contemplate the reason for my slumpyness, I realize that I need to get on it.
I received this book last May for my birthday from a friend and I feel terrible because I just finished it 3 days ago. To be honest, I think it was just my sci-fi book prejudice that made me not want to read it until this month. I’m actually glad that I finished it now because I feel like if I finished it when I got it, I probably wouldn’t of enjoyed it as much as I did now because now I am opening up to sci-fi and I actually really like it.
I think the idea of this book was so unique; humans living in pods in the sky (or is it just called space?) after the earth has been damaged.
It felt so much farther from normal than a usual sci-fi book that I was a little apprehensive.
As the book went on, It just got better. After grasping the concept in the beginning, it was all easy to understand. The idea about humans living on earth having heightened sense-like powers is so cool!
The action was phenomenal! It was super fast paced and quick to get through because the action scenes were so thrilling.
I am so eager to pick up the next book, definitely a top priority!
I LOVED THIS BOOK.
