“Days were darkened by clouds and the blue cast of Aether. Night were brightened by the same. They flowed together, the edges blurring into an endless day. An ever night.”
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? (Goodreads)
A good sequel from the first book, Under the Never Sky. From the cover that show us an image of a boy that we assume Perry, we can see that this book’s problem centered on Perry, after all he’s a Blood Lord now. We can see how he survive and adapt his new life as a new Blood Lord. How he have to think about his tribe and Aria in the same time. Poor Perry, people on his tribe not really trust her as the new Blood Lord, maybe because of his age, or his experience. Another problem is that the Tides don’t trust Aria, because she’s a Dweller.So yeah Perry have to face a lot of problems in this book. But there’s something that I hate from Perry in this book, like when he felt jealous of Aria’s relationship with Roar. I mean it’s pathetic to think that Aria and Roar were runaway and that they are together, that will never happen, but still Perry think the possibility of it.
It’s another story for Aria. In this book Aria is getting stronger, now after she realized that she is half Dweller and half Savage she learn to accept and learn how to live as an Outsidder. And her power as an Aud is getting stronger too. She become another Roar’s bestfriend after what they’ve been through since Delphi until the Horns tribe. When I read that she make an agreement with Sorren I thought that is a bad idea, I thought she will fall into another trap but yeah Sorren surprised me when he keep his words. I really love how Aria’s character have grown into a stronger character.
Roar. Poor Roar. He have to face Liv who will mary Sable then after he can talk Liv to go back to they home at the Tides he have to see how Liv sacrifice herself to dead to save him. It’s so sad, it’s like having a hopes up then poof suddenly it all went to down.
This book is so good, it makes me waiting and wanting to read the third book Into the Still Blue. The rating for this book is 4 stars.
