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, electrified energy storms will. She’s been taught that the very air she breathes can kill her. 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 accept each other to survive. Their unlikely alliance forges a bond that will determine the fate of all who live under the never sky.

In her enthralling debut, Veronica Rossi sends readers on an unforgettable adventure set in a world brimming with harshness and beauty.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Narrator Bernadette Dunne [Flagler’s] husky voice captures both the intense survival story and the earnest young love that emerges. The novel’s point of view alternates between that of Aria and Perry, yet Flagler keeps each distinct. There’s action from the get-go, and Flagler sounds like she’s as caught up in the whirlwind as the characters…A fun take on the current dystopian trend.”

    AudioFile

  • “A pure delight. Narrator Bernadette Dunne [Flagler] flawlessly moves from character to character, giving each one a distinct persona. Sure to captivate listeners.”

    Library Journal

  • “[Dunne Flagler’s] capable reading brings suspense and dramatic action to listeners’ ears…A satisfying way to experience Rossi’s gripping tale of survival, love, and loyalty.”

    Booklist (audio review)

  • “Fans of The Hunger Games will cheer Aria’s gradual, warrior-like transformation over the course of the novel.”

    Booklist

  • “Rossi grounds her worldbuilding in language, creating idioms for the Dwellers and Outsiders that add texture to their respective myths; her characters brave and complex and her prose smooth and evocative. Inspired, offbeat, and mesmerizing.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “A debut author to watch. Under the Never Sky has a Star Wars feel, complete with charming enemies-turned-friends-turned-lovers romance and the juxtaposition of futuristic technology amongst a barren landscape. The story is told in alternating narratives by the two main characters, which Rossi pulls off nicely…A standout.”

    " I thought that this book was pretty good. The plot could have been a little more clear , but for the most part it was well written. The range of vocabulary is pretty good and i like the subtle romance going on. "

    " I went back and forth on whether or not I wanted to do a full review of this book on my blog and I decided in the end that thought it was an enjoyable read, it really didn't do much for me as a book. That being said I know tons of people who have read and loved this book, so I think really it's a matter of taste. For me it was a couple of aspects a) the romance was too big a part of the story for me b) that the world building wasn't unique enough and c) the characters though well developed were not interesting to me. I wanted there to be some twists and turns in the story, and that never really happens. All the characters are incredibly nice and are exactly what they seem to be. That is fine but it's not to my personal tastes in reading. It however was fast paced and exciting in terms of it's plot but it just didn't have a 'wow' factor for me. I think you have to love the romance to love this book and I just didn't. "
