Their love and their leadership have been tested. Now it's time for Perry and Aria to unite the Dwellers and the Outsiders in one last desperate attempt to bring balance to their world.
The race to the Still Blue has reached a stalemate. Aria and Perry are determined to find this last safe-haven from the Aether storms before Sable and Hess do-and they are just as determined to stay together.
Meanwhile, time is running out to rescue Cinder, who was abducted by Hess and Sable for his unique abilities. And when Roar returns to camp, he is so furious with Perry that he won't even look at him, and Perry begins to feel like they have already lost.
Out of options, Perry and Aria assemble a team to mount an impossible rescue mission - because Cinder isn't just the key to unlocking the Still Blue and their only hope for survival, he's also their friend. And in a dying world, the bonds between people are what matter most.
In this final book in her stunning Under the Never Sky trilogy, Veronica Rossi raises the stakes to their absolute limit and brings her epic love story to an unforgettable close.

I thought I would get the whole series before I even read the first book and I'm glad I did as I ended up reading the whole series one after the other which I hardly ever do.

Out of the three covers I think that this one is my least favourite as I don't like the colours, however, I do prefer the patterns that are in the background more than the other books.

There was a little time missing from this book to the last book but not by many weeks so I didn't mind plus Rossi explained what had been happening. I think this book is my favourite of the series as there was so much happening keeping me on the edge of my seat with no dull moments. I would say that this one out of all of the series was the saddest book but I didn't mind as there was a little humour to make it a less depressing read. There was a bit more romance in this book which I loved as it was written so well you just knew that these two characters where meant for each other plus we got to see more of an interaction between them unlike the other books. I'm in two minds about the ending as I did love some of the outcome but there was a few bits that I felt was left unanswered which was why I couldn't give it the five stars I had wanted to up until the ending.

More growth for pretty much each of the characters. Aria showed just how strong of a person was and even through she seemed to cry more in this book I still feel like she was a stronger person. In each of the books Perry has shown a new side of himself and this is no different as he showed a vulnerable side to himself this time. Roar started off like he had at the end of the last book but by the end he started to go back to the Roar we all know and love.

Overall a good ending to a brilliant series I just wish that I had all the answers to some of the unanswered questions.
