    Under the Never Sky []  2020-1-14 19:29

    This book was basically another teen dystopian novel that reminded me of the Divergent series. However, the plot was exciting and appropriately complex for the older YA audience, and it played on all of my emotions on multiple occasions. Each hero had their own special personality that showed through actions and relationships, as well as through dialogue. Specifically the relationships between Aria, Perry, and first I was frustrated with Aria. She threatened to fall into the "helpless female protagonist" category, but by the end she had redeemed herself. Her inner conflicts and hero flaws succeeded in making her more believable and relatable. Her reactions and growth were real to those of a girl who has suffered loss while finding herself thrown into a completely new, challenging, and often frightening world.Overall, I liked the entire series, I've reread it multiple times, and I feel that reading it was time well spent.

    Under the Never Sky []  2020-1-14 19:29

    This book had an interesting concept, one that despite its comparisons to "The Hunger Games," which it was nothing like, I found to be original. Veronica Rossi has made two futuristic worlds in this book both showing opposite ways the human race could have evolved. One is a super-high tech civilization where we rely on technology to survive; and the other a primitive civilization where human's senses and instincts have evolved to support us survive. Despite my interest in her concept however I found this book somewhat underdeveloped. Rossi had nice imagery, but it was more descriptive than lyrical and I found myself confused by her explanation of the "smarteye" and just how did it really look, as well as why the Aether is how it is book starts out really slow. Not to say that there isn't action in the beginning, just that it comes with small explanation, then the book gets bogged down with a amazing amount of background info, and yet still not enough to respond all my questions. It took the plot a long time to form. I feel the first quarter of this book could have been removed completely and the necessary pieces told to us through flashbacks. I think this would have been far more effective and concise for the reader. I did, however, become far more interested in the story once Aria and Perry reunited and were forced to be allies, but the pent up tension and him "hoisting her versus his side" felt too much like a cheesy romance novel at first. I did like their snarky interaction. I liked how they both seemed more human to one another as time went on and for the most part, their relationship developed naturally. It was their relationship that kept me reading.While I enjoyed their relationship, there were a few plot clichés which really bothered me and I think affected it negatively. Usually I'm able to look past clichés when they're used correctly but there were a few that felt like they were there for no reason. Such as Perry thinking he's cursed because of what happened to his mother or the "rendering" that happens between two people. I felt like there was no purpose for Aria and Perry to "render" to one another, the story would have gone on just the same had they just "realized they liked on another".Also, I was glad to see some adult themes like the mentioning of in the realms, but then when Aria has in the true for the first time we don't even obtain to read about it from her POV. We obtain a nice and sweet, but short stage that doesn't even bother to tell us if it is "better" in the true or not, even though they had just talked about whether or not it would be over dinner. I think had they not been discussing this pages earlier I would not have minded the brevity of this scene, but their discussion raised questions that were not roughout the whole book the plot felt week. The only part that I felt was truly well developed was when Cinder was introduced, there was mystery about him and he moved the storyline alone with the other characters, but his actions ended up being completely predictable in the end when he saved Perry and Aria. One nice surprise was at the end when Vale's real intentions came out. Most of the ending was foreseeable and uninspiring, but I was surprised by what had happened with Vale. In the end this book didn't keep my attention enough to create me wish to read more. I still have unanswered questions that I assume would be answered in the next book, but I don't think this one captivated me enough to read on.

    I absolutely LOVED the Under the Never Sky trilogy, and want I could give more than 5 stars! Besides Veronica Rossi's writing being superb, here are my three highlights without any recounts or spoilers (okay, mostly no spoilers)...1. "A million ways to die. One method to live." Both Perry's and Aria's points of view demonstrate the tagline perfectly. I'm not normally a fan of more than one POV, but the author executed the POVs very well. I loved both characters equally! Their journeys -- individual, yet entwined -- were arced well within each book, but especially across the series.2. If you read my reviews, you know I'm a fan of romance. With this series, the romance is a lot without being too much. The romance scenes are heart-pounding from an emotional perspective, eloquently woven within the plot. (For those of you looking for clean reads, the physical components are mostly only implied, but characters do engage in premarital relations.)MY LAST HIGHLIGHT IS A SPOILER: IF YOU DON'T WANT TO KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THE ENDING, STOP READING.3. Perry and Aria obtain their happily-ever-after! My only {tiny} gripe is that I want the latest stage included both Perry and Aria. Roar is amazing too, but...well, I loved the romance and wanted to end on that note. Although, that does remind me that friendships were necessary to moving to the plot along well, none more than Roar' a disclaimer, I only reviews books I can honestly give a positive rating.

    Under the Never Sky []  2020-1-14 19:29

    I've been wanting to read Under the Never Sky for so long, and I'm glad that I finally picked it up. Veronica Rossi's debut blends together a dystopian globe with peril at every corner, memorable characters, and a sweet romance between two teens from totally various a Dweller, Aria has lived her entire life under the sanctuary of the Pods. In the Pods, plants are chemically altered, humans are genetically perfected, and nothing poor happens. People can escape "the real" into what's called "Realms", alternate realities in which you can be anything you wish to be.But the issue with this is that these people are completely sheltered from the cruelty of the outside world, where aether storms (electrical chemical storms) threaten the Outsiders (those who live outside the pods). People like Perry. Perry has a amazing heart and wants to do right by everyone, especially his small nephew, Talon. So what happens when Aria is suddenly exposed to the outside globe where there is "a million ways to die"? You'll have to read to search out!My favorite part about this book was the relationship between Aria and Perry. Much of the book is focused on them getting to know one another and learning to trust one another. Dwellers and Outsiders are natural enemies. But both Perry and Aria are forced to leave their own lives and are thrust into the harsh elements outside the Pods and outside the protection of Perry's tribe. They can't stand each other, but they have to work together to search the people they love. Both had to earn the other's respect and I love watching that happen. And of course I loved watching them fall in love.I loved Perry! As I've said before, one of the reasons I love young adult is because (most of the time) the heroes are not mega alpha douchebags. Perry was the excellent example of a powerful character with an almost-innate need to protect and support others. There were several times throughout their journey that he could have left Aria behind but he couldn't do it. Even though he didn't like her at all (at first), he protected her, nursed her wounds, and created sure she had food. All of these things created me love him.I thought Rossi did a amazing job giving the reader bits and pieces of the globe without dumping a ton of info onto the reader and, in effect, drowning them in globe building. I loathe information dumping. Though, there were some elements of the globe that I want had been explained more, like the whole fractioning business, the aether storms, what happened during the Unity. I was able to deduce what these things were after awhile, but I really wanted a small more ere was one awkward moment that I was both satisfied and creeped out about. That was the stage where Aria got her period for the first time. On one hand, I was glad that this was actually talked about in a dystopian novel. On the other, it was soooooo awkward because Perry is a Scire and has a heightened sense of smell. He knew she was menstruating because he could smell it. Um...gross but props for it being brought up?I always love it when books start with a ton of action and leave the protagonist in a precarious position. That's what happens in Under the Never Sky. This book had amazing momentum and it kept me interested from beginning to 'll definitely wish to have Into the Still Blue ready when you obtain to the end Whoa! One note about the ending: I loved it! It didn't really end on a cliffhanger in the sense that there was "action, action, action, and then an 'oh crap' moment." To me this ending felt like we were interrupted in the middle of something anticipated, like you exhaled and then suddenly couldn't take your next breath. Thankfully, all the books are out. :)

    Under the Never Sky []  2020-1-14 19:29

    I read most of it via audiobook, so I'm wondering if my 3star review has more to do with the tenor of the audio than the book itself? So take it with a grain of e story concept is actually really amazing and special - which I think is sort of hard to do with so a lot of dystopian post-apocalyptic novels out there. But the story plodded along like an old mule for about the first...80%. It was just interesting enough for me to see it through to the end, but there were definitely a few times in the middle of the book where I asked myself "is this worth my time right now?" A major reason I didn't quit (other than the fact that I HATE to do that, especially if the book is actually written well and not a glorified fan fic) was how much I didn't wish to find for a fresh at being said, the end gave me just enough to agree to sign on for the next book. I'm worried that it may continue it's plodding. And maybe I'll opt to actually read-read it with my own emphases and see if I was more turned off by the audio than the book itself. So yea, solid three stars. I wasn't entirely hanging on the edge of my seat and I really think there was that kind of potential there.

    Let's face it: with over 700 reviews, mine is hardly needed. Veronica Rossi's "YA Dystopian Trilogy" obviously received a landslide of positive responses. But I'm putting in my "two cents" because of how shocked I was to search that the so called "helpful critical reviews" showed such lousy evaluation skills. *Stop right there! I don't mean people need to agree with me!* I'm just disappointed that high schools and colleges are still churning out people with such sub-par critical thinking and writing skills. It's even more frightening that it's probably the opinions voiced by mature adults as well as teenaged readers. Oy vey!One person complained that there was only "one tame scene". Oh, yeah: that's a amazing basis for demoting a story's value. Hello! This is YA fiction: most don't even have massive petting. If you wish lots of laden stories, don't read young adult books like this, (or "Hunger Games" or "Divergent", etc.) because the plots aren't centered around sex.Another reviewer complained about the futuristic vocabulary: She was totally bewildered by the term "Blood-Lord", used by the outside people. You know, that's the only person everyone is following around and obeying, who's wearing a large necklace. Oh yeah, and the word "Lord" is so confusing. Pop Quiz: the Outsiders' "Blood Lords" are (a)Tribal Leaders, (b)Tribal blood-letters, or (c) Tribal Rock Stars. This is such a disappointing comment for even a 10 year old to have ill others were equally short-sighted: Some found the lead characters (Perry and Aria) to be flawed. Why, in particular? Because their actions and thoughts were inconsistent. In fact, they even seemed to have identity crises. Hello again!In this book they're 17! On what planet do teenagers have consistent behaviors? (In one day they will act on completely opposite attitudes towards parents! "Drop me off a mile from school...I'm embarrassed to be seen with you" to "My back is itchy: could you scratch it like you used to when I was little?" And that's just in a period of 4 hours). If the writing is inconsistent, and the characters' actions or comments don't add up, then there's reason to complain. But what if the characters in a story act like real-life teenagers do? What if we're supposed to see this fantasy globe through the eyes of a younger person, or in the immature names they use for each other? When an author bases her hero development on true people (who can all be saints or sinners) then that person is a skilled I said in the beginning, with hundreds of ardent admirers giving this series such a high rating, I don't even need to rescue the author's reputation. All in all, Veronica Rossi's first books were outstanding examples of amazing writing "chops", globe building, suspense building, well rounded & interesting characters, etc. Okay, Okay, I'll back down a bit: there are some legitimate problems, in that one particular villain was a predictable, generic sociopath, and the two Stars did at times escape danger a bit too conveniently. People noted things like that, I agree with such comments. What I'm taking problem with is unrealistic expectations as the cause for downgrading a story.On the whole, I'd like to remind readers, that the beauty of this book - of any book - is that we can have fun reading about characters who evolve, who can begin their minds, who forgive, who re-evaluate themselves, struggle with moral decision making, who intelligently adjust to their situations, but who still create serious mistakes, or are still judgmental, or keep onto annoying qualities (as most humans do). We don't need YA dystopian books with lots of sex, overpowering flippant teenage dialect, or predictable personalities. Sixteen year olds don't learn anything by reading futuristic tales about what's in their own back yards, and adults wouldn't have fun that much either. I do believe that these books were excellent, and I'd hope that those who disagree at least use logical reasoning ronica Rossi has made the refreshing alternative to the typical generic paranormal and dystopian [email protected]#$%!&ing the shop in a hail storm. We'd be in a sorry state if all of the best of these books were formulaic. When you read a book like this, test to flow with it for a while without expecting it to adhere to a pattern you've enjoyed in the past. For me, it's the stories with a refreshingly fresh take on the same theme that satisfy the most. It's the authors who know how to make their own special writing style, and stick with it, who give us a gift. And although nay sayers are part of what makes the globe of literature go around, it's a shame some potential reader might turn away from a amazing read like this because of other narrow readers whose opinions are based on narrow minded expectations. -Ozmatoo

    Under the Never Sky []  2020-1-14 19:29

    Under the Never Sky takes put in what I am assuming is our future, during a time when risky Aether storms create it risky to live outdoors. Most humans have retreated into "pods," where they waste their days using a device called Smarteyes to enter the Realms (aka: The Matrix). Aria is a pod-dweller who has lost contact with her mother. In a desperate attempt to communicate with her again, Aria enlists the support of Soren (a complete and total JERK) and, when things go very, very wrong, she finds herself kicked out of the pods and forced to live outside. Some humans still survive in the wilderness, however, and Aria soon meets Perry, the boy who could be her salvation...or her rst of all, I really don't recommend the audiobook ver of Under the Never Sky. The narrator was completely awful. Every chapter told from Perry's point of view was told in a weird husky voice that was incredibly distracting. But honestly, I don't really recommend this book as a whole, either. I had a lot of problems with this book, primarily with the globe building, pacing, and hero development.Let's dig into the globe building first. Pod life could have been so interesting to learn about, but few info were given and the ones that were didn't create a ton of sense. There were so a lot of really cool technological developments, but nothing was explained. I would have also really appreciated a small bit of history about when the Aether storms started and the humans retreated into pod life. Even just a page or two of explanation here or there would have created such a difference and allow me obtain more immersed in the story. Something that was also incredibly confusing was the fact that some Outsiders are Seers. However, Seers in this story are people with a heightened sense of sight. Seer is not used in the traditional sense, like it is in every other piece of literature you've ever read. The main issue is that this wasn't explained until the 50% mark! I read half the book thinking characters were doing something different! If you are going to use a word and give it a meaning other than its traditional one, you NEED to explain that before the halfway point of the book!I found the pacing to be incredibly off in Under the Never Sky as well. The story started out with an action-packed stage and then NOTHING HAPPENED FOR HUNDREDS OF PAGES. There was a small bit of excitement around the 70% tag and then, once again, nothing happened. I felt like I spent hours of my life just watching Perry and Aria wander around the wilderness. Pages and pages and pages of no action or plot development to speak of. I was so bored during most of this e characters also left a lot to be desired. Aria was so mind-numbingly STUPID. Her idiocy was so distracting that I honestly can't even think of any other characteristics of her character. All I know is that she smells like violets. Which leads us to Perry and his super-sniffer. Perry has superhuman smell, to the point where he can smell a person's emotions. These powers are once again not really explained and don't create much sense. But if I had to hear Perry talking about how Aria smelled like violets ONE MORE TIME, I was going to have to throw my phone out the window. I obtain it, smell is very necessary to him. But FIND A DIFFERENT WAY TO DESCRIBE HER. Using the same descriptors on every other page is sloppy and uncreative writing.Ok, can I rant now? Can I, can I, can I?????? (I will not be offended if you choose to skip over the rant and head straight to my conclusion. Although, you could be in for a amazing laugh...)*cracks knuckles*Let's do this...The first problem I encountered with Under the Never Sky is the sheer stupidity of Aria and all pod dwellers. The book opens with a bunch of teenagers deciding to disable their Smarteyes for the night. They are all so mystified by everything they are seeing in true life for the first time. They've seen fruit in the realms, but now they are seeing it growing for true in their greenhouses. The thing that bothers me about this is the the Smarteyes only cover their left eye. So why have none of these people ever just USED THEIR RIGHT EYE TO LOOK AROUND???? And before you test to convince me that the intelligent eyes tap into their brains, therefore providing them with a fully-immersive 4D experience...there is a stage where someone tries on a Smarteye and can see the Realms and the room they are sitting in. So I don't wish to hear ck to Perry the super-sniffer. There is a stage where Aria gets her first period ever (at 17) and Perry has to explain what it is to her. And the reason he realizes that she has her period is because she starts smelling like violets. SERIOUSLY???? I wish to live in a future where periods smell like violets because that could not be farther from the truth in our world. Aria is shocked and disgusted that she has her period because in pod life all babies are made in a lab, therefore eliminating the need for menstruation. BUT HOW? You can't just DECIDE you don't need periods anymore and obtain rid of them. This is just another aspect of pod life that is never explained and infuriates ly, allow us discuss the 42,678,392 instances of cliches and tropes used in this book. I don't wish to give a lot away, but trust me, they're there. OF COURSE Perry just happens to be the only Outsider who has his unique type of superpower. OF COURSE the people with Perry's superpower just happen to be more handsome than everyone ere are a ton of more trope-y things that happen in this book, but I really don't wish to spoil right, I need to stop now. I think I've said my peace and it's time for me to stop ranting. I know a lot of people really adore this series, and I do apologize if it is one of your favorites. I give you permission to tear one of my favorites to shreds. As you can see, I had a lot of problems with this book, and I can say with absolute certainty that I will not be spending my time continuing on with the , that was a lot of fun to write...

    Under the Never Sky was a really amazing read. I loved the hero development. You really either loved getting to know the hero better or you really hated the character. I love that when I'm reading; I think it is the most necessary aspect for me in a story. And I look forward to getting to know each hero more in the next e story is special and entertaining. The author describes the globe as it is really well and you can really visualize both parts of it. There were some things that you knew would happen; a bit predictable, but then other things that were very unpredictable. I think it was a beautiful amazing mix.I still don't really understand what Aether is and I really want that had been explained further, but we will see if that is explained in the next books. I did really have fun reading this one.

    ***4.5/5 Stars***It took me a few chapters to become immersed in the story and wrap my head around their world. But once I did, I fell madly in love with Under The Never Sky! I loved how the story continually built with fascinating ideas. I loved how rich and soulful the characters were. And I absolutely loved how my emotions tangled together and parts kept my heart beating quick for a myriad of reasons. Under The Never Sky was such a attractive story, and I can't wait to see where this series goes!Aria has lived her whole life in a dome, where they spend their time dually within their true globe and a virtual one. The reason they live in the domes was beyond special to me - aether flows in the sky. It's a mixture of fire and water which builds together to make deadly storms that singe and destroy everything in it's path that it touches. And of course once I started to obtain a amazing grasp on Aria and the globe she lived in, she was thrown outside the dome. To die alone. Yet that's not what happened.....Aria meets Perry, an outsider who she refers to as a savage. They are people who live outside the dome and have learned to survive the torrential land. While Aria needs Perry to support survive, Perry needs Aria too, for reasons I can't say haha. I loved that this unlikely duo had to squad up to obtain what they wanted. Especially since they are opponents with a very flimsy peace in place. But the best part?! We obtain to hear both of their voices! We alternate chapters between Perry and Aria and hearing their internal thoughts was so excellent and helpful, especially since they were amazing at wearing masks *cough Perry cough*. I found myself caught up in their struggles and hoping that their hatred status could move to friendship. Or even more!Perry easily comes across to Aria as a heartless, killing, @#$%!&?. And if you know me, I have a weakness for those lol! Yes he was a jerk at times. But his actions spoke volumes for what he was capable of not saying. It showed that he was loyal, caring, thoughtful and someone who you would wish to have your back in their horrific world. I fell so unbelievably hard for Perry. Especially with his past and current decisions that he created in life *clutches heart*. He's definitely going on my favorite tortured heroes list. And he's someone I hope you all obtain to meet.Which created me question Aria as his travel companion, since she could seem so unsure of herself. But all I had to do was wait a small while, because she grew so much! Aria started to present her real colors when she wouldn't back down to Perry, and when I kept seeing how she hated having to rely on someone to survive. She wanted to learn. She wanted to survive on her own. She was a warrior through and through and never gave in easily. She was on a direct path to becoming brave and fearless like Perry, and as one of my favorite Heroines. I can't wait to see how much more she'll grow with the next two books. Okay, all this talk is making me antsy.....I have to see what happens next! I am off to begin Through The Ever Night, and if you haven't picked up this book yet I highly recommend you do!

    Under the Never Sky []  2020-1-14 19:29

    This started off intense and I was hooked from the very beginning. It was a book I did not wish to place down. I’ve known about this book for a while and I regret not starting this series with a lot of other dystopian novels, the story started out at a time in the future when Earth isn’t in very amazing condition. However, this book still felt fresh to me. Maybe it’s because of the contrasting concepts: modern and primitive. Aether storms are forcing people to live in pods for safety but for the of experiencing everything virtually. But there were some who weren't lucky and were forced to survive outside.What I loved most about this book are the characters. Perry isn’t described as excellent but he is amazing where it matters. Aria isn’t a damsel in distress, despite being thrust into a globe she had no idea how to survive. They are the kind of characters you root for.And the romance. Don’t obtain me started on the romance. It was slow burn, but definitely not frustrating. It created me anticipate what’s about to happen which kept me really going, reading until the wee hours of the morning. I love, love books that create me do only complaint about this book is that even though it is written in both Aria and Perry’s point of view, the author wrote them in the third person. I would have liked it more and it would have created me feel closer to the characters if it was in the first person.

    Into the Still Blue (Under the Never Sky Book 3) []  2020-7-23 19:55

    I enjoyed reading the latest book of the series, it was such a amazing journey! This has spoilers!! I honestly did have a few minor issues with this latest book though. It was really slow paced in a lot of locations throughout the book which bugged me but don't obtain me wrong it has plenty of action, I just want that the parts where they are captive aren't so slow but anyways I also want that the whole Cinder thing was more clear at the end, like what exactly happened? I also wished that Perry would've stayed blood Lord or at least been a part of the council at the end because he's such a amazing leader and seems like he was just born to lead so that didn't feel right at the end when he gave it up. So besides those few things that bugged me I did have fun it and especially love the series as a whole. I really enjoyed this latest book but want I would've loved it as much as the first two. I absolutely fell in love with all the characters and loved seeing them grow, I feel as though Perry is a true person, she shaped him so well and i love everything about his character. Aria grew so much and turned into such a amazing leader. Roar had his hard times as much as everyone else but managed to be his charming self in the end. Love this series and am so glad I read it!

    Into the Still Blue (Under the Never Sky Book 3) []  2020-7-23 19:55

    [...]I've place off writing this review for a while, and I just can't put my finger on why. After crossing off busyness (I lolled about watching TV when I had time this week), sickness (a small runny nose never hindered writing), and laziness (I really did wish to write about something, anything), I've come to the conclusion that I didn't really feel like there was much to say about this book. "Into the Still Blue" is the finale to Veronica Rossi's "Under the Never Sky" trilogy, bringing Aria and Perry's journey to an end. But was it as new and exciting as its two predecessors? I can't say I know for e race to the Still Blue has come to an uneasy stalemate. Sable and Hess have taken Cinder, the only person who can control the deadly Aether storms, but to no avail. The Dwellers and Outsiders, who are united only in their fear of their desperate situation, are confined within a cave they are using as their makeshift refuge. With Roar blinded by grief and loss, Perry and Aria know that it's up to them to do something. Out of options, they assemble an unlikely squad for an impossible rescue mission, one that will try their loyalties, courage and love. With time running out, can Perry and Aria support those they love--and hold their love for each other intact?Let me begin off with the characters. The entire novel alternates between Aria and Perry's points of view, which I think was a amazing decision since it gives us a more holistic perspective of what's going on in the story and allows us to create connections as readers. Not to mention it provides ample excitement with lots of potential for dramatic irony! To me, both Aria and Perry are fairly interesting and engaging protagonists to follow throughout the entire trilogy. They come from two very various backgrounds, have various personalities and face various responsibilities. They're both mature at this point in the story, and I really liked the method they worked together as a couple in the face of such enormous responsibilities to lead the Dwellers and Outsiders to a safe haven. But what kept me from becoming really invested in these two characters was that they didn't entirely stand out to me. They kind of lost the "spark" that created them special individuals in the first two books, though I guess given the amazing of hero development in the previous books, it's understandable. This is not to say that they were flat, boring characters--they just weren't as exciting as they were of the characters I did search exciting, though, was, as always, Roar. What happened in the latest book in the trilogy obviously has a large impact on Roar, and the method he struggled with these feelings of loss and grief was really believable and saddening to read about. Yet what makes Roar, well, Roar, is his ability to still be himself, even if he's lost in anger and thoughts of revenge. Take, for example, his interactions with Sable's son (I can't for the life of me remember what his name is--sorry!). There's some humorous banter going on between the two, which reminds us of Roar's wit and dry humour. And that's what I love about Roar--he's such a three-dimensional character, with layers and layers of thought and emotion to him. I'm sure if you were to read this trilogy, you'd fall for him, too.What I think ultimately allow me down when I was reading "Into the Still Blue" was the plot. I just don't think it's all that memorable. Admittedly, Ms. Rossi does a amazing job with tying up loose ends and giving us a satisfying ending, but the storyline itself wasn't as compelling as it could've been. Sure, quite a few things happen, but they just didn't excite me as much as they could have. The climax, for example, wasn't as amazing of a climax as it could've been. From my recollection of the story, it was a lot of running around and shooting people. Don't obtain me wrong, the story was most definitely not boring nor did it induce yawns out of me--it just wasn't as scintillating, and didn't obtain me hooked.Overall, "Into the Still Blue" is a fairly amazing ending to the "Under the Never Sky" trilogy, though I wouldn't say that it was the most memorable method to end it. I would still give it a read, especially if you've read the first two books, since you may search it more exciting!Rating: 3/5

    Into the Still Blue (Under the Never Sky Book 3) []  2020-7-23 19:55

    “Into the Still Blue” is the latest installment in the Under the never sky series. In this latest novel we follow Perry, Aria and the gang as they test to rescue Cinder and travel to the legendary Still Blue.Overall this entire series was riveting. It was quick paced, action packed, and intriguing with a special concept. I enjoyed every installment. The latest installment wrapped up every loose end and yet left the story in put where if Rossi chose to continue on with it she so to my astonishment this globe still had a few surprises left. One of them I didn’t see coming and the other I knew would happen, but I was still fighting versus it when it did. Kudos to Rossi for making an unpredictable this installment we obtain to see brutal battles, friendships forge and romance burn. All of these created it a amazing read and I would highly recommend this series to any YA fan looking for a special science fiction story that’s easily consumable.

    Into the Still Blue (Under the Never Sky Book 3) []  2020-7-23 19:55

    Aria and Perry have never had it easy. Coming from two various world, a burnt-out wasteland and a domed uber-tech fortress, was only the beginning of their differences. But Dwellers (inside the dome) and Outsiders all have one thing in common. They wish to reach the Still Blue where the Aether storms can't ravage everything they know and love about life. Into the Still Blue is the conclusion to Veronica Rossi's Under the Never Sky, and it holds your heart in its hand to the latest the fresh Blood Lord of the Tides, Perry is now responsible for everyone in what was once his brother's tribe. Now that Aria has returned to him, he feels he can face that responsibility. But the fact that Cinder, the boy who can control the Aether, was kidnapped haunts him. The psychopath leader of the Horn Tribe, Sable, and Soren's father, leader of the domed town Reverie, Hess, have joined forces to do everything they can to obtain to through the wall of Aether to the Still Blue, even if it means kidnapping and using a small boy like Cinder. They knew Perry, Aria, Roar and the others wouldn't allow them obtain away with it, either. In fact, they counted on rry's plan is to attack the Komodo, a giant moving town that is slowly creeping to the edge of the Aether. With the support of Soren, a former Dweller, they can fly the hover craft to the Komodo, rescue Cinder, and obtain back to their people in time to escape the incoming final Aether storm that will eradicate anything still living inside the burning, toxic wasteland. The issue is that Dwellers and Outsiders don't play well together. Both Perry's group and the group inside the Komodo are ravaged by a lack of trust and faith in one another. When you are constantly watching over your shoulder to create sure your partner doesn't stab you in the back, it is hard to see the opponent who isn't afraid to stab you in the heart. The one thing keeping the survivors from the Still Blue might just be themselves.I have followed this series since the first book was released, and I have never once been disappointed, including this finale. It was a method to bring the story full circle and deliver a conclusion that would create Rossi's fans proud. There was no slump from the first page of book one to the latest page of book three, and I am really glad I found this series. With such dystopia burnout out there, it is hard to pick your favorites, but this is certainly one of mine. There is a excellent mixture of hope and despair that keeps you through this hull of a globe to obtain to the put we all hoped existed. These characters have all lost so much that you couldn't support yourself but to hope there really was an oasis in the face of such destruction.While the story itself and the world-building, are beautiful phenomenal, the real winners are Perry and Aria. Both are loyal to a fault, and Perry's loyalty to Cinder has to be my favorite. He cares for the boy to the point of staying with him on a mission that can only lead to certain dead for both of them. It is really unbelievable to search a male lead like Perry who we all hope our sons and students can grow up to be like (without the apocalyptic landscape of course!). And Aria is a young woman for our girls to look up to as well. She understands the difference between her own hopes and desires and her responsibility to the people who trust her, and she faces difficult decisions with grace and determination. I loved watching the two of them together. But don't discount the supporting characters! If you don't love Soren and Roar as much as I did, there has to be something wrong with you! It is just sad knowing their story is over, even if it was the excellent ending!

    **This is the final installment in a trilogy, so this review will involve things that happened in the previous two books, if you haven't read them, then you should stop reading here.**I hope I will be able to search the words to describe how much I LOVE this book. I think as a book lover, sometimes endings to trilogies and series can leave me unsatisfied. Sometimes it is just because I didn't care for the method that the book ended. Sometimes the main hero doesn't end up with the person you wish them to. And sometimes you just search the ending abrupt, leaving you with more questions then answers.I did not feel that method with this book. I did feel like the ending came too soon, not because it was abrupt, but more because I was not ready to leave this world. I wanted more Aria, Perry and Roar. I don't wish their story to be over.And I think that my sadness about the story being over just further proves how much I love this series.But I accept that it is time for the series to end, and I am glad that I liked the ending.I think Veronica Rossi is an AMAZING writer! Seriously she is wonderful. For me her writing flows so smoothly that I don't even realize how far I am into the book until I stop and look. Then I usually freak out, thinking "NO!!! It is going to end soon. I wish more!"The Characters:I love all these characters. They are all so well written!She made unbelievable relationships. Not just lovey-dovey relationships. But also some of the strongest friendships that I have ever read.And I feel she shows all the sides. The tough times and the best times. Mates fight. Mates can become jealous of one another and even jealous of their other friends' relationship/friendship. But more importantly mates can overcome these obstacles and this book, Perry and Roar's friendship is strained. And Roar is in a poor put all together. I feel so heartbroken for him. Perry and Aria's relationship has some pressure on it too. Perry is upset for what happened in Through the Ever Night. And I also thought that Perry is a bit upset over the really close friendship that Aria and Roar ia and Roar.. Their friendship is amazing. I LOVE IT! And when I read the first book, Under the Never Sky, I was a small concerned. I was worried that there was going to be a love triangle between Aria, Roar and Perry. And part of me did wish there to be...because I really love Roar. But I am glad that there isn't.Which means I can have Roar, right?We obtain to see Perry and Aria work through their relationship and fix things that might have been strained from when Aria took off with Roar without telling e Story:I loved the story. I thought it was an awesome continuation of a story that I have come to really love. The main characters are trying to search a better put to live. They encounter problems and issues along the way. And I loved getting to read about these situations.I found this book to be full of some surprises that I didn't see coming. There were a few that I was able to guess about, but I didn't think that it took away from the book.We obtain to "watch" our loved characters overcome struggles. Aria is struggling with an injury, Perry is struggling with doing what is best for his people, and Roar is struggling with Olivia's death.I do think there were times where the writing brought some tears to my eyes.But overall, I am happy with the ending. (I do want that it didn't have to end, but I know that it had to.)This is easily one of my favorite series, and I am so glad that I read this series. And I will read anything else Veronica Rossi writes because I love her writing and think she is amazing.

    Into the Still Blue (Under the Never Sky Book 3) []  2020-7-23 19:55

    The war is true – with this conclusion to the trilogy ‘Into the Still Blue’ brings about all the physical war versus the elements and each other in hope to search an Oasis from a decaying environment and factions struggling for power. On the surface the plot is outstanding, but the delivery felt a somewhat lukewarm.I felt Aria finally got her sea-legs. In the previous novels I felt she bounced around between place, people and conviction. As much as I did not connect with her, I appreciated her rry just seemed to struggle. From the begin - right to the end... and I think that is just who he is. So that left me kind of meh!I think I was more excited about the dog Flea in this novel. The mention of him always brought a smile to my felt masterfully crafted, though I must admit I never really connected with Aria or Perry throughout this trilogy; and something about the writing style had me wandering away from the book quite a lot. It's not that it was boring, I just never felt compelled to read on.I feel like I wish to say that the supporting characters had more depth than our two protagonists. Maybe because Aria and Perry were so single minded. So serious. That their narrative came across slightly monotone. There was no fluctuation in ambience and ere wasn't anything that struck me as particularly wrong with this concluding novel, just there was something missing. I think the dual perspective, again, gave too a lot of answers and info for the story, eliminating a amazing opportunity to up the tension.On the topic of loss and Death - I was a small on the fence with how this was dealt with. There were varying degrees of impact from the loss of certain characters. I felt more importance and compassion should have been considered. It would have also created for a much more poignant conclusion. I also did not like how murder and killing were handled either. Again, the facts were mostly glossed over to move the story along. When it would have been a amazing opportunity to up the emotion and paint a picture of devastation, brutality, and inevitability of the war for survival versus nature, and each e plot unravelled very organically and I never felt the hand of the author guiding along the story. Though, the writing style did not paint a detailed enough picture of the globe for me. I still have problem picturing the main characters and the landscape they live in. Some aspects are crystal clear, but others felt washed out.I liked the tone the novel ended on and how the storyline wrapped up. But I was still hoping for more mythology from this dystopian globe to explore. Obtain some more technology in this sci-fi. Oh well…It's not a series I would recommend to mates - it's okay. But there are much more entertaining collections out there.

    I absolutely LOVED the Under the Never Sky trilogy, and want I could give more than 5 stars! Besides Veronica Rossi's writing being superb, here are my three highlights without any recounts or spoilers (okay, mostly no spoilers)...1. "A million ways to die. One method to live." Both Perry's and Aria's points of view demonstrate the tagline perfectly. I'm not normally a fan of more than one POV, but the author executed the POVs very well. I loved both characters equally! Their journeys -- individual, yet entwined -- were arced well within each book, but especially across the series.2. If you read my reviews, you know I'm a fan of romance. With this series, the romance is a lot without being too much. The romance scenes are heart-pounding from an emotional perspective, eloquently woven within the plot. (For those of you looking for clean reads, the physical components are mostly only implied, but characters do engage in premarital relations.)MY LAST HIGHLIGHT IS A SPOILER: IF YOU DON'T WANT TO KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THE ENDING, STOP READING.3. Perry and Aria obtain their happily-ever-after! My only {tiny} gripe is that I want the latest stage included both Perry and Aria. Roar is amazing too, but...well, I loved the romance and wanted to end on that note. Although, that does remind me that friendships were necessary to moving to the plot along well, none more than Roar' a disclaimer, I only reviews books I can honestly give a positive rating.

    Into the Still Blue is the final installment in the Under the Never Sky series by Veronica Rossi. It continues the story of Aria and Perry. Aria is recovering from a gunshot wound she received while trying to rescue her mates and other Dwellers from the pod society where she’d grown up. Cinder, a young boy in Perry's tribe, has been kidnapped because of his ability to control Aether, the weird energy storms that devastate the countryside and are destroying the earth. Cinder is required to reach the Still Blue, a land that supposedly exists where the skies are calm and blue, and the land is not burnt and destroyed. Aria and Perry must search a method to rescue Cinder and lead the Tides tribe to safety in the Still , what a series. This has been one of the most enjoyable dystopian series I have ever read. I have praised the author's characterizations in her other books. They stay real in this novel, too. There is action, heartbreak, suspense, danger and romance. I raced through the second half of this book on a sick day home. I couldn’t place it down until I finished it.If I have one complaint at all about this final book and the series conclusion it is that the villain does not suffer enough. He meets his end, but it happens so fast. All along he has known what others are plotting and planning and no one seems to be able to outsmart him. He was such a vile, horrible man who tortured and killed others without batting an eyelash that I thought he should have suffered more. I had to go back and re-read the war and death stage because it was over so quickly. He was rapidly overcome (what happened to his knowing what everyone was planning?), and his ending was so fast (suddenly he is slower and weaker?). It was hard to feel closure and satisfaction. It sounds bloodthirsty on my part, but it wasn't enough. Also, he was killed by one character, but I would have preferred another hero getting his revenge on this horrible l in all, this was a amazing series, though, and I highly recommend it.

    I won't go into the plot. Other reviewers have mentioned it, and it's talked about in the blurb for the book what can I say about it? I can tell you that I finished it in less than day. And I can say is that this is the best YA/dystopian series I've read. Yes, even better than that bestseller turned box office hit. I briefly considered the possibilities of this series going the Hollywood method eventually, but I think this story needs to stay in the imagination. Don't obtain me wrong; I'd definitely go watch just to see how it translated to the screen. I just don't think it could measure up. Message I said "story" as opposed to "book." It was so much more than a book. Ms. Rossi's writing style is uniquely her own. She puts in hero quirks, subtle nuances that we'd actually message if this story were to unfold before us. This is what makes the story "real," so to speak. It helps to bring the characters we've become so fond of to life. Their struggles become our struggles. Their pain becomes our pain. Their love becomes our love. This is the real tag of a unbelievable author, and I, for one, can't wait to see what Ms. Rossi brings us tom line? If you're holding out due to the disappointment of Allegiant (seriously, we all felt it), don't. If you haven't committed to the series, please do. You won't regret it. Bravo, Ms. Rossi.

    Holy moly, guys. This book was everything I hoped it would be. It was action and adventure and romance and mystery and danger and fantasy and just everything I wanted it to be. I've loved this trilogy from the beginning, and I am so glad that this latest book did it all justice. The ending was perfect, the characters are incredible, the globe building is fantastic, and the Still Blue is what I wanted it to be. I could go on and on and on about how wonderful this book (and the whole trilogy, really) is, but I'll test to hold it to a manageable of my favorite things about this book was the hero development. We've seen Aria and Perry change and grow and mature over the course of the whole series, and they still continue to do that here. They have to create decisions and choices that are unlike anything they've ever dealt with, and I really did not envy them for most of the time. They create mistakes, but they learn from them and test not to create the same mistakes again. Their relationship has its snags, but they work things out because they love each other. They trust each other and the decisions they make, and understand the reasoning when they might not agree or might have wanted another outcome.But you'd expect all that from the main characters, right? My favorite part of the hero growth was in the secondary characters - in Soren, Roar, Jupiter, and Brooke. The characters that we know, but haven't necessarily had a possibility to experience yet. Soren has always been the child that got Aria into this whole mess to start with. He's a Dweller that cannot search any amazing in Perry and his tribe. I honestly think his hero changed the most throughout this book, and I loved watching him being place in his put and then giving some sass right back. It often helped to break the tension, and was understated enough that it didn't seem out of place. I could talk about Roar all day (he's my absolute favorite hero in the whole series), but I thought that him trying to work through the grief of losing Liv was really interesting and it felt so real.I also enjoyed learning more about the Aether and the Still Blue and the Komodo. You'd think that by this point there wouldn't be much world-building left to do. But Rossi really surprised me by expanding the globe even further and giving a richer history and a fuller understanding of things. I have very few unanswered questions left about the world, and I think that created the ending that much more the rest of the series, this book is beautiful fast-paced. Once Perry and Aria and squad obtain into the action, it's beautiful much non-stop until the end. I found myself not wanting to place this book down, and ended up staying up into the wee hours of the morning trying to search out what was going to happen next! I'm so sad that Perry and Aria's story is over now, but I am glad it ended the method it did. I felt all of the feels, and definitely came out of it happy with the story.I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who has read the other books in this series. You do NOT wish to miss this thrilling, attractive conclusion! I would also recommend this series to anyone looking for a futuristic dystopian YA book. Especially fans of sci-fi/fantasy. I think readers who enjoyed The Maze Runner will really like this book too. 5/5!

    I guess I read too much into the title of this and didn't any attention to the description. Most of the songs on this cd are NOT Moroccan. It's songs from the festival in Fez, so it's a compilation of African songs in Arabic. The songs aren't bad, just don't create the mistake I did and think most of the songs will be Moroccan.

In addition, navigating the menus is a small bit of a nightmare, as it can create it very unclear where your progress has ended. Lastly, the graphic showing how far though a "chapter" you are are FAR too small, and the tapping to obtain to the next level is simply annoying.

    I really like Daniel’s books. They are fast reads & they are sweet stories that drives home a point quickly as it seems he pulls you into a moment in time. He focuses usually on farm/Amish themes mostly, but they always seem their own story and not a rehash. This story had a storyline I didn’t see coming and was a total surprise to me!! I also wanted to note this story had actual on page which I wasn’t sure he’d ever write as his book have a amazing appeal to young adult readers.I can’t wait for his next book.

The controls are very simple, the graphics are beautiful, the melody is soothing, and it's challenging without being story difficult. Glad I stumbled upon this! It'd be nice if text on the screen was much bigger - it's tiny! But not a breaker for me, obviously. I play on a moto x and it's working great.

    Amazing game. Very relaxing, especially with the timer disabled in options (though it's nice to have the ability to turn it on if I wish to work on better times). No stuttering whatsoever on my Shield tablet. Attractive graphics, though they could be a bit more vivid, even with all the fancy items enabled in the options menu. Still, very enjoyable overall. I'll probably hold this android game for quite awhile.

    Edit: Error gone, android game works now When I first installed the android game I got Error 3003 (or similar), not sllowing me to play the game. However, multiple un- and reinstalls fixed the issue. The android game is beautifully designed and looks stunning. The controls are simple to learn, the puzzles are challenging but not up to the point where they become ridiculously hard. It's a fun, beautiful, challenging and relaxing android game all at once. Very nice! I finished it and now I am gonna play for stars :-)

    Amazing potential Could really be a amazing android game if not for the performance issues. The android game stutters constantly on my shield smartphone and xperia z1. I really wish to love this android game but the constant stuttering is a breaker. Its really a shame because this by far one of the most attractive android games out there.

    Under the Sky of Saudi Arabia []  2020-1-23 1:2

    Kamaan Al Kamaan has a real passion for his country, and has obviously worked innumerable hours, often in remote locations, to capture stirring photos of Saudi Arabia in the optimum light. Prior to the publication of this book in 2006 he had won numerous awards for his photography, but this is unquestionably his "magnum opus." The book is approximately 200 pages in length, with no more than one photograph per page (sometimes the photograph extends to two pages.) The book is divided into three sections, roughly equal, based on topic matter. The three locations are: Nature, Life, and Heritage. There appears to have been financial help from several entities, including the Director of the Tourism agency which permitted a high quality edition to be printed in Singapore. The text is minimal, simply identifying the zone with a very brief description of the scene. The book is bi-lingual, Arabic / English, and is formatted with Arabic first, meaning that the book opens, and is paginated the reverse of the standard English Kamaan loves the Asir, the mountainous region in the west of the country, and has captured its essence which shatters the stereotypical view of the country held by all too a lot of non-Saudis as a "big sandbox." The first picture of a garden could have been taken in any European country. To the best of my knowledge, only Pascal and Maria Marechaux have captured the beauty of the western portion of the Arabian Peninsula in such books as "La Route de l'Encens". But Al Kamaan does strike a amazing balance in his landscapes, incorporating the more traditional desert scenes, including the rarely photographed Samman desert in the central region. He managed to capture numerous photos there after one or more rainstorms. The Nature section contains the flora and fauna of the country, including the now protected gazelles and re-introduced Arabian oryx. The author is also a Scuba diver, and there are several underwater photographs, apparently taken around the Farasan e "heart" of the country is depicted in the central section, "Life." Even for those who think that know, and have experienced the country, there are a number of startling images, including paragliding and an international mountain bike race in the Asir region. For me, the most surprising picture was of the Annual Grand Camel Race in Riyadh - the riders are now needed to wear helmets! There are also numerous photos of the participants in the traditional Saudi dance, the "arda," along with more contemporary cultural activities, including dance. For a book with at least some official sponsorship, although photos of men clearly predominate, there are a few photos of the women in everyday activities. Religion, sports, culture, hunting, agriculture, and warm photos of tales around the campfire are the themes in this e final section is devoted to the Heritage of the country, naturally with pictures of the Mismak fort in Riyadh, and the Nabatean tombs in Madain Saleh., but there are also less photographed websites and buildings, and a nod to traditional crafts as re-enacted at the annual National Festival for Heritage and Culture at Kamaan unquestionably had "access," or, as it is so often phrased in the Kingdom, "wasta," based on the numerous aerial photographs. It is not everyone who is permitted to casually fly around! He created amazing use of the wasta, and has produced a solid 5-star book that should be in the library of anyone who has ever been touched by the beauty that is in the Kingdom.

    Cara has been assigned to tutor Josh’s nephew Seth, who has problems with his mother’s abandonment & father overseas in the service. Cara & Josh grew up together & she’s always had a crush on him. Josh has never had a shortage of women to occupy his time. With Cara spending time with Seth it has given Josh the possibility to obtain to know her better. And Cara can’t deny her feelings for Josh have never disappeared. Can Cara look past Josh’s womanizing behavior to see if there is something more between them?This is a one-click author for me & I love rereading her books, especially the first book of any of her series. Cara and Josh are one of my favorite characters & I love revisiting Cunningham Falls!

    Loving Cara: Love Under the Big Sky []  2020-7-3 18:57

    Was a fun light read. I was a bit disappointed in the ending though. I am not a large fan of the misunderstanding causes a large breakdown romantic novel troupe. The heroine eavesdropped on a conversation and assumes she knows what the character is referring to and instead of just asking him like a normal person she panics and leaves. When she leaves she takes to the child in the story to a possibly risky zone without telling anyone where she is going because she is running from something that she thinks the character said that isn’t even true. Then the child gets damage and the character is kind of [email protected]#$% to her about it causing her to run to her mate in another state instead of going to the hospital to be with the kid. Character does the traditional run after the heroine and apologize. Frankly I don’t think he had anything to apologize for in this story. Yes what happened to the child was an accident and yes he was a @#$%. On the other hand, she place a child in danger and left with the child on an outing telling absolutely no one because of something she misunderstood. That is super not acceptable. Followed by her leaving and not being with the child at the hospital after promising him that she would be there for him. Again not cool. I don’t care how damage you are or how annoyed you are at the character of the story you don’t abandon a kid who is hurting and crying about needing you as he goes into surgery. I was supremely @#$%ed at how she behaved at the end and I frankly didn’t feel like Josh required to apologize. Also when he did present up to apologize she has the audacity to act like the most damage party and be abrasive to him. Really rubbed me the wrong way. It’s one thing to allow a stupid misunderstanding damage your relationship. It’s another thing when it puts a child in danger or makes you break a promise to a child because you can’t suck it up and place the kid before yourself.

    You know I have been reading Kristen's books since the first book released and she has never failed me in creating characters that I not only wish to know but wish to be... Seriously she has a flair for making you wish to live the story for yourself. This fresh series is no different! Loving Cara was a unbelievable read I was smitten with Josh from the first words of the book...The setting for this book was probably my favorite thing about it. I have always had a love of horses, as a young girl I used to go to summer camp and horseback ride for two weeks and it was some of the happiest times of my childhood. I connected right away with all the characters. I wanted to punch one of them in the face she is literally a disgrace to mothers everywhere but I won't dwell on her... Cara was just what Seth needed, and even more just what Josh needed. When Cara showed up on the ranch to teach Seth for the summer she had no idea what she would be in for. Seth was going to challenger her at every turn and keeping things professional with a HOT man like Josh around was going to be really hard. At times you could chop the tension between these two with a is book had a sizzle factor that didn't disappoint but it also had a sweet and romantic side that I adored. When Cara required Josh, he was always there, but he wasn't excellent and I loved that about him. He created mistakes along the method which created him seem more human. Sometimes characters are written to be so excellent you can't connect because they are almost too excellent and unrealistic. Everything about this book feels so real... Kirsten writes it so well you feel like your watching a film play out in your mind while you read, and you wish to be the leading role. In this case I wouldn't have minded one min to walk in Cara's shoes... Josh is so worth it!What I always love about Kristen's series is as much as your in the moment with the main characters in the current book, she makes you care just as much about the secondary characters. I fell completely in love with Josh's brother. That's been event to me a lot lately in books, but I found myself really wanting to know this man so much deeper. I'm tearing up just thinking about one of the moments that played out in this book, which happened to be the moment that created me wish to beg for his story next...If your looking for a book filled with happiness and tender moments, as well as a few heartbreaking tears, this is the book for you. Kristen always pulls out just about every emotion we have as humans and finds a method to weave a tale that you can't place down and never wish to end... Loving Cara gets my 5 star seal of approval and this fresh Love Under the Huge Sky series has quickly become one of my favorites! I can't wait for the next one...

    Allow me begin by saying that the book is not bad, but it is nothing unique either. It was a page turner and the story line had amazing qualities, but the grand twist or the fancy turn were missing, obviously.What it felt very off to me were the hollow development and the insta-love between the characters. They hit it off and everything was rushed and smooth -in the wrong way. Neither foreplay, nor banter for a e character -Josh- was too amazing to be real and cheesy macho -most of the times. The heroine, on the other hand -Cara- was, unreasonably insecure.Overall, if you are looking for a light and cheesy book, but, without some angst or well developed plot that's your book, otherwise it is a mediocre r all those reasons I found the the book quite overcharged.

    MY HEART IS FULL OF LOVE!Ms. Proby is a gifted storyteller. The With Me in Seattle Series is in my top ten list, and I absolutely love the Montgomery family. So … I was anxious for her fresh series. And, I’m sure you can tell … I’m stalling. Here’s the problem. I am not a fan of insta-love! I like insta-connection, but not insta-love. And that is my beef with Cara and Josh’s story. It felt like one day they saw each other again, reconnected after high school, and then the next day they were madly in love. Perhaps more story of their past friendship would have helped. I completely loved Cara’s relationship with Sean, and found that very believable. Also, once they were together I found Josh and Cara’s relationship endearing. Cara’s friendship with Jilly, who is miles away is exactly what best mates should be about, and I’m sort of disappointed that Jilly isn’t getting the next story! Ms. Proby writes perfect family dramas, and I want this story had more of that aspect. I would have liked more background to Josh and Zack’s relationship, and what led Zack away from the ranch. I want the twin’s parents were developed more as well. Sean is also an interesting character, and we obtain just a sliver of him. I wish the entire background story! What happened to him? Kristin still delivers a dialogue-driven story filled with hot, hot, hot romance. She is such a gifted storyteller, I am certain this installment is falling a bit flat probably due to the fact that a publisher/editor is now involved. I can hear it now … chop this … chop that! Overall the entire story felt undone and rushed. Hey Mr. Publisher/Editor – leave Proby alone!! She’s a damn fine writer with a amazing following! I can’t wait for the next installment in the With Me series (which Proby self-publishes). I bet this one will be cooked to perfection!

    This is one of my favorite authors. I have loved everything I’ve by her so is one as sh and Cara have known each other most of their lives, having grown up together in their little Montana sh was the popular, confident one in high school (along with his twin brother). Cara was the awkward, shy all grown up, Josh finally takes message of the more confident adult Cara when she shows up on his family ranch to tutor his nephew. Sparks fly, instantly they both are very aware of each other. Cara tries, in vain to hold their encounters strictly professional, it doesn’t take long for that to fly out the window. These two are too hot to handle.I loved these characters and this quaint little town. It was well written. Very sweet, no large drama, or angst, no ’s told in dual points of view. And has a satisfied ending.

    I bought this book because it had had a pre-order of $1.99 and it was actually beautiful amazing! I've liked Kristen Proby ever since the With Me in Seattle series, but I had lost interest after the latest one was published (Safe With Me) as I somehow really didn't like it. This book blew me away with how much I ended up liking it.Loving Cara was a pleasant surprise and a fun read. Despite the cliche romance cover (I hate book covers like these because I'm always embarrassed to admit to my other GR's mates who read literature that I read "trashy" novels), I highly recommend this book to romance readers!

    This has got to be one of the sweetest books I have ever read. The love story was absolutely attractive and the sexy times were scorching hot! I was SO surprised to learn that this is the same author who wrote the With Me In Seattle books, which I was not a huge fan of. I can really see that Kristen Proby has really come into her own and honed her craft very nicely with this book!Loving Cara follows Carolina "Cara" Donovan and Joshua King as they care for Josh's nephew Seth who was abandoned by his deranged and toxic mother. Cara is a teacher and is hired to tutor Seth, a twelve year old boy, who, because he was raised by such a horrible person, is troubled, rebellious, often lashing out, and very difficult to work with. Cara, though, through her love and patience, is able to support Seth small by small come out of his sh works on the Lazy K ranch with his family and is hard-working, kind, intelligent, deliciously handsome, funny, and just an all-around amazing guy. He notices Cara when she comes to teach Seth and is amazed at how much she has grown up since their days in high school.What I loved so much about this romance was that it was SO realistic. The dialogue was authentic and so simple to follow. I really enjoyed the pace of this book, as well. So a lot of times three or four hundred page books move like molasses. But [email protected]#$%! the ground running from the get-go. I absolutely loved every min of this beautiful, honest, breathtaking, addicting, consuming book.I was also extremely happy that this book wasn't drowning in angst. Nothing kills a amazing book for me like too much angst. There was a plethora of awesome tension and amazing development of the characters but nothing that was silly or asinine.I thought it was so great, too, how Zack, Josh's twin brother, reconnects with his son Seth. It seemed very natural to me, realistic, the interaction between them and the other characters. Seth's transformation throughout the book was really unbelievable to so, someone had mentioned that they were upset that a package of wolves had to be killed in Loving Cara. But, really, this kind of thing happens all the time. Doesn't create it amazing or something to be celebrated... it's just a fact. When it comes down to the decision of losing your entire livelihood because wolves are killing all your livestock or killing said wolves, I think everyone knows what the wise decision is. I'm animal lover, myself, and I hate animal cruelty of any kind but it was a important evil, unfortunately.If you're looking for something to lose yourself in completely, pick this up and give it a try! Kristen Proby has really grown leaps and bounds. It was an absolute pleasure to read this book!

    Under the Empyrean Sky (The Heartland Trilogy Book 1) []  2020-2-4 14:44

    Cael lives in the Heartland, the vast stretch of country that once was home to a lot of farms, family owned and growing everything that could be farmed. Now, it is all owned by the Empyrean, and the only crop that is grown is genetically engineered corn, which is used to create the corn syrup that provides the wealth to hold the Empyrean flotillas floating high above the common people. Cael and his squad of scavengers are out on their ship, looking for old machinery and parts to when they explore a secret garden of illegal vegetables. Cael sees the bounty as his method out of the dismal existence the Empyrean forces the Heartlanders to endure. Instead, he finds a rebellion, a fresh connection to family, and the possibility to create a difference.I read recently that Wendig considers himself a horror writer. I don't know if I would say that for all his work, although some definitely has a creepy aspect. This dystopian tale perhaps walks a line that comes close to horror, with its not-quite-sentient-but-certainly-aware engineered corn, and the Blight, a disease that turns people into almost plants. It's quite an interesting concept, and touches on a lot of of today's controversial problems in both climate and meal production. And it paints a somewhat scary picture. But not one without hope. That sliver of light does exist to push Cael and his mates on, even when they don't realize e plot moves quickly once it gets going. It is a bit slow at the front end, but once the story is set-up, it gains momentum. Characters are well written, if not exceptional. The setting is the star here, at least for me. The Heartland is bleak and unfriendly. The people who are small more than forced labor for the Empyrean rulers are hard and tough. Most have a fatalistic attitude about everything. The Empyrean flotillas are like distant stars- too far to touch, a dream of wealth and power that most on the ground can never achieve. There is some mention of sex, but nothing explicit. The books are aimed at older teenagers, so that is not unexpected. There is also a fair bit of cursing, but, again, teenagers do curse, and, if you have read any of Wendig's other books, the language should not be a l in all, this was a amazing read and sets up the next book nicely.

    Under the Empyrean Sky (The Heartland Trilogy Book 1) []  2020-2-4 14:44

    This is not a subtle dystopia. The basic problem is that the Earth's surface is now a monoculture of highly-engineered (and toxic) corn. The representative of the orbital-dwelling oppressors is named at said, YA doesn't need to be subtle. It's very clear how and where Wendig has taken the future events, and it is, as it should be, a story about the characters. Wendig gets a lot of grief about the teen leads who cuss fluently, have sex, smoke and drink illicitly, etc. Do the grief-givers *remember* being teens? And rural teens, at that? The teens-who-acted-like-it are what sold this book for me, with a prose style well pitched to both the audience and the tone of the story.

    Under the Empyrean Sky (The Heartland Trilogy Book 1) []  2020-2-4 14:44

    I am a huge fan of Wendig's, and was looking forward to this read because I thought the concept--dystopian society derived from over-dependence on corn cultivation--sounded fascinating and original. The book totally delivered on that. Wendig skillfully and imaginatively builds upon some of the unsettling elements in the current meal industry and public health sectors, like GMO's and the insidious pervasiveness of high fructose corn syrup and other heavily processed foods that are poisoning us. The world-building is excellent, in terms of the story setup and the framework of the society. The setting is particularly outstanding--it's rendered with lavish sensory info that convey the menace of the corn, the desolation of the landscape, and the bleakness of the Heartlanders' existence.Wendig's books are reliably satisfying in terms of plot and tension and conflict, and all of those elements are here in spades. But the one zone where the book fell a small flat for me was the protagonist, Cael. I couldn't STAND him. The worth of a main character's "likability" is a topic of considerable debate in the writing community, and obviously opinions vary widely, but for me personally, I generally prefer to feel a sense of affection for the leader of a story I'm reading. I wish to root for them as they struggle to overcome their challenges. But throughout this book, I kept hoping one of Cael's far more interesting and sympathetic sidekicks would knock him out and take over.I obtain that he's a 17-year-old boy, and that teenage boys are often complete jerks. Cael is rash and hot-headed and stubborn, and he thinks he knows better than everyone around him, which, again, I know is beautiful typical for a child his age. The contempt he heaps on his aged and fragile father is a small hard to read, but ultimately we know (and his father knows) that it's driven by his rage over the lot life has dealt him, and over the futility that everyone around him assigns to the notion of trying to war back. He disdainfully refers to the task of mending his boat's sail as "women's work." He deceives and manipulates people, and threatens those whom he doesn't understand. But where he really lost me was his response to his girlfriend Gwennie's acceptance of her government-mandated marriage obligation to another guy. I would accept and understand him being damage and bitter and angry, but he goes beyond that when he shames her and calls her a wh*re. Not just once, but repeatedly. It's unjust and mean-spirited and ugly, and it created my sympathy for him evaporate. It created me wish him to fail. It created me wish her to stick with the other guy, who treats her with more kindness. Cael tells his father that he loves Gwennie, but there's no nuance to it, and no respect evident in his emotions for her; instead he just comes off as a toddler who's angry that somebody else has stolen his favorite toy.I am not sure if all of this is setup for hero growth that extends over the rest of the series; perhaps the second book will feature Cael getting heavily schooled by everyone around him in the art of not being a total ***hole. But if his personality remains unchanged, I'm not sure that the fascinating globe in put here will be enough to compel me to spend another few hours with a hero I'd be satisfied to see tossed into one of the Heartlanders' corn-threshing machines.

    Under the Same Sky (Kaitlyn and the Highlander Book 7) []  2020-1-6 18:54

    The romance in this book is very much real. So a lot of moments of either Kaitlyn or Magnus declaring their love to each other in both their words and actions. A few things were cleared up in this book but there are some missing pieces that need to be taken care of if Kaitlyn and Magnus will ever have a safe put to call home in the same year.

    I started this series to fill time during Droughtlander. This is no longer a time filler, I can’t wait to see where Magnus and Kaitlyn go next. I also love the authors interaction with her readers through Facebook. Thanks for sharing your hero and ideas with us.

    Under the Empyrean Sky (The Heartland Trilogy Book 1) []  2020-2-4 14:44

    I picked up this book on Kindle purely because of a blog post by the author completely owning the fact that he had written about a hero who was without homosexuality being used as a plot device or some sort of moral lesson. As someone who strives for the same diversity in her own writing, I knew I had to obtain the book based on that blog post alone.I've read other works by Wendig, and his distinct narrative voice is always a joy to experience. While I didn't quite like the main hero of this book, I was still sucked into Cael's life and experiences and wanted to root for him versus all the adversity he e world-building in this novel was amazing, with definite ties to current political and environmental dystopic possibilities. However, there was so much of the globe that we didn't see that also intrigued me. In the end, I almost felt like I read the book from the wrong perspective. I was frustrated with Cael's shortsightedness at times, and wanted to instead read about his sister's adventure as she escapes farther out into the world. I hope more of what I felt like I missed is covered in the rest of the stly, this book created me wish to eat a salad.

    Under the Empyrean Sky (The Heartland Trilogy Book 1) []  2020-2-4 14:44

    For this older adult and aspiring novelist, YA is a guilty pleasure. I liked reading this book a whole lot, and immediately plunked for the next one. I've been enjoying Chuck's blog for a while now, but this is my first read of his writing, and I liked it a lot. I'm not a fantasy/sci fi writer, but I have fun the genre primarily for the creative world-building, and this one is perfect on that score, with lots of interesting ideas that facilitate social commentary, with vivid language to obtain it across. The characters are amazing but not great--what brought it down to 4 stars for me--but they work in the context of the story, and may deepen in books two and three. I think the items about swearing and violence is nonsensical, given the content of TV, movies and video android games that children are exposed to. It's a fast read, very entertaining, with a well-thought out social commentary side that makes it more than just a twinkie. I'm looking forward to the next one, which is now on my phone.

    I have loved this series from the beginning. This installment did not disappoint. Kaitlyn, Magnus, and the gang are once again embroiled in a war to overcome devious deeds, spread out across centuries.WARNING: These books are hard to place down and will likely create you lose sleep, as you will not wish to stop reading.

    Fun read! Kaitlyn is hard to warm up to because she is so self centered but Magnus is a real gentleman and hero. You'll have fun the read, it moves fast.

    Under the Arms of the Sky: A Sailing Adventure []  2020-1-22 21:56

    I was lucky enough to join Kate and Hugh during one week of their wonderful adventure, and so was thrilled to learn that Kate had written about it. That week is one that ever since I've kept coming back to in my mind. I had always thought of "boating" as something elderly retirees would do around the harbor. So to explore an entire community, of young and old (and even young families) that had thrown off their shackles of daily life, moved into a boat and taken off to truly see the globe as it is was a slice of life that I'd never imagined before.Kate's story is at once private yet compellingly readable, and captures perfectly the thrill and sense of discovery that comes from taking a brave leap into the unknown. It also dives into a side of south east asia that few have seen, much less written about, In the same method that "Into the Wild" will create you seriously consider hitchhiking, "Under the Arms of the Sky" may just have you trekking to the nearest Marina with all your savings to a boat. Recommended.

    This book is a must-read for anyone whose family, like mine, decides to take a year or two out and go sailing! You might have been wondering what possessed them; read this and you will know!Under the Arms of the Sky takes you on a journey around South-East Asia from the sea, along the coasts of Australia, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, the Philippines and some of the further-flung parts of Micronesia. The characters are authentic; simply sketched but completely engaging. And you can almost smell the rain, the spices, and the frying fish in little island e true strength of the book, however, is the disarming method it invites you into the inner experiences of a couple taking on some enormous challenges and growing stronger as a result. Understated but central, this psychological journey is what keeps you turning the cready has a clear, unpretentious and accessible style which makes the book a pleasure to read. Her honesty about the challenges of life on the begin ocean (especially for someone with intense motion sickness) is especially engaging. It may create you think twice about your own plans to embrace the life adventurous - it won't diminish your admiration for those who do!

    Under the Empyrean Sky (The Heartland Trilogy Book 1) []  2020-2-4 14:44

    I picked this one up because, after all these years of enjoying Chuck's online rants, I thought I should give his fiction a try. I've bought several of his books, but read none--that TBR pile is REALLY high. The latest one I tried was Dinopocalypse Now! and was just too zany for me (too a lot of ingredients in that soup).This one, I really liked. Set in the Heartland, an analog midwest, where the farming folk now work for the Empyrean, a group of hoity toity rich folk distant from the ordinary folk in the same as as the Capitol from the Hunger Android games and hundreds of other young adult dystopian visions. What keeps that from making me roll my eyes though, is Wendig's visceral descriptions and hero dynamics, especially for the main character, Cael. Seriously, that line describing someone's eye being destroyed? (shudder) Wonderfully so in the tradition of dystopian young adult, we have a contrivance which means that young people have to marry the person selected for them instead of their heart's choice. Those artificial structures are one of my pet peeves with the entire genre, but once again props to Wendig for getting me past that by centering me fully in the emotions of the moment for Cael and his love, Gwennie. The relationships were complex, as true ones are, full of jealousies and sense of duty and attempts to do what is expected intermixed with dreams of getting l in all, quite a amazing story, and I will probably be back for more in the series.

    "Them goddamn Okies got no sense and no feeling. They ain't human. A human being wouldn't live like they do. A human being couldn't stand it to be so dirty and miserable. They ain't a hell of a lot better than gorillas." The Grapes of Wrath, John SteinbeckUNDER THE EMPYREAN SKY is a sci-fi Dust Bowl story without the dust. Chuck Wendig's ver of a futuristic Oklahoma isn't ravaged by drought or wind or Fresh Deal farm policies, but by an aggressive, corrupting strain of corn called "Hiram's Golden Prolific" that has supplanted every other growing thing except people and rats, and the people aren't doing so well.Unlike Steinbeck's Okies, the Heartlanders of Wendig's tale don't have a California they can package up and go to. The only escape is to the flotilla of zone stations overhead, which can only be reached by a rigged "Lottery" - or, as is implied, through other, less savory means.UNDER THE EMPYREAN SKY goes to amazing lengths to highlight both the scrappy-underdog nature of his main characters, and to create the mysterious residents of the zone flotilla as unsympathetic as possible. (They've banned baseball, the scoundrels have.) The storytelling hits you over the head maybe once too often--and that's not a metaphor; almost all the plot twists seem to involve a heavy cranial injury to the protagonist's skull.Having said that, Wendig's lean and unsparing prose is perfectly suited to the material. His creative vision is marked with the sensibility of someone who has been poor, who has had to save junky old parts for jury-rigged repairs, who has had to worry about where their next food is coming from. The Heartland always feels like a true place, although one on the verge of social collapse. A lot of of Wendig's characters seem like stock characters, but he writes about them with furious fellow-feeling, miles away from the detachment of the Empyreans, who see them as Steinbeck's working-class Americans see their Okie neighbors.UNDER THE EMPYREAN SKY was, the author tells us, written as something of a joke--having corn as the leading factor in an apocalypse, instead of fire, ice, or marauding eighty-foot clones of the Michelin Man. It is a bit heavy-handed in its politics, and more than a bit unsubtle in its plot and characterization, but it's entertaining, imaginative stuff.

    I have enjoyed all the books in this series. Time travel is one of my favorite topics and I love it in this story. I wanted to read slowly and savor the book, but I couldn't stop reading! So now I am waiting on the next one and hope it won't be too long of a wait!

    Under the Empyrean Sky (The Heartland Trilogy Book 1) []  2020-2-4 14:44

    Cael and his squad are scavengers in a globe being devoured by corn. The Heartlanders live under the heel of the Empyrean, who go about their lives in skyborn flotillas. They're cast into poverty and deprivation with little reminders of high technology and plenty all around them. Cael's squad have to contend with their rivals, led by the mayor's privileged and unscrupulous a whole, I enjoyed this book. However, it has a couple of major flaws which I found rst, the female characters. The three most prominent female characters were very flat. Gwennie, who is a member of Cael's crew, is mostly reduced to an object for Cael and his rival to war over. During the short time that she becomes a point of view character, she's totally ineffectual. The other young woman, Cael's betrothed, is even less fleshed out. Finally, the Proctor from the Empyrean comes across as a caricature of a villain. This was particularly disappointing from Wendig, who has already shown that he can write perfect female characters and e other issue is a lack of resolution. I knew going in that this book would be the first of a series. However, Wendig and his editor pushed that a bit too far. The only overarching plot of this book (as opposed to this book-in-the-series) was "make some for the family," and it's never really resolved. The effect is a book that feels like it just stops rather than coming to a at said, the larger story seems very interesting, and I fully intend to see where he goes in the second book.

    I love this time travel series and the Characters Kaitlyn and Magnus who are both very strong, yet compassionate. I was disappointed though at how abrupt the book came to an end. It left to much unsaid and undone at the same time. If there is another book I won't come quick enough and i will be forced to re-read latest chapter of latest book again to refresh my memory.
