Under the Never Sky - Veronica Rossi I really enjoyed this book. It surprised me. Not that I was expecting something bad, I just didn’t expect to like it as much as I did. I could picture the world post Unity, the Aether storms, pod life and the Death Shop.I normally get irritated with female leads so I was glad that Rossi made Aria strong. She could have been very whiny and annoying considering her situation but she wasn't. Phew! I also like how it wasn't an instalove situation - another annoying trait that this book could have followed.“Oh, this was champ. She’d found herself a Savage prince. Don’t laugh, she told herself. Don’t laugh, Aria.”Oh, and another bonus is not one, but two, strong and attractive male leads. Double the pleasure, double the fun. Perry. Well, I’m not sure how I’d feel about someone smelling my feelings but I suppose if it were him, I’d let it slide.His green eyes. The bend in his nose and the scars on his cheek. All the tiny inperfections that made him beautiful.Roar was such a good friend and had the open-mindedness to guide the Dweller and the Savage into neutral territory without making a dreaded love triangle."Seers are good at looking, and good-looking, but before you start wondering, no, I'm not a Seer. Just lucky."Maybe it is just me, but I have a feeling it’s not, but I’m glad that Rossi let the characters have a romantic sexual relationship. They are of age and falling in love. I think it is more natural to allow this than to withhold it simply because this is a YA read.There are other things I'd rather do when I'm alone with you." Time to step off the edge. "Then do them.”Man, with that ending, I'm glad book 2 is out.
