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.
I had to reread the whole series before I could think of touching this. And I’m happy I did because I would have been stuck otherwise. Sometimes my memory fails me. Grrr!
Perry and Aria have saved the dwellers from Reverie before it completely gets destroyed by the Aether, and they’re save in the new cave Perry and Marron set up with the Tides. But not everyone is settling in well and there’s an obvious rift between the two groups.
Cinder had been taken in book 2, and now it’s up to Roar, Perry and Aria to go save him, but Roar and Perry aren’t getting along so well after Liv was killed and they have a lot of tension to work through. They have to go to Sable and Hess who have teamed up, ready to fly out, to seek the Still Blue.
Roar is angry, and this puts them all in danger, especially when they go to rescue Cinder only for Roar to get them further into trouble and they all end up captured.
I loved the romance and fact Perry and Aria refused to let anything tear them apart, even when they argued, they sorted it out. There was a really sweet moment in a cove (spoiler removed :P) and the ending is just perfect. But Sable finally finds his way to the Still Blue, by using Cinder to control the Aether, and terrible consequences happen.
He has taken control of the Tides.
I REALLY DON’T KNOW HOW TO GO ON WITHOUT SCREAMING.
I loved loved loved this book, and probably more so than 1 and 2 but hey that’s often the way for me. I can’t believe it’s over. I recommend Under The Never Sky series a thousand times ++++
