Week 12 Reviews: Roar and Liv, Under the Never Sky

Before Perry and Aria, there was Roar and Liv.

After a childhood spent wandering the borderlands, Roar finally feels like he has a home with the Tides. His best friend Perry is like a brother to him, and Perry's sister, Liv, is the love of his life. But Perry and Liv's unpredictable older brother, Vale, is the Blood Lord of the Tides, and he has never looked kindly on Roar and Liv's union. Normally, Roar couldn't care less about Vale's opinion. But with food running low and conditions worsening every day, Vale's leadership is more vital—and more brutal—than ever. Desperate to protect his tribe, Vale makes a decision that will shatter the life Roar knew and change the fate of the Tides forever.

From Goodreads:
Since she'd been on the outside, she'd survived an Aether storm, she'd had a knife held to her throat, and she'd seen men murdered. This was worse.

Exiled from her home, the enclosed city of Reverie, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland - known as The Death Shop - are slim. If the cannibals don't get her, the violent, electrified energy storms will. She's been taught that the very air she breathes can kill her. Then Aria meets an Outsider named Perry. He's wild - a savage - and her only hope of staying alive.

A hunter for his tribe in a merciless landscape, Perry views Aria as sheltered and fragile - everything he would expect from a Dweller. But he needs Aria's help too; she alone holds the key to his redemption. Opposites in nearly every way, Aria and Perry must accept each other to survive. Their unlikely alliance forges a bond that will determine the fate of all who live under the never sky.

My first review of Roar and LivUnder the Never Sky

My Review:
Oh! Two great stories, in a great, great, great series! Reading about Roar, Liv, Perry, and Aria, and Cinder, and just wonderful characters in a pretty messed up world! They were just so great, and I loved spending more time with them!

The amazing-ness that is this series, it's hard to put into words. Yeah, you can split it into characters, world-building, the writing, but it's more then that. It's the epicness that the world is ending, and reading it, it's like you are Perry, and Aria, and you're doing your best to stop it. Or find a new, hopefully better world!

I loved that one of the mutations from being out in the Aether was a power with a sense. Though I wouldn't want to to have an advanced sense of smell like Perry and Liv! Maybe hearing like Roar and Aria, or maybe sight, because, my favourite things are books and music!!!

They have to separate, because they are from different worlds, but they will get back together, which I know since I've read book 2, and it's going to lead to good things, though his brother, yeah, that wasn't fun, but he wasn't a good leader or person anymore!

Such a great story, and I can't wait to reread more, and then the final book in the series!!!
