BooK Review - Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi

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 Review  

What a great futuristic story.  This is a post apolcaliptic story of people who live in domes who communicate with each other via 'realms' on something like an internet that is connected to your body via a eye piece.   This is definately a very interesting idea, with the thought that you could be sitting in your little dome room on the one hand but on the other you could be having drinks at a party in a medieval realm or something like that.  But as we know with a lot of futuristic stories, things are not always what they seem.  Who are the baddies and who are the heros?

Aria is the main character that we follow in this story.   Her mother works in medicine in another part of the dome.  One day she loses contact with her mother and desperate to find out what happens decides to take matters into her own hands.  Things get very out of control and Aria finds herself out of her depth and fighting for survival.  

This is such a great story with a great romance tucked in there as well.  I did have to chuckle at a few comments as well between some of the characters especially the moment where Aria finds out that she is having her first period and she is comparing it to death, thinking that she is dying.  Being a woman, I can completely relate to that lol!!!
