Aria has lived her whole life in the protected dome of Reverie. Her entire world confined to its spaces, she's never thought to dream of what lies beyond its doors. So when her mother goes missing, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland long enough to find her are slim.
Then Aria meets an outsider named Perry. He's searching for someone too. He's also wild - a savage - but might be her best hope at staying alive.
If they can survive, they are each other's best hope for finding answers.
On the story...
Under the Never Sky has a more science fiction feel to it. It successfully intertwines adventure, romance, and character growth. I enjoyed the adventure most, appreciated the character growth, and found the romance to be just okay. I started off finding Aria selfish and bit..not so smart. This is intentional and a product of her upbringing but was still a bit difficult to follow her actions. I was happy to see her change and grow. I liked Perry from the beginning. Aria and Perry's adventures were difficult, surprising, and entertaining.
On the narrator...
The story alternates between Perry and Aria's point of views. I enjoyed Ms. Flagler and believe she did a good job with both. I liked her voices for male characters best. Luckily there were mostly male characters in the book.
An entertaining sci-fi audio that can be enjoyed in print or audio form. The action and redeeming characters mad this an interesting read.
