In A Nutshell:
It's hard to determine my best book of 2012 in January, but Under the Never Sky may very well be the one for me!
Aria has been falsely convicted--exiled and left to wander alone under the Aether Storms. Perry has been forced to leave--left to get his kidnapped nephew back. Their separate upbringings has led them to initially distrust each other--but their circumstances force them to work together. As their group grows, as they have to escape large groups who want to kill them, as they dodge dangerous Aether Storms--they learn that they may not be as different as they initially thought.
The artist in Veronica Rossi comes out in her striking and visually-compelling descriptions of the world she has created. The sights, the smells, and the sounds come together to draw the reader into the story--makes them feel like they are part of the group. I could not stop turning the pages as the characters (who I started to think of as my friends) covered treacherous terrain, dodged cannibalistic covens, tricked their way into guarded pods, learned the truth about themselves, their backgrounds, and their talents.
The only thing that killed me is when it ended--I wanted more. I cannot wait for the next book in the series to come out and tell me what happens next. This book ended in a cliff-hanger of all cliff-hangers! The next installment cannot come fast enough for me!
Since I think this may be my favorite book of 2012--I do not have a recommendation but a giveaway to share the wealth and the experience!
