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 energy storms will. 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 come together to survive. Their unlikely alliance forges a bond that will determine the fate of all who live under the never sky.
If there was no fear, how could there be comfort? Or courage?

I didn't expect a lot from this book. I bought it with condition where I just knew there is a boy who uses bow and arrows XD But I did enjoy this book, and I love it!
The story was parted in 2 points of view. We have Aria and Perry as the main characters. It was my new experience to read this way, and I found it very fascinating. Sometimes it made me engaging to know in both's thoughts, though I was a little bit more appealing with Perry's POV because I didn't really get into futuristic things of the book. And beside, Perry is hot, guys, I can't resist XD
The world building was very steady and interesting, but it didn't mesmerize me pretty much. I was confused with many futuristic terms at first. But I really like with what happen in the Outside, and I'm glad that most of the story was set in Outside.
I love the romance here. Perry and Aria's relationship grew steadily and it's sooo cute. Or at least it's cute for me. I always love the romance where they take some process to spark the love, and it worked very well in Peria \(´▽`)/
There is also a loveable character, Roar! Believe me, you'll like him XD
The other aspect that I love is the ability of Senses. There are 3 kind of senses for outsiders, those are Seer (sense of sight), Aud (sense of hearing), and Scire (sense to smell temper). Those things gives more attractive aspect to the whole story. Perry is Seer and Scire, and our Roar is an Aud, such a good teammate XD
If you're looking for fast-paced book, with actions and fantastic romance, you should pick Under The Never Sky up! Once you get into the story, you won't put it down because many thrilling events came excitingly!
I went staight to the sequel Through The Ever Night, and the review will come up soon too :)
