Worlds kept them apart.
Destiny brought them together.
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.
Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi is the first book of her three book (so far) Under the Never Sky series. It's dystopian setting is two worlds, one in secluded domes where everyone lives through virtual realms and they can do just about anything that can be imagined, the second world is outside exposed to the elements including violent storms.
The story is told alternately through Aria and Perry. They come from different worlds, but slowly build a trusting relationship. They realize they each have the same goal of finding loved ones and need each other to make that happen. I appreciated the fact that it wasn't love at first sight, they had to work together and learn about each other for the caring to develop.
If you're a sci-fi geek, don't expect the technology and realms of Reverie to be explained in depth. It's not, but really isn't needed to fill out the storyline.
Rossi has built a great dystopian world in Under the Never Sky. The characters are believable and the plot is intriguing and paced well. I'm looking forward to reading the whole series!
