Book Summary:

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.

I’m ready for the sequel now!  I really got into this book and enjoyed it.  Part science fiction, part romance, part adventures… I stayed up way too late because I was engrossed in the story and didn’t want to put it down.

I don’t really have a whole lot more to say other than there are certain stories that I just enjoy reading and this was one of them.  Content wise it was fairly clean. I can’t remember any language but it does have a short subtly implied sex scene.  If it weren’t for that I would recommend this book to everyone.

Rating: 4 Stars – Great Book

Content: Fairly clean. No language but there is sex (although it is more subtle & implied than graphically described).  A little too old for my 12 year old so I didn’t pass it on to her (yet).
