Into the Still Blue by Veronica Rosi (Under the Never Sky book 3)
SPOILER ALERT! If you haven't read the first two books in the trilogy, Under the Never Sky and Through the Ever Night, Stop! I don't want to ruin one of my favorite series for you.
"The world needs them. They need each other."
Into the Still Blue begins immediately following the events in Brooke, an enovella. Aria has awoken to find that her arm is still there but she has suffered nerve damage from the gunshot she received in Reverie. Molly is catching her up on the events that have transpired while she was unconscious. (These took place in Brooke) Aria wants to see Perry immediately but Molly lets her know that he is outside. No one is allowed out of the cave right now because it isn't safe from the Aether storms. As Blood Lord of the Tides, Perry gets to break his own rules. Molly and Roar, who’s a little gruff toward Aria, take her to the portion of the cave where they are housing the forty two Dwellers she brought back from Reverie. They are sick like she had been when first leaving to pod and Perry ordered the thirty vaccinations on board the ship to be evenly divided. Looking for some of her friends, the first face she sees is Soren.
Perry and Gren are outside waiting to see who their visitors are and hoping its Roar and Twig along with a rescued Cinder. When the horses arrived, Roar lets Perry know that Sable and Hess have Cinder, who they believe is the key to the Still Blue. He wants to know what they are going to do about it. Tensions are high between Perry and Roar. The last time the two saw one another, Roar was with Aria and he jumped to the wrong conclusion. Perry also received word that his sister Liv was dead. Both are devastated by her loss. In the war room, the tension is thick between Perry and Roar. With Hess and Sable working together, they now have the three pieces needed to get to the Still Blue; the coordinates, the ships and Cinder, who is their way through the Aether barrier. With the Aether beginning to change color from blue to red, it may be only a matter of days before they are trapped in the cave for possibly years. Roar, Perry and Soren must learn to trust and work with one another in order to solve their problems and Aria is the common thread needed to hold the three together.
Can Cinder be rescued? Is he the key into getting into the Still Blue? Will Perry and Roar be able to repair their friendship? What happens when the Tides go to Sable and Hess' encampment to get what they need? Will Perry and Aria be able to find peace and lead what is left of the Tides' and Reverie into the Still Blue?
