“Four cows. Eight goats. Two dozen chickens. Ten sacks of grain. Five bags of dried herbs. They were just some of the things Liv’s marriage to a northern Blood Lord had brought the Tides. ‘I’m expensive,’ Liv joked the day she left, but neither Perry nor his best friend, Roar, had laughed.”
I was really surprised by Veronica Rossi’s Under the Never Sky, a book I’ve had for a long time but never picked it. And after finishing this one, I will definitely be reading the rest of the series.
From my review:
“Aria knows only the world inside the Realms, a virtual reality where life is lived without risk or consequence. When communication with her mother goes dark, Aria is determined to discover why. She manipulates a powerful man’s son in an effort to learn what he knows about her mother. Her plan goes awry when a fire is started and Aria is rescued by a savage from the outside. Despite her innocence Aria finds herself the scapegoat. Now banished from the only world she’s known, Aria must find a way to survive and her only hope may be the savage who saved her.
Perry has been in a power-struggle with his brother for years, but his love for his nephew Talon has kept him from doing anything about it. Frustrated, Perry breaks into the Dwellers’ compound, witnesses a horrific fire and despite his better judgment, rescues a girl from death. When his nephew is taken, Perry must decide if trusting her is worth the risk in order to save someone he loves.” You can find my full review here.
