UNDER THE NEVER SKY
(Book one of the Under the Never Sky Series)
ALA Best Fiction for Young Adults selection and an Indie Next List Pick
Fighting to survive in a ravaged world, a Dweller and a Savage form an unlikely alliance in New York Times bestselling author Veronica Rossi’s “unforgettable dystopian masterpiece” (Examiner.com).
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. 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.
In alternating chapters told in Aria’s and Perry’s voices, Under the Never Sky subtly and powerfully captures the evolving relationship between these characters and sweeps readers away to a harsh but often beautiful world. Continuing with Through the Ever Night and concluding with Into the Still Blue, the Under the Never Sky trilogy has already been embraced by readers in twenty-six countries and been optioned for film by Warner Bros.

“Rossi nails the feat of offering dual perspectives. Rossi grounds her worldbuilding in language, creating idioms for the Dwellers and Outsiders that add texture to their respective myths; her characters are brave and complex and her prose smooth and evocative. Inspired, offbeat and mesmerizing.” – Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Rossi’s novel transcends. There’s a luminescence to her world that denies the grim realities of environmental degradation, domed cities, genetic disease, and roaming bands of cannibals. It comes across as the work of a master craftsman.” – School Library Journal (starred review)
“Refreshing. Exhilarating. Rossi unravels the world’s secrets, perils, and wonders with a sure hand.” – Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
“Will capture your imagination and your heart.” – Justine Magazine
