Book Review: Into the Still Blue, by Veronica Rossi @rossibooks

Into the Still Blue is a wonderfully satisfying ending to a great trilogy.

*Spoilers for the first two books are inevitable, so you may want to skip to the last paragraph, if you haven't read the first two books.*

This series has always been about getting to the Still Blue. The Aether storms are getting worse, and time is running out. But, the bad guys hold all the keys to getting there. They have kidnapped Cinder, and they know the coordinates to get to the Still Blue.

Perry, Aria, Roar, and some others design a plan to get to Sable and Hess (the bad guys who have Cinder) so they can get the knowledge and equipment to find the Still Blue and also rescue their friend, Cinder, who is the only one who can control the Aether.

The Dwellers and Outsiders are living in a cave, but they continue to be segregated because they can't get along. They are running out of food and fuel. Roar, as well as Perry are both grieving Liv, and aren't getting along either.

Nothing is easy. Things don't go as planned, of course. But let me just say, I'm really MAD at Roar for screwing things up so badly. I know, the book probably would have ended at about 25%, but still. How stupid.

 I like that Perry and Aria's love never falters. Even when things are difficult and they may disagree, they don't abandon each other. We get a satisfying conclusion, as well as some real character growth.

All in all, I'm in LOVE with this series and will recommend it to everyone. It's unique, exciting, and has some characters that you can't help but love. If you haven't read Under the Never Sky yet, you need to start there. Then continue with Through the Ever Night before you pick up Into the Still Blue.

  1. Lol, I will prepare for Roar's mess up and forgive since he's grieving and also because he's one of my book boyfriends. ;) I'm relieved to hear that you think is a good ending, that is always nice to know!

  2. Roar is one of my favorite characters and my heart broke for him in book 2. I really enjoy this series and sad to see it end but glad it was satisfying.

  4. Oh, and I see you are listening to State of Wonder. I listened to it, too. Isn't it something? A great discussion book.

  5. I too absolutely loved this series. I'm going to miss them all so bad. But yes, the ending was satisfying. So glad for that.
