Genre: Young Adult
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.
My Review: Aria is banished from her home after some events that occured. She is thrown from the aircraft and into a world she hasn't a clue about. She must now learn to live, or risk death. So she tries to do her best to live. Along the way she meets Perry, who is a savage. Perry doesn't find her kind good, so he isn't afraid to hurt her feelings. Soon they basically find that they need each other, because what they want is pretty much the same thing. So this book is told in two different ways. Aria's way and Perry's way. Now if I had to pick, I'd say Aria's views are my favorite. For some reason her views got me more interested into the story, where Perry's version had my attention some chapters, while he lost my interest in others. I do like that it was written this way, because without it, we wouldn't be able to get into Perry's head the way that we did. Now Aria is cool. She is smart and tries getting the truth about everything. She is and Perry don't have a thing for eachother, and she knows that Perry is pretty much just using her until he gets what he wants. However just like in any good story with awesome characters, they fall in love eventually. It's a good relationship. It wasn't like some other storys where it's rushed, and that they already know everything about each other. It's like a true relationship that took its time, and learned things about each other the way it should be. So it's safe to say that they are one of my favorite couples. Now on the overall book it was just amazing! It's one of those books, that you have to drop everything and get it.
