Under the Never Sky takes the reader into a dystopian future where people are confined to Pods – giant domes where they are forced to live. Life is comfortable in the dome for Aria, until she is accused of a serious crime and exiled into the wastelands outside. Fearing the electric storms that strike the earth as well as the stories of cannibals and savages that she has heard, Aria must find her way to her mother in order to clear her name and live on the inside once more. On her journey of survival, Aria meets an Outsider named Perry. They don’t trust each other, but form an uneasy alliance in order to get what they both seek. Little do they know that the other will hold the key to their salvation and a love they had never imagined possible.

Rossi’s debut novel is a wonderful YA fantasy/sci-fi romance that is well written and has an imaginative story line. The reader is entranced by the strange future that is described and feels Aria’s struggles as their own. She is on a quest to find her place in the world; to find her inner strength; to find the truth. Intertwined in this introspective journey is a story of friendship, trust, and love. Dystopian futures are all the rage right now in the literary world, and Rossi’s novel adds new depth and imagination to the trend. Under the Never Sky is a new must read for any fan of fantasy or YA fiction.

Disclosure: I received my copy of this book free from Epic Reads. However, this had no impact on my opinion of the novel or my review.
