Book 44/100: Through the Evernight by Veronica Rossi
Through the Ever Night - Veronica Rossi

I didn't go back and read my review of the first book in this series, but I'm pretty sure whatever I said there probably applies here, too. This is not an impressive dystopia -- it relies on  its love story because the world-building is only so-s0, but unfortunately the love story is only so-so as well. I just don't feel invested in Aria and Perry's relationship, so it was hard to really care when a bit of a love triangle (or love square? It was hard to tell whether there was supposed to be something romancy happening between two of the characters) that developed here, especially since it was more-or-less devoid of any real tension because the other love interest was not fully developed or compelling in any way, although she had the feeling of a character that was created by trying too hard to do something interesting.

There were some moments when Perry just seemed dumb, like in allowing his clanmates to tattoo Aria in a ceremony with the potential to be dangerous even though he knew a bunch of them hated her -- I could have seen the way that would turn out, so why couldn't he? He might be a little too naive to make a good clan leader. There were also parts of this audiobook I had to listen to more than once because I lost interest and then lost the thread of the story; there were other places where that happened and I decided it just wasn't worth it to go back and catch myself up.

This book wasn't horrible, hence the ubiquitous three-star rating, but you won't miss much if you skip it, either. I'm certainly not going to bother reading the final installment in the trilogy.

Through the Ever Night...
Through the Ever Night - Veronica Rossi

There's a lot going on in this series, enough to keep me entertained anyways but I'm just not particularly head over heels in love with it. I think mainly because, even though I like the alternate world it's set in, I can't say that I fully understand how the smart eye and the fractioning to the different realms could really work. Maybe if I could suspend my disbelief and ignore those pesky details then I might enjoy it more.

 

I'm also listening to the audio version of this series and I don't particularly care for either narrators. Now, Michael Goldstrom, the narrator of this second book is better then Bernadette Dunne Flagler, who narrates the first and third books of the series but neither one are great. Both of their voices are monotone and kind of boring with no real emotion behind their narration so that's not helping my experience either.

 

Rossi though, is very good with character development. I'm thoroughly invested now in all of the characters, especially Perry, Aria, Roar, Cinder and the Tides so I'm definitely going to continue with the final book. I wouldn't dare miss the outcome of their story for anything.

Reading progress update: I've read 65%.
Through the Ever Night - Veronica Rossi

I like this series and the world building but I don't quite understand how the "Realms" work. If you are in their domed community of "Reverie" in McDonald's for example and you have your "Smart Eye" on and go to a jungle in the "Realms" on a hunting expedition wouldn't you end up shooting the Fry Cook instead of a Tiger?? I don't get it -how does that work? or is this one of those things where I'm suppose to willingly suspend my disbelief because if so I just can't quite do it...

 

If I'm missing something or anyone knows how this works please enlighten me. Thank you! : )
