BJ Neary's insight:

a review of Under the Never Sky

a review of Under the Never Sky | Young Adult Novels | Scoop.it
When I saw Marissa Meyer's One Hundred Book Challenge, she had read all three of Veronica Rossi's books in the first quarter of the year, one right after the other. Now I know why!!! I finished the first book, Under the Never Sky, last night and jumped right into the 2nd book, Through the Ever Night.

Rossi has spun a mesmerizing world of Scires, Seers, life as a Savage and life as a Dweller wit...

Oh my, I am loving this first installment by Veronica Rossi and I plan to read all three of the Under The Never Sky books this winter break!
