UNDER THE NEVER SKY, by Veronica Rossi
Expected publication: February 7th 2012, by ATOM.
Synopsis: Exiled from her comfortable home in the enclosed city of Reverie, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland—known as The Death Shop—are slim. In Reverie, she spent time with her friends roaming virtual environments called Realms. But in The Death Shop, even the very air she breathes can kill her. Then Aria meets an Outsider named Perry. He’s wild—a savage. He’s also her only hope for survival.
A hunter for his tribe in a merciless landscape, Perry sees Aria as sheltered and fragile—everything he would expect from a Dweller. But he also needs Aria’s help; she alone holds the key to his redemption. Opposites in nearly every way, they come together reluctantly, and embark on a journey challenged as much by their prejudices as by cannibals and wolves. Their unlikely alliance will forever change the fate of all who live UNDER THE NEVER SKY.
The first book in a captivating trilogy, Veronica Rossi’s enthralling debut sweeps you into an unforgettable adventure
It was the cover that first caught my attention when I was looking through the "2012 Debut Authors (Young Adult & Middle Grade)" list on Goodreads. I love the font used for the title, the title itself and the blue colouring. Blue colouring is definitely one of my favourites for book covers. Of course once I managed to tear my eyes away from the pretty awesome cover I was hooked by the synopsis, too.
