Review: Roar and Liv by Veronica Rossi

Roar and Liv (Under the Never Sky #0.5) by Veronica Rossi
Synopsis (Goodreads):
Before Perry and Aria, there was Roar and Liv.

After a childhood spent wandering the borderlands, Roar finally feels like he has a home with the Tides. His best friend Perry is like a brother to him, and Perry's sister, Liv, is the love of his life. But Perry and Liv's unpredictable older brother, Vale, is the Blood Lord of the Tides, and he has never looked kindly on Roar and Liv's union. Normally, Roar couldn't care less about Vale's opinion. But with food running low and conditions worsening every day, Vale's leadership is more vital—and more brutal—than ever. Desperate to protect his tribe, Vale makes a decision that will shatter the life Roar knew and change the fate of the Tides forever.
My Thoughts: I expected to like this novella because I really liked book 1 in the series. I didn't expect to be blown away by it. It's haunting and tragic and it made me *feel* all these things for Roar that I didn't think I would. His heartache over losing Liv to her brother's greed slayed me. Watching as the relationship between he and Perry became strained, hurt. Roar is... I don't know. He's steadfast and loyal and he's willing to follow Liv and Perry to the ends of the earth. I liked the guy before, I *really* like the guy now.

Liv's predicament shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone who's read book 1. It's mentioned more than once and Roar flat out tells Perry what happens. I'm very intrigued to see how things turn out. Very intrigued. I want a happy ending, people. I *want* it.

I have to go read book 2 now. Like, right now.

  4. I don't know if it is possible to love ROAR even MORE. I kind of hate the novella trend, but you've made me want this one.
