Under the Ever Night read-along: Under the Never Sky
Make sure you visit our hostesses to link up and get the questions for the next part of the read-along!
Under the Never Sky
1. What do you think of Aria’s adjustment to living outside the Realms?
Honestly, considering how sheltered her life is in the Pod, I'm impressed that she does as well as she does when she first gets dumped. It's eye opening for her to see that stepping outside the Pod doesn't immediately kill her. I loved that part of her growth -- the moment where she realized that she's strong enough to survive and thrive in this hostile environment.
2. These two worlds are so different from each other, which would you want to be in?
While the idea of a world where anything is possible at the drop of a hat is tempting, it's not real. I'd take all the trials and struggle of Perry's world over the cold sterility of the Realms. Well... I say that now. I imagine that I'd be singing a different tune after a season where food is scarce and the storms are ever-present. STILL... I think I'll stand by my decision to live on the outside.
3. If you had a Smart-Eye, what would you do? Where would you go?
I wish I had something brilliant to say here but I'd probably hang out in a giant library. Or Bilbo's house in the Shire. Because that shit is AWESOME! NO! WAIT! I'd totally live with Rehvenge in his swank penthouse. We'd hang out all day and talk. Yep. Talk. That's alllllll we'd be doing.
4. Who was your favorite character and why?
I loved Aria's growth and Perry's strength throughout the book yet Roar was SUCH a standout character for me. The three of them together are fairy dust and rainbow unicorn farts! AWESOME WITH A SIDE OF AWESOME!
5. Make a few predictions about what you think will happen in Through the Ever Night.
I've read Through the Ever Night at this point and don't want to spoil anyone, so I'm going to make some INSANE predictions that are totally not true... Aria becomes the Amazon queen and is forced to hunt down Perry and take him as her mate. Perry, as the new Blood Lord of the Tides, can't leave his people, so he and Queen Aria move the tribe onto the Amazon lands and settle them in before finding a secluded grotto and making sweet, sweet love by the light of the Aether storms. Meanwhile, Roar continues to be awesome and develops superpowers that let him find Liv. The two of them become honorary Amazons and help defend the tribe against any marauders that threaten their peace!
