Book Beginnings: April 14, 2017

It’s been another week and here we are back to Book Beginnings Friday. It’s be a busy week of work and chores. Not as much reading because of that, but still chugging along. Here’s my book beginning for the week. Feel free to leave a comment and say hi or link up to your blog and I’ll pay a visit.

Book Beginnings is hosted by Rose City Reader. Every Friday share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author’s name.

“They called the world beyond the walls of the Pod ‘The Death Shop’. A million ways to die out there. Aria never thought she’d get so close.”











And the book is:

Under the Never Sky

by Veronica Rossi


Exiled from her home, the enclosed city of Reverie, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland–known as The Death Shop–are slim. If the cannibals don’t get her, the violent, electrified energy storms will. She’s been taught that the very air she breathes can kill her. Then Aria meets an Outsider named Perry. He’s wild–a savage–and her only hope of staying alive.

A hunter for his tribe in a merciless landscape, Perry views Aria as sheltered and fragile–everything he would expect from a Dweller. But he needs Aria’s help too; she alone holds the key to his redemption. Opposites in nearly every way, Aria and Perry must accept each other to survive. Their unlikely alliance forges a bond that will determine the fate of all who live under the never sky.

My Thoughts:

This is an oldie, but in my opinion, a goodie. I really like these first lines. They are intriguing and drew me forward. I really enjoyed this series. I’d recommend it to YA dystopian lovers out there that haven’t read it yet.

What do you think of this book beginning? Have you read this book before? What did you think?

  1. As soon as I read this, I was wondering if it was Under the Never Sky. I’m sure it’s only because I saw Aria’s name; I’ve yet to come across another character named Aria. I loved Under the Never Sky even though I don’t normally enjoy dystopians and so rarely read them.
