“The interwoven narratives of both male and female protagonists offer broad appeal. Already selling in more than twenty countries and with film rights optioned by Warner Bros. Entertainment, Rossi’s first novel has the potential to be a blockbuster.” (Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA))
“Rossi nails the feat of offering dual perspectives. Rossi grounds her worldbuilding in language, creating idioms for the Dwellers and Outsiders that add texture to their respective myths; her characters are brave and complex and her prose smooth and evocative. Inspired, offbeat and mesmerizing.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))
“An incredibly original plot. You won’t be able to put this book down…we can’t wait for the next installment in the trilogy!” (Seventeen.com)
“An unforgettable dystopian masterpiece.” (Examiner.com)
“Fans of The Hunger Games will cheer Aria’s gradual, warrior-like transformation over the course of the novel. Perry is an enigmatic figure whose past emerges slowly and whose strength of character is only amplified by his flaws.” (Booklist)
“Aria is a memorable protagonist as she battles her own shortcomings with the same ferocity as she fights for the lives of those she loves. The world itself-sharply divided into garishly surreal Realms, cozy Pods, and harsh, unforgiving outside-is as creatively and lavishly developed as the characters themselves.” (The Horn Book)
“Rossi’s novel transcends. There’s a luminescence to her world that denies the grim realities of environmental degradation, domed cities, genetic disease, and roaming bands of cannibals. It comes across as the work of a master craftsman.” (School Library Journal (starred review))
“Refreshing. Exhilarating. Rossi unravels the world’s secrets, perils, and wonders with a sure hand.” (Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books)
“Will capture your imagination and your heart.” (Justine)
Since she’d been on the outside, she’d survived an Aether storm, she’d had a knife held to her throat, and she’d seen men murdered. This was worse.
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.
