Set just before the events of Into the Still Blue, the conclusion to Veronica Rossi's Under the Never Sky trilogy, this breathtaking novella is a satisfying stand-alone for new readers as well as an exciting glimpse at favorite characters from the trilogy. Pulsing with romance and danger, Brooke will leave readers desperate for the conclusion to this epic and unforgettable saga.

The only fight she can't win is the one for Perry's heart. Following the stunning climax in Through the Ever Night, the Tides have been forced to seek shelter from the Aether storms in a dismal, secluded cave. But Brooke's memories of the cave go back much further, to when she and Perry used to come here together. That was before Perry fell in love with Aria and before Vale's dealings with the Dwellers altered the course of the Tides forever.

Now, with her sister back from a haunting year in captivity and Aria lying unconscious in the sick bay, Brooke struggles to put the pieces of her life back together. Without Perry, who is she? And what is her role in this frightening new world? As these questions swirl about her, an old threat to the Tides resurfaces, and Brooke is forced to put the lives of her people before her own. But in taking this step outside of herself, Brooke may finally discover what she truly wants.

Brooke’s character has been a bit of an enigma in both Under the Never Sky and Through the Ever Night. As Perry’s ex, she’s always been part of the story through her interactions with Perry and Aria’s weariness of her, however she’s never had a serious part to play in the development of the story. I therefore didn’t really know what to expect before reading this novella and wasn’t eager to read it. However, once I started reading Brooke’s POV and discovering more about her I actually found myself liking her character and addicted to the situations which were developed in this novella.

The Brooke novella is definitely a short story because of the elements that are wrapped up from Under the Never Sky and Through the Ever Night which are addressed within Into the Still Blue. In book 2, Wylan and other members of the tribe left the Tides after an incident and in this novella we discover the aftermath of that. I really liked seeing this aftermath as well as learning more about the brothers within the ‘Six’ and the flirting that ensues with Brooke. A definite read for all fans of the Under the Never Sky series – a novella that cannot be missed!
