First book in the series

                                                               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.

Set in the harsh but often beautiful world of Veronica Rossi's "unforgettable" Under the Never Sky (, this captivating prequel novella stands on its own for new readers and offers series fans a fascinating look into the character of Roar. Poignant and powerful, Roar and Liv is a love story that will "capture your imagination and your heart." (Justine on Under the Never Sky)

I was excited to discover more about Roar in this novella from his perspective because he was one of my favourite characters from the Under the Never Sky Series. As Perry’s best friend, Roar is a proper ‘lad’ and yet he’s loyal and loving - the object of his affections being is Perry’s sister, Liv, and she feels exactly the same way. However, Liv and Roar are not set to have the happy life together they expected after the Tides tribe leader/blood lord, and also Liv’s brother, arranges her marriage to another tribes’ blood lord in exchange for food and resources which the Tides desperately need.

This novella was a little flat and underwhelming for me as I wanted to learn more about Roar and further experience his witty humour but unfortunately, this doesn’t quite come across the same in the Roar & Liv novella as it did in Under the Never Sky. Overall this novella was an interesting read, especially regarding events that happen in Through the Ever Night (book 2) which this novella further helps provide background for. As novellas go, this was good and worth reading for another book set in this world.
