Set just before the events of Into the Still Blue, the conclusion to Veronica Rossi's "masterpiece" Under the Never Sky trilogy (Examiner.com), 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.
Never Sky, Tome 2,5 : Brooke
There is no forgetting where we are. No amount of good smell can take my mind off this cold, stale grave, or the Aether that’s put us here by destroying the world outside.
I look around me, at the Dweller cavern where I am stuck helping Molly. This place is the most desperate of all.
“Help me,” someone rasps behind me.
“Water,” moans another voice off in the shadows.
The sounds of the Dwellers wheezing and moaning have not ceased since I arrived.
They are sick. Every one of them is struggling to survive out here, out of their home, the Dweller Pod.
I kneel by a young Dweller girl wrapped in wool blankets. She is around my sister’s age, eight, and has a complexion as gray as ash. Her eyes are rolling back with fever and she looks a little monstrous, but I can’t make myself care. My sister has been back less than a day. I should be with Clara instead of this stranger.
Je n'aimais pas beaucoup Brooke dans les tomes précédents, elle tenait surtout le rôle de la "méchante ex-petite amie". Mais dans ce tome, elle s'est révélée être plus que ça et je me suis retrouvée à l'apprécier et à la comprendre. Vraiment bon comme hors série !
Une petite lecture très captivante et agréable. Pour moi ça a été un plaisir de la découvrir. Et je recommande ce demi-tome à tous les fans de la trilogie NEVER SKY qui est géniale ! :)
