Phwoar. I couldn't put this down. I mean, I could have, but I didn't have to, so I just stayed up all night reading it. Under the Never Sky is what would happen if Graceling and Blood Red Road and WALL-E had a baby. A really awesome baby.
This first book in a series (I think?) is full on post-apocalyptic and not-so-much dystopic (and I wish reviewers would just realize it's not dystopic instead of getting mad that there was not enough dystopic world building) but I think the series has the potential to become more of the latter if we find out more about what's going on inside the pods in further installments. Veronica Rossi, I am watching you.
