I have read mixed reviews about Through the Ever Sky but, I have to say I simply love this trilogy. I thought long about why I like it so much and others don’t. I came to the conclusion that it is the romance I love throughout the book. It is so tender and well written it also doesn’t shy away from the physical side of attraction that other YA novels do.
It has been a criticism with may trilogies that the second book can drop off and be the poor relation to the other two. This is certainly not the case with Through the Ever Night. In fact, I would say that this book is better than the first. The characters are well developed and engaging my favourite actually is one of the supporting characters. Roar for me is someone that I wish was my friend he is loyal, funny and charismatic. I have to also say that I love the two main characters although some have said they do not.
Another strength of this trilogy is that the books finish. Both novels have a start, middle and end and do not rely on the other two books to complete part of the story. There is also enough joy in reading them to make you want to continue with the series. For me, this is fast becoming one of my favourite YA trilogies and with competition such as The Hunger Games and Divergent, that is quite a claim.
