Under The Never Sky by Veronica Rossi

Aria is seventeen and has never seen the sun. She lives in a large pod, where they are self-sustained. Her mother hasn't contacted her in over a week, so Aria decides to take the situation into her own hands and try and charm the information out of Soren, the son of one of the councilmen. When they and a few friends decide to break into a neglected pod, things don't turn out quite the way Aria planned.

Waking up in a clinic, Aria tries to recollect what happened the night before. Her Smartscreen, a clear eye patch that she always wears and lets her visit the realms, a virtual reality, is missing. When Soren had attacked her the eve before, he had removed it, but not before she had recorded his actions. Unable to produce the eye, Aria is found guilty of many crimes and exiled.

Not used to the conditions in the outside, Aria believes she will die. Inside the pod, no one got sick, aged or was hurt and food was plentiful. But outside, she can't breathe and every bump and bruise is painful. Peregrine finds her and decides they can help one another.

Perry's nephew was kidnapped by the people, the dwellers, inside the pod. He means to get him back, at any cost. A hunter, Perry has lived a hard life compared to those who reside in the pods. With the Aether destroying most of their crops, he believes it is time for his tribe to move. However, his brother, who is the leader, disagrees. Perry knows he will have to kill his brother to gain control of the tribe or leave. But before he leaves, he is determined to get his nephew back.

As Perry and Aria journey to their destination, they become to know one another. Most dwellers and outsiders don't like one another at all, but they know that each of them is the other's only hope. Pebbled with danger, set in a unique and fantastic world and a touch of romance, Under the Never Sky is a phenomenal read! Highly recommend!!

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
