My Thoughts: I did not like this novella as much as the other one. It was interesting to find out more about Brooke though. I don’t dislike her. That doesn’t mean that I like her. I feel like I am understand her better though.

My Thoughts: Even thought this is technically before the trilogy, I would suggest reading this after the main books. There are several spoilers. I liked this novella. It was sweet and revealed more about Liv. I guess I misunderstood the whole time frame that the series took place. I thought it was a much longer span of time.

Blurb: Since she’d been on the outside, she’d survived an Aether storm, she’d had a knife held to her throat, and she’d seen men murdered. This was worse.
Exiled from her home, the enclosed city of Reverie, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland—known as The Death Shop—are slim. If the cannibals don’t get her, the violent, electrified energy storms will. She’s been taught that the very air she breathes can kill her. Then Aria meets an Outsider named Perry. He’s wild—a savage—and her only hope of staying alive.

My Thoughts: I really like this book! I love the plot, characters, pacing, and the action. It was really hard for me to just listen to this in my car, or leave my car because I wanted to know what was going to happen! I think Perry is going to be one of my favorite characters and fictional crush.
Each chapter switch perspective, which I think was done very well. I really got a good understanding of what each character was feeling and thinking. However, it was not always spoon feed. Also, I liked how not everything was made into a big deal.
At first, as always, I was not sure if I was going to like the narrator (Bernadetta Dunne Flagler). That quickly passed. I really like how she read the novel. Some parts were annoying, but overall I enjoyed her reading.
