Let me start by saying I absolutely loved this one! I'm always nervous that the 2nd book in a trilogy will just be filler with no real substance. Well this book is no filler!
There is just as much action, heartbreak, romance, character development, pulse-pounding excitement and adventure as Under the Never Sky. I couldn't put this one down!
At first it took me awhile to adjust to the new male narrator. To me it just gave this book a different vibe then the first. Of course it doesn't help much that I didn't care for his narration (too flat in my opinion). However, the book is so good that it didn't really matter once the story got going.
If you loved Under the Never Sky then you will absolutely love this one too. Just be warned that it will leave you anxious for book 3.

What did you like best about Through the Ever Night? What did you like least?
I wish I had something constructive to say but alas, I am just going to rant about the narrator at this point. If you loved the narration on "Under the Never Sky", be very wary of this book.
I thought "Under the Never Sky" was one of the best listens I've ever had from Audible. Bernadette Dunne Flagler was AMAZING - she just did an amazing job performing that book. I was SO, SO looking forward to hearing her again on this sequel.
Well, they didn't bring her back, for whatever reason. (Only DEATH would be a good enough reason, to my mind, and I certainly hope and pray THAT wasn't the case!)
I am about fifteen minutes into the MUCH anticipated "Through the Ever Night", and already I can envision myself bashing my head against my keyboard in frustration and misery.
This narrator is TERRIBLE! And he doesn't pronounce "Scire" correctly! He says it "sire"...in the first book it clearly says that it is supposed to sound kind of like "scare". Rrrgghh! I can't stand narrators who don't do their research! And he .... reads.... so ....freakin' .... slowly! It just sounds so fake. Sigh. Weep. Weep. Sob.
What did you like best about this story?
Will update this review when (IF) I can make it through this audiobook. I hope I can hear past the narrator and get into the story so I can actually FIND something to like.
What didn’t you like about Michael Goldstrom’s performance?
Was there anything TO like about this "narration"? So unemotional, so fake...no feeling of really being WITH the characters, as in the first book. I feel like someone is reading to me, not like I am INSIDE another world. He makes the characters sound childlike and goofy.
Aria is read as though she is a total melodramatic, wussy ...CHICK.
Perry is read like he is about fifteen and a little mentally challenged. Totally NOT sexy.
Bring back the narrator from "Under the Never Sky"!!!! Tears on my laptop keyboard.
Did Through the Ever Night inspire you to do anything?
Stab my ears with a sharpened pencil.
Any additional comments?
Get Bernadette Dunne Flagler to reprise this book! PLEASE get Bernadette Dunne Flagler back and rerecord this book so that it can be worthy of the first one! PLEASE!
