Aria is a teenager in the enclosed city of Reverie. Like all Dwellers, she spends her time with friends in virtual environments, called Realms, accessed through an eyepiece called a Smarteye. Aria enjoys the Realms and the easy life in Reverie. When she is forced out of the pod for a crime she did not commit, she believes her death is imminent. The outside world is known as The Death Shop, with danger in every direction.
Outsider, Perry has always known hunger, vicious predators, and violent
energy storms from the swirling electrified atmosphere called the
Aether. A bit of an outcast even among his hunting tribe, Perry
withstands these daily tests with his exceptional abilities, as he is
gifted with powerful senses that enable him to scent danger, food and
even human emotions.
They come together reluctantly, for Aria
must depend on Perry, whom she considers a barbarian, to help her get
back to Reverie, while Perry needs Aria to help unravel the mystery of
his beloved nephew’s abduction by the Dwellers. Together they embark on a
journey challenged as much by their prejudices as by encounters with
cannibals and wolves. But to their surprise, Aria and Perry forge an
unlikely love - one that will forever change the fate of all who live
UNDER THE NEVER SKY. From Goodreads
This was okay. Set in the future with the usual factions of the lucky ones in some kind of cover and the unlucky battling the elements and each other outside. Aria is thrown out, meets Perry and they have to work together. There were a few surprises in this one and I might continue this series at a later date.
