Under the Never Sky

Under the Never Sky - Veronica Rossi I read it once, put it down, and had to walk away to think about what I liked and didn't like about it.I felt that the worldbuilding, especially within Reverie and the Realms, was very weak, but the worldbuilding outside the Pods was incredibly strong and saved the book. Character building was exquisite and achingly beautiful at times. The nuances of the characters were so light and they were woven together versus shoved or pulled or prodded together roughly. It was very well done.I enjoyed the story more than I thought, and read it a second time a day later. It was better the second time around and it's likely a story I'll reread!
