Review:

With the “Under the Never Sky” series being one of my favorite guilty pleasures, I could not wait to get my hands on “Into the Still Blue”.  Aria, Perry, Roar, Cinder and Company were in a bad situation the last time I saw them, and I was glad to know the action picked up immediately from where the previous book ended.

Before I go any further, I need to say that I did enjoy the book.  It was a fast and fun read, and I do not regret reading it.  The characters are fun, the plot still makes no sense but for some reason I did not care, and I am a total Perry and Aria shipper.

With that out-of-the-way, I was still irritated to no end by the sheer predictability of the book.  It feels as though not one single curveball was thrown, and I could have spared myself the few hours it took me to read it by just knowing everything would happen exactly as I thought it would, with one exception, and that is that the author left a major plotline unresolved.  In fact, it goes completely unmentioned.  It is as if it never happened, and that is a pet peeve of mine.

I enjoyed it, but it felt way too phoned in to count as a satisfying conclusion to an otherwise fun story.
