The 'Outsiders' are the more primitive society eking out a living by hunting for their scarce food supplies over the parched wasteland known as 'The Death Shop'.
Then there are the pod dwellers who survive in the protected, computerized dome of Reverie - literally a virtual reality world.
When Outsider Perry (Peregrine) meets pod dweller Aria their two worlds collide and an adventure begins to find Aria's missing mother and to find better lands for Perry's tribe.
"Under The Never Sky" is a huge story with many subplots (my only criticism - perhaps a little too many subplots at times.) It is filled with adventure and action. The characters are wonderfully flawed and real even though some possess rare paranormal powers which only end up making them that much more interesting.
There is an endearing romance that develops between the two main characters, but the best part is that it marinates slowly building into a passionate romance with magical possibilities.
