Roar and Liv: Review

Finally I can get my hands on Roar and Liv!


Before Perry and Aria, there was Roar and Liv.

After a childhood spent wandering the borderlands, Roar finally feels like he has a home with the Tides. His best friend Perry is like a brother to him, and Perry's sister, Liv, is the love of his life. But Perry and Liv's unpredictable older brother, Vale, is the Blood Lord of the Tides, and he has never looked kindly on Roar and Liv's union. Normally, Roar couldn't care less about Vale's opinion. But with food running low and conditions worsening every day, Vale's leadership is more vital—and more brutal—than ever. Desperate to protect his tribe, Vale makes a decision that will shatter the life Roar knew and change the fate of the Tides forever.

Set in the harsh but often beautiful world of Veronica Rossi's "unforgettable" Under the Never Sky (Examiner.com), this captivating prequel novella stands on its own for new readers and offers series fans a fascinating look into the character of Roar. Poignant and powerful, Roar and Liv is a love story that will "capture your imagination and your heart." (Justine on Under the Never Sky)


This is a short story, so I will keep the review short.

Roar is really different from the one I know about in Under the Never Sky. He's... well, more fierce. And I like him even more. Liv is fierce too, which is really rare in short stories. Although she should be considering she is living Outside. Two fierce guys should definitely be together. 

Perry... Perry is also slightly different from the one in Under The Never Sky. He's still loyal to his friend, but he's a little bit kinder back then. And I blame Vale for his change of personality. I hate Vale for trading Talon to the Dwellers back in Under The Never Sky, and I hate him even more when he trade his sister (his SISTER!) to Sable, which is obviously not one of the nice guys. Glad that he died in Under The Never Sky.

The story is short yet it's very clear about what the story's about. There's no crap in this short story. Everything shouldn't be cut or anything. And their relationship is really sweet and clear and innocent, not like some dark and complicated love that will sometimes confuse you. I love Roar and Liv. Not just the story, but also the two guys.

And there's an excerpt of Through The Ever Night in my edition, and I was only a step from going all-out fangirl motion. Months. It doesn't sound like months have been past. But I guess Aria is no Dweller now. She's an Aud now (grinning), and she should be trusted. Can't wait for Through The Ever Night!

Rating: 9/10
