Before Perry and Aria, there was Roar and Liv.
But before Perry and Aria, there was Roar and Perry and Liv.
Even though this short story was just supposed to be a novella about Roar and Liv and their love story before Vale sold her off and she ran away, it gives us a much deeper insight into Perry and Vale and Live as well, along with their tumultuous relationship.
Somehow, even though I’ve read a book from Perry’s POV and gotten to know him through Aria’s POV, I never really appreciated his strength of character and his loyalty and the sacrifices he makes for others as much as I should have before Roar and Liv.
And Liv’s character is another matter entirely. She’s such a fabulous person; she has such a strong spirit and depth and she is completely unlike Aria.

Though I’m guessing that won’t be the case anytime soon if what I’m reading about Through the Ever Night is true.
At the end of this story, I was all but:
