Roar and Liv takes place right before Under the Never Sky. We never get to meet Liv in UTNS, but we hear a lot about her from both Perry and Roar. It was nice to officially `meet' the girl that Roar is so crazy in love with, and to see them interact. Their sweet little moments together and their conversations made me laugh, swoon, sigh, and a couple of them were downright sexy and nearly took my breath away.
I also loved seeing more of Perry and Roar together. I adore those two! Their relationship runs so much deeper than friendship - they're like brothers (or as Perry said to Roar, "You're better than a brother" - which just about made me cry).
For a short story, Rossi sure packed an emotional punch. I felt like I spent a lot of the story grinning like an idiot and giggling like a school girl at the things Roar said and thought, but beyond that, there were really touching moments between Roar and Liv and Roar and Perry, and just like in Under the Never Sky, Vale, Perry and Liv's older brother made my blood boil.
An excellent addition to the Under the Never Sky series, Roar and Liv is a little taste of the amazing world and characters Rossi built, and it makes me even more eager for Through the Ever Night (January 2013).
I really love when authors write the short stories about minor characters, because you really get to see how they feel about the main characters and the situations and everything, and Rossi did an excellent job with introducing and developing Perry's friends and family. For example, although Vale is still a minor character in this story, I feel like I know him better and kind of understand why he did what he did. I still don't like him, but that's besides the point.
As I was awaiting Through the Ever Night, I saw in several places that reading Roar and Liv before Through the Ever Night was recommended. So I figured that I might as well give it a shot. And man, were all those people right. This story really gave depth to Roar and Liv, and it explains so much about why they are how they are in Through the Ever Night. I hope we get to see more short stories set in this world! 5/5, and I would definitely recommend this to anyone who enjoys this series!
In Under The Never Sky we are introduced to Roar and Liv's story. In Through The Ever Night we know a little bit more about what happened to Roar and Liv...but it is completely shattered by what happens to Liv at the end, leaving Roar broken. I knew all this and still I went ahead and read Roar and Liv.
With the Tides food rations running low and conditions worsening every day, Vale, Perry's older brother and Blood Lord of the Tides, makes the decision to give away Liv to Sable, Blood Lord of the Horns. When Roar finds out he is angry and threatens Vale, the man he swore to protect, Vale gives Roar a choice: stay and suffer the consequences or leave and live a life of exile. It's not a hard choice for Roar. He stays and is willing to suffer whatever punishment Vale may inflict.
But Perry steps in and takes the punishment for him.
I was literally crying my eyes out because...it was so loyal and brave of him. But it was also heartbreaking because of what he's been through.
Those circumstances did not change Vale's decision. Liv was still going to marry Sable. Period. After careful consideration Vale agrees to let Perry and Roar to take Liv to the Horns. They are accompanied by two of Vale's men, not entirely trusting his brother and Roar.Read more ›
I didn't want to love Roar and Liv together because I have a feeling Rossi is going to break my heart later on, but of course I did. I liked how their relationship was rooted in friendship, and it was heartwarming to see how much Roar was willing to fight for her. I can't imagine being in Liv's position and trying to cope with the pain of being separated from my family and the man with whom I want to spend the rest of my life.
