Even though it’s been favorably compared to Hunger Games and Divergent, Veronica Rossi’s debut novel Under the Never Sky stands out from the pack. Her world-building — eerie, high-tech and animalistic, bleak and somehow beautiful — invokes the feeling of famously detailed epic video games (like the Final Fantasy series) rather than cookie-cutter apocalyptic sci-fi. Fast-paced and exciting without being melodramatic, this is an exciting start to a unique trilogy — and a book so readable it’ll be hard to not finish it in one sitting. - Jennie
