Under the Never Sky (2012) – Veronica Rossi

The world: Presumably in a post-apocalyptic future, Dwellers live in Pods – interconnected domes which make up their cities among vast wastelands. Each Dweller has a Smarteye, a device which allows people to “fraction” and visit virtual-reality worlds known as Realms where they can do whatever they want with just a thought. The Pods are to protect citizens from the Aether – a mysterious thing, presumably natural weather element that is constantly in the sky and can bring storms. What is the Aether and how did it get there? Who knows.

World After (2013) – Susan Ee

After almost losing my copy of World After while moving house, I am finally getting around to reading it. Back to the world where angels have brought the apocalypse upon the inferior humans.
