Sever (Chemical Garden) by Lauren DeStefano


"Sever" is the last book in the Chemical Garden, trilogy. The title is very appropriate and we finally find out exactly what is behind the meaning of, chemical garden.

Everything ties up fairly nicely and nearly all questions are answered. The plot moves a lot slower than I would have liked but it is definitely worth the read. All the character's have grow up quite a bit by the end of this series, which is fantastic since most often character's stay stagnate.

I enjoyed, "Sever" but isn't not as clever or as well written as, "Wither" but that doesn't mean it isn't worth reading especially if you've come to enjoy the characters as much as I did.

Grade: B



Overview: [B&N]

Time is running out for Rhine in this conclusion to the New York Times bestselling Chemical Garden Trilogy.
With the clock ticking until the virus takes its toll, Rhine is desperate for answers. After enduring Vaughn’s worst, Rhine finds an unlikely ally in his brother, an eccentric inventor named Reed. She takes refuge in his dilapidated house, though the people she left behind refuse to stay in the past. While Gabriel haunts Rhine’s memories, Cecily is determined to be at Rhine’s side, even if Linden’s feelings are still caught between them.
Meanwhile, Rowan’s growing involvement in an underground resistance compels Rhine to reach him before he does something that cannot be undone. But what she discovers along the way has alarming implications for her future—and about the past her parents never had the chance to explain.
