Sever (The Chemical Garden, #3)

Oh my gosh, it has been entirely too long since I've blogged.  Or finished a book.  But, sometimes life gets in the way of what you really want to be doing.  I re-read The Fault in Our Stars last week and hopefully that has given me a kick in the butt to love reading and my blog again.  Here's an admittedly very short review of my latest conquest, Sever.

Lauren DeStefano
371 pages
Released: February 12, 2013
Publisher: Simon & Schuster

I so didn't want this book to end because that meant the end of a fantastic trilogy that I loved every minute of.  But, all good things must come to an end - or so they say - so I was eager to get this from the library and start reading.  In this final installment of The Chemical Garden trilogy, Rhine grows concerned about her brother's involvement in underground resistance.  Her brother, Rowan, believes Rhine to be dead, but Rhine is determined to find him and find out about their past with their parents.

The biggest question in my mind as I read was obviously, how is this going to end for Rhine, Cecily, and Linden?  Will there be a cure?  An explosion?  How bat-shit-crazy is Housemaster Vaughn going to get?  As I read along I was enjoying the storyline and trying to savor every last minute I could with these characters, but I still wanted to know - what's going to happen to them?

Obviously I can't tell you what happened.  But.  There was a couple plot twists towards the end of the book that surprised me.  And then the ultimate ending - well.  Let's just say I love Cecily that much more now, the little spitfire.

If you haven't started this trilogy yet, you must.  Lauren DeStefano is such a gifted writer who can truly paint a world with words.  While I'm sad The Chemical Garden trilogy is over, I'm really looking forward to reading her new series The Internment Chronicles.  There's no way that's not going to be awesome.
