Wither (Chemical Garden)

Wither (Chemical Garden) - Lauren DeStefano All I can say after reading this, is when will the next one be released? I just couldn't put this one down once I started and even now, I am still thinking about the characters. In this dystopian tale, Rhine is sixteen and forced into marriage after being stolen from her home. She learns that her husband is more or less a pawn in his father's mad scientist games in which he is experimenting on corpses to stop the insidious virus that plagues mankind. The virus causes women to die at twenty and men at twenty five.Without going into to much plot detail, Rhine tries to escape and with the help of her sister-wives, she gain the courage to make the final attempt. This is truly a page turner and it will leave you with many different feelings. I do hope in the end, Rhine finds her contentment. I guess I will have to wait for the installment to find this out.
