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.

In this breathtaking conclusion to Lauren DeStefano’s Chemical Garden trilogy, everything Rhine knows to be true will be irrevocably shattered.

I've be super excited about this book. Sever is the last book in the Chemical Gardens trilogy, and I know it's going to be epic. The first two books were absolutely fantastic, and this will be no different. I have very high expectations for this book. I want to know so many things, and I want so many relationships to be tied up. I have know idea how DeStefano will tie up the love triangle between Rhine, Gabriel, and Linden, and I get kind of apprehensive when I think about it. All I know is that my feelings will be slightly overwhelmed when I get this book.
