The Chemical Garden Trilogy, Book 2 Rhine and Gabriel have escaped the mansion, but they’re still in danger. Outside, they find a world even more disquieting than the one they left behind. Determined to get to Manhattan and to find Rhine’s twin brother Rowan, the two press forward, amidst threats of being captured again . . . or worse. The road they are on is long and perilous-and in a world where young women only live to age 20 and men die at age 25, time is precious. In this sequel to Lauren DeStefano’s harrowing Wither, Rhine must decide if freedom is worth the price-now that she has more to lose than ever.
My Review: This was an amazing Sequel to Wither, it delves into the lives of Rhine and Gabriel as they try to live there lives outside the mansion and run into obstacles of being torn apart. Amazingly Rhine has grown into a strong female character who battles through each and every issue that comes into her life, including death defying obstacles. A enjoyable edition to my library and one I will probably reread in the future.
