After enduring Vaughn's worst, Rhine finds an unlikely ally in his brother, an eccentric inventor named Reed, and she takes refuge in his dilapidated house. 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 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 the past her parents never had the chance to explain.
I honestly feel dead inside. This book has ripped my heart out of my chest, torn it up into pieces and stamped all over it. I spent the last six chapters in tears, wanting to read but not wanting to read. I felt so many emotions throughout this book, and Lauren DeStefano has broken me.
I loved this book as much as I loved Fever, although Wither is still my favourite. This book was full of scenes shared with my new favourite trio: Rhine, Linden and Cecily. These three have grown so much since the first book and I'm glad that they were still strong friends, even after all they've been through. Honestly I just want another book about them hanging out together and having a good time.
I didn't think there could be anymore world building but Lauren DeStefano managed to do it. The world grew in ways that I never thought would happen. I won't say any more because spoilers but it was very surprising. And also amazing.
