Jan 11, Jessica rated it it was amazing Shelves: If the world is in a good enough state to have a government then it’s got to have some sort of police force.

I think Lauren would have created a brilliant book if she kept it to one rather than three. In fact, she’s getting one laruen of the two stars I gave this book because without her it would’ve been a total disaster.

When Uncle Reed crash-lands the plane everyone is thrown forward. There were parts where I liked her fiery personality.

Tell us what you like, so we can send you books you’ll love. In Sever, when they see the ferris wheel of the carnival in the distance, Rhine moans about how awful it was there. Sure, she cared for Gabe, but destefamo in a romantic sense.

Jun 15, Meredith Holley marked it as not-gonna-do-it.

I could tell him the truth Rhine and Cicely came flying from all the way in the back of the cargo area to the front of the plane when it slammed into the ground. Glad it is a good series ending. I’m still not sure where the series comes down on the medicine vs. However, in this case, I will make an exception, because, though I don’t recall the word ever being used, this series runs off of horror movie logic: Uncle Reed and Linden are up front while Rhine and Cicely are in the cargo area in the back.


Immediately after reading book 2: And then the rest of the cover design looks like some cheesy still life that was thrown together by an intern or something at the last minute. Gabriel and Rhine obviously have absolutely no chemistry, so Rhine was totally going to go back to Linden someday. And of course by the end of Book 3Rhine is still the model of pure virginity, after everything she want through.

Books by Lauren DeStefano. All I know is I can’t freaking wait to find out. After all that effort to be rid of him. That’s not the case here. View all 39 comments. There were LOTS of good twists. Looking forward to what else Lauren has in store for us!


As for all the other characters, I felt each character come to terms with who they are and how they have developed from the first novel. Her brother protected her at first, but she left because she’s dumb and got sold to wealthy Linden as one of his four wives. She is constantly at battle with herself and the struggles and heartache she goes through just made me feel like I was in her head. I thought that the writing style was on point -as usual- I really enjoyed the lyricism of Lauren DeStefano’s style.

I was skimming by the time I finished the book, but I really don’t understand how this society functions. Rhine is still hoping to find her brother Rowan and reunite with Gabriel, the servant who ran away with her from the start. I loved it, but I also hated it.


After the extremely depressing trilogy, I was satisfied with the way the author ended Sever. Check it out please! She knew my secrets once before, and the consequences were devastating. DeStefano has an observant and occasionally pitiless eye, chronicling the cruelties, mercies, and inconsistencies of her young characters.

Sever (Chemical Gardens #3) by Lauren DeStefano –

It makes no sense. Mar 15, Chrissy rated it did not like it Shelves: Must redeem within 90 days.

But I will say that the most disappointing thing about this book is that I actually REALLY liked the first book in the series and to have it all end like this is just so There are so many more disappointing things in this book. Let’s start destefsno the cover. After two books of portraying him as pure, unstoppable evil, in Sever this just kind of She wants to escape from Vaughn, so what does she do? But I think that some YA stories are being sevver into becoming trilogies because they make more money that way, but not ALL stories were meant to be told in three books.

I honestly as cruel as this is wanted her to die at the one scene, so that Linden and Rhine could be together with no one else in the sver.
