The second book in The Chemical Garden Trilogy reveals a world as captivating and as dangerous as the one Rhine left behind in "Wither."
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 find Rhine's twin brother, Rowan, the two press forward, amid 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 twenty and men die at age twenty-five, 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.
