So what do you need to do to join in?
By Lauren DeStefano
Running away brings Rhine and Gabriel right into a trap, in the form of a twisted carnival whose ringmistress keeps watch over a menagerie of girls. Just as Rhine uncovers what plans await her, her fortune turns again. With Gabriel at her side, Rhine travels through an environment as grim as the one she left a year ago - surroundings that mirror her own feelings of fear and hopelessness. The two are determined to get to Manhattan, to relative safety with Rhine’s twin brother, Rowan. But the road there is long and perilous - and in a world where young women only live to age twenty and young men die at twenty-five, time is precious. Worse still, they can’t seem to elude Rhine’s father-in-law, Vaughn, who is determined to bring Rhine back to the mansion...by any means necessary. In the 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.
I've read Wither a couple of months ago and I have to say that I really liked it! Nevertheless, the ending, didn't make me think about a sequel; even if there were lots of mysteries that hadn't been solved, Gabriel and Rhine had escaped and it didn't seem there were going to be problems about that. But now, I'm so excited about the sequel that I can't wait to put my hands on it!! The distophian world that the author created is really intriguing and I hope she will continue in creating amazing twists and harsh situations.
Have you already read Fever? Do you think is a good sequel to Wither?
