Fantastic Final

This final entry in the Chemical Garden trilogy finds Rhine upstairs once again in the mansion with sister wife, Cecily and husband, Linden. Desperate to find her brother, Rowen, Rhine teams up on her quest, meeting old "friends," typing up loose ends, and answering lingering questions.

DeStefano has breathed more life and emotion into each character making them more relatable and I found myself rooting for those I previously felt indifferent about. Bratty Cecily matures into a caring, thoughtful young woman; Linden becomes his own man, wriggling out from under his father's thumb; Rhine shares more of her inner thoughts and desires; and Vaughan shows myriad emotions (no spoiler alerts from me). There are gasp-worthy moments and the ending is satisfying and well done.

As one of the better YA writers, Lauren DeStefano creates an interesting premise, close to Atwood's, "The Handmaid's Tale." She imagines a haunting, eerie, yet hopeful world where the characters fight to live, find meaning, and fulfill their dreams. There's more depth and danger in her books. Truly a wonderful trilogy and wonder why it doesn't get more attention than some of the Twilight Copycats?

Stressful ending but a great story

This was an excellent story. It didn't have the ending that I wanted, but it was a proper ending and I can respect it.
