Yet another trilogy where I didn’t review the second book… So strange! I’m beginning to wonder if maybe I should just avoid reviewing subsequent books in a series/trilogy so that I don’t have to worry about missing one somewhere in the middle. Anyone have any thoughts about that? Anyhow, rest assured that Fever was just as good as Wither and that the lack of a review only reflects on how poorly I keep up with reviewing books after I finish them!
Those of you still with me have, presumably, finished the first two books and know that Rhine is running out of time… Not only because she is getting nearer to her “expiration date,” as it were, but also because Vaughn is determined to experiment on her until he kills her or finds a cure [whichever comes first]. One way or the other, it seems certain she won’t be around for long. Still, Rhine has not given up the hope of finding a cure or escaping Vaughn’s clutches to find her twin brother, Rowan. She is sure that she can convince Rowan to stop destroying medical labs, which would increase the chances that someone can find a cure, if only she can get to him and let him know she’s still alive. Luckily, Linden loves her enough that he is willing to help. Rhine finds another unlikely ally in Vaughn’s brother, Reed, when Linden brings her and Cecily to hide at his ramshackle home in the woods. I won’t tell whether it ends well or tragically, but I am happy to report that characters new and old [some seemingly long-forgotten] come together in surprising ways to fill in the gaps and to tie up all the loose ends. Such a relief after spending so long wondering how it all ends!
