Waiting on Wednesday: Sever by Lauren DeStefano

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.  Its purpose is to spotlight eagerly-anticipated upcoming releases.

This week I’m eagerly awaiting:

Sever by Lauren DeStefano

Expected release date: February 12, 2013

With the clock ticking until the virus takes its toll, Rhine is desperate for answers. After enduring Vaughn’s worst, Rhine finds an unlikely ally in his brother, an eccentric inventor named Reed. She takes refuge in his dilapidated house, though the people she left behind refuse to stay in the past. While Gabriel haunts Rhine’s memories, Cecily is determined to be at Rhine’s side, even if Linden’s feelings are still caught between them.

Meanwhile, Rowan’s growing involvement in an underground resistance compels Rhine to reach him before he does something that cannot be undone. But what she discovers along the way has alarming implications for her future—and about the past her parents never had the chance to explain.

In this breathtaking conclusion to Lauren DeStefano’s Chemical Garden trilogy, everything Rhine knows to be true will be irrevocably shattered.

I could have sworn I already featured this book in a WoW post, but my records don’t indicate it.  At any rate, I’m looking forward to the end of DeStefano’s lyrical dystopian (post-apocalyptic?) world.  Even though I think the second book in the trilogy dragged and was ultimately a total let-down, I’m committed to seeing how Rhine’s story ends.  I won’t miss the (kind of) silly covers, though.

What are you waiting on this week?

    These covers continue to get weirder and weirder looking. But I am excited to see hot it all plays out so I won’t let the covers stop me!
