Over at Lauren DeStefano’s blog, she’s having a giveaway for ARCs of the first two books in her Chemical Garden Trilogy! Now, this is special because book two, Fever, isn’t out yet. It doesn’t even have a cover image yet! (Hence Lauren’s lovely artist’s rendering in the photo.)
I absolutely loved Wither, which is the story of a girl named Rhine who is kidnapped and forced into a polygamous marriage at just 16. In this world, men only live to 25 and women to 20, so they’re expected to get married young and start popping out babies until they find a cure that will make people live full lives again. It’s a really fascinating, dark, seedy world, but Rhine is such a bold character, and I love how she struggles to escape but also forges a strong bond with her sister-wives. You can read my full review of Wither here.
