My Review of Sever by Lauren DeStefano
The book is well written and once I got to the halfway mark, I picked up interest in learning how the dots were connected. The author had created a true dystopian setting but it became obvious that Rhine had held some hope in her heart and apparently she was unaware of that hope herself. She was practical and she was also more open to change than I would have guessed. In the year she spent away from her brother she had matured, and had allowed resentment and anger to grow and flourish within her. But Rowan had been exposed to lies about her death(that wasn't). He had a totally different perspective of the man Dr Ashby was. Somehow, Rhine remained open minded enough to be still and learn some truths she was totally unaware of.
Secrets from the past were revealed and contributed to the happenings in this third book. And there is something about the way Lauren DeStefano crafts her words and story that draws the reader in. I am glad I finished the trilogy and I am satisfied with the conclusions.
However, I go in search now for something light and fanciful for my next reading adventure.
