He’s like a caveman. Sure, he likes to draw, but can I get a little bit more than that?

Efimera. Trilogia del Jardin Quimico

He’s no more ignorant of what’s going on in his own damn house than the Germans were of the camps they were living next to. I know I’ve rambled on for a while here, but I want to highlight that this book as no explanations for any of these questions.

In order for the icky factors of child brides one of them is only 13kidnappings, forced marriages, fixation on impregnation, murder, medical experimentations, and so on to be successful, they needed to be overridden by solid world-building, strong characters, and emotional depth. She is brave and practical and level headed. I am sure there will be some people taken egimera Wither.

Although, to be honest I can’t imagine a world where everyone dies so young either. In first and second world war, there were countries that stick together as allies to win the war, weren’t there allies in third world war or were the allies only from countries in North America?

I have found that I do enjoy a good young adult book and have really enjoyed some of the dystopian reads. So why the kidnapping? Two issues with this: Which is sad, because the premise was good, but everything that happened in the book can be essentially boiled down to Life of Luxury and Escape from… Whatever.

Such a strong pro-procreation scheme requires a efimsra of conditioning IMO, some structure that makes young people accept the idea they need to waste their precious years on being pregnant and producing children.


Plus Sestefano, the protagonist, has zero personality. La reina roja Victoria Aveyard. We have no idea what really happens outside of Rhine’s eyes. As for the romance, well I wasn’t too crazy about Linden or Gabriel. With that being said, Wither sucked.

It was MAGELLAN whose expedition first circumnavigated the globe; he had five ships and a two layren Google search will give you the names of all of them, none of which sound remotely like Columbus’s little fleet.

Further, in the pages of Wither, the kauren revealed to me, kidnapping, sleeping gas, and indentured servitude. Just making up some new horrible way people are treated in a future society and adding in some angsty love triangle isn’t enough! I was rather disturbed by the child bride aspect. Good luck with that.

If she had said the land was inhabitable, then okay. God, that is some gorgeous cover art. I can guarantee I will be picking up other books by her, just most likely not in this series.


What’s even funnier is that dying people are super obsessed with reproduction, careers, positions in their society. Rhine and her sister wives are locked away in a mansion. And while we’re at it, really? Almost a year passes within the novel, and the girls become family ‘sister wives’ to one another even despite their differences. Aug 25, karen rated it liked it Shelves: What age would you recommend this to?

Languid young women wander around a mansion in lacy gowns waiting to be impregnated by their joint husb The concept of a society in which girls are forced into polygamous marriages may not be everyone’s laure of a good time, but I like art that pushes boundaries or attempts to explore unusual subjects in a meaningful way.

What would be more believable would be if the second destefqno was born with defects, actual deformities, and come on guys, let’s be honest, ‘heterochromia’ is NOT a defect.



Lose the post-apoc business and make it a story about contemporary polygamy and child brides. Where are the raw materials processed?

How would a society even function? Somehow, 2 men who don’t even seem to spend very much time at work the husband even took a break from working all together apparently sobbing over the loss of his last wife can live in a vast mansion and support 3 wives, a whole host of house staff, and ever luxury imaginable, with grounds that seem to go on for miles and miles.

How about we bend science and come up with a genetic mutation that kills girls when they turn twenty and boys when they turn twenty-five? Not good enough for me to read a destefaano, but I left the book feeling a bit more positive than I expected. As I said, the writing style is lovely, and huge props for no typos as so often do I find them in published YA books nowadays, Efimeda found none.

Indian mythology is filled with stories of polygamy — a king with three wives, a queen with five husbands. So I gave it a try, despite my misgivings and the feelings deep in my gut. Playing with genetic engineering, scientists created a new, improved type of people, cured of decease, with longer lives, etc.

In fact, I wish this book had been about Rose and Linden. Sucked is a little bit too harsh. I’m not a chick that falls easily into hype but sometimes it can be hard to avoid, like with this book. Half of my friends liked it while friends with similar taste with me destefanp quite like it.

So why my generous rating?
