What if you knew exactly when you would die? In the not-too-distant future, genetic engineering has turned every newborn into a ticking time bomb — males only live to age 25 and females only live to age 20.
In this bleak landscape, young girls are kidnapped and forced into polygamous marriages to keep the population from dying out. When 16-year-old Rhine Ellery is taken by "the Gatherers" to become a bride, she enters a world of wealth and privilege. Rhine has only one purpose after she has been married to her new husband, Linden: to escape and find her twin brother.
But Rhine has more to contend with than losing her freedom. Linden's eccentric father is bent on finding an antidote to the genetic virus that is getting closer to taking his son, even if it means collecting corpses in order to test his experiments. With the help of Gabriel, a servant to whom she is dangerously attracted, Rhine is desperate to learn the truth and protect those closest to her. But, as her sister wife Cecily keeps insisting, her role may be much bigger than that.
In the first two books of the Chemical Garden trilogy, Wither and Fever, Rhine struggles to escape the mansion and then to navigate the brutal world outside. Now in Sever, the third and final book, Rhine uncovers some shattering truths about the past that her parents never had the chance to tell her and the alarming implications regarding her own genes. She may be the one who can save the human race.
My Thoughts: I really like this cover, but it seems like she doesn't blend in well with the background. Like, she's just placed there, and everything looks like it's floating in midair. Other than that, it goes really awesome with the first two book covers in this series. :)

My Thoughts: Just so you guys know, I gave the links to The Iron Legends instead of the actual novella itself, because this is included in the paperback will all of the novellas coming out in August. And this comes out in September. It's better. c: Anyway, I love the cover for this, as any of the Iron Fey covers. They're so beautiful, and this one is especially creepy to me since I hate snakes. xD

Series: Blue Bloods, #7
Watch out for the explosive finale in the Blue Bloods series. The seventh and final novel in the epic saga.
All your questions answered. . . All the mysteries explained. . . Friends reunited. . . Hearts broken. . . Will Bliss return with the Hellhounds? Will Schuyler save the Blue Bloods? Who will live? Who will die?
My Thoughts: I don't really have much to say about this one. I've only read the first...four(i think) in the series. I like it, but I'm not a big fan. So this, I guess, it a nice addition to the series. c:
