The Chemical Garden grows – Wither and Fever out today

For 17-year-old Rhine Ellery, a daring escape from a suffocating polygamous marriage is only the beginning…

Fever follows on from Wither, the first book in the Chemical Garden trilogy. In Wither 16-year-old Rhine Ellery is kidnapped and sold as a bride to Linden, a rich young man with a dying wife. Even though he is kind to her, Rhine is desperate to escape her gilded cage – and Linden’s cruel father. With the help of Gabriel, a servant she is growing dangerously attracted to, Rhine attempts to break free, in what little time she has left. This is now available in a beautiful paperback format.

The second in Lauren DeStefano’s The Chemical Garden Trilogy was also released today and Fever looks to be a guaranteed pleaser. The Handmaid’s Tale for a new generation. In Fever we see Rhine heading back to Manhattan on a quest to find her twin brother with the aid of fellow escapee Gabriel, but a world where women live to 20 and men die at 25, they soon find themselves out of their depth. We are sure you are just as eager as we were to get your hands on this second instalment from Lauren DeStafano and so we are offering you the chance to win yourself a copy – 5 up for grabs!

‘Lauren DeStefano crafts an all too believable future. I loved the world, the romance, the writing – exactly the kind of book I’ve been craving to read.’

Carrie Ryan, New York Times bestselling author of The Forest of Hands and Teeth
