Sever are Ebook This is honestly the worst fucking book I've read in my life. I made it through the first half without much issue, but I was literally guzzling wine during the last half because I needed something to temper the rage, fury, and general disgust that was actually making my blood pressure increase.Like, where do I even begin? This book is a lesson in how to not fucking write dystopian fiction. Or any fiction.SPOILERS TO THE MAX(view spoiler)[1. Let's start with the complete helpless idiocy of our main characters. We'll start with Linden, who is possibly the stupidest character I have ever had the displeasure of reading. Actually, no. Calling him stupid would be giving him too much credit because that would actually be assigning him a distinct characteristic that dictates the way he acts. He's simply a puppet for moving the plot forward by whatever means necessary. Like, okay--first he doesn't believe Rhine, but he still wants to help her escape (?). But then suddenly (and with no additional evidence) he & Cecily do believe her, so they want to escape too. But oh, the moment Cecily tells him that she wants to go to back to Vaughn, he's cool with that too. Do you see what I'm saying? He doesn't act logically. The author just pushes him wherever she wants her plot to go. It's completely unbelievable and forced. 2. Rhine is a mindbogglingly useless, fickle, aimless protagonist. She wants to escape from Vaughn, so what does she do? She teams up with Linden, who is loyal to Vaughn, and Cecily, who has a tracker somewhere in her body that ALLOWS VAUGHN TO LOCATE HER, and goes to the least obvious place possible.............. Vaughn's brother's house. Brilliant. So not only does Vaughn know where she is/visit regularly, but she just, like, stays there for a while. Chills out. Cleans stuff. Putters about. Eats apples. Says hi when Vaughn when he swings by. ??????????? What are you doing? What's the plan, Rhine?3. So Rhine has been planning to leave to go find her brother since, like, page one. Literally half a book later, after aimless hanging out with Vaughn's brother and doing nothing, she finally decides to leave. Seriously though--nothing. Guess she just doesn't care about Rowan and Gabriel enough to stop doing nothing and go find them.4. These dimwits drive for FOUR HOURS before they decide they are exhausted, park, and then get kidnapped. By the way, they're trying to get from Florida to NY, which is like, at least a day's drive. And they make it four. hours. Like, Jesus Christ on a fucking cracker, it takes more more than 4 hours for me to drive to the Grand Canyon and I live in goddamn Arizona. What. Are. You. Doing. With. Your. Life.5. So the whole reason that Rhine ran away was so that she could find her brother and escape Vaughn. Okay, get this. Within, like, 2 pages of finding Rowan, HE TAKES HER RIGHT BACK TO VAUGHN. And like, wouldn't you expect Rhine to protest and fight and try to explain to her brother what Vaughn did to her so they could run screaming in the other direction? Yes, you would. What does she do? Firstly, she doesn't bother to clue her brother in on a single one of Vaughn's atrocities, and secondly, she just gets on a plane with Vaughn to Hawaii. Like, without even flinching or saying no or protesting in any way. What?!?!??!?! How does that even make sense?6. So we've waited 2.5 books to meet Rowan and he had the potential to be an interesting character because he is 1) ANGRY (or so we were led to believe) and 2) has (plot twist!) been manipulated by the enemy. But Rhine just like, doesn't care. Vaughn is Rowan's hero, and Rhine's like "well.... I could tell him the truth.... but he obviously looks up to Vaughn and I don't want to take that away from him...." Is this some type of joke? What the fuck are you doing? What's the point of introducing all these interesting "layers" to Rowan if you're not going to use them? For example, he seemed so passionate about what he was doing for her sake when he thought she was dead, but he clearly didn't give a fuck about her opinion or experiences. This could have worked in the novel's favor if it were illustrating how horribly Vaughn manipulated him, but it's not even discussed. Like literally no one cares that Rowan's a shitbag. And there are all these passages about how she needs to talk to Rowan privately and they are kind of able to communicate it through meaningful stares and Rhine's all like, "if there's one thing Rowan can do, it's find a way for us to talk privately." So I'm like, oh, Rowan's clearly going to do something clever and awesome so they can talk privately. BUT IT NEVER HAPPENS. Like it's just swept under the rug and not acknowledged again.7. Oh my god, when Linden, Cecily, and Rhine got on Reed's plane, I was kinda tipsy and laughing hysterically at the thought that it would probably be best if the plane simply crashed and everyone died so that this abominable book would end. And then it actually did crash (kind of), and then Linden actually did die. Like what the fuck yo, what fucking purpose does this serve omg if you're going to kill Linden at least do it in a way that services the plot not just "lol he died randomly on a joyride"8. I was skimming by the time I finished the book, but I really don't understand how this society functions. How can Hawaii exist in paradise while the rest of the continental US is in shambles? Like is the virus not there or were people not genetically modified? It makes no sense. And I don't understand introducing the society's history if you're not going to integrate it into the plot--wasn't the whole point of the cure to control society? Isn't that going to happen now? The solution to this society's issues lies far beyond finding a cure, but this was not addressed at fucking all.Also, it's ABOMINABLE, both scientifically and in terms of dystopian fiction, to call this condition a "virus" for 2 books and refer to the treatment as a cure instead of a vaccination/immunization, and then backpedal furiously in the third book to be like, "Lol it's not really a virus," but then fail to explain what it is. At all. You shouldn't have called it a fucking virus to begin with. Not to be an ass, but the author doesn't seem to know anything about science and the bio major in me died an angry death reading this book.9. Also, how does it make sense that Vaughn would try to destroy other research labs if he was so desperate to find a cure? (hide spoiler)]I'm too old for this shit. Thank the lord jesus that there are no more books in this series, and may this be a lesson to never start series I'm not going to have interest in finishing..

A viral Book Sever COVER REVEAL!Oh, boy... It's probably my least favorite of the three. I'm sorry, Lauren. You know that I still love you. But it's just not unique enough! The other covers were totally different and crazy and this one just didn't live up to its expectations. TITLE REVEAL!The title of the third Wither book is . . .SEVER.You, right along with me, might be thinking "What the hell does the word sever have to do with anything?"Are Gabriel's testicles going to be severed off?Is Rhine going to sever her connection with someone?All I know is I can't freaking wait to find out.
