Only think I have to say about this is TOOK THEM LONG ENOUGH! same picture, same everything just showing more then an ARM! and they moved the title so its not in the center, I really don't like perfectly centered titles.
So whats your take on this?
What if you knew exactly when you would die?
Thanks to modern science, every human being has become a ticking genetic time bomb—males only live to age twenty-five, and females only live to age twenty. In this bleak landscape, young girls are kidnapped and forced into polygamous marriages to keep the population from dying out.
When sixteen-year-old Rhine Ellery is taken by the Gatherers to become a bride, she enters a world of wealth and privilege. Despite her husband Linden's genuine love for her, and a tenuous trust among her sister wives, Rhine has one purpose: to escape—to find her twin brother and go home.
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 Rhine is growing dangerously attracted to, Rhine attempts to break free, in the limted time she has left.
Wow. Wither was mind blowing. Now I don't normally speak about the style of the writing, but the writing of this book was so graceful, it was just hard to stop reading.
The story is told through Rhine's eyes and I think that was a very good choice, there is so much going on in this world, and Rhine is likely the strongest person in house in which most of the story takes place. The story starts with Rhine being kidnapped and it turns out she is begin forced to become the bride wife of Linden when his wife has died because of the Virus, this virus is the reason men don't live past 25 and women 20, everyone who was born after the virus was launched is a ticking time bomb, who will not live past the respected ages. What makes Rhine so special is that her parents were working to cure the virus, and they were killed because of it, and she is stronger for it, she had to grow up on the streets with her twin brother, fighting to life, where this isnt diffrent of many people in the book, Rhine wasn't in an orphanage, or was selling herself to get buy. Which makes her rare in this society.
The cover is beautiful the quote in the beginning, is one of my fav T.S Eliot, and the out lay of the book is amazing! I can not wait to get a finish copy of this!
