After get caught again, Rhine now living in hospital, trying to convenice Linden that his father was insane, Linden decided that Rhine would live in his uncle house, Reed. Still in searching of her twin brother, she decided to recover as soon as she can and start the searching. After feel better and told Reed about her plan, Linden trying to help her and said that he need time. And make sure he will help her meet her brother. 

Along with Cecily, Linden and Rhine start looking for her brother. But Vaughn will never let them go away like a bird. He make sure someone who get his son back will get everything they want. Poor them, they get caught and be carried to Madame's carnaval. Meeting Madame's again open the more secret about Vaughn, that Rose, was Madame's daughter. After knowing that Linden was married to Rose, Madame treat them well. 

When Linden and Cecily sleep, Rhine ask Jared help to drove her to place where she thought she will met Rowan, eventhough she's not sure and know that her brother was growing involvement because he thinks Rhine died because of the research of the cure.  Lucky her she finally meet Rowan.
"Cure" is one of the precious words in the English language. It's a short word. A clean and simple word. But it isn't so easy a things as it sounds.
Rowan told her that he was meeting with a doctor who paid him and tell him about her. And she knows, it was him, Vaughn. Surprised about how Rowan believe him and agree to be his experiment, she decided to come along with Rowan, to the place that said has been vanished from the earth, Hawaii, where people doesn't know the virus. In Hawaii, Rowan give her a book, their parents book about Chemical Garden that reveal the truth.
I'm wondering if there's any truth to this word I hear sometimes: God. People say it when they are frustrated or when they're sad. It implies that there is something, someone greater than us. Greater than the presidents we used to elect or kings and queens we used to throne.  
What makes Rowan believed Vaughn so much? what is the truth? Could they find the cure? Can Rhine find Gabriel too?
Finishing this book is actually quite disappointing to me. Why? Because I thought it would be awesome. I hate this book because there's no interesting romance here, Gabriel only appear in the last chapter of the book. It was like Lauren only make him to be wasted in this book. The story development is disappointing too for me. Glad I finished this book.
