This book grabbed my attention from the synopsis until about 50 pages in. She hit pretty hard on the world building and I felt it was immensely boring until the last 150 pages or so. At that point it really picked back up and I was interested again.

On a positive note, I LOVED the relationship between Morgan and Basil. (Even if the actual character development was lacking.) The idea of perfectly betrothed couples growing up together is just too adorable.

While overall I was disappointed with this book, I will be continuing with the series this fall. I am hoping that *spoiler* with Internment left behind we can really move along with the story and character development!

I'm a big Lauren DeStefano fan. The Chemical Garden series was so...twisted and amazing. Perfect Ruin didn't disappoint, but I suppose it could've been better.

Not bad…not bad at all.
