Hi welcome to the Fever tour, hosted by Around the World Arc Tours! I think it is so exciting when a bunch of people get together to talk about something they love: like this series. Welcome, and feel free to poke around a bit. I talk about what I am reading, and the crafts I make with my library kids.

Review copy: from tour
I was so excited to be a part of the tour for this book. It has been on my must read list since I closed the cover on Wither. I was very excited to find out what happened to Rhine and Gabriel. You can read my review of Wither here, in which I compared Rhine to Katniss and the overall world to The Handmaid’s Tale.
As always, I am completely impressed with DeStefano’s highly visual
descriptions of places and people. Smell is a large part of Fever as
well. I could see the book as a movie in my head.
Sadly, for me, Fever
did not enchant me the way the first book did. Now out in the world,
and free of the household of Vaughan and Linden, Rhine and Gabriel run
into many unsavory characters. This started to grate on me. I began to
wonder why they left in the first place! Many of the situations they
find themselves in are made better by the fact that Rhine is so
beautiful and I am the kind of reader that likes a character who relies on her wits more than her looks. I began to wonder how much worse this world would have been
for an average looking girl.
The world made sense in Wither, and here I was more than a little
confused. The landscape seems desolate and barren; yet, we run into
kettle chip delivery trucks. Some characters are living in extreme
poverty, and others seem to have a grocer down the street.
Overall, this feels like a waiting room for the real story, which I
expect will continue in the third book. I hope something of drastic
importance happened here and all will be revealed later.
foreshadowing for many of the story lines is heavy, but nothing really
happens. Rowan, we find out, may not be as wonderful as Rhine remembers
him. New labs for research of a cure are announced and mad bombers
So the wait for book three begins.....
