--Beth Revis, NY Times Bestselling Author of Across the Universe

DeStefano’s rich use of language helps set this dystopian tale apart.
--Booklist

By Sofie TOP 500 REVIEWER on March 8 2012
Format: Hardcover
The raw disgust, hatred, and loathing towards the male race is evident in this book. Nearly every single male character (aside from Gabriel, Jared, and Silas) are depicted as violent, psychotic, misogynistic, and even rapists. Rhine makes it very clear that being a girl in this world is a terrifying thing, and more than ever she is being treated as an object in this book. Like you would treat a lamp, or a plate. As a girl, I found this book to be a very strong reflection of how women are treated in developing countries, but even I was amazed at how vile all the males were. SPOILER ALERT: We never get to meet Rowan, but from what we learn about him, he suffers from severe temper issues and is prone to destructive violence and is extraordinarily territorial. END SPOILER ALERT. This book is written so beautifully, so eloquently, so detailed, and so disturbing. The author is truly a great writer, and she doesn't shy away from explaining horrific, gruesome scenes (which are plenty in this novel.) We get to meet so many new characters, many of which are terrifying, others of which are quite likeable and interesting.

I can't wait to see what happens to Rhine, Gabriel, Rowan, Cecily, Lilac, Maddie, and Linden.

WARNING: this book is far more graphic, far more gruesome, and far more violent than the first novel. There were many cringe-worthy scenes in this.

Fair warning: this review has some spoilers for Wither, but doesn't contain spoilers for Fever.

I loved Wither for it's twisted and rather disturbing storyline, and I was hoping that Fever would continue in a similar way. Fever picks up right where Wither left off; and in typical dystopian trilogy fashion, it has what I call "middle book syndrome" (this isn't a necessarily a bad thing) where it follows the journey of Rhine once she's escaped.

And I was SO excited and completely, 100% captiviated by Fever and it fulfilled all of my hopes and expectations for it- making another fabulous read from Lauren DeStefano!

Reasons to Read:

1.A world outside the Mansion:
Since Rhine's no longer trapped in the Mansion, we finally get a chance to see (along with her) exactly what the world outside the Mansion is like; there's definitely a lot more world building in that aspect. And it is so disturbingly freaky, and just as twisted as the rest of the plot has been!

2.Literal shivers:
There is something so perversed about the world in which Wither takes place, and I honestly find so many of the events taking place, supposedly normal and rather routine occurences, to be constantly shocking. And Lauren writes in such a way, that the impact of this seems almost greater.

3.Character development:
We really get to see a couple characters significantly grow and change throughout Fever, rather than just being introduced to them as was the case with Wither. Rhine and Gabriel don't find that everything works out easily for them, and they're often put in difficult situations... and the question is how they'll adapt to those circumstances. But we definitely get to see new sides to them, along with some new characters.

Format: Hardcover
I must admit that it took me a really long time to get into this book (I struggled to get through the first sixty or so pages of this book, I could literally only read ten or so pages a day, and then after having read the first sixty pages I set the book down for about a month or two before picking it up once again)- something that is quite unheard of for me. The main reason why I struggled through the first bit of this book was because I found that it didn't jive whatsoever with the world that we had come to know and love (errrrr.... perhaps "love" is not the best word to use when describing a world in which young girls are forced into polygamous marriages and die in their early twenties ;) ) in "Wither", the first book in the series. However, once I was able to get past the first sixty pages, I found that the book was a lot more manageable and I was able to read the remainder of the book within a couple of hours.

There were a number of things that irked me about "Wither" (for instance, did Rhine and Gabriel technically have a relationship, Rhine didn't give Gabriel a choice in running away, etc.) and I very much appreciated and was quite surprised by the fact that this book addressed almost every single problem that I had had (it gave me a new found respect of everything that went down in "Wither", not to mention a different perspective). Furthermore, I did quite like a few of the newly introduced characters (Maddie especially) and the reintroduction of old characters (old characters who I frankly didn't think we would ever see again).

That being said, while I quite liked all of my burning questions being answered in this book and the introduction of new characters, I was overall quite a bit disappointed by the plot of this book overall.

Format: Hardcover
Escaping Vaughn and his crazy experiment and finding her twin brother has been Rhine's goal for months and now that she succeeded with the first phase, it's time for part two! Thankfully, Rhine isn't alone. Gabriel, her faithful friend, is with her on this insane journey and his help will be more than needed to face all the challenges awaiting them along the road. They are out of the mansion, but they're not safe yet, and are they really out of Vaughn's reach?

Let me start by saying that this was one depressing book. If you haven't read Wither, the first book in the series, you need to know that the world Lauren created is harsh. A war destroyed the world as we know it, and only the American continent remains. Humanity tempered with things they shouldn't have: their DNA. The result? Every kid is born with an expiration date. At age 25 for boys, and 20 for girls, they are gripped by a terrible incurable virus. To counter the effect, girls are kidnapped and sold to become wives in polygamous marriages and bear as many child as possible.

In Fever, Rhine and Gabriel find themselves on the road and the world is in even worst shape than Rhine remembered. Kidnapping, prostitution, rape, murder, famine, drugs are only a few elements our pair of heroes will face and it's not pretty. I said it before, it's a very harsh and depressing picture and I would avoid reading Fever if you are already down. DeStefano really mastered the gloomy atmosphere and it's really hard to stay impassive to the events portrayed. I have to tip her my metaphorical hat because she fearlessly addressed some very controversial subjects, and made it work.

I had a love/hate relationship with Rhine this time around. She was strong and determined at times, yet weak and weepy at others.
