Lauren DeStefano’s Wither was called a “thought-provoking debut, reminiscent of The Handmaid’s Tale” by Kirkus Reviews. Its chilling follow-up, the New York Times bestseller, Fever, continues sixteen-year-old Rhine’s tale, set in a dark future in which men and women die by age twenty-five and young girls are sold into marriage to keep the population growing.

Rhine has finally escaped her marriage. But what hope can the outside world offer when death looms ever closer? Rhine and Gabriel have escaped the mansion, but they’re still in danger. Outside, they find a world even more disquieting than the one they left behind. Determined to get to Manhattan and find Rhine’s twin brother, Rowan, the two press forward, amid threats of being captured again—or worse.

The road they are on is long and perilous—and in a world where young women only live to age twenty and men die at age twenty-five, time is precious. Rhine must decide if freedom is worth the price—now that she has more to lose than ever.

    " What can I say? In the end, I loved this novel as much as the first one in the series. I do admit being confused at times over where the author was going with - SPOILER - Rhine's mysterious sickness - it seemed to come out of nowhere and to lead to nowhere, taking up what seemed to be an unnecessarily long time in the plot-line. At first, I thought that it was just Rhine self-indulging in her sorrow, but before too long it became clear that it was something much more sinister and terrifying. Be prepared, this installment is probably even more somber and sad than the first one. Toward the end, it became purely terrifying. Yet Rhine remained as real and vibrant of a character as she ever was, one spot of light in the gruesome world she inhabits. You root for her, and you do it with all your heart. I applaud the author for dealing with such dark themes, never relenting and sugaring things up. I can honestly say that I cannot wait to find out how Rhine's story turns out in the next book. I can only hope that she will have her triumphs, however small. "
