FeverBook - 2012
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. In this sequel to Lauren DeStefano's harrowing Wither , Rhine must decide if freedom is worth the price--now that she has more to lose than ever.

SummaryAdd a Summary
I was extremely conflicted regarding the Chemical Garden's second installment, FEVER. While I loved WITHER and was enthralled by Rhine's journey and what that might entail after she left the mansion in the end of the first book, I found the events immediately following that in FEVER to be less purposeful than I was hoping for. My issues with this installment can be summed up in three main points:
1. Rhine spends at least a third of the book half-asleep or drugged. 2. Character development was rather weak. 3. Lastly, but most importantly, when I finished the novel, I felt as though I probably could have skipped the first three quarters of it and it wouldn't have made much difference to my understanding of the story. Although I admit that the second installment of the Chemical Garden series left me somewhat disgruntled and disappointed, I did still enjoy reading FEVER and fully intend to read the third book and discover how DeStefano intends to resolve Rhine's journey.
