One of the aspects I loved most about WITHER was the atmospheric writing - and that certainly continues in FEVER. Almost immediately, Rhine and Gabriel are swept up into a new predicament, one that's like jumping out of the frying pan (Linden's house) into the fire (a circus brothel). There's a funhouse mirror/dream-like vibe to this whole first section that fits so well to the circumstances. (And btw the cover is an absolutely perfect reflection of it too.)
I wondered how successful Rhine's flight could be, and the twists in FEVER were supremely clever - setting the stage for what is sure to be an explosive showdown in book 3.
