Fever by Lauren Destefano
Rhine and Gabriel have escaped the mansion, but danger is never far behind.
Running away brings Rhine and Gabriel right into a trap, in the form of a twisted carnival whose ringmistress keeps watch over a menagerie of girls. Just as Rhine uncovers what plans await her, her fortune turns again. With Gabriel at her side, Rhine travels through an environment as grim as the one she left a year ago - surroundings that mirror her own feelings of fear and hopelessness.
The two are determined to get to Manhattan, to relative safety with Rhine’s twin brother, Rowan. But the road there is long and perilous - and in a world where young women only live to age twenty and young men die at twenty-five, time is precious. Worse still, they can’t seem to elude Rhine’s father-in-law, Vaughn, who is determined to bring Rhine back to the mansion...by any means necessary.
In the 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.
The pick this week is one that Imyself can't believe I don't have yet! Read the first ages ago and loved it and somehow still don't have the sequel. I read the first with a friend and we were just talking about it the other day if maybe we should continue, cause I gave her the second book as a christmas gift.. a while ago and yet never got myself one. We pretty much said that maybe we need to read the first again cause it's been so long. We'll see. It really is one of those that I need and want to get on with!
