No need for a synopsis with this one...I think enough of you have read it to know what it's about! Just a quickie review.
Picking up right about where Wither left off, I was able to fall right back into Rhine's story and her flight with Gabriel. I found the portions of the plot taking place at the carnival exciting and up to par with the emotional level of Wither, but after that, I felt the rest of the book fell a bit short. The story felt choppy and rushed and almost as if the author had to force the plot along to get to book 3. I almost want to compare it to Mockingjay, where Katniss was constantly injured or in the hospital or sick. That was the entire book and Fever felt somewhat like that. Not a whole lot happening after the carnival.
Though Rhine is still a great character and I'm super intrigued by what will happen to her and the story, I was slightly disappointed in this middle book. I'm crossing my fingers that the third will rev things back up and I'll be flying through the pages like I was while reading Wither.
A quick note on the cover...I am SO not a fan. I loved the cover of Wither, but this one is just weird. I feel totally horrible for the cover model, wondering how long the photographer made her stay in that awful position and the styling just gave a strange vibe, rather than the subtle beauty that Wither's cover conveyed. We'll see what book 3 brings!
