Fever - Lauren DeStefano
In the follow-up to Wither, Rhine and Gabriel find themselves on a beach. They aren't sure how far they've made it from Housemaster Vaughn. After seeing a circle of lights, they decide to follow them. Their lives are changed by this. Rhine and Gabriel are forced to be the new attraction at this carnival. The only thing that keeps the two of them going is Rhine's determination to find her brother, Rowan. They also must make sure not to be found by Vaughn. I absolutely loved this book. It was dark and had me on an emotional roller coaster. Vaughn is the perfect bad guy. I despise him. It seems like his hold on Rhine will never by broken. I don't think I've ever met a character as sinister or devoid of emotion. Rhine and Gabriel go through so many trials that Rhine begins to wonder if leaving the mansion was a good idea. Gabriel didn't realize how dangerous the world outside of the walls he was brought up in. Even though they've gone through hell during their escape he doesn't regret it. He is happy that he left with Rhine. I think my favorite part of the book is at the end. I'm not going to give away any spoilers with who or what the situation is, but it is intense! This series is definitely one of my top reads, and I'm sure you'll enjoy it just as much. 5/5 stars :D
