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.
