You’ll love Fever Crumb by Philip Reeve if you’re a JK Rowling or Philip Pullman fan. Why? Because it’s a fast-paced, readable fantasy adventure centered around a post-apocalyptic world where cities take on the features of a greedy pack of humans, thriving on stripping smaller communities of all their resources.


The Story

In Fever Crumb, London, England, is still a “static” (meaning normal) city. In it lives a “normal” teenager, an orphan, who’s been raised by The Order Of Engineers - a group that doesn’t believe in dealing with emotions, only logical, rational facts. This story is about this particular teen’s important role in saving the future of the city.


The teen’s name is Fever Crumb, and at the beginning of the book she’s sent to assist an archaeologist on a top-secret project that he’s working on. While doing so, Fever discovers a dark secret about her own past, her heritage and her entire species. As it turns out, she’s being hunted down by some of the most ruthless creatures imaginable.


The Style

Mysterious, dark and gloomy are three perfect words to describe the tone and style of this book. If that tone of writing sounds right up your alley, then Fever Crumb is definitely the book for you!
