Fever by Lauren DeStefano

*Fever is the second book in the Chemical Garden trilogy, so the following review may contain spoilers for the previous book*

Fever is the second book in the Chemical Garden trilogy and whilst I enjoyed the first book, Wither, slightly more than this one, it was still a great read. 

The series is about a dystopian world where the men only live to 25 and the women 20, so they're forced to breed early in order to keep the population alive. Rhine is the main character and in the first book, she is captured and sold to a wealthy family to marry Linden and become one of his many wives. 

The second book follows on from this storyline, but going into more details would spoil the first book. I liked this book slightly less than the first, but I can't place why. Up until around three-quarters of the way through, my interest wasn't held that well, but I'm dedicated to finishing the series so I pushed on. At the end, I was hooked again. The ending was tense and I can't wait to start the third book to find out what happens. I would highly recommend starting this series.
