Fever Crumb

Fever Crumb

"This is the book I give anyone who's read and liked The Hunger Games or the Leviathan trilogy, or who likes a little steampunk in their post-apocalyptic world. 

In the far-flung wake of global devastation, mosaic floors are made out of keyboard tiles, puzzled scholars study the ancient Hari Potter cult, and London sits poised for (yet another) revolution. There are rumors that the ScrivenLondon's super smart, super scary former overlordsare returning. And fourteen-year-old Fever Crumb suddenly starts remembering events that took place long before she was born... 

My favorite thing about this book is that Fever was raised by ultra-logical Engineers, who are allergic to things like hair and emotions and fun. This makes her hilariously deadpan in the face of shenaniganry. Of which, let me tell you, there is plenty. 

My kind of heroine; my kind of story. Yours too? Yes."

A stunning new novel by master storyteller Philip Reeve.

Fever Crumb is a girl who has been adopted and raised by Dr. Crumb, a member of the order of Engineers, where she serves as apprentice. In a time and place where women are not seen as reasonable creatures, Fever is an anomaly, the only female to serve in the order. Soon though, she must say goodbye to Dr. Crumb-nearly the only person she's ever known-to assist archeologist Kit Solent on a top-secret project. As her work begins, Fever is plagued by memories that are not her own and Kit seems to have a particular interest in finding out what they are.
