I love what Lauren does with words, and what she's not afraid to do with them. Though at times this was somewhat difficult to get through due to its pacing, I appreciate the furtherance of the setting. (You can almost compare the plot flow between Wither and Fever to be similar to that of Matched/Crossed.) That said, there's not enough information for me. I still don't know why this is happening, and that lack makes it difficult for me suspend disbelief as much as I would like.Longer review pending.
