Publisher's Summary

Fever Crumb has been adopted and raised by Dr. Crumb, a member of the Order of Engineers, where she serves as an apprentice. At a time when women are not seen as reasonable creatures, Fever is an anomaly, the only girl to serve in the Order. Soon, though, she must say good-bye to Dr. Crumb to assist archaeologist Kit Solent with a top secret project.

The assignment involves a mysterious room that once belonged to Auric Godshawk, the last of the Scriven overlords, and Fever must help unlock it. The Scriven, not human, ruled the city some years ago but were hunted down and killed in a victorious uprising by the people.

As Fever’s work begins, she is plagued by memories that are not her own, and Kit seems to have a particular interest in finding out what they are. All Fever knows is what she’s been told: She is an orphan. But whose memories does she hold? And why are there people chasing her, intent on eliminating her? Is Fever the key to unlocking the terrible secret of the past?

Haunting, arresting, and astonishingly original, Fever Crumb will delight and surprise listeners at every fast-paced, breathless turn.

    "A Great Listen..."

    I'm surprised no one reviewed this yet, I've had this book on my wishlist for a few months (dunno how it got there in the first place) and 2 weeks ago I decided why not and I'm glad I did...

    I bought this book after I just finished "Insurgent", the second book of "Divergent", and I must say I liked Fever Crumb alot more than both those books and even Hunger Games, what I like most about it is the no cheesy love scenes and emotional complications that spam half of the book, I grew very fond of Fever and can't wait to read more of her in the second book "A Web of Air" and the yet to be released third.

    If you liked young adult books like Maze Runner and Hunger Games, you'll likely enjoy this book too, Reeve has done an awesome job in both writing and narrating this book.

    "A fresh approach"

    An enjoyable change from the usual fantasy fare. Darkly immersive and compelling, it left me wanting more.

    "Continue the Story..."

    Kept my kids (17, 14 and 10) entertained during a long car journey - what more can you say?
