The future looks a lot like the past in this book set in a far future London that is basically a country unto itself. Fever has been raised by an order of scientists who believe in rationality above all else, and she's being sent out into the world beyond the order for the first time in this book. The world building is excellent in this tale, and I loved the inner conflict between rationality and normal teenaged emotion that Fever constantly battled through the story. But, I found the plot and most characters rather flat and a bit too simple/predictable. If there is a sequel I hope it works on making the characters and plot as full as the world it is set in.
