Where and how this sequel continues Fever Crumb seemed to leave all that happened in the first book behind. Fever is now 16 and the technical director of a theater on a barge using her knowledge of technology to bring lights to the production. They are in the city of Mayda where all technology is banned. She meets a young man, Arlo, who is trying to build a flying machine and is so the target of the powerful in the town and those in London she wanted to escape. The book can stand alone because so little relates to what happened in the first, which has advantages, and the connection eventually happens, but I was expecting something different so it took me a while to just settle in and focus on what was happening. Good for middle school and can be recommended to anyone.
