Fever Crumb by 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. Fever has also been singled out by city-dwellers who declare her part Scriven. The Scriveners, not human, ruled the city some years ago but were hunted down and killed in a victorious uprising by the people. If there are any remaining Scriven, they are to be eliminated. All Fever knows is what she's been told: that she is an orphan. Is Fever a Scriven? Whose memories does she hold? Is the mystery of Fever, adopted daughter of Dr. Crumb, the key to the secret that lies at the heart of London? Haunting, arresting, and astonishingly original, Fever Crumb will delight and surprise readers at every fast-paced, breathless turn."
*taking form info of the book At goodreads*


Dr. crumb who is a Member of The order of engineers. Found Fever as an infant,He kept her as it was the rational thing to raise her. Fever is the only Girl that has every stay/in the Order Engineers. Dr. Crumb raise Fever to be rational, and grew her into a Engineer.

The Story line really kicks off when she is asked To assist a Archeologist (Kit solent) on his findings. Fever Soon will begin to learn things about her and the past.
Her life will turn around.

Fever Kind of got on my nerves a little with the whole rational thing. She reminds me of a teen girl who just nags and just say, no i can't do this, i can't do that, Just because someone told her it was wrong to feel, grow hair,etc, because its Not rational to do so. Though you can't help but really feel for her. I fell in love with her as she want along in the story.

I have never heard of Phillip Reeve before, until i found Fever Crumb.
With the Reading of Fever crumb i got a thrill, that was unbelievable, with it's writing, and characters and the story line.That I want to see what else Phillip Reeve as to offer me. Witch i sure will be just as great.

I really enjoy this book a lot.

I can't wait to read A Web of Air by Reeve , sequel to Fever Crumb. Want to to hear more about Fever!
