Cover Talk: The Fever Cover Reveal!

So, one of my favorite dystopia releases this year was Wither by Lauren DeStefano. (You can read my review here.) It was gorgeous, dark, thrilling, and a bit horrifying in some ways, and it reminded me of Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale. I've been eagerly awaiting the second book in the trilogy, Fever, and the full cover has finally been revealed!


I have to admit, I am so intrigued. The style is very similar to the Wither cover, in what the model is wearing, what she looks like, and her pose, but the contents of what appear to be a children's room fascinate me. I can't wait to see how it all plays into the book! I'm sure there's some significance to it, what with the way children are such a commodity in this series, and with how Wither ended. I can't wait to read about it!

What do you all think?

I think the girl looks like she is either on drugs or extremely sick :S I like the overall cover, but the girl doesn't look healthy at all :/

One of my favorites of the year too. I cannot wait for FEVER!

I really like Wither as well and I was reading on the author's blog that the model for this one is the same from Wither! I think that's really cool and consistent :)

Taschima: I think that's probably the point...these people waste away with a sickness at ages 20 and 25, and it's not a quick death.

When I first saw this cover I almost fainted! So gorgeous, and they used the same style as Wither, which I love. The model's pose is very powerful, too.

It's SO intriguing. The fact that you have to look at that girl twice, that you wonder about her, is my favorite part, and I think it works so well as a follow-up to Wither. The Wither cover is just straight up gorgeous, and I think this deconstructs that in a way that's still absolutely pretty. It strips down the girl and surrounds her with all this stuff and it just...breaks the fantasy of the first one. While still being this absolutely beautiful, intriguing cover.

I love how the covers all have elements of the story in them, things that at first are just part of teh picture but once you read teh story you start to see them. Like on the cover of wither the caged bird kind of made me think about the wives, the beakers, etc to me sybolized Vaughn and his experiments.

@taschima: I read the summary on goodreads and it says "rhine is crippled with illness" so I suppose that's the reason.

This cover got some negative reviews but I think it's pretty in its own intriguing way,
