“Fervor” by Chantal Boudreau is a Must Read!


 Sam wakes to the sound of millions of voices screaming in pain and fear. His own should be among them, but he can’t hear. The world has changed overnight. The adults, who cared for the children, are gone. There are only the Bigs and Littles left. Sam is a Little.

The children find themselves split into house families – six in all. Sam’s house consists of Francis—the Teller, Sarah (another Little) – the Fixer, Fiona (a Big) – the Keeper, Nathan – the Watcher, Sam – the Finder, and Royce – the Control. Each of the first five themselves connected telepathically, but each has lost one of their five senses. Only Royce is unaffected.

“Fervor” is a compelling YA fantasy/ sci-fi novel. I found it captivating. The children find themselves in an untenable situation and learn to function as well as they can given their circumstances. Some fair better than others.

The characters are interesting and diverse. Their alliances and interactions clearly depicted. The plot is compelling, urging readers to continue and leaves enough questions hanging to make the reader long for a sequel. Although written for YA, the novel is a great read for adults. I highly recommend “Fervor”.
