This is the story of my life.
Nico Storm and his father drive across a desolate South Africa, constantly alert for feral dogs, motorcycle gangs, and nuclear contamination. They are among the few survivors of a virus that has killed most of the world's population. Young as he is, Nico realises that his superb marksmanship and cool head mean he is destined to be his father's protector.
But Willem Storm, though not a fighter, is a man with a vision. He is searching for a place that can become a refuge, a beacon of light and hope in a dark and hopeless world, a community that survivors will rebuild from the ruins. And so Amanzi is born.
Fever is the epic, searing story of a group of people determined to carve a city out of chaos.
Reviews, News & Interviews:
Reminiscent of The Stand and The Passage.Great stuff. Stephen King
Fever bears comparison with landmarks in the genre such as The Stand...The novel explores humanity at its best and worst; the crushing loss of civilisation with everything that means for the structure of society...This great book asks us to reflect on our own hidden natures-how would we react if the world we knew came to an end tomorrow?. Vaseem Khan, author of The Unexpected Inheritance of Inspector Chopra
Fever is one of the best books of the year. Deon Meyer is a masterful writer and has created a stunning epic that brims with emotion. The mystery thrills, and action kept me riveted to every page.Highly recommended. Adam Hamdy, author of Pendulum
