In Wild Rain and the novella "The Awakening," Christine Feehan created an exotic, sensual race-the Leopard People. Fever brings the two stories together for the first time in one volume, a one-way ticket to a dizzying new world of desire.

In "The Awakening," a beautiful naturalist's dream comes true-to live among the feral jungle creatures. But an untamed, irresistible beast of another sort inspires her to explore her own wild side.

Wild Rain's Rachel Lospostros has escaped from a faceless assassin and found sanctuary thousands of miles from home, under the towering jungle canopy. In this world teeming with unusual creatures she encounters Rio, a native of the forest imbued with a fierce prowess, and possessed of secrets of his own. When Rio unleashes the secret animal instincts that course through his blood, Rachel must decide if he is something to be feared-or desired.

Of all the modern thrillers I have read, Robin Cook was the one I enjoyed. This is because of in most of the book he left the end to the reader's imagination. My favorite by him is Toxin. Fever is not so good.read more

I normally thoroughly enjoy Robin Cooks books but not this one I'm afraid. I found the characters unreal and the situation of Charles Martel 'kidnapping' his daughter in order to treat the child himself unbelievable. As always, the author's medical knowledge and insights are superb but everything that happens to the poor Martel family including the 'stake-out' by the police outside their home is too far-fetched to be taken seriously.read more

***** "The Awakening." This is the first of her leopard stories, and I'm still impressed by her lush prose. You can just sink into the jungle in this one. There might have been problems with the story--I don't know, because I was completely distracted by the descriptions, and you know me & descriptions--normally I just skim them. Feehan's are a notable exception. For that, I can forgive her any number of cliches. ****½ Wild Rain. Still excellent, but in the longer format, there's something about the dialogue that bugs me. I tried really hard to figure out what it was. Partly, I think it's that everyone sounds alike. The non-dialogue writing just flows beautifully, but it's like someone else wrote the dialogue. Everyone speaks in simple, complete, declarative sentences with no transitions--kind of the way Stephen King writes, or those horrible abridged Disney storybooks I bought a set of for my kids when they were little and could never bring myself to read to them because the writing clunked so badly. Anyway. It's rather disorienting for me, to read every word of the descriptions and skim the dialogue, instead of the other way around. :) Good story, though--tortured hero, strong heroine, danger, intrigue, and some characters I hope will show up in later books.read more

I have read every book in 3 different Christine Feehan series, and she has yet to disappoint. The "Leopard People" series is every bit as good as her other series'. Feehan is a master of creating new and interesting characters and societies. In Fever, we discover the race of shape-shifting leopard-people, and learn all about their history and customs. The details are intricate and Feehan's descriptions of life within the rainforests of Borneo is simply breathtaking. The leopard-people stories follow the same basic format as Feehan's other series': Byronic hero meets his match in a spunky, sexy heroine. But let's face it, Feehan is an expert at writing these types of stories, and has great skill in making each of her stories fresh and new. Fever offers captivating and entertaining stories, guaranteed to beguile and enthrall the reader. I am very excited to continue reading this series and to find out more about the leopard-people.read more

Paper thin plots. Two stories, one quite short and another longer story. It's all about were-cats who once they meet their mate are completely overtaken by love and lust for these people. Readable but not the most exciting book I've ever read. Quite a lot of sex in it and sometimes it feels like the sex is tacked in and I would question sometimes the way in which the men are more in control sometimes and the lack of consent and freedom the women appear to have.read more
