Gratis frakt inom Sverige över 159 kr för privatpersoner.An epic drama from an acclaimed internationally bestselling author--a powerful story of love, betrayal, and survival in a world devastated by a fatal virus known simply as "the Fever." Nico Storm and his father, Willem, drive a truck filled with essential supplies through a desolate land. A devastating virus has swept over the planet, and they are among its few survivors. Nico although he is still only a boy is gifted with superb marksmanship and a cool head, while Willem is a thinker and a leader with a vision for a new community of survivors that they will rebuild from the ruins. And so Amanzi is founded, drawing Storm's "homeless and tempest-tost," including Sofia Bergman, the most beautiful girl Nico has ever seen. As the community grows, so do the challenges they face not just from the attacks of biker brigands, but also from within. In this new world, Nico undergoes an extraordinary rite of passage, testing his loyalty to the limits until he faces the greatest rupture of all the murder of the person he loves most. Propulsively readable, Fever is a gripping epic of humanity striving for a noble vision against its basest impulses.

Praise for Fever An Indie Next Selection An Amazon Best Book of the Month (Science Fiction and Fantasy) "Multiple viewpoints and the non-linear nature of the passage of time disorient the reader so we become ensnared and terrified inside the unfolding drama, and sucked into this ravaged world which Meyer crafts with the precision of a master storyteller . . . Deon Meyer should be applauded for this brutal, unflinching tale of the excesses of humanity coiled like a python around a coming-of-age tale; one that makes one think deeply about the human condition as it entertains as well as warns of the dangers ahead, for our dark-side may be our undoing, as well as our salvation--for we are all feral--given the right context."--Deadly Pleasures Mystery Magazine "Meyer neatly integrates a whodunit into a sophisticated postapocalyptic thriller set in South Africa . . . Meyer effectively teases his ultimate reveal. Thoughtful character development complements the clever storytelling."--Publishers Weekly (starred review) "A thought-provoking, postapocalyptic examination of the human condition . . . With its stunning final revelation, this is a remarkable literary achievement."--Booklist "[A] sweeping epic about a young Afrikaner boy's survival in a post-apocalyptic South Africa . . . The book is part ecological warning, part thriller . . . part adventure saga . . and part coming-of-age story . . . Gripping moments and a haunting atmosphere."--Kirkus Reviews "Tense, intriguing, and surprising, this thriller is a solid choice for readers who enjoy well-researched and detailed survival stories."--Karin Thogersen, Library Journal "Reminiscent of The Stand and The Passage. Great stuff."--Stephen King "I have been a Deon Meyer fan for some time. Fever is an interesting departure for him . . . and I loved it."--Thomas Perry "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 "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 "Emotional and atmospheric . . . There are shades of Cormac McCarthy's superb The Road, but Fever grips even more."--Times (UK) "Compelling, action-packed and fraught with emotion. At its heart it is a powerful exploration of humanity at its best and worst and bears favourable comparison with landmarks of the genre such as Stephen King's The Stand and Cormac McCarthy's The Road. Simply stunning."--Daily Express (UK) "Deon Meyer should be applauded for this brutal, unflinching tale of the excesses of humanity coiled like a python around a coming-of-age tale; one that makes one think deeply about the human condition as it entertains as well as warns of the dangers ahead . . . Miss this insightful thriller at your peril, because as crime thrillers go, this is the big summer read of 2017."--Shotsmag (UK) "Moving and gripping."--South China Morning Post
