A Fever, a Flight, and a Fight for the World is a compelling African adventure story that will enthrall eight- to fourteen-year-old youth who love adventure and learning about faraway places. In the exciting fourth and final book in the Rwendigo Tales Series, readers will be inspired by ordinary people who make the extraordinary choice to stand against great evil. Written by J. A. Myhre, a doctor living and working in East Africa, this adventure story teaches readers of all ages important truths about justice, overcoming evil, and the courage to make a difference.

In A Fever, a Flight, and a Fight for the World, A doctor volunteering in a village plagued by a mysterious virus wakes up on a deserted island injured, sick, and near death—with no memory of how he got there. As Dr. Mujuni slowly regains his memory, he pieces together the horrific reality of what happened to the community and learns just how far the government-backed officials will go to silence all knowledge of the epidemic. As a young girl named Nyakato, the only other survivor, nurses him back to health, Dr. Mujuni must devise a plan to make their way back to the mainland, but what they discover on their journey is even more dangerous than they could ever imagine.

Through a series of perils and hazards, Mujuni and Nyakato must fight for more than their own lives, learning the true cost of overcoming evil and greed. Through their adventures, readers will find hope in the midst of great loss, triumph and courage in the midst of death and injustice, and love in the midst of darkness.

Marty Machowski, Pastor; author of Long Story Short: Ten-Minute Devotions to Draw Your Family to God, Parenting First Aid, The Ology, and other gospel-rich resources for church and home

“Fans of The Rwendigo Tales will not be disappointed in this latest fictional adventure. J. A. Myhre writes masterfully with a bigger picture in mind of doctors and people of faith who give their lives for justice and mercy in the midst of contemporary African culture. The book is a profoundly unique contribution to children’s literature.”
Robert A. Fryling, Author of The Leadership Ellipse: Shaping How You Lead by Who You Are

Rose Marie Miller, Author of From Fear to Freedom and Nothing Is Impossible with God

“Don’t start this book just before bed. It is addicting and I kept telling myself, ‘just one more chapter before bed’ until I finished. Educational, intriguing, suspenseful, and fun for all ages.”

Engaging, Wholesome, & Age-Appropriate

What is it like to grow up in Africa? That's what J.A. Myhre sought to depict for her children through her Rwendigo Tales. Originally written as Christmas presents, but now, a gift shared with a wider audience, Myhre shows rather than tells her readers what it is like to grow up in Africa. Her experience as a doctor who has served with Serge in East Africa for over two decades uniquely qualifies her to present the distinct challenges of those living in the African jungles. A Fever, a Flight, and A Fight for the World is the fourth book in her series, aimed at youth, which takes us on a journey with "A doctor volunteering in a village plagued by a mysterious virus...and a young girl...the only other survivor..." who find themselves on a deserted island. Each chapter leaves you wanting to read the next.

Like the previous title in this series, I thoroughly enjoyed A Fever, a Flight, and A Fight for the World over an afternoon and evening. Although it doesn't expressly tell how the Gospel makes a difference in the character's lives or how the Gospel gives hope to those facing sin and suffering, it lends itself well to that discussion. Myhre's writing continues to be engaging, wholesome, and age-appropriate while avoiding over-simplicity in vocabulary, plot, and conflict and is a thought-provoking introduction to life in Africa.

Great Stories

I don’t want the series to end! Hoping Jennifer has grand-babies to write for in the coming years!

I am curious how much international readers will sense in the Rwendingo the truth of life in East Africa, I hope they glean the significance.

The stories are created, but the atmosphere is real. . .the sense of a true fight for good against evil, life over death, the systemic oppression by those in power, the faithful who become ordinary heroes thanks to courage and precious help offered at the right time.

My girls are 10 and 13, the books are perfect for them, but great for me too!!

My Review

In all honesty, I have not read the first 3 books of this series. So, I can only base my opinion of this book and not of the whole series.

This book is more geared towards pre-teens. It has adventure, suspense, and at times can be a bit intense, it is a tale of good vs evil, although fictional, the story takes place in Africa, which you will references.

Teens need to be aware that we are living in dangerous times, and that the world is not a safe place, there is good but they must also realize there is evil at the extreme. And what is a bit terrifying is that this book could become a reality in regards to biological warfare.

It's a great read, and just from reading this book I can almost guarantee it's predecessors are just as exciting and intriguing as the last of it's series.
