Summary ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ Victoria Lee

In the former United States sixteen year old Noam Álvaro wakes up in a hospital bed the sole survivor of the viral magic that killed his family and made him a technopath His ability to control technology attracts the attention of the minister of defense and thrusts him into the magical elite of the nat The thing about The Fever King is that it s about so many different things that it s just truly indescribableIt s about a virus that has taken so many innocent lives yet has become a magical blessing for those who survive it It s about moral ambiguity and deciding what s right and wrong for you but also for everyone else It s about identity and trauma and finding your place in a world that is always changingIt s about a boy named Noam and a boy named Dara and what they must do to keep living in a world that demands from them but has only given them painAnd it s also about the horrendously achingly painfully slow slowburn romance that blossoms between them but that s not the point The void from earlier was back yawning wide in Noam s chest Dara felt it too he thought Dara might not have lost his family but he had that same hole inside him They matched I think the most striking aspect of this book though is not its captivating narrative or its impressive writing style or its intriguing setting rather its intricate carefully written portrayal of the complexities of its charactersAll of these characters are arguably morally ambiguous They are figuring out where they belong in the world or in some cases have already decided it and are acting upon it They ve all faced trauma personal and intergenerational and it s affected them all differently The nuance that which this pain is written with is done so carefully Noam a bisexual biracial Latinxwhite Jewish teenage boy who survived a virus that took his family friends and fellow refugees and gained the magic of technopathy from it an activist for immigrant rights and a sweet soft boy who is too strong for his own good Dara a gay Jewish POC celebrity son of the minister who is as much of a jerk as he is alluringly mysterious also my son who has been through too much suffering and deserves some semblance of happiness Lehrer the ueer Jewish minister of Carolinia who s been alive for who knows how long who I secretly or not so secretly hateMore so the gay slowburn romance that blooms in this book is just absolutely thrilling Thrilling in the please kiss already and why does this hurt so much and I have never been terrified for two people waystunning art by bbonsbonssWhile I will admit that I took some time to get into this book once I was immersed in it I was immersed The story moves at just the right pace keeping you on your toes and anxious for what s to come but still keeping you engaged in the present It only helps that Noam s voice is such a delightful perspective to read fromNot only is this an enjoyable exciting story to read however it also tackles important issues such as immigration Some readers have been angered by the inclusion of this as well as the simple existence of ueerness and believe the book would be better without those subjects But I would argue that this book is stronger with these political themes and the existence of these characters are inherently political because of the people who don t want them to be includedNevertheless I found the discussion extremely important and well written and it did not take away or distract from the narrative only added to it As a ueer child of immigrant parents I related deeply to the threads of ueerness and immigration woven throughout the book and I am grateful they were included That was the whole point Governments didn t have to listen to the people until the people made it hurt not to listen uite honestly this whole book hurts because it seems like seeds of pain are sowed in just when you think you ll be okay but the ending of this book for sure overpowers it all I won t say much because I think you all deserve to suffer like I did but I will say this it is shocking it is the ending you wish wasn t perfect but kind of is and it will absolutely destroy youOn that note my initial reaction upon finishing this book was hello 911 yes I d like to report this book for making me want to kashoot myself Frankly I think that reaction still stands There are so many things this book makes me want to kashoot myself over from the characters to the romance to the discussion of political issues but I would still want to read it all over againIf it isn t obvious I truly adored this book and found it not only powerful but enrapturing and enjoyable as well and the amount of appreciation I have for it has no end If you re looking for gay moral greyness and a soul crushing heartbreaking book this one s for youPS I highly recommend giving this author interview a read as well as the extremely heartfelt letter the author wrote about why she wrote The Fever King and how her

Victoria Lee ´ 6 Review

Secretly planning to use it against the government But then he meets the minister’s son cruel dangerous and achingly beautiful and the way forward becomes less clearCaught between his purpose and his heart Noam must decide who he can trust and how far he’s willing to go in pursuit of the greater go Was this completely predictable YesDid I care Not even a little and that should tell you something about how well written these characters are The Fever King is the first book in a futuristic sci fantasy series set in what is left of the once United States It follows a main character who is bisexual Jewish and Colombian and it features a main mm romance It s a story that talks about a lot of interesting themes and I m going to get to that in this review but first I want to talk about what this book made me think about predictabilityI think we often use this was predictable to mean that a book was boring and banal And I mean that s often true especially for books in which predictability isn t the point I wouldn t complain about predictability in the romance genre you know but sometimes it s just notSometimes a book is predictable because it took the path you wanted it to have because it developed in a way that made sense because the author didn t decide to sacrifice a perfectly solid and entertaining storyline for the sake of shock value And as long as the main character isn t naive or unobservant for no reason and here that wasn t the case I m not going to penalize a book for doing what it should have doneAnd did this book go there The Fever King is set in a country with an internal refugee crisis and an external persecution problem as it s the only state in the world that doesn t imprison people who have magical powers and it s a story about how people react to personal and generational trauma a story about whether and how much the goal can justify the meansIf you know anything about me you should also know that this last sentence is probably the thing I like to see the most in fiction Why Because it makes for terrific villainous characters And this was no exception I can t tell you as much as I d like about the character I m talking about because while it s a very predictable storyline I d rather write a spoiler free review but I found him really fascinating and awful and isn t that the best combination As usual the characters that make me think I want to know and please die like right now are the ones I feel strongly aboutI also really liked the main character Noam He s the son of immigrants and after he survived a deadly virus and became a witchling he s thrust in a world that represents everything he has always hated and to see how conflicted he is how he s desperately looking for allies and at the same time kind of wants to go back He was a really interesting character to read aboutAnd his romance with Dara The way they start out suspicious of each other but grow closer anyway and still don t really know what s the right thing to do I have a lot of feelings it must be that I just really like reading about confused young gays who are trying their best to do the right thingThe other side characters weren t that developed but seeing how marginal most of them were it wasn t that much of an issue This also meant that there isn t a woman who has a relevant role in the whole book which I don t really likeI liked reading about this world It looks like a horrible place to be in but it also has one of the most interesting magic systems I ve read in a while both because it includes superpowers I had never seen in a novel before the main character main s power is technopathy basically magical hacking and because it s based on knowledge you can get new powers if you study for example you can get telekinesis from physicsWhat I liked less about the world is that I often had no idea how anything looked like but I can t say I didn t like the writing either because this is the kind of story that felt effortless and that I went through in less than two days two days during which it took over my head and I couldn t think about anything else The Black Ice Score (Parker, use it against the government But then he
