is now up on my blog There s something about books that make you avoid any and all real life responsibilities, stay up until 2 a.m bleary eyed and exhausted, and leave you with your soul crushed beyond recognition and have you loving every single second of it Something that leaves a distinctly enunciated yes in its wake that reverberates warmly in your heart with its perfect, almost poetic diction, and its all consuming intensity.And that special something has ensconced itself deeply in The Fever King The Fever King is about family the one tied together by blood, and the one you choose for yourself about being torn between two worlds, and fighting for what is right It s about loss, living life in the wake of trauma, and about finding oneself about making choices that shape oneself, and shaping oneself with the choices one makes Now that both Noam s parents were gone, the world was much larger than it had been before gaping around him, sharp toothed and hungry It is filled with beautiful metaphors, accentuating a writing style that stands out with its uniqueness a touch of poetry mingled with velvet soft prose The ground underfoot sprouted with flowers magical little buds of gold and silver that moved without breeze, glittering petals spiraling up into the air When Noam inhaled, their magic was spun sugar on his tongue The narrative, too, is completely entrancing, with many clues foreshadowing what s to come brilliantly threaded into it, creating an slightly unsettling atmosphere that keeps you intrigued and suspicious, and always on edge, waiting for the next shoe sharp, and elegant to drop in a brilliant arch that cuts air.What is perhaps the biggest reason behind, and inspiration for my adoration for this book, however, are the characters not only the main character Noam who made something profound in my heart stir, when he curled up in a corner to read a book in silence, and it felt like home to him, who continued to fight for immigrants rights, and refused to give up even in the face of adversity but also if not especially Dara Dara, who claimed he hated everything, but secretly dreamed of counting the stars There comes a point in your life, when you realize that fictional characters can make you feel so much love for them that you actually feel like you live through their hardships with them, and that s what Dara does He s a character with layers upon layers, and the you unveil, the you love him.Among many romances, The Fever King s stands out with a slow burn that tugs at your heart, and makes you simultaneously delight and suffer in equal measure It shows you that having your heart ripped to shreds by unsaid words, dark secrets, misunderstandings, and horrifying reveals, and mended together by the most beautifully written and heart wrenching scenes, and witty, humorous banter, can be the best gift you ve ever had the fortune to receive 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 In a world filled with magic, Victoria Lee brings to life not only an immensely captivating, and unforgettable story, as well as characters that capture your heart she paints a vivid imagery of very relevant and important issues in our society, and cleverly illuminates them with a searing portrayal That was the whole point Governments didn t have to listen to the people until the people made it hurt not to listen The Fever King is a book that crushed my soul, and had me loving every single second of it, soaked in angst, and drenched in anticipation Victoria Lee believes in her story, lives her story, and pours so much love, and so much of herself, into her characters and it shows.It s a book that destined to imprint itself into your being so wholly that you ll be left wondering who you were before you came to love it, after you finish it and all I can say is you don t want to miss out on it Thank you so much to Meghan Beatie for sending me an advance copy of this book It in no way influenced my opinion, or rating The quotes above were taken from the ARC, and are

IT WAS SO CHARACTER DRIVEN But at the same time, we re given science and betrayal AND TRUE LOVE FOR THE GAYS This was an excellent novel What is this book about Noam a gorgeous bisexual high school dropout lives in a post nuclear fallout America In his society, magic is a virus if you get infected you either die or live and gain magical powers The cool thing about it is that these powers are based on actual science technology So, if you want to, say, heal things You must have a solid foundation in anatomy So no screwing up in your STEM classes If I do say so myself, what a concept IT S JUST REALLY SMOOTH AND COOL Our story starts off with Noam living in the slums and his parents are illegal immigrants So, Noam s focused on social justice and protesting for the human rights that immigrants deserve which is extremely relevant and I was v proud to see this DISCUSSED So, we just have a brave, accountable, good teenage boy Living his life w his vacant father yes his dad is as useful as a piece of lettuce But then one fateful day, Noam s entire neighborhood is infected Noam survives and develops powers, but everyone else dies He s whisked away to a special government school for magical kids the story commences to hurt my feelings Characters NoamNoam is a heroic, determined boy Sometimes he s a little bit drunk on patriotism For example, he makes decisions solely based on the greater good for immigrants, and is generally into utilitarianism So, it can blind him sometimes And his willingness to stab people may be frowned upon in some circles But overall he s a pretty sweet guy c I JUST REALIZED HE S AN ANTIHERO So, there s that for the goddamn win He s also Jewish, bisexual, and Latino, and he s not afraid to stand up for himself when someone puts him down for being who he is I M JUST VERY PROUD OF THIS CUPCAKE AND I LOVE HIM My absolute favorite part of Noam s story, though, is his relationship with Calix Lehrer, who slowly becomes a father figure over the course of the story I ve never read this brand of found family and it was an experience I ll cherish for my entire life Their relationship is complex TO SAY THE ABSOLUTE LEAST But I was really into it Dara DARA IS SO SWEET He has a past and I felt so protective of him, meanwhile he s protective of every single one of his friends He s gorgeous, brilliant, has secret powers, and is so soft when it anything concerns Noam who can I talk to about selling my soul to Dara I don t want to say too much about him because so much of his character contains spoilers But I ll leave you with this Noam and Dara s love story hate to love AND I DIDN T EVEN HAVE TIME TO PREPARE FOR IT But now you can Doing good deeds again this year like the sweetheart I am c c c Overall I wish the entire series were published right now I don t haveping skills for this kind of thing WHY CAN T I BINGE, WHERE ARE THE REST OF THE BOOKS that ending cannot be all I have It s like sand, slipping through my fingers I FEEL SO ALONE and yet my heart is beating so fast after what this plot put me through, and I m suddenly deeply suspicious of everyone except Dara and Noam, because they deserve nothing but fond

concerned I d have to DNF it And then incredibly the plot went from plodding along to flat out sprinting Honestly, I nearly got whiplash from the sudden change of pace.But It s that change of pace which definitely saved this book from utter tedium.In this futuristic world, the US has been split into two countries Carolinia, the north, and Atlantia, the south The two sides have a relationship similar to that of the modern day US and Mexico Refugees from Atlantia constantly try and escape into Carolinia, which is richer and has better resources.Carolinia, however, strongly objects to these illegal immigrants Atlantians often bring diseases with them not just any disease, but magic Magic manifests itself as a fever, and only if you survive it very unlikely will you get magical powers Most of Carolinia s government has magical powers, but they don t want the huge death tolls that would result from Atlantians infecting the general Carolinian population with the disease.Sixteen year old Atlantian Noam lvaro has just survived the fever which killed his father But when he wakes, it s to discover that Calix Lehrer the immortal, all powerful Minister of Defence for Carolinia has taken a special interest in him Noam hates the Carolinian government for its treatment of refugees He s determined to bring it down and maybe, just maybe, he has an ally in Lehrer.Let s go over what I liked about the book first Noam s love interest Dara Shirazi, Lehrer s adopted son, was a great character He s damaged, loyal, protective, angry it was wonderful seeing the slow burn romance develop I loved how the three main characters Noam, Dara, and Lehrer were all very much shades of grey I m a sucker for moral ambiguity, and The Fever King had that in spades The political intriguing moved very slowly for most of the book, but in the last third it became a whirlwind of twists I did appreciate that Noam was a bisexual Jewish boy of Argentinian ancestry.Now for the dislikes This is my biggest gripe THERE WAS A VERY STRONG AND DISTINCT LACK OF THE PLUPERFECT TENSE It jarred my nerves constantly The author seemed utterly unaware that such a tense existed, which really damaged the quality of the narrative Noam acted weirdly stupidly at times Like, he broke into a top security government building, but he had zero plan no disguise, no idea what his excuse would be if he got caught, nothing It s got to be one of the dumbest things I ve seen a character do It took me a while to be clear on what exactly happened to splinter the US into these two countries, and I m still not sure if I get it Also, it s mentioned that at one point, the American people voted themselves a king I m not American, but I venture to suggest that there is nothing the American people are less likely to do The book is very short on character descriptions, which was okay for the main characters because I m invested in those but meant I could barely tell the side characters from one another.On the whole A fairly good book, which improved so much at the end that I ll be reading the sequel I would recommend this to anyone okay with slow burn romance and slow burn plot flag 10 likesLike see review Nov 24,

along a series of storytelling benchmarks that are are remarkably difficult to measure up to, but when matched, produce those rare books that slip under your skin and linger inside the broken down wreckage of your heart long after you ve finished reading The setting of The Fever King may rest on underpinnings of fantasy and specifically, science fantasy , but the pull no punches realism of its world mirrors the complexity of our own on a level truly worthy of the characters, who aren t so much good people or bad people so much as they are intelligent, fascinating, monstrous, vulnerable people who make choices that exist along seemingly infinite gradients of good and bad and look, it s complicated That combination creates one of my favorite but often trickiest narrative structures in which macro level social and political stakes trickle down to an intimately micro level, character driven narrative The scope of events and conflicts in the world of The Fever King could comprise an entire series of Economist or Politico op eds, but the heart of the story centers on the struggles of individual people whose wants, needs, and histories intersect to varying degrees with the explosive scale of geopolitical upheaval in the backdrop of their personal lives Worldbuilding and character development become mutually inextricable, which in turn creates a seamless sense of immersion for the reader.You don t have to be a political science wonk to love The Fever King, but if you are, you probably will If this book were a Pentagon sponsored war game, you d have near infinite scenarios to play out, because the imagined history of this speculative former United States is gruesome, fascinating, and heavily colored by realism While gritty political world building abounds these days on shelves of YA and crossover SFF alike, few touch on enough layers of nuance to make that grit feel true to the complexity of real life power struggles We get windows into straight up military conflict, ranging from fire bombings to scuffles with the equivalent of small militias, but we also get glimpses of potential trade wars and soft power diplomacy at work Political landscapes in the real world are a multidimensional beast of a playing field, and so is The Fever King.The characters who reap the fallout of this explosive web of events are no less messy or fascinating than the world that gave rise to them Get ready to see lines between heroes and villains not blurred so much as thoroughly and artfully eviscerated And get ready to enfold Noam and Dara, your new queer brown bookish sons, into the tenderest parts of your icy breakable heart Because at the end of the day, this story is theirs, and by virtue of loving them, yours too flag 8 likesLike

King is a riveting novel, but I did have a difficult time getting invested in the characters and plot This book is filled with a decent amount of world building, politics, and science, which made the beginning seem daunting Once I pushed The Fever King is a phenomenal story Dealing with diverse characters, angst, and action, this is a book you can t miss out on While Victoria Lee is a debut author, it s hard to tell when reading The Fever King I must be transparent with you all The Fever King is a riveting novel, but I did have a difficult time getting invested in the characters and plot This book is filled with a decent amount of world building, politics, and science, which made the beginning seem daunting Once I pushed past the beginning of The Fever King, though, I couldn t stop reading.Even though it took me a decent amount of time to get used to the politics and world within this novel, these two aspects are what made book one in this series so special and memorable The Fever King is set in an apocalyptic world containing magical viruses and a fight for human rights Those three topics may sound odd put together, but Victoria Lee managed to twist them all into an applaudable novel.Victoria Lee crafted an abundant amount of characters in The Fever King, but her focus was on Noam and Dara Noam and Dara s character development was sincerely genius, to say in the least.In the beginning, Noam was a struggling boy who only lived to help his ill father and fight for the rights of refugees Noam slowly turned into a man on a mission when he became the single survivor of a magical virus that killed those around him Dara didn t change as drastically as Noam Instead, Dara s development was opening himself up to Noam He was initially an enigma who didn t want anything to do with Noam, but he began to show Noam exactly who he was and what he believed in.The romantic aspect of The Fever King was minuscule, which wasn t shocking After all, there was so much going on without romance The slow burn between Noam and Dara was delicious The two of them were different people with different mindsets, but their attraction was palpable It didn t feel rushed or forced, and I expect to see Noam and Dara s relationship grow throughout the series.From an intricate writing style to diverse and developed characters to a devious plot that will leave you reeling, The Fever King is possibly one of the best debut novels I have read The Fever King may be a dense novel, but you will find yourself flying through the pages without a second thought The wait for book two will be a long one flag 4 likesLike see review May 11, 2018 Jade rated it it was amazing Shelves 2019 tbr, favorites I had the privilege of reading an early version of this and it was perfection

    5. This world and these characters have lived inside my head for years, and I m so excited to have the chance to share them with you When I think back on the past few years, it feels like my life has been defined by writing this story In Iowa City, these characters were still just flickering snippets of ideas, voices that emerged on my late night runs on the trail between the cornfields Then, living in Stockholm, I remember taking the t bana in to work and pressing my brow against the chilly wind T [...]
