The Fever King
The Fever King | Victoria Lee
19 posts | 15 read | 36 to read
In the former United States, sixteen-year-old Noam lvaro 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 nation of Carolinia. The son of undocumented immigrants, Noam has spent his life fighting for the rights of refugees fleeing magical outbreaks--refugees Carolinia routinely deports with vicious efficiency. Sensing a way to make change, Noam accepts the minister's offer to teach him the science behind his magic, 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 clear. Caught 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 good.

This was a #KindleFirst pick of mine that I finally finished this week. It‘s much easier for me to binge some books on the kindle cloud reader when I‘m spending 12hr shifts on the weekends working at the hospital. I really ended up liking this and am excited to see what comes next in the series.

now that it is NOT 2 am and I have a bit more natural light (it‘s storming so there‘s not a lot) I can better show off my #SCififantasyswap package. These are the Books!!!!

They are awesome. I have been telling Josh for a while now I need to get Superman so I can complete my collection. Plus I saw the Darkest minds movie and figured I would like the book better and now I get to find out.

I have not read Chima in years and look forward 👇🏻

LibrarianRyan To starting this book. I admit to knowing about the Fever except it has an excellent cover. And look I finally have a copy of Murder Bot 1. I have book 3 I think. This will be the first one I read!!! 5mo
Avanders So fun!! Curious about 5mo

Mehso-so

I don't...know if I liked this? There were good parts but I just didn't like anyone for like a good chunk of the book. There's so much emotional manipulation and the weird statutory rape situation. I'm kinda utterly confused about what power everyone has. Like no one seems to actually know anything about each other which seems odd for a government of magic ppl. There was just a lot that I didn't get. However, I actually really liked the writing.

mdemanatee Appreciate the review. May attempt a library loan as my TBR allows rather than using a scribd audio loan. 6mo

This book was AMAZING! It was fast paced and kept you guessing. The characters were very well written and the main character was flawed but trusting (very human). Not that it really added to the story because someone's sexuality is there sexuality but the main character was bisexual and in a dystopian/fantasy novel you don't see that often and I was pleasantly surprised by it! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ #netgalley

WhatWouldJaneDo Yay! I picked this up for Amazon first reads recently, really excited to read it now. Great review! 6mo
OnePageAtATime @WhatWouldJaneDo you'll have to let me know if you liked it as much as I did! 6mo

"Everyone else might be dead, but Noam was still fucking here. And as long as he was, he had a war to win."

I'm so glad this is a series because it cannot leave it there! There were a few times I questioned Noam as a character because he seemed so unreliable, but as things became clear... I shall say no more for fear of spoilers. I liked the way the story addressed important issues that we're dealing with in the world today without sugar coating or tiptoeing around them. The story moved along quickly, and it might have been nice to have a little more...

TCLinrow ... detail in a few key scenes, but it was nonetheless enjoyable to read. I got lost in the world every time I picked it up to read. I would definitely recommend it!❤💜💙 And that marks the first book ticked off my reading list, although I have a lot of them started already 😊 6mo

'All of them were so very proud an accident of birth made them Carolinian and bought them a lifetime of safety and privilege instead of fear and poverty and death. They ought to walk into that camp with the ground soaked in blood and magic and look Bea King in the face as she died alone and frightened at eight years old, at eight years old, and tell her she didn‘t deserve to stay in their country because her parents brought her here illegally.'

'Noam wasn‘t sure he liked being discussed as a business acquisition much more than he liked being looked down upon for his parents‘ nationality, but this time he kept his mouth shut. There was probably some cosmic quota for the amount of sass you could get away with in one day, and Noam wouldn‘t be surprised if that cold black-haired man was keeping score.'

Oh, this book! These boys! Their magic, and their trauma, and SO much angst. The beginning, the set up, took a little time to get into, but then it took off in a major way. There‘s a shit-ton of intrigue, and second guessing at character motivation. The world building is superb, and so politically relevant. Add in that Dara, Noam, and Lehrer are #ownvoices Jewish and it is a must read. I can‘t wait for the next book.

My first goal for March is to clear my in-progress books. I‘m going to start with Blood for Blood because it‘s the one with the most read so far. We‘re going to be snowed in this weekend, so I should be able to make some progress.

I had a hard time deciding on a kindle first book this month, but ultimately picked this one (and preordered two others). Jumping in tonight, but I can‘t read all night because I have to teach in the morning. #controlyourself

Here are some of Amazon's First Reads for February and, just based on the covers, I want all of these. Not sure how I'm going to choose.

RainyDayReading Love the cover for the Broken Circle one! It‘s just too pretty! 8mo
bookandbedandtea That's my favorite of these covers, @RainyDayReading. It's so beautiful. I was leaning towards the tagged book but I can't stop looking at Broken Circle so I might go with it. 8mo
