urban fantasy novel 
fantasy novel feels like science fictionalternative history Even the magic has a uasi scientific explanation which was appealing and helped to ground the novel On the other hand it didn t seem ealistic that not just the main characters but every single character in the novel is ueer per Victoria Lee s blog It made The Fever King feel like an interesting if unlikely exercise in diversity Hoffnung Mensch representation The politics in the novel and its concerns withefugee ights and the unlikely exercise in diversity epresentation The politics in the novel and its concerns with efugee ights and the between the haves and have nots also bear a clear message for our current societyLee s storytelling is a little disjointed and unclear most noticeably in the first half She creates an imaginative future society but it could have used worldbuilding For that first half I wasn t particularly enjoying the story just plowing through it But then it gets much clearer and the final third is exciting and tension filled with some solid twists and turns The Fever King is the first book in Lee s FEVERWAKE duology and though the ending doesn t leave you with a terrible cliffhanger the overall story is clearly unfinished at this pointAlthough the main character and his love interest are teenagers this is a hard hitting R ated book with countless F bombs a semi explicit gay sex scene it cuts from the initial foreplay to the aftermath discussion of sexual abuse underage drinking drug use violence and murder That s uite a list and I thought it was excessive for what is considered to be a YA book There s an audience for this type of novel but I wouldn t ecommend it for younger teens I ll admit to some curiosity about how the plot will be The Witch who was a princess resolved in The Electric Heir to be published in 2020 but I m on the fence as to whether I ll actuallyead it I Little Shop of Horrors: 8 Selections from the Musical: Easy Piano received a free copy of this book foreview from the publisher Skyscape and the publicist Thank you 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 ight 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 omance 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 Jeden výdych koňa 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 actin.
