Book blurb:

In the sequel to The Fever King, Noam Álvaro seeks to end tyranny before he becomes a tyrant himself.

Six months after Noam Álvaro helped overthrow the despotic government of Carolinia, the Atlantians have gained citizenship, and Lehrer is chancellor. But despite Lehrer’s image as a progressive humanitarian leader, Noam has finally remembered the truth that Lehrer forced him to forget—that Lehrer is responsible for the deadly magic infection that ravaged Carolinia.

Now that Noam remembers the full extent of Lehrer’s crimes, he’s determined to use his influence with Lehrer to bring him down for good. If Lehrer realizes Noam has evaded his control—and that Noam is plotting against him—Noam’s dead. So he must keep playing the role of Lehrer’s protégé until he can steal enough vaccine to stop the virus.

Meanwhile Dara Shirazi returns to Carolinia, his magic stripped by the same vaccine that saved his life. But Dara’s attempts to ally himself with Noam prove that their methods for defeating Lehrer are violently misaligned. Dara fears Noam has only gotten himself more deeply entangled in Lehrer’s web. Sooner or later, playing double agent might cost Noam his life.

My review:

Trigger Warning- abuse , genocide, parental death, violence, suicide, attempt to rape.

You are expected to stay silent after a worse abuse just by saying that you won’t be believed by anybody. This is not true, speak up, battle and take your stand until and unless you make your points clear.

Cause and effect, action and consequence.

This book hits me to the core, scratches some very deep damages and brings back to reality. I cried, after a very long, cried really hard after reading a book and calling this book just incredible, heart wrenching and heart warming would not be enough.

I want to choose you,

Noam said softly,

Every day, again and again.

The writing style is outstanding in itself. Like its kind that moved lyrically and makes you stop to just collect your thoughts back and read again.

I said I have an ideology, and there is nothing wrong with that. There is nothing wrong with fighting for something you believe in.

This is a short review because my gushing out for this book would might bring out some spoilers. So just don’t think twice and pick this one up.

Thanks to @theffbc for the #gifted copy.✨
