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 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.
The Fever King was just an alright read for me. The story was something different and it was a Male lead taking over. It was a interesting story, with some likeable characters.
Noam is our male lead in the book. He hate how things are run by this new ruler. He is kinda of a rebel. When a virus hits home, he is the only survivor. Now with magic powers and help with controlling them. He ready to right the wrongs in the world. In end who can he really trust?
This book was a little slow burn for me. The ending did peck my interest for to read book two. I may not enjoy the book a lot but you guys might like it. If you unsure and want to give Fever King a try, then get from local library like I did.
