Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
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.

    The finale of Lee's Feverwake duology doesn't stand alone, but that won't deter readers drawn into the layered complexity and political relevance of The Fever King (2019). Sixteen-year-old Noam Álvaro works for Calix Lehrer, chancellor of Carolinia. However, Noam has recently regained memories that reveal Lehrer not as the political progressive he claims to be but as the man responsible for the spread of a deadly virus that killed Noam's immigrant family. To complicate matters, Noam is in love with Lehrer's son Dara, whose magic powers were stripped by the virus; together Dara and Noam conspire to overthrow Calix's reign. Lee uses interviews, court documents, medical records, emails, and text of video footage to cleverly incorporate character-developing details and to heighten tension. The themes of immigration, deportation, racism, and martial law are so relevant that readers may find it didactic—or rather, reflective of today's politics. The refreshingly happy ending for a gay couple provides a satisfying conclusion. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
