Synopsis: 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.

So this story started after 6 month of The fever king . There is soo much sexual tension . How Dara is dealing with it and how she faced child abuse.
This book gives dual perspective of Noam and Dara , their relation and suffering . This book is emotional roller coaster and a hard book for me to read.
I loved this story very much . This book was completely amazing ,character is well developed and story plot is just wow. The pacing and writing style is good , easy to read . This book is somewhat connected to reality and what is happening in today’s world.
Beyond the yellow and vibrant book cover there is dark story much darker than previous book in series : the Electric king.
