I love books that start off like this, where there is a glimpse of the past - more than 100 years earlier, and I'm already wondering who these people are and why they are relevant to the present story. How is it all going to tie in together?? As it all started to make sense, I did find myself flicking back to these moments to reread the information again now that I understood the relevance.
I have to say that very early on in this book I couldn't help but feel suspicious of EVERYONE! There were the real power players Lehrer, Sacha and then possibly Brennan. There seemed to be definite good guys versus bad guys, but throw in politics and magic and I was reading as fast as I could to find out what was really going on.
Noam seems so lost at the start, he definitely struggles with his new life. He doesn't fit in with his new "friends", and those he still has contact with from his life prior to the virus outbreak no longer seem to trust him. He is determined to prove himself useful and is desperate to do something about the refugee camps, but who can Noam himself trust?
Dara was my favourite character, and he was probably the most interesting. He seems to have it all - looks, power, popularity, and he has the connection to Lehrer. Noam is immediately attracted to Dara, but Dara appears to ignore him. Initially. I love storylines with m/m relationships, in this instance physically it was very tame. Emotionally Noam and Dara had a lot to deal with, with all the political intrigue that was surrounding them.
I really liked The Fever King, can't wait for book 2 to see what happens next after that ending.
