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.

[Scroll down for content warnings.]

The Electric Heir is, at its core, about what it means to be a survivor—both the experience of surviving, and the expectations that society places on survivors. Like Noam and Dara, I survived childhood sexual abuse and violence. Like Lehrer, my abuser was attractive and powerful and charismatic. Like Dara, I was not believed when I came forward…not until other girls said he’d done it to them too. Girls who more closely fit the stereotype of abuse survivors.

i would consider not suing victoria lee for the emotional distress caused by book #1 but only if i get to read this one like right now even thought it's not even written yet probably

Noam had crawled his way into Dara’s mind and planted himself there, a root system tangled into Dara’s thoughts and Dara’s telepathy.

Inextricable.

This was terribly dark but it also ended up being really well-written and probably a best book of the year.

Full review on my blog!

ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.

I always pitch The Fever King as a book about survivors for survivors. And if that’s the case, then The Electric Heir is supportive hand reaching for those who are still surviving, not yet out of the woods. It’s for the people who still blame themselves even though they rationally know they shouldn’t.

It’s for the people who feel hopeless, lost, and purposeless after every sense of agency is taken away from you.

Buddy read with Mina

4/5

The decision felt like a steel shell closing around his heart. And then he felt nothing at all.

Whew, this series was such a journey and I guess I acquired two new sons along the way.

This sequel is a study of survival and is definitely more character driven. The plot

I think the fever king may have been alot tighter plot wise but the character work in this had me crying and I couldn’t stop reading, definitely the most nuanced portrayal of grooming/ abuse survival I’ve ever read. I will definitely have a full review soon I just need to reread this to collect all of my thoughts

I have scrapped and rewritten this review so many times it's ridiculous, how can I review a book that is so good and so personal? None of my words can possibly do this book justice. Every time I try to say what makes this book what it is my mind either blanks or what it comes up with just isn't enough to convey why I love The Electric Heir so much. So this is a short review not for lack of this to talk about but because this book renders me speechless. I'm writing this with tears in my eyes.

Unpopular opinion time

First things first, I was wondering why there were trigger warnings at the start of this book. “Could it be that much darker than the first?”, I thought. Too soon, I realized that, yes— yes, it could! TW: sexual assault/rape, pederasty (I felt ill when there was the “You’re so much older than your age” line thrown in nonchalantly), drug, alcohol, and child abuse, physical/emotional

I waffled back and forth on how many stars to give this book. Five? Four? Surely not three, but on the other hand if I saw someone else give it three I wouldn’t be entirely baffled. Rationally, I can see how someone might rate this as low as three stars. If you judge The Electric Heir against using a standard fantasy novel metric you can clearly see that it has flaws.

However, Eletric Heir is not a standard fantasy novel. And also, fuck being rational.

Five stars. And if goodreads let you give

TW: intergenerational trauma, genocide, violence, abuse, attempted rape, mental health and suicide, slut-shaming, victim-blaming, emetophobia, drug and alcohol abuse, parental death, ableist language (Detailed warnings found on Lee's website)

The Electric Heir defies words. It's stunning. I hadn't planned on reading it in one day, but you know those books that don't let you go?

This duology may be the best dystopian series I've read. I'm honestly so impressed with the sheer psychological depth and the way it handles several important themes. Yes, this novel is a dystopian focused on overthrowing a corrupt government, like there are many others, but I've never read anything like this. At its core, it's about learning to recognize and getting out of an abusive relationship, and about how the end can justify the means, but only to a certain extent. All this made it heavy ...more

Be right back, still trying to lift my jaw from the ground. The Electric Heir is a beautifully written love letter for survivors, and I consider it an incredible privilege to be able to read such a gritty, albeit hopeful, novel. ALL THE STARS!

Full review to follow.

I absolutely adored The Fever King, and I was so anxious to read the sequel. The ending of the first book left me heartbroken, but The Electric Heir left me filled with hope. It's a stunning sequel, one that tells a story of healing and overcoming your abusers.

This book was at once an excellent sequel and a mildly disappointing conclusion to the duology.
I again found myself enamored with the fascinating and innovative dystopian world that Lee imagines for us. This series really restored my hope for YA dystopians. Victoria Lee has created some of the most captivating characters I have ever had the pleasure to read

The E-Arc The Electric Heir was kindly provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This has not altered my opinion of the book.

This was a really nice conclusion to the story! I just have to start with saying that. The ending was really nice and it even caught me by surprise. There was this exciting element of “how will this be solved” throughout the entire book and I really enjoyed it. I also love how this story focuses on life as a survivor and how similar things can be seen and

I received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

I have to admit, the first quarter of this book made me sick. I have a feeling that was the intended affect but man do I hate reading that stuff. It was really unsettling to have such a vivid inside look at Lehrer’s grooming and abuse. And I was so frustrated at Noam, but again, isn’t that the point? To show us that victims come in all shapes and sizes and the only person who deserves hatred and disgust in the perpetrator. I had
