In the sequel to The Fever King, Noam Álvaro seeks to end tyranny once and for all. After escaping death and overthrowing the oppressive government, Noam finds himself leading a revolution.
But with his magic waning and his loved ones in danger, Noam must make a choice: stay and fight for justice, or flee for the safety of those he holds dear. As Noam navigates the dangerous world of politics and power, he discovers that the only way to truly end the cycle of violence may be to sacrifice everything he holds dear.
The Electric Heir is a gripping tale of love, loss, and the price of freedom.
About the Author
In my opinion, growing up in a small town can give someone an edge in using their imagination. It becomes a necessity to keep oneself sane.
My imagination, although it caused trouble at first, ultimately saved me. The downside to having a vivid imagination is the temptation to tell falsehoods.
Despite being considered a responsible adult due to my age, I still yearn to attend Hogwarts and have climbed into countless wardrobes hoping to find the entrance to Narnia. I must admit, I get lost on the King’s Road.
However, my profession as an international bestseller permits me to be seen as quirky or eccentric, which I am grateful for. I am happily married with two daughters, and I share my home with two enormous dogs, two ferocious cats, and I enjoy a glass of red wine on occasion.
