The world in 2122 is quite different from what we know it to be today…or is it? For Noam Alvaro in The Fever King, being the sole survivor of a magical haras is a lot to put on his already compressed shoulders.
Noam and his family had been persecuted by those in control of Carolinia for some time, mainly due to their being undocumented immigrants to the area and the viciousness of the Witchings, Carolinia’s efficient crew tasked with keeping the region free from refugees and anyone in contact with magic. After his father’s death at the pass of the virus, Noam now attains himself alone in a hospital berthed, a survivor of the haras and now furnished with abilities that the Carolinian man in charge, Calix Lehrer, is ready to use for his own roles. With the promise that Lehrer will help him figure out what to do with his abilities, Noam accepts his new position, but not without his own secret plans.
Based on the young adult science fiction novel by Victoria Lee, the Webtoons series aspects artistry by Sara Deek( Vermelho ), who gorgeously adapts the tale into page after page of eye-catching panels. The colouring palette alone is enough to keep you fascinated as the complex storey develops. The narrative is timely. Aside from a virus that is putting everyone on edge, the political dynamic and the need for change are extents most of us can certainly relate to. I’m sure it’s not industrial accidents that Lehrer’s uniform examines dreadfully Third Reich.
