This intense sequel with plenty of action will continue to engage fans of varied genres, including dystopian sci-fi, romance (especially same-sex romance), and fantasy. It's a big undertaking at almost 500 pages, but the action, romance, and suspense keep the pages turning. Reading The Fever King first is recommended to understand the characters better and appreciate the near-future, post-apocalyptic setting. There are a few slow spots, some things are a bit repetitive, and there's one abrupt jump to a completely different place that some may find jarring while others will enjoy being kept on their toes.

A strong theme of recovery runs throughout The Electric Heir, most especially from sexual and physical abuse but also from illness and substance abuse as well. Author Victoria Lee provides content notes in the back where she lists potentially triggering issues such as these explored in the story. She also provides resources for those seeking help. These mature themes, intense violence, strong language, as well as a couple of incidents pairing sex and violence, make it best for mature readers.
