In The Electric Heir, Noam struggles to define what s happening to him as abuse, even as Dara begins the slow road to recovery Noam and Dara experienced the abuse differently, reacting in very different ways and each must face Lehrer on his own terms If there is anything I want the reader to understand when they read The Electric Heir, it is this there s no one way to be a survivor To understand Noam and Dara s story is to understand a story of not being believed of facing your abuser alone of not being the kind of victim people expect And all I want is for these characters to be believed It s really important to me that everyone who reads this book has a safe experience I posted detailed content warnings for The Fever King on my website, and most of them also apply to this book so I recommend checking out that post as well.However this book is a lot darker than TFK The Electric Heir is an exploration of the narratives we tell ourselves in order to survive abuse while it s happening, and the slow journey of being able to define and face our trauma after it s over.One thing I want to make clear is that some characters in this book will initially express ideas and narratives about abuse that are harmful and false, such as denying that abuse is occuring or denying that certain acts constitute abuse Many abuse victims, including myself, once believed similar narratives it was the only way we were able to survive the abuse while it was going on.However, these narratives are ultimately challenged That s part of the characters journeys in this book So I just wanna be clear that even if a character expresses a certain belief or beliefs at a given point, that is not an endorsement on my part I also wanna be clear that there is a lot of denial going on in this book, especially in the first half and although the denial doesn t last, if this is something that will be difficult for you to read, you should know this up front.I wrote this book based off my own lived experiences as a survivor, which are not universal, and which are not always clean To survive is to fight for your life, for your self concept, for the right to your own agency and autonomy That s messy business This book reflects that messiness.Okay Now that s been said, let s move on to the specific content warnings First, I ll list a general set of content warnings Details will be linked on my blog, and may contain spoilers.Spoiler free list intergenerational trauma, genocide violence abuse attempted rape mental health and suicide slut shaming victim blaming emetophobia drug and alcohol abuse parental death ableist languageTo view the full list of content warnings with detail, please click through to my blog here.
