    fever heat

    Would you please help to correct this sentence.

    I felt that I stepped into the world of the most interesting group in the universe through her talking that was at fever heat.

    I wanted to emphasize the words she used which were so hot, like a fire ball

    How can I put it properly

    Try: "I felt that I stepped into the world of the most interesting group in the universe, through her words of fever heat."

    To use "talking" to convey her speech or her words is awkward; a native speaker of English would not use that term there. I thought "words" would be better than "speech" because it sounds more poetic, while "speech" feels a bit dry.

    Did you mean:

    I felt that I stepped into the world of the most interesting group in the universe through her speech that was at a fever pitch.

    How about:

    Her exciting speech made me feel as though I had entered into another universe containing the most interesting people.

    Her speech was at such a fevered pitch, it felt as if I had stepped into the most interesting world in the universe. Her words were on fire!
