's review

it was amazing

Worth the purchase for those who want a little more out of their archaeological thrillers. This is a YA adventure novel for 2017, where the struggle for freedom is implicated with the existent power structures of today and the rise of the alt-right. A cult worshiping the god of freedom kidnaps Jade and over the course of the novel, the cult's hypocrisy is gradually revealed to be part and parcel of the same power structures that ensure the endurance of slavery in the modern day (in the form of human trafficking). Fans of Mike Duncan's Revolutions podcast and the history of the Haitian Revolution will especially appreciate this book.
