Jessie Archer is a member of the Athena Protocol, an elite organization of female spies who enact vigilante justice around the world.
Athena operatives are never supposed to shoot to kill—so when Jessie can’t stop herself from pulling the trigger, she gets kicked out of the organization, right before a huge mission to take down a human trafficker in Belgrade.
Jessie needs to right her wrong and prove herself, so she starts her own investigation into the trafficking. But going rogue means she has no one to watch her back as she delves into the horrors she uncovers. Meanwhile, her former teammates have been ordered to bring her down. Jessie must face danger from all sides if she’s to complete her mission—and survive.
This novel was such a cool ride!
The style of writing was so unique and the creative thought processes that went into its makeup must have been extensive as this book had so many different elements of fun and surprise. I literally had to put it down just to allow myself to actually be an adult and get things besides reading accomplished!
There were so many parts of this novel that had my anxiety piqued because I was unsure of what was going to happen next, and stories like that are always memorable to me because they really push my imagination outside of its limits.
SARIF did such an amazing job with the construct of Jessie’s character and the overall makeup of the elite organization. The book is just as exciting as its synopsis and will keep you guessing until its final page.
I hope that you have the absolute time of your life within the pages of this great escape!
