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.Review: Holy crap this book was fantastic! Like Kim Possible but more awesome and way more adult. The book does amazing at character development and building relationships between the characters instead of just relying on history. The book has a solid romance and I engulfed it in one sitting!My only issue is that this is for much more mature audiences and it discusses things that are horrific in real life. The book feels like an adult novel, but I don’t think that should deter anyone, especially teens, from reading this.Verdict: Definitely check this one out!BOOK INFORMATIONThe Athena Protocolby Shamim Sarif
