Athena officers have orders to never kill their targets. The all-female vigilante organization captures those involved in terrorism, kidnapping, and the like and brings them to justice through the court system. On Jessie Archer’s mission in West Africa, though, she loses control and kills the man she and her team are meant to bring back alive. She is almost immediately dismissed from Athena, leaving the rest of the organization a woman short for their next mission. Jessie knows they’ll still need her help, so she strikes out on her own. Meanwhile, she must avoid the members of her team, who have orders to capture her on sight. Will Jessie be able to pull off this investigation alone?
To be completely honest, The Athena Protocol was not at all what I expected. The story is much less dystopian than I imagined it might be. However, I found that I very much enjoyed it. The Athena Protocol is, if anything, only a bit futuristic. Jessie seems to never catch a break, and neither does the reader. Her every new discovery leads her deeper into danger and yet ever closer to unveiling the full truth. So, if you like action, suspense, and teen vigilantes saving the day, you’ll love The Athena Protocol.
