Svevi Avatar portrays an intriguing alternative timeline that forces us to evaluate the world around us, our values, and our treatment of historically silenced groups such as women, the Indigenous, people of colour, and refugees. It combines a captivating and layered plot interwoven with scandal, politics, myth, and love. The book is much more than a piece of fiction or an alternative timeline, but a testament to some of the most pressing questions plaguing the world today.
