Call Maya Svevak’s Svevi Avatar: Persecution of Constantina the fitting literary potion for the post-Pandemic Age of Trumpian alternate realities. In a neo-Nazi settlement called Constantina, a people believing in their racial and religious superiority see their young, charismatic leader, Andrew, unexpectedly die only to be resurrected — by an advanced female consciousness who lived 12,000 years ago — and lead a revolt against the Guardians, an ancient power-hungry empire that has long dominated the world.

As he implements a political strategy that exploits Indigenous refugees, Andrew falls in love with a mysterious Indigenous woman whose powers could easily annihilate Constantina, making him question a lifetime of indoctrination.
