Doctor Aloysius Freeman and Professor Allela Freeman present hidden figures in the American story.
As the initial sparks of the American Revolution catch flame, Jupiter Nameless is a man between worlds.
On the one hand, he has access to all the wealth, wisdom, and privilege of Monticello, home to Thomas Jefferson, who is something of a mentor and patron for Jupiter.
On the other hand, Jupiter is Jefferson’s slave.
When a common errand suddenly goes awry, Jupiter finds himself facing something he’s never seen before: some new sort of blight that turns men rabid.
Faced with slave catchers on one side and murderous, blighted hordes on the other, Jupiter and Jefferson must work together to save themselves and whoever hasn’t yet been turned.
