Some FAQ about the trip
Mark your calendar for June 26 through July 4, 2021!
The Classic Belize & Tikal Adventure Tour is a group trip run by G Adventures. There will only be a small number of other travelers (approx. 10-12), so you’ll make plenty of memories with Jess. Lodging is shared with a roommate of the same sex, or you may upgrade to a private room at your expense. You’ll find more details on the Adventure Tour page.
The 9-day Classic Belize & Tikal Adventure Tour cost, a bonus snorkeling excursion to Hol Chan Marine Reserve, and your airfare from any major US airport (up to $700) are covered. Winner is responsible for meals, additional optional excursions, and any other expenses that may arise.
At this time, Belize is open to travel by providing a negative COVID-19 test and agreeing to follow safety protocols. If the trip is prevented due to COVID-19, we’ll reschedule for a later tour.
About the book
About the book
With men safely “gentled” in a worldwide Liberation, the matriarchy of Nedé has risen from the ashes. Seventeen-year-old Reina Pierce has never given a thought to the Brutes of old. Itching to escape her mother’s finca—and desperate to keep her training and forbidden friendship a secret—her greatest worry is which Destiny she’ll choose on her next birthday. But when she’s selected as a candidate for the Succession instead, competing to become Nedé’s ninth Matriarch, she discovers their Eden has come at a cost she’s not sure she’s willing to pay.
Jess Corban’s debut novel presents a new twist to the dystopian genre, delivering heart-pounding action, thought-provoking revelations, and a setting as lush as the jungles of Central America.
