The Loyalists is an episodic sci-fi audio drama set in the year 2053 during the second American civil war. Three soldiers are dispatched to protect the wealthy hiding out in a luxury resort in the Amazon jungle.
Even with the usual twists and turns that you might expect from a thriller about characters with unknown loyalties, there's a surreality to The Loyalists that kept me off balance. The setting's an old hotel with a dysfunctional AI. The area around it is populated with animal hybrids for one of the guests to hunt. And then there's the preternaturally precocious eight year old who is the most intriguing mystery of all.
