Mina is an inspiring heroine. She’s bold and gutsy within the restraints placed on her by society, and positively daring when it comes to her early interactions with Juda. Fascinating dynamics govern the relationships Mina has with her family, as well as her interactions with her future mother-in-law. My one, major complaint with this book is that I don’t understand how such an extreme, patriarchal religion could hail a woman as a prophet. That said, I feel it could’ve worked if the author had developed the idea more. Time Zero surpassed my expectations. Cohagan intertwines an important narrative about misogyny with a web of intrigue that culminates in jaw-dropping plot twists.
