Read The League of American Traitors Online Free - National Treasure meets Hamilton in a breathless history-based thriller from an outstanding new voice.
Those who don’t know history are destined to repeat it. . . .
When seventeen year-old Jasper is approached at the funeral of his deadbeat father by a man claiming to be an associate of his deceased parents, he’s thrust into a world of secrets tied to America’s history—and he’s right at the heart of it.
First, Jasper finds out he is the sole surviving descendant of Benedict Arnold, the most notorious traitor in American history. Then he learns that his father’s death was no accident. Jasper is at the center of a war that has been going on for centuries, in which the descendants of the heroes and traitors of the American Revolution still duel to the death for the sake of their honor.
His only hope to escape his dangerous fate on his eighteenth birthday? Take up the research his father was pursuing at the time of his death, to clear Arnold’s name.
Whisked off to a boarding school populated by other descendants of notorious American traitors, it’s a race to discover the truth. But if Jasper doesn’t find a way to uncover the evidence his father was hunting for, he may end up paying for the sins of his forefathers with his own life.
Like a mash-up of National Treasure and Hamilton, Matthew Landis’s debut spins the what-ifs of American history into a heart-pounding thriller steeped in conspiracy, clue hunting, and danger.

Oh, how I wanted to love League of American Traitors. It had such a promising premise but the execution just didn’t work for me.

I wanted to like this book. I think the author has frankly created a brilliant premise, which deserves to be explored.
Unfortunately, the absurd writing and characterizations make the book tedious, and close to impossible to read. Whomever edited this book did Landis an extreme disservice,...

while i don't particularly care about USA history, the premise of secret societies pulled me in. it was interesting enough, and it began action packed, except at some point it became too mellow for me.
