About this book
When fifteen-year old Ejii witnesses her father?s beheading, her world shatters. In an era of mind-blowing technology and tantalizing magic, she embarks on a mystical journey to track down her father?s killer. With a newfound friend by her side, Ejii comes face-to-face with an earth turned inside out -- and with her own magical powers.

But she soon discovers that her travels across the sands of the Sahara have a greater purpose. Her people need to be protected from a force seeking to annihilate them. And Ejii may be just the hero to do it.

This futuristic, fantastical adventure heralds a bright new talent on the YA fantasy scene.

Nnedi Okorafor-Mbachu made her fiction debut with Zahrah the Windseeker. Her short stories have won many awards, and she earned her Ph.D. in English at the University of Illinois, Chicago.
