Hunted and mortally wounded by an ancient foe, Queen Amina of Zaria’s one great task has never been more important or imperiled. In desperation she casts her fate, mantle, and relics of power 400 years into the future, into the hands of a teenage girl: Hadiza.
With no say in the matter, university student Hadiza Ibrahim finds she has inherited Queen Amina’s enemies; evil and powerful beings from another dimension hell-bent on the destruction of her Northern kin. But she also receives the Queen’s mighty weapons and supernatural abilities.
She sets out with the one ally she can trust, evading enemies on all sides, from the forests of Zamfara to the hills of Abuja on a quest to fulfill Queen Amina’s task and become the new Guardian of the North.
