Write a Review

From Kwame Mbalia and Prince Joel David Makonnen comes
an action-packed Afrofuturist adventure about a mythical Ethiopian
empire. Sci-fi and fantasy combine in this epic journey to the

Yared Heywat lives an isolated life in Addis Prime
- a hardscrabble city with rundown tech, lots of rules,
and not much to do. His worrywart Uncle Moti and bionic lioness
Besa are his only family... and his only friends.
Often in trouble for his thrill-seeking antics and smart mouth,
those same qualities make Yared a star player of the underground
augmented reality game, The Hunt for Kaleb's Obelisk. But
when a change in the game rules prompts Yared to log in with his
real name, it triggers an attack that rocks the city.
In the chaos, Uncle Moti disappears.
Suddenly, all the stories Yared's uncle told him as a young boy
are coming to life, of kingdoms in the sky and
city-razing monsters. And somehow Yared is at the
centre of them.
Together with Besa and the Ibis - a game rival turned reluctant
ally - Yared must search for his uncle... and answers to his place
in a forgotten, galaxy-spanning war.
