A secret community of witches resides in Africa….
Twelve-year-old Sunny’s family moved from the United States to their native Nigeria when she was nine years old. Even though her family is originally from Nigeria, Sunny is always an outsider amongst her schoolmates. She’s American by birth and albino, both traits that make her a target for bullies.
When she has a terrifying vision of the end of the world, she discovers yet another quality that sets her apart from the rest of the community. She’s a Leopard, a person with magical abilities. With the help of three new friends and a challenge to protect her community from a ritual killer, she will find out who she really is and begin to learn the full extent of her capabilities.
