Key Features


Twelve-year-old Shuri is a lot of things. Scientist. Princess. All around cooler person than her pain-in-the-butt big brother T’Challa. Shuri knows she could do so much more, but everyone is obsessed with T’Challa because he’s the next Black Panther.

That is, until Soul Washing Day, one of the most important rituals of Wakandan society. This is the annual day when the royal family receives the blessings of the ancestors so that Wakanda may prosper. When an argument between T’Challa and Shuri leads to one of Shuri’s inventions accidentally destroying the sacred ceremony site, instead of prosperity, chaos reigns. Vibranium-based technology all throughout Wakanda begins to malfunction, leaving their nation vulnerable to attacks. Soon rumors spread that this curse is the ancestors revoking their blessing from the current royal family, and that the only way to lift it is to pass the throne and Black Panther role to a new family entirely.

Shuri doesn’t believe any of this “curse” nonsense, but that doesn’t change the fact that if someone doesn’t fix their tech soon, the kingdom could be in danger. Her research leads her to believe the answer to all their problems lies in a power core hidden deep inside the oldest vibranium mine in all of Wakanda. But to reach it, she’ll have to cross the Heartlands, the deepest part of Wakanda, where legends tell of ancient beasts and dark magic few have survived. And even worse, she’ll have to figure out how to sneak out without her parents noticing.

Joining Shuri on her journey is none other than a meddling T’Challa. If Shuri and T’Challa can set aside their jealousy and resentment of each other long enough to survive this journey, they might just discover that they are far more powerful together than they could ever be apart. But if they can’t face their fears in the Heartlands and lift the so-called curse, it may not be just the end for their family, but the end of Wakanda as they know it.

No pressure, right?
