I close my eyes, trying to push the power bubbling in me back down . .

Her mother quickly whisks her off to the Academy of the Sun, a school in Nigeria where Solari - children with superpowers - are trained. But Onyeka and her new friends at the Academy soon have to put their powers to the test as they find themselves caught up in an epic battle . . .

one that puts the future of all Solari at risk.
