Jamila Freeman is a teenager just like any other – she gets good grades, hangs out with her friend, Michael, and her Aunt Nellie. She believes in facts, logic, and reason, and doesn’t believe in myths and fairytales – until she finds out she’s descended from Egyptian cat-goddess Bast, and comes from a long line of Bastet women with mythical powers. She navigates new life as she practices her powers of seeing into the future, changing the flow of time, and protecting people and souls. But when an age-old cult called the Toubab’s discover her newfound powers, she must use the help of her Aunt and fellow Bastet, Loni Washington, to develop her powers and defend herself as they hunt her without mercy. She must cast aside everything she’s known to adjust to this new life, and discover a part of herself she’s never seen before – but will she be able to fend for herself, and take on this new form of reality? Or will she fall prey to the predator that looms in the shadows.
