As she and her twin sister Tishala begin to prepare for life as apprentices, Xola encounters the mysterious Tau, a Dream Messenger, who reveals her destiny far beyond the ordinary. Whisked away to the enigmatic magic school, Amandla, Xola embarks on a journey of self-discovery and empowerment. Amid the ancient halls, she seeks to uncover the secrets of her magical abilities, a legacy intertwined with the stars themselves. As she masters her newfound powers, Xola unravels a looming dark threat that endangers all of Africa, and the very essence of magic itself. With time ticking, she must delve into the depths of her abilities, uncover family secrets, and thwart the mysterious danger threatening to obliterate the magical world. The fate of magic lies in her hands, as does the resolution of a mystery that binds her and her family to an unimaginable destiny.

About the Author

Takara Monique is a multitasking mom to a tween boy and a spoiled dog named Roxie, as well as a librarian and a teacher who somehow finds time to indulge in her love of folklore, fairytale retellings, and Marvel comics.

With over two decades of experience in writing poetry and essays, Takara is excited to dip her toes into the world of YA fantasy writing. Amandla, her first novel, is a love letter to African folklore, magic, the bonds of friends and family, and the beautiful journey to self-discovery.
