In case you haven’t yet read book 1, Beasts of Prey: Koffi is indentured to the notorious Night Zoo, caring for its magical creatures and working toward her family’s freedom. Ekon is destined to become an elite warrior — until he encounters the Shetani, a vicious monster that has plagued the city for almost a century, and Koffi, who unleashes a power that wards off the beast. Ekon is determined to hunt the Shetani down, but he’ll need Koffi’s help to do it, and the two enter the Greater Jungle together.
What it’s about: Koffi’s sacrifice may mean that Ekon and her city were both saved, but she now has to serve the god of death. Meanwhile, Ekon is setting out to make alliances in hopes of rescuing Kofi from the realm of death, but doing so means getting closer to a dark truth. To reunite, their loyalties will be tested, as will their willingness to reach for the danger inside of them. This stellar sequel deepens these beautifully realized main characters and keeps you wanting more stories in this world.
