Shadow Chasers – Book 1: Powers Of The Knife by Bontle Senne
08 Feb 2017
What if you discovered that you come from an ancient family of Shadow Chasers, with a duty to protect others from an evil Army of Shadows?
Nom is an outsider at school. When she and Zithembe become friends, life still seems ̶ well ̶ a little ordinary. But when an army of monsters threatens their world, it’s all up to the two of them … and the start of a journey into the dreamworld on a quest that will change their lives.
Powers of the Knife is the first book in the Shadow Chasers trilogy. It’s an African fantasy adventure ̶ one part family saga, one part hero’s quest.
