Skyler Brade is an ordinary 15-year old kid born and raised in Anacostia, D.C., trying to begin his sophomore year in school and avoid trouble. He was born with a club foot and this lack of athletic ability, together with the seriousness with which he takes his studies, opens him to being ridiculed and bullied.

Unknown to Skyler, his Zulu ancestors, the amadlozi, have plans for him to take up an ancient magic talisman and become the latest incarnation of…the Lionman! A hero is needed and Skyler has the blood of kings. Together with the enigmatic British agent Sir Michael Baker, his brother-in-arms Ras Singh, South African diplomat John Bhekifa, and many others, Skyler is about to be plunged into a world of supernatural horror, political intrigue and a war against the oldest cult in the world.

And he will be granted powers and abilities far beyond his dreams…
