'A book that shifted my life... Epic, game-changing, moving and brilliant' VIOLA DAVIS
'Will rewire the mind of whoever reads it... you don't emerge from the journey unaffected' NNEDI OKORAFOR
A PATTERNIST NOVEL: BOOK ONE
It begins when two immortals meet in an African forest.
Doro is an ancient spirit who, for thousands of years, has cultivated a small village of people in search of perfection. He steals from their bodies to sustain his own life. Doro fears no one - until he meets Anyanwu.
Anyanwu is like Doro and yet different. She uses her wisdom to help others, healing injuries, birthing tribes and shifting the shapes of her own body. Anyanwu feels no threat - until she meets Doro.
In an epic story of love and hate, Doro and Anyanwu chase each other across continents and centuries - a power struggle that echoes through generations. Together they will change the world.
