Could he be wrong?
When Diondray Azur first discovered the sacred Book of Kammbi, he struggled to believe where his destiny might be leading him.
The ancient book foretold of a descendant who would come from one of the greatest leaders in the history of Kammbia, and bring about a restoration of peace and unity between the estranged North and South regions of the nation.
Even though evidence strongly pointed to it, Diondray refused to believe that he could be the one spoken of in the prophecy. But eventually, he could no longer deny the possibility.
As Diondray begins to embrace his calling, he soon realizes that others are not so quick to believe in him either. Despite his best efforts, the religious council that governs all of Northern Kammbia, in the city of Issabella, does not believe he is the one who will fulfill the prophecy. Frustrated by their lack of understanding and refusal to see any other way but their own, Diondray leaves the city of Issabella behind.
He is then summoned to the South for a chance to prove that he is indeed the one. Hoping that the leaders of the South will be more receptive to his message, Diondray sets out once more. Traveling with only two of his original five companions, he journeys to three of the main cities in Southern Kammbia.
Upon arrival, however, he quickly learns that the cities of the South are nothing like those he encountered in the North. The people are worldly and have completely different beliefs– if at all.
Struggling with the fact that no one wants to listen to him or heed the teachings of the sacred book, Diondray begins to question his own validity. He wonders if maybe he isn’t the one meant to fulfil the prophecy after all. However, his connection to a mysterious leopard provides a pathway for Diondray to connect to the people of Southern Kammbia.
Will Diondray succeed in his quest? Or will he be influenced by the people and culture of the Southern region and turn his back on fulfilling the prophecy altogether?
There is only one way to find out.
