Being gay and black in a racist, homophobic society may seem manageable. It’s been done before. Imagine that along with trying to hide the fact that you can shoot lightning from your fingertips. Sounds easy enough, right? Now let’s just top it all off the fact that the mythical beasts of The Consortium Army have pushed humans to brink of extinction, and you may be the only one capable of stopping.
After losing his home and most of his family to the war, nineteen-year-old Anik lives as a refugee in the city of Jhanai, one of the last three remaining human cities. And when he is beyond city limits with his secret boyfriend, Naias, he must expose his true self when they are ambushed by a party of goblin scouts. Revealing his greatest secret does nothing to help his relationship, and soon Anik is forced to flee from what is left of civilization to seek refuge in a dangerous town for people just like him.
Arriving in the town of Durem, Anik is enthralled by what seems to be a thriving society of super-powered individuals. Friendships are forged and bonds are created, but soon news arrives that the dark cloud of The Consortium is moving on Jhanai. Anik must to decide why he would actually consider saving a world that’s all but working against him.
