Do you have to believe in destiny… to fulfill your own?
Diondray Azur never questioned his regular life. But everything changes when he learns that the true history of his family and his world isn’t what he was taught. When he hears of the Book of Kammbi and its ancient prophecy, he sets out on a quest for the truth.
Diondray doubts the prophecy, which says it can only be fulfilled by the descendent of a great leader. As the challenges on his journey mount, all signs point to him as the one with a prophetic destiny.
He’ll stop at nothing for the truth, but what will happen when he finds it?

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I received this book free through Goodreads First Reads. Imagine being told everything you were taught about the history of your family and your city wasn't true. Would you believe it easily? Would you believe it at all? This is what Diondray Azur faces in this book. This book was very interesting. I thought the world building was done very well, and that made it a very unique reading experience. Considering this is the first novel this author has wrote, I was very impressed. I wasn't bored to tears, I was kept interested the entire time, and I really liked the rich cultures and history the author created. Unfortunately, it's only 104 pages. I was looking forward to seeing how Diondray handles the rest. I'm not going to give any spoilers away, so that's all I'll say about that. The only problems I had with this book, I would have loved to hear more about some of the other characters. Aunt Maxina and Trayvonne in particular. The only other thing was the themily. For some reason every time Diondray gave a themily reading, I was expecting a long speech, and I got a few sentences. But that was my problem, not the books.
