After recovering from a spell that put her to sleep for 500 years, Malika is on the brink of yet another war. And this time, she has enemies she cannot predict, allies she refuses to trust, and a world she cannot understand. The enemy is the CREED, a growing domestic terrorist group responsible for a devastating attack on Malika’s former home. The ally is Fury, a masked speedster who knows more about Malika than she’s comfortable with. Removed 500 years from the time she remembers, can Malika find the courage to use her newfound power to save the descendants of her former people?
