She's the adopted daughter of the Angel of Death. Beware of her. Mind her. Death guards her like one of its own.

The day Fatima forgot her name, Death paid a visit. From here on in she would be known as Sankofa -a name that meant nothing to anyone but her, the only tie to her family and her past.

Her touch is death, and with a glance a town can fall. And she walks-alone, except for her fox companion-searching for the object that came from the sky and gave itself to her when the meteors fell and when she was yet unchanged; searching for answers.

But is there a greater purpose for Sankofa, now that Death is her constant companion?
