The Leafborne Dragon
The Dragonborne Cycle: Book 1
In a world of endless trees, Mayowe finds himself alone. The only black man in a sea of white faces, he struggles to come to grips with the fact that he may be the most powerful gravician in the entire world. But he is repeatedly cast out and left for dead, left to rot and worse. With the aid of Kiri, a mysterious fox made of light, Mayowe meets the Iktomi, a strange and mythical race who ride giant spiders and kidnap people during the night. Mayowe has finally found his place among them—but the Iktomi are not what they seem. They have a far worse plan for the world than anyone has ever dreamed.
