Monde intersecting the great Zambezi River was a peaceful sanctuary. Until... A mother, lioness is lost. The infamous 'IT' hunts Jasiri, her son over desert and mountain pass. A long face hidden by shadow. A mane of black and a mouth open like a hideous empty, cave. Decipherable only by four pointed canines, sharp and evil stained: the indomitable "IT" Jackals whisper of felines emerging from shadow lands. Largest, ever to pad the African savannah. Brave giraffes, hippos and baboons forge new ties to try to defeat the dark shadow holding sway over the lands. Each animal brings talents to the struggle. From the margins of an invisible victory springs hope.
