There are those who oppose him, and they willneed the help of the shapeshifter Changer--Perhaps the Earth's oldest being-- to prevail.

But Changer has problems of his own: a wild daughter, Shahrazad--a free sperit, unchained and idomitable, testing the limits of her powers against new realities in a new world. And even the combined efforts of Athur, the Changer, and Shahrazad may notbe enough. For the fanatic master of diseaseis not only creature of legend who seeks to walk like a god among men.In the emergent Nigerian city of Monamona, a scourge once eradicated has resurfaced-a terrible disease reintroduced into the world by a fanatic who may or may not be athanor:Shopona, the onetime God of Smallpox, Conquering Africa with plague is only the first step in this madman's dream of power.
