Percy Jackson meets Black Panther: inspired by West African and Igbo history and mythology, this thrilling, action-packed sequel to Cameron Battle and the Hidden Kingdoms sees Cameron and his friends return to Chidani and continue their quest to save the world! Cameron's last visit to Chidani was full of discoveries: he met his ancestors, his power awoke and he stepped into his role as the last Descendant. It was life-changing. And Cameron is eager to return. He needs to find the last gift, the ring of immortality, in order to stop the queen's evil sister and he believes Chidani holds the key to saving his mother and learning what happened to his father. But he must have a plan first, and plans take time. As Cameron and his friends, Zion and Aliyah, start seventh grade, they encounter a bully, Vince, and it doesn't take them long to realise that there is more to Vince than meets the eye. He is possessed by a mmo and under this demonic force he steals The Book of Chidani from Cameron, opens a portal to Chidani and gets sucked into it in the process. Forced to return to Chidani sooner than they planned, Cameron and his crew meet more gods and goddesses, who are notorious for their riddles, and are faced with impossible challenges and threats at every turn. This won't be an easy journey, but the true path to greatness is worth it.
