Ajani was an unusual person. Until this moment, he had never come into contact with non-human life forms. He had only seen the dead bodies of human beings and animals that were slaughtered for food at his village back in Mali. But now, here he was staring down a giant cat’s eyes! And these eyes belonged to a creature so powerful it could kill him with one swipe of its paw or by tearing out his throat! This is not how Ajani expected things to go when he finally set out on foot across Africa.
