Shuri Sets Out to Save Wakanda in New Original Black Panther Novel 'SHURI'

Read an excerpt from New York Times best-selling author Nic Stone!

Shuri is a genius, a master of science and technology, a skilled warrior, and a princess. Oh, as well as a teenager. And now she's starring in her own original Black Panther novel SHURI from New York Times best-selling author Nic Stone. NO BIG DEAL.

Shuri

The one-time Black Panther herself sets out on a quest to save her homeland of Wakanda. For centuries, the Chieftain of Wakanda (the Black Panther) has gained his powers through the juices of the Heart-Shaped Herb. Much like Vibranium, the Heart-Shaped Herb is essential to the survival and prosperity of Wakanda. But something is wrong. The plants are dying. No matter what the people of Wakanda do, they can’t save them. And their supply is running short. It’s up to Shuri to travel from Wakanda in order to discover what is killing the Herb, and how she can save it, in the first volume of this all-new, original adventure — SHURI: A BLACK PANTHER NOVEL — available everywhere books are sold next week on May 5.

Thanks to the folks over at Scholastic, you can preview an excerpt from the upcoming upper middle grade novel below:
