Shuri est la soeur du roi d'une mystérieuse nation nichée au coeur de l'Afrique, le Wakanda, dont le dirigeant, surnommé Black Panther, est doté de pouvoirs surhumains. À treize ans à peine, c'est déjà un petit génie, une scientifique très douée, partiellement formée aux arts martiaux comme la plupart des membres de la famille royale.
Mais lorsque son frère, dont l'accession au trône est assez récente, lui réclame une nouvelle tenue de combat, elle peine à s'exécuter : impossible pour elle de manipuler correctement le vibranium, le métal le plus précieux du pays, capable de donner au tissu des propriétés extraordinaires. Pour se changer les idées, elle se laisse entraîner par sa meilleure amie à une étrange cérémonie. Là, Shuri a une vision à glacer le sang, et découvre que l'Herbe-Coeur, dont le roi tire ses pouvoirs, est en train de dépérir à un rythme alarmant.
« Wakanda pour toujours ! » comme disent les braves. Shuri n'a que cinq jours avant que la catastrophe ne frappe et va devoir quitter le pays pour trouver la clé de l'énigme... Le compte à rebours a commencé ! Suivez la plus attachante des héroïnes dans son combat pour aider son frère à conserver le trône et protéger leur pays.
Shuri, la soeur de Black Panther, doit retrouver des scientifiques prodiges disparues partout dans le monde !
Quelques mois à peine après avoir sauvé l'Herbe-Coeur - et le Wakanda tout entier -, Shuri commence enfin sa formation de Black Panther. Pour elle, désormais, c'est dojo, boulot, dodo ! Elle n'a qu'un seul objectif : prouver qu'elle est digne d'accompagner son frère, le roi, au prochain conclave international sur les technologies de pointe (son rêve !).
Mais c'était sans compter sur la découverte surprenante que fait le réseau de surveillance ultra-performant mis au point par Shuri. Aux quatre coins du monde disparaissent des dizaines d'adolescentes, toutes renommées pour leur génie dans divers domaines scientifiques. La liste s'allonge malheureusement chaque jour un peu plus... Pas de doute, la princesse va devoir jongler entre son entraînement et la résolution de ce nouveau mystère qui, bientôt, touche même le Wakanda.
Aidée par sa meilleure amie K'Marah, apprentie Dora Milaje, elle est bien décidée à intervenir : il n'y a plus de temps à perdre, ces jeunes prodiges sont en danger ! Embarquez à bord du Predator, le vaisseau conçu par Shuri en personne, pour suivre les deux camarades au-delà des frontières du Wakanda dans leur quête épique pour retrouver les disparues.
