Welcome to the world of SLAY. Kiera Johnson is the creator and game developer of a worldwide Black Panther-style virtual reality game called SLAY. Black gamers duel in a secret multiplayer Nubian online role-playing game. Kiera is a seventeen-year-old math tutor and honor student at Jefferson Academy where there are very few black students. Kiera’s gaming persona is a secret; not even her sister or boyfriend knows. When a Kansas City teen is murdered over a dispute in the SLAY world, her secret identity is threatened. A gamer troll accesses her game and threatens to sue Kiera for “anti-white discrimination.” Unless she agrees to a winner-takes-all battle, Kiera’s worlds are about to collide.
