An ancient scroll carries a deadly curse
The last Vandal ruler in North Africa consults an oracle on how to defeat the invading Byzantine army. The oracle tells that a priestess cast a curse upon the Kingdom after a sacred scroll was stolen. In order to lift the curse, the scroll must be returned home. But the kingdom falls before the scroll is found and is lost forever, until Sam and Remi Fargo uncover clues as to its whereabouts.
The search is put on hold when the Fargos learn that supplies intended for their foundation's school have been stolen, and they travel to Nigeria to deliver new supplies themselves. But they run afoul of a band of robbers that takes Remi and several students hostage, and there are signs that the kidnapping is related to the missing scroll.
