Children of Blood and Bone (Legacy of Orisha)

Children of Blood and Bone (Legacy of Orisha)

"This book left my entire body shaking and electrified—with excitement, with sorrow, with anticipation. I can think of no other book that has left me so physically raw, ready to tear my way through every obstacle that presents itself. Zélie is a warrior, a goddess-daughter, a spitfire. She's the fantasy heroine I've been clawing my way through novels, television, and film to find. And she's more than I could have imagined, or hoped for, or written into existence myself. 

Tomi Adeyemi transported me to a world where coily, kinky hair is literally magical. Where dark skin is divine. Where these things are beautiful. I am so glad to have been along for the ride."

With four starred reviews, Tomi Adeyemi’s West African-inspired fantasy debut conjures a world of magic and danger, perfect for fans of Leigh Bardugo and Sabaa Tahir. They killed my mother. They took our magic. They tried to bury us. Now we rise. Zélie Adebola remembers when the soil of Orïsha hummed with magic. Burners ignited flames, Tiders beckoned waves, and Zélie’s Reaper mother summoned forth souls. But everything changed the night magic disappeared. Under the orders of a ruthless king, maji were killed, leaving Zélie without a mother and her people without hope. Now Zélie has one chance to bring back magic and strike against the monarchy. With the help of a rogue princess, Zélie must outwit and outrun the crown prince, who is hell-bent on eradicating magic for good. Danger lurks in Orïsha, where snow leoponaires prowl and vengeful spirits wait in the waters. Yet the greatest danger may be Zélie herself as she struggles to control her powers and her growing feelings for an enemy. "A phenomenon." ?Entertainment Weekly “The epic I’ve been waiting for.” ?New York Times-bestselling author Marie Lu “You will be changed. You will be ready to rise up and reclaim your own magic!” ?New York Times-bestselling author Dhonielle Clayton “The next big thing in literature and film.” ?Ebony “One of the biggest young adult fiction debut book deals of theyear.” ?Teen Vogue
