Author: Tomi Adeyemi
Genre: YA, Fantasy
Publication Date: March 18, 2018
Zélie Adebola remembers when the soil of Orïsha hummed with magic. Burners ignited flames, Tiders beckoned waves, and Zelie’s Reaper mother summoned forth souls.
But everything changed the night magic disappeared. Under the orders of a ruthless king, maji were targeted and 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 the enemy.
I received 6 chapter so, this is just a partial review. And from what I have read so far, one can understand the hype for this book. Children of Blood and Bone is one of this year’s most highly anticipated book in the YA genre…and it’s good.
Let’s be honest here ok? There is only so much I can ‘review’ considering that I’ve read so little… only 6 chapters… but that alone has reignited my anticipation for reading this book. 6 chapters in and it’s jam packed with EVERYTHING!!! It surpasses everything I wanted this book to be…How is that even possible?!
I can’t wait to read the rest…I highly recommend you to add Children of Blood and Bone to your TBR list…
PS: I know we aren’t suppose to judge a book by it’s cover but come on! Look at that?! Won’t you want to buy that?!!
