Book: Children of Blood and Bone (Legacy of Orïsha #1)
Author: Tomi Adeyemi
Summary: 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.
OH MY GOD.
I have so many feelings about reading this one. I mean, first of all, thank you @ the amazing publisher for letting me read this baby early aka, binge in a night and wake up with a totally worth it book hangover. Second of all, I MEAN, THIS BOOK.
