Children of Blood and Bone
Adeyemi’s West African-inspired fantasy debut creates a stunning world of magic and danger. In Zélie Adebola’s kingdom, evil King Saran cemented his grip on the throne by banishing magic from Orïsha. Her magi mother was killed by the king's guards leaving Zélie without a mother and her people without hope. But with the help of Saran’s kindhearted daughter, Princess Amari, Zélie has a chance to restore magic to Orïsha and activate a new generation of magi. The two, along with Zélie's brother, are on the run and must outwit crown Prince Inan who's in hot pursuit and determined to finish what his father started and destroy magic for good.
