Children of Blood and Bone (Legacy of Orïsha, #1) by Tomi Adeyemi

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.

BOOK REVIEW: CHILDREN OF BLOOD AND BONE BY TOMI ADEYEMI

Initially, I was TERRIFIED to read Children of Blood and Bone. The combination of it's size and an epic high fantasy novel was very daunting to me, but I am so.

A thoroughly dissappointing read. Before i dive into this review, i'd just like to say that i did like the premise of this book. I liked the fact that Tomi wanted to explore Yoruba mythology, i also absolutely loved the fact that she wanted to put Nigeria not just as a place representing Africa as a whole but a country with it's unique culture and all that - she failed in that though , but hey at least she didn't do the whole Africa is a country thing. First of: Adeyemi had a chance really to pro. First of: Adeyemi had a chance really to properly explore yoruba mythology and you know just educate people but somewhere along the line everything started looking like a rebooted Netflix Version of your fave animie. Who is that? Then this Nigeria depicted in this book is so lazy.

Then one night, magic deserted them, and the magi were brutally murdered by a tyrannical king. A chance encounter with a rebel princess sends her on a dangerous journey that will give her the chance to restore magic — but the cost will be higher than she ever imagined. It does not disappoint. Rather than subverting them, Adeyemi revels in fantasy tropes, giving us princesses, family betrayals, power struggles and an epic world with a new system of magic to explore and enjoy. But it is the vibrantly drawn, west African-inspired setting that makes this unlike any fantasy readers will have encountered before.
