The most anticipated fantasy of the year, soon to be a major motion picture

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 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 an enemy.

    In a land where people with the ability to wield magic were murdered under the orders of a ruthless king, their children remember with vengeance burning in their hearts and magic running through their veins, yearning to be released. When one such child, Zelie, gets a chance to restore magic to Orisha for good she embarks on a journey that will change the course of her life and her people’s forever.

    Children of Blood and Bone is one of those rare books that deserves the hype it’s generated - it really is THAT good. This is a story rich with mythic detail and bursting at the seams, with characters who are complex and wonderful. More than anything, this book is an achievement in spectacular worldbuilding - I felt completely drawn into the world of Orisha, with its different clans and forms of magic, in ways that I could never have imagined. Great things are going to come from this trilogy, so don't miss this phenomenal book!
