Children of Blood and Bone was one of my favorite fantasy novels of 2018, and I’ve eagerly awaited the sequel from the moment I finished it. Tomi Adeyemi is one of fantasy’s best new voices—the world building and characters are superbly drawn, gorgeously rendered, and very human: Zélie and Amari are brave, charismatic, at times afraid and unsure, but always willing to rise to the challenges thrown their way. I can’t wait to see where they go next!— Stuart
After battling the impossible, Z�lie and Amari have finally succeeded in bringing magic back to the land of Or�sha. But the ritual was more powerful than they could've imagined, reigniting the powers of not only the maji, but of nobles with magic ancestry, too.�Now, Z�lie struggles to unite the maji in an Or�sha where the enemy is just as powerful as they are. But when the monarchy and military unite to keep control of Or�sha, Z�lie must fight to secure Amari's right to the throne and protect the new maji from the monarchy's wrath. With civil war looming on the horizon, Z�lie finds herself at a breaking point: she must discover a way to bring the kingdom together or watch as Or�sha tears itself apart.
