Don't miss the book Entertainment Weekly calls "a phenomenon." Tomi Adeyemi's Children of Blood and Bone conjures a stunning world of dark magic and danger in her #1 New York Times bestselling West African-inspired young adult fantasy debut.
They killed my mother.
They took our magic.
They tried to bury us.
Now we rise.
Z�lie Adebola remembers when the soil of Or�sha hummed with magic. Burners ignited flames, Tiders beckoned waves, and Z�lie's Reaper mother summoned forth souls.
But everything changed the night magic disappeared. Under the orders of a ruthless king, maji were killed, leaving Z�lie without a mother and her people without hope.
Now Z�lie has one chance to bring back magic and strike against the monarchy. With the help of a rogue princess, Z�lie must outwit and outrun the crown prince, who is hell-bent on eradicating magic for good.
Danger lurks in Or�sha, where snow leoponaires prowl and vengeful spirits wait in the waters. Yet the greatest danger may be Z�lie herself as she struggles to control her powers--and her growing feelings for an enemy.Praise for Children of Blood and Bone
