Children Of Blood And BoneFantasy
They killed my mother.
They took our magic.
They tried to bury us.
Now we rise.
Z?lie remembers when the soil of Or?sha hummed with magic. When different clans ruled – Burners igniting flames, Tiders beckoning waves, and Z?lie’s Reaper mother summoning forth souls.
But everything changed the night magic disappeared. Under the orders of a ruthless king, anyone with powers was targeted and killed, leaving Z?lie without a mother and her people without hope. Only a few people remain with the power to use magic, and they must remain hidden.
Z?lie is one such person. Now she has a chance to bring back magic to her people and strike against the monarchy. With the help of a rogue princess, Z?lie must learn to harness her powers and outrun the crown prince, who is hell-bent on eradicating magic for good.
Danger lurks in Or?sha, where strange creatures prowl, and vengeful spirits wait in the waters. Yet the greatest danger may be Z?lie herself as she struggles to come to terms with the strength of her magic – and her growing feelings for an enemy.
Tomi Adeyemi conjures a stunning world of dark magic and danger in her West African-inspired fantasy debut Children of Blood and Bone.
