Publisher's Summary

Tomi Adeyemi conjures a stunning world of dark magic and danger in her West African-inspired fantasy debut Children of Blood and Bone.
They killed my mother.They took our magic.They tried to bury us. Now we rise.
Zélie remembers when the soil of Orïsha hummed with magic. When different clans ruled - Burners igniting flames, Tiders beckoning waves, and Zélie’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 Zélie without a mother and her people without hope. Only a few people remain with the power to use magic, and they must remain hidden. 
Zélie 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, Zélie must learn to harness her powers and outrun the crown prince, who is hell-bent on eradicating magic for good. 
Danger lurks in Orïsha, where strange creatures prowl and vengeful spirits wait in the waters. Yet the greatest danger may be Zélie herself as she struggles to come to terms with the strength of her magic - and her growing feelings for an enemy.
The movie of Children of Blood and Bone is in development at Fox 2000/Temple Hill Productions with the incredible Karen Rosenfelt and Wyck Godfrey (Twilight, Maze Runner, The Fault in Our Stars) producing it.

Children of Blood and Bone

I am not an avid reader but I choose my sources of entertainment wisely. I am very pleased to have “read” this book (I used Audible). Frantic pace, terrific world-building, interesting character arcs and wonderful action-packed adventure. I was hooked and cannot wait for the sequels.

Great story but Yoruba Speaker please!

Great story. I really enjoyed the book but I can't understand why a Yoruba speaking person did not read the Yoruba parts of the book. I couldn't understand what Bahni was saying and this was very frustrating not to mention disruptive to the flow of the story. To get full applaud, please get a Yoruba speaker to read the Yoruba parts. Thank you.

Awesome story..

Awesome and engaging book. The narrator did a brilliant job taking me on the journey. I only wish the Yoruba words were pronounced properly. Everything else was great

struggled to finish

Well written, just didn't get drawn in by the characters or story. I can see why others may love it though. Just not my cup of tea unfortunately.
