Overview

A GOOD MORNING AMERICA BOOK CLUB PICK

“Meet Tomi Adeyemi—the new J.K. Rowling. (Yep, she’s that good).” —Entertainment Weekly

After battling the impossible, Zélie and Amari have finally succeeded in bringing magic back to the land of Orïsha. 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, Zélie struggles to unite the maji in an Orïsha where the enemy is just as powerful as they are. But when the monarchy and military unite to keep control of Orïsha, Zélie 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, Zélie finds herself at a breaking point: she must discover a way to bring the kingdom together or watch as Orïsha tears itself apart.

Children of Virtue and Vengeance is the stunning sequel to Tomi Adeyemi's New York Times-bestselling debut Children of Blood and Bone, the first book in the Legacy of Orïsha trilogy.

Praise for Children of Blood and Bone:

“Poses thought-provoking questions about race, class and authority that hold up a warning mirror to our sharply divided society.” –The New York Times

This book is part two of the original novel.It is full of daring battles between the monarchy and poor residents of the country.The battles are fought with magic, each side having it's own type of magic they battle with.in between the the fighting there are on going love relationships of the main characters. The novel has rich descriptions of the small towns and big cities. no horses here, the characters tame and ride huge jungle animals while traveling.A fun exciting novel, similar to Tolken's "Lord Of the Rings".
