Children of Blood and Bone (Legacy of Orïsha, #1) Read Online Free - Tomi Adeyemi conjures a stunning world of dark magic and danger in her West African-inspired fantasy debut, perfect for fans of Leigh Bardugo and Sabaa Tahir.
Zélie Adebola remembers when the soil of Orïsha hummed with magic. Burners ignited flames, Tiders beckoned waves, and Zelie’s Reaper mother summoned forth souls.
But everything changed the night magic disappeared. Under the orders of a ruthless king, maji were targeted and killed, leaving Zélie without a mother and her people without hope.
Now, Zélie has one chance to bring back magic and strike against the monarchy. With the help of a rogue princess, Zélie must outwit and outrun the crown prince, who is hell-bent on eradicating magic for good.
Danger lurks in Orïsha, where snow leoponaires prowl and vengeful spirits wait in the waters. Yet the greatest danger may be Zélie herself as she struggles to control her powers—and her growing feelings for the enemy.

“No matter how much I crave peace, the gods have other plans.”
4 1/2 stars. Wow, I have had quite a week. I started Children of Blood and Bone last Thursday as I was going into labour (because, why not?). Normally, I would devour a book like this in a day or two, but those of you with kids will...

5 STARS! This is genuinely the greatest debut fantasy novel, greatest fantasy novel in general that I have read in a very long time. Initially, I was TERRIFIED to read Children of Blood and Bone. The combination of it’s size and an epic high fantasy novel was very daunting to me, but I am so happ...

THE HYPE IS REAL!
I always prefer to decide for myself if the new overhyped YA book is worth it... and I'm happy to say that this new Fantasy book totally was!
I loved the magic system, the world, the characters and cannot wait for the next book!
My only complain is with the romance. I hate romance....

But when I do, I think of rice.
When Mama was around, the hut always s...

I want to join Zélie and Amari’s squad badly.
When you’re a university student, it’s very hard to finish a 500-page book in less than two days and not be five assignments behind, especially this close to the end of the semester.
But here we are, with me still alive and breathing and on track, as i...

Children of Blood And Bone is such a rich and excellently built fantasy world my opinion is just: WOW. I also feel like this book is most definitely mega-hyped but worth it, ohhh so worth it. The writing is stunning, but we just need to all sit down in a bucket and admire the world building. And...

I didn't really like this book but no matter, it has served its purpose which was introducing me to Amari so thanks for that I guess

Full review to come!
In the meantime - THIS WAS AMAZING. Each of the characters goes on their own intriguing journeys throughout the story, and I enjoyed going along for the ride so much. The setting, magic, and characters were so vibrant and full of life.
I need the sequel, and I don't know what...
