Wow! I just finished reading Tomi Adeyemi’s novel The Children of Blood and Bone. The story focuses on Zelie, a young girl who has silver hair, grey eyes, and the dark skin of a diviner – a group of people who has the possibility to hold magic in them but now it’s gone. People like Zelie are oppressed by King Saran, the ruler of Orisha fears them because at one time the Maji, diviners who have magic used their power to destroy.
This book is like The Lord of the Rings meets The Black Panther. It’s an epic journey that follows Zelie as she tries to bring the magic back to her people so that they can have the power to finally fight back. There are so many surprises , and twists and turns that I know your going to love this book because it really is a good as everyone says.
