Children of Blood and Bone: The OrÏsha Legacy (Children of OrÏsha) - Tomi Adeyemi

The Legacy of Orisha, Book 1

I Picked Up This Book Because: I had to read at least one super hyped book of 2018.

The Characters:

Zélie Adebola:
Zane Adebola, Amari, Amari’s brother (I can’t remember his name right now)

The Story:

Zelie and her crew go on a hell of an adventure to restore magic to her people and it’s a great story. My only beef is why do these “great” stories always seem to hinge on the pain, degradation and/or genocide of a people. Those situations always leave me with conflicted feeling of how “great” a book is. So much death and destruction. However I still rate this very highly because it is so amazing the work the author put into the stories. The strong characters she created were amazing and I found myself completely engrossed in the story at times.
