“Our club has not yet had a YA fantasy read. Since I am too scared to ask for their opinion on my favorite YA fantasy book of all time (do not ask me, I will only share this in confidence), I started to look for alternatives. I devoured Children of Blood and Bone shortly before it was chosen as Jimmy Fallon’s inaugural summer book club pick and I knew we had to talk about this one. The mythology and world-building was top-notch so I know we’ll have tons to dissect.” -- Izabel
