Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi

Zélie Adebola remembers when the soil of Orïsha hummed with magic. Burners ignited flames, Tiders beckoned waves, and Zélie’s mother summoned forth souls. But everything changed the night magic disappeared. Under the orders of a ruthless king, maji were killed, leaving Zélie without a mother and her people without hope. Now Zélie has one chance to bring back magic and with the help of a rogue princes, she has to outwit and outrun the crown prince, who is hell-bent on eradicating magic for good.

“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
