If I had to use two words to describe this book they would be "overly dramatic" and this, I find, is a common pitfall of many books aimed at the young adult.

The author built a very interesting and original world (how many more medieval settings do we need?) based, I believe, on western African culture. This was probably the best part of the whole book. I thought maybe a small glossary may have been helpful.

As for the rest, the development of the characters was okay but I started to get annoyed with the extreme expressions of emotions throughout the book. The characters are soooooooooooooooo in love, soooooooooooooooo scared, soooooooooooooo self-doubting that after a while, I just wanted to strangle some of them. More nuance would have been better.

The plot was a typical quest which was okay but I finished thebook not knowing how everything ended. Did they succeed or didn't they? I don't know and that, for me, is so annoying. Too bad, a lot of potential was wasted in this book and I won't continue the series. ( )

I liked this. There was a lot of running around in circles and rethinking everything.

I'm a little frustrated that it is clearly the beginning of a series. I have enough of those going. I'm not sure I want to add another one to my collection. ( )

Here's my review: https://youtu.be/wmcFjoTRLbQ

If this hadn’t been so hyped I would have liked it more. I can’t get over my disappointment. I have a review written out already and will film it when I get home. Should come out the week after my review for the Jurassic World book. ( )

Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi is the first book in the Legacy of Orïsha series. Zélie, a diviner, her brother Tzain, and princess Amari go on a quest to bring magic back to their country. This is an incredible debut novel. The fantasy world is based in Nigerian mythology and it’s so imaginative and intriguing. The book tackles themes of race and class inequality and state brutality, all wrapped up in an engrossing story. In the author’s note, Adeyemi sad ‘if you cried for [spoilers], cry for innocent children like Jordan Edwards, Tamir Rice and Aiyana Stanley-Jones.’ If you haven’t read this novel yet, I really encourage you to. I have the sequel as an audiobook and I’m really looking forward to reading it. ( )

This was so beautifully written. I fell in love with the characters and am so excited to continue to follow their journey with the next book! ( )

Digesting volumes of brutal and downtrodden images can be dangerous. It can lead to despair, paralysis, and/or self-fulfilling prophecies of further demise. Millions of people are ordinarily numb to the fact that hyper-violence and wretched Africanized worlds are hallmarks of modern media (esp. Hollywood), and accept it wholesale. Remarkably though, Adeyemi inserts a critical lifeline into this abyss–the concept that the Gods of one’s own ancestors (in this case the Orisha) provide salvation unlike any other.

If a “Black Lives Matter–inspired fantasy novel” sounds like an ungainly hybrid—a pitch gone wrong—think again... The creator of a mythical land called Orïsha, Adeyemi taps into a rich imaginative lineage as she weaves West African mythology into a bespoke world that resonates with our own.

I try not to think of her.
But when I do, I think of rice.
When mama was around, the hut always smelled of jollof rice.
I think about the way her dark skin glowed like the summer sun, the way her smile made Baba come alive. The way her white hair fuzzed and coiled, an untamed crown that breathed and thrived.
I hear the myths she would tell me at night. Tzain's laughter when they played agbon in the park.
Baba's cries as the soldiers wrapped a chain around her neck. Her screams as they dragged her into the dark.
The incantations that spewed from her mouth like lava. The magic of death that led her astray.
I think about the way her corpse hung from that tree.
I think about the king who took her away.
