They killed my mother.
They took our magic.
They tried to bury us.
Now we rise.
– 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 Reaper 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 strike against the monarchy. With the help of a rogue princess, Zélie must outwit and outrun the crown prince, who is hell-bent on eradicating magic for good.

Danger lurks in Orïsha, where snow leoponaires prowl and vengeful spirits wait in the waters. Yet the greatest danger may be Zélie herself as she struggles to control her powers and her growing feelings for an enemy.

Join us as we have a discussion centering around the New York Times #1 best-selling phenomenon, Children of Blood and Bone. The book takes on issues of injustice, discrimination, and the struggle for change, all of which are relevant to where we find ourselves in this moment. We look forward to imagining a better future together (plus, Children of Virtue and Vengeance is about to drop in December, so we’re getting ready.)

Read a Preview of Chapters 1-6:
