Description


From Nigerian-American author Tomi Adeyemi comes Children of Blood and Bone the highly-anticipated introduction to a YA fantasy trilogy set in West Africa. In this riveting audiobook, Adeyemi conjures a stunning world of dark magic and danger, perfect for fans of expansive narratives and spellbinding prose.

They killed my mother.
They took our magic.
They tried to bury us.

Now we rise.

Zelie Adebola remembers when the soil of Orisha hummed with magic. Burners ignited flames, Tiders beckoned waves, and Zelie's Reaper mother summoned forth souls.
But everything changed the night magic disappeared. Under the orders of a ruthless king, maji were killed, leaving Zelie without a mother and her people without hope.

Now Zelie has one chance to bring back magic and strike against the monarchy. With the help of a rogue princess, Zelie must outwit and outrun the crown prince, who is hell-bent on eradicating magic for good.
Danger lurks in Orisha, where snow leoponaires prowl and vengeful spirits wait in the waters. Yet the greatest danger may be Zelie herself as she struggles to control her powers--and her growing feelings for an enemy.

This unforgettable audiobook will leave listeners anxious for both the next installment -- and the major motion picture coming soon from 20th Century Fox.

"The next big thing in literature and film."--Ebony

"One of the biggest young adult fiction debut book deals of the year. Aside from a compelling plot and a strong-willed heroine as the protagonist, the book deals with larger themes, like race and power, that are being discussed in real time."--Teen Vogue

"A remarkable achievement."--Campus Lately

"Tomi Adeyemi is about to take both the literature and film world by storm."--Jet
