Such a good book I m an adult Like grown I am also a fan of Harry Potter and Tahereh Mafi which I read as a child through college and last year respectively To be fair I buy books for my niece and read them uickly before I give them to her as gifts so we can discuss them together an activity I enjoy immensely As a black woman who loves the fantasy genre Adeyemi is my new hero for creating a world that draws its richness and depth from West Africa We have a class of oppressed people who have gifts that the oppressors are afraid of a theme so relevant to life today as a Diasporan in America I remember reading an article that spoke of implicit bias and the belief that some people have that black people are magical and have almost super human strength and that those were seen as reasons to justify fear of black bodies Adeyemi throws that on its head and I can t wait to read and see what happens next in Or sha and I can t wait to hear what my niece thinks of the book blackgirlmagic

Children of Blood and Bone is the first book of a planned series Legacy of Or sha It is an epic fantasy inspired by West African culture with all the elements you d expect A princess in trouble a next in line prince struggling to reconcile what he s taught from what is right or wrong a domineering king a people oppressed and magic in all its glory However this book turns it all into something uniue and powerfulThe POV shifts between three main characters Z lie Amari Inan The plot is fast paced and intense with only a few areas of let up so be prepared for a roller coaster of a read The story covers oppression genocide racial control and many other ills that ail the real world Having said that it doesn t read like an allegory but as true fantasyThe characters come to life and while they have moments of immaturity this only makes them real based on the ages they re supposed to be I would expect older teens to swing between childishness and adult maturity In a way this aspect lends the tale an element of coming of age as well as the other points mentioned From page one the characterisation and scene setting pulled me right inWhile the ending is a bit of a cliff hanger the storyline does round up a lot of loose threads However this is not a stand alone novel This is the first ever book I ve bought just because of its trailer That led me to s look inside feature and from there I never had a choice I can t wait for book 2 to be released in 2019 I can t recommend it highly enough
