“I teach you to be warriors in the garden so you will never be gardeners in the war.”
Children of Blood and Bone follows the story of Zélie Adebola. A young girl who still remembers the thrumming of magic, she remembers a time when it flew with all its beauty and power; up to the day it all started to fall apart and magic vanished like a light-bulb suddenly going dark. Before it went away, Burners ignited flames, Tiders beckoned waves, and Zelie’s Reaper mother summoned forth souls. But it all changed that night, following the order of a ruthless king, Maji were turned to a target, murdered and executed brutally in front of their families to make an example on the streets of Orïsha, to nurture fear in the hearts of those who lived alongside them, to enforce obedience. That night, left Zélie without a mother to hold and her people with despair. Presented with a chance to fix it all, Zélie finds herself on a path to bring back the hope lost ages ago to her people.
