Default 'Children of Blood and Bone' by Tomi Adeyemi (Sa16+) [SPOILERS]


Welcome to The Book Seekers' Book of the Month for July 2020! If you don't know what Book of the Month is, there's more information here but, in a nutshell, it is a monthly event during which we all read the same book and discuss it here.
This discussion will be active until August 15th. Additionally, Mr Penumbra's 24-hour Bookstore's discussion thread will also remain active until July 15th.


This month we're reading Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi!


Age Rating | Sa16+
Genre | Fantasy
Summary from Goodreads | They killed my mother. They took our magic. They tried to bury us.

Now we rise.

Zélie Adebola remembers when the soil of Orďsha 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 Orďsha, 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.

I bought this book on April because it's 50% off and thank you for this BoTM because I haven't had a chance to read it.

I've started it, still on page 80s and my first thought it CoBaB has similar vibe with A Game of Thrones (although it's been years since I read GoT and still not finished yet).

This book is exactly the type of books I LOVE and speed right through. I have about 60 pages left and it is just so so good! This is my favorite genre - supernatural, science fiction, dystopian type stories. Anyways can't wait to start the discussion!

I..... Have difficulties to continue reading this book, still on chapter 30 and boy, it is somehow too slow for me sigh. I haven't read any books with >500 pages since Harry Potter, ngl.

But so far the supernatural things are quite interesting, even though sometimes I got lost and have to read them repeatedly especially the terms.

I finished this book last week and gave it one of my rare 5 star reviews I absolutely loved it and just got the second one this week and I'm excited to start it! I particularly liked how there were a few different character narrating, but only a handful of them, making it slightly easier to follow rather than try and see EVERYTHING from EVERYONE'S point of view. Excited to hear what you all thought!
