“With a fantasy world rich in history and power struggles, Children of Blood and Bone is the epic I’ve been waiting for”-Author Marie Lu ✊🏿✊🏿✊🏿✊🏿/5..More like 4.1 fist pumps
4.1 because I hated the crap out of Inan and Zel’s so called relationship.It was too rushed and felt forced.If there was a build up to it, I wouldve been here for it.I’m actually glad Tomi offed him lol.I’m actually here for the possibility of Roen and Zel being together. Anyways, I enjoyed this novel.A first time author and at her young age, Tomi did exceptional work with this one.The Orisha folklore pulled me in but I stayed for the well paced writing, action scenes and overall display of the Yoruba culture.This type of display of African culture, African perspective, and African heritage is the kind of content I need to see in novels.This new generation of African authors are killing it. Overall, Tomi’s writing lulls you in.The action scenes are well-developed and the incorporation of Yoruba and Orishas made me stay.Be prepared for some eye tolling at Inan and Zel though.Then again this is YA genre so some maybe over the moon for them.
