Can’t Wait Wednesday – Spotlight on CHILDREN OF BLOOD AND BONE


“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about.  It is a meme that I have  loved participating in for over a year now, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll just be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is CHILDREN OF BLOOD AND BONE by Tomi Adeyemi.  I fell in love with the gorgeous cover for this book as soon as I saw it, but then I read the synopsis and became even more interested in reading it.  I’m intrigued by the idea of what happens to a magical land when the magic suddenly disappears and also by the idea that main character Zélie will work together with a rogue princess to get the magic back.  It just sounds so exciting and intense!



Publication Date:   March 6, 2018


From Goodreads:

Zélie Adebola remembers when the soil of Orïsha 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 targeted and 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 Orïsha, 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 the enemy.


I’d love to hear what upcoming book releases you’re waiting on this Wednesday? Leave me your link in the comments below and I’ll stop by and check out your CWW selection for this week. 🙂

    Oh, what an interesting concept! I have never read anything related to African magic before. And this author is new to me. So I’m adding this one to my TBR. That cover ROCKS, too! Thanks for sharing! <3 🙂
