DNF.

I made it about halfway through this book before deciding to abandon it. I was bored. The characters didn't feel like they were going anywhere and the adventure seemed frivolous. I think the unfamiliar West-African roots of the mythology and accent of the reader (I did the audiobook) kept me engaged far longer than I would have been normally. I thought it was hiding something deeper and more interesting, but at its heart this feels like a rather generic Y/A fantasy. ( )

I heard so much hype around this book for over a year. It won a Goodreads Award. It won a Nebula. It was put up for a Hugo this year. Over and over and over I heard that this book was beautiful and amazing and I kept feeling guilty for not having read it yet, when finally my school book club decreed we were reading it for the kids for December (as well as the sequel in early 2020).

I really loved this book until almost exactly the 63% mark. I loved everything about the characters who were set up, the world it was describing, the horror past and the dark, deep, drive for a brighter future. I love the families of brothers and sisters on each side, so very different, trying to pick their ways through who they were as singular people, as family members to each other, and then as 'people' in more global sense (both religiously and politically).

At the 63% mark, though, it suddenly shifts entirely in about a 2-3 day period where people go from hating each other and wanting to stab their enemies to claiming to be deeply in love, and having wanted 'to hold [the other person]' forever now. Then there's this extra-long party that suddenly happens in the middle of a handful of days countdown to D-Day to Save Magic, that makes no sense why they stopped for, and even less sense why they suddenly panic the next day about it.

The main romance does not have any growth lead-up, and I honestly loved the girl's pillow talk midnight as an example of how one does risky growth with someone as the best display of it in this book. ( )

This book was utterly amazing. I borrowed this book through Libby, and I am so glad I did. I read Children of Blood and Bone as a way to give myself a break from all the history reading I do (both nonfiction and fiction). Tomi Adeyemi does an amazing job with weaving this story together, and it was beautifully told. Once I finished it and returned my loan, I obviously had to immediately borrow the second book, Children of Virtue and Vengence, which I am so excited to get into. ( )

You crushed us to build your monarchy on the backs of our blood and bone. Your mistake wasn't keeping us alive. it was thinking we'd never fight back.

[b:Children of Blood and Bone|34728667|Children of Blood and Bone (Legacy of Orïsha, #1)|Tomi Adeyemi|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1516127989i/34728667._SX50_.jpg|55911580] is a rather good book. You have a West African world one generation removed from a genocide which managed to take magic from the world. Radically oppressed former magic users with pockets of resistance here and there--and a main character tossed headfirst into the struggle to return their power.

The worldbuilding is neat. It's got a West African feel, which isn't something I've read overly much about. I can't really speak to how accurate it would be someone from Nigera (on which Orïsha is fairly heavily based), but it has a different enough feel to appeal.

They wear their secrets like glittering diamonds, embroidery woven through their lavish buba tops and wrapped iro skirts. Their lies and lily-scented perfumes taint the honeyed aroma of sweet cakes I am no longer allowed to eat.

The magic is interesting enough, even if at the core it's a fairly standard elemental/class based magic system with a number of different schools each with their own focus. The stronger than you often see ties to religion and powers coming from gods/prayers/belief is an interesting twist, as is magic failing because of something men did to that same connection is pretty cool. It makes everything feel a bit more organic than most over organized magic systems like it.

As a kid, I once watched Baba haul Tzain from the depths of a lake, ripping him from the seaweed that had trapped him underwater. He pumped on his fragile chest, but when Baba failed to make him breathe, it was Mama and her magic who saved him. She risked everything, violating maji law to call on the forbidden powers in her blood. She wove her incantations into Tzain like a thread, pulling him back to life with the magic of the dead.

The main downside I had with the book is that the main characters feel like teenagers. I'm not sure how old they're supposed to be--for all I know, they are actually teens--but it's fairly annoying how often they're absolutely sure of a course of action, despite it being a completely terrible idea. All based on what feels like a lack of experience with the world. And then on top of that, exemplifying it, is the romances between various pairs of characters. They flare up with the intensity and suddenness of youth, based on little really between the various characters other than proximity and certain life or death situations. It feels weird and forced and not really necessary to the story.

Characterwise, I liked Zélie and Amari fairly well, although Amari spent most of the book not having much of a home. They were the sorts of heroines I like to see in a book. Inan... was at least a well done character, thoroughly morally conflicted and going back and forth, trying to serve two masters--which of course doesn't go well. Tzain... we didn't get enough of him. He's mostly frustrating because he can't understand what the rest are going through as directly. The King (Amari and Inan's father)... oy. I want to know what happened to him to twist him so thoroughly. He's dark enough to be easy to hate, but there are just enough hints about what drives him... Oy.

Overall, I greatly enjoyed this book. And with an ending quite so O.o-inducing as that, I'm very curious to see what happens next. We'll just have to wait a few months more.

Orïsha is a country where magic used to roam. The kosidán, those without magic, were afraid of the maji’s power, and there was conflict. Then Saran, an overly zealous king, ordered all of the maji killed, sparing the ibawi (those who cannot yet do magic but will be able to once they turn 13.) The protagonist Zélie is labeled a maggot: a derogatory term for Divîners, those who were born with white hair and the ability to do magic (although magic has been gone for 11 years). Then, she touches a scroll in the hands of a fleeing criminal, who turns out to be Amari, the crown princess. Zélie returns to her home to find her father and brother, Tzain. However, the crown prince Inani leads a raid that results in the village being razed, sending Zélie, Amari and Tzain off to find two other relics to return magic to the world. They are chased by Inani, the Admiral, and soldiers until Inani's secret is revealed and he seems to fall for Zélie while Amari and Tzain conveniently pair off. I thought the love story was overblown. However, lots of epic battles, magic and Nigerian (Yoruban) mythology ensue. Nailah, Zélie’s Lionaire, is awesome. ( )

Digesting volumes of brutal and downtrodden images can be dangerous. It can lead to despair, paralysis, and/or self-fulfilling prophecies of further demise. Millions of people are ordinarily numb to the fact that hyper-violence and wretched Africanized worlds are hallmarks of modern media (esp. Hollywood), and accept it wholesale. Remarkably though, Adeyemi inserts a critical lifeline into this abyss–the concept that the Gods of one’s own ancestors (in this case the Orisha) provide salvation unlike any other.

If a “Black Lives Matter–inspired fantasy novel” sounds like an ungainly hybrid—a pitch gone wrong—think again... The creator of a mythical land called Orïsha, Adeyemi taps into a rich imaginative lineage as she weaves West African mythology into a bespoke world that resonates with our own.

I try not to think of her.
But when I do, I think of rice.
When mama was around, the hut always smelled of jollof rice.
I think about the way her dark skin glowed like the summer sun, the way her smile made Baba come alive. The way her white hair fuzzed and coiled, an untamed crown that breathed and thrived.
I hear the myths she would tell me at night. Tzain's laughter when they played agbon in the park.
Baba's cries as the soldiers wrapped a chain around her neck. Her screams as they dragged her into the dark.
The incantations that spewed from her mouth like lava. The magic of death that led her astray.
I think about the way her corpse hung from that tree.
I think about the king who took her away.
