"Meet Tomi Adeyemi--the new J.K. Rowling. (Yep, she's that good)."--Entertainment Weekly After battling the impossible, Zélie and Amari have finally succeeded in bringing magic back to the land of Orïsha. But the ritual was more powerful than they could've imagined, reigniting the powers of not only the maji, but of nobles with magic ancestry, too. Now, Zélie struggles to unite the maji in an Orïsha where the enemy is just as powerful as they are. But when the monarchy and military unite to keep control of Orïsha, Zélie must fight to secure Amari's right to the throne and protect the new maji from the monarchy's wrath. With civil war looming on the horizon, Zélie finds herself at a breaking point: she must discover a way to bring the kingdom together or watch as Orïsha tears itself apart. Children of Virtue and Vengeanceis the stunning sequel to Tomi Adeyemi'sNew York Times-bestselling debutChildren of Blood and Bone, the first book in the Legacy of Orïsha trilogy. Praise forChildren of Blood and Bone: "Poses thought-provoking questions about race, class and authority that hold up a warning mirror to our sharply divided society."-The New York Times "The next big thing in literatureandfilm."--Ebony "A fast-paced, excellently crafted hero's journey...populated with compelling and nuanced black characters."-NPR "A debut novel that is nearly impossible to put down."-USA Today… (mais)

I thought the previous book was a pretty darned good adventure, but this sequel takes it to a whole other level! At the finale of the previous book we are left with magic having returned to Orisha, but our group of heroes have become splintered as betrayals and deaths begin to make their struggles more challenging, so Adeyomi has set us up well to explore the magic system of the world she has built as well as the developing personalities of our main characters. Obviously the draw for most readers of fantasy are the unique worlds that the author creates through their storytelling, but Adeyomi uses this setting in a much more meaningful way to explore the politics of our current world as we see the struggle of minorities to make a place for themselves in a world that rejects them. Through the Maji’s struggle for independence and freedom from the rule of the throne we see the flaws in a broken system revealed as power corrupts even those with good intentions, and we see how the pain of loss leads to ever increasing violence on both sides as each is blinded by sorrow and vengeance. What strikes me most about this second story is how much each of our main characters has grown up, as they struggle to wield their power to make a positive difference in Orisha but are seemingly blocked at every turn. Just when we think that one final strike will end the war the story shifts as new truths are revealed and hidden motives come to light. At this point in the saga I wonder if Orisha will be able to find peace and heal itself, as neither side seems able to look past their suspicions and work towards a legitimate solution. We are left with Amari and Zelie trapped on what seems to be a slaver ship moving away from Orisha’s conflict, so we’ll see if removing some players from the game makes any difference or whether they will fight their way out of this latest conflict as well.

*puts on flame-retardant suit*

Ok, I get that people love this book, and the series it forms the center of. I even get *why* they love it. I want to love it, too. It's fantasy, it's epic, it's romantic(sorta), it's written by a black woman, and it's super-duper, Afro-pick with a fist, fufu and plantain, cocoa butter and respect your elders BLACK. Not just Black, Black and *feminine*. Lord knows we need more books and authors like this out here in these spec-fic streets and based on that alone, this got a pre-order and preliminary 3 star rating from me.

However none of that erases the fact that this is a dryly written, 90 chapter, by-the-numbers monstrosity that messily changes POV every 5 pages or so and is full of whiny teenage angst that leads to murder, death and mutilation for no real reason except that all the adults who show up are crazy and our POV characters generally have the relationship skills of pounded yam. The book doesn't get genuinely enjoyable to read until the last 20 chapters or so. Up to then I was just struggling through the bad prose thinking DEAR GOD THERE'S GOING TO BE ANOTHER BOOK WHY AND PLEASE STOP ADDING -AIRE TO ALL THE ANIMAL NAMES LIKE THAT'S SPECIAL IT'S JUST ANNOYING AHHHHH...

That said, read this anyway. Game of Thrones has even worse writing, and the land of Orisha will make a *much* better TV show when it happens. Read this, because we need to increase the presence of Africa and black people in our speculative collective consciousness and they don't all have to be genius, they just have to *be*. Then go read N.K. Jemisin, Nnedi Okorafor, Octavia Butler and Nalo Hopkinson because all Black women who are speculative fiction writers need love (and they are geniuses. ( )

So, wow. I won't spoil the ending, but I will say it left me reeling and frantically searching for the release date of the next book. If this book has a fault, it's that much of it is a series of battles and lesser skirmishes. The characters can barely catch their breath before plunging into another conflict, which certainly keeps the pace fast, but also means the characters spend a lot time fighting and not understanding each other. To be fair, I'm certain that's part of the author's point. This book was a great read and I will definitely be reading the sequel once it's available. ( )
