Waiting on Wednesday: Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi
Publisher: Henry Holt Books for Young Readers
Publication date: 03/06/2018
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.
 
If the first six chapters are anything to go by, I feel like this book will be gold!  I can't wait! You can read the first 6 chapters via NetGalley here.

So this is my pick. What are you waiting for?
