Book Trailer Thursday: CHILDREN OF BLOOD AND BONE

Tomi Adeyemi’s debut novel, which already has a movie deal in the works, is a feast for fantasy lovers. A world stripped of magic, a people feared and oppressed, and a ruthless king create the foundation for Zélie’s story. Her quest to avenge her mother’s death and return magic to her people will keep readers enraptured with what Booklist reviewer Sarah Hunter describes as “cinematic pacing, alternating viewpoints, and well-choreographed action,” in her starred review.

Through Children of Blood and Bone (Holt), Adeyemi introduces a world rich in culture and mythos, drawing inspiration from West African gods and goddesses. This trilogy opener has already gained critical acclaim, and readers will be anxious for the next installment.
