Notes From Your Bookseller

The massively anticipated sequel to Children of Blood and Bone, a book that shook the entire fantasy genre in all the best ways. The adventures of Zélie and Amari continue with in-fighting threatening the land of Orïsha. Drawing from Nigerian mythology, the meaningful themes of race and societal divides continue to elevate this series.

An Instant #1 New York Times Bestseller


"Adeyemi has sparked magic once again." —The New York Times

The stunning sequel to the worldwide phenomenon Children of Blood and Bone is now available in this deluxe paperback edition with gorgeous spray-painted and stenciled edges and an exclusive excerpt of the earth-shaking Children of Anguish and Anarchy.

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 Vengeance is the stunning sequel to Tomi Adeyemi's New York Times-bestselling debut Children of Blood and Bone, the first book in the Legacy of Orïsha trilogy.

Praise for Children of Virtue and Vengeance:

“Electrifying . . . With this second book Adeyemi brings a new maturity and depth to the series. Her characters are no longer underdogs on a hero’s journey to return magic―now they are leaders who are suffering from the consequences and trauma of their previous quest.” ―The New York Times

“Like its predecessor, Children of Virtue and Vengeance is fast-paced and unafraid to ask tough questions about the cyclical nature of oppression and the systems that enforce it.” ―TIME

“Relentless even beyond its finish, this is a sure-fire hit.” ―Booklist, starred review
