Great. submitted by MadMonkeyZ on June 23, 2018, 2:58pm Here is a fresh take on young adult fantasy. With West African-inspired characters, magic, and setting, Children of Blood and Bone is non-stop action, enriched with themes that resonate in today’s social and political landscape: injustice, discrimination, and a struggle for change. Author Tomi Adeyemi’s debut novel is the start of what promises to be an epic, addictive new series.

Fantastic setting submitted by Jinxyluis on July 22, 2018, 4:15pm I'm so excited about the setting of this book. The culture and the depiction of magic were wonderful, as there is so much to unpack in the tension of people groups with and without magic as they clash with each other. The middle of this book dragged a little for me, especially with all the romantic moments that aren't in general my cup of tea, but the ending was really strong and I'll definitely be interested to read more in this series.

Wonderful submitted by purplekitty on August 7, 2018, 8:48pm This book was fantastic! Characters are written in a complex manner that allows their motivations to clear and as reasonable as can be expected. The setting is also beautifully created, drawing the reader into a fantastically crafted, timely, exciting fantasy world. There's action, but also tons of interactions between characters and character development - something that's all too frequently sacrificed in books with heavy quantities of action. Any fans of fantasy - and even beyond! - should be sure to read this wonderful book.

Blood and bone submitted by tbbrown76@yahoo.com on June 14, 2019, 4:05pm So, one of my students and Lat both suggested this book. It started out kind of slow and confusing. Then, it got really and very cool. I wanted another twenty chapters. Highly recommended.
