Description-

  • *The spectacular sequel to Audie Award Audiobook of the Year Children of Blood and Bone*
    A GOOD MORNING AMERICA BOOK CLUB PICK
    "Bhani Turpin exquisitely narrates the second book in this fantasy series, Legacy of Orïsha. Her steady pace and West African accent draw us into the story of Zélie, a Maji warrior, and Princess Amari—both of whom fight against a monarchy that threatens to destroy the people of Orïsha...A riveting audiobook!" — AudioFile Magazine, Earphones Award winner

    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 audiobook in the Legacy of Orïsha trilogy.
    Praise for Children of Blood and Bone:

    "[Narrator Bahni Turpin] excels at customizing her voice to capture the unique personalities of each character.... This excellent, refreshing performance of Adeyemi's exciting debut is recommended for all collections where fantasy is popular." -Booklist

  • Publisher's Weekly

    December 9, 2019
    This sequel to Children of Blood and Bone picks up three weeks after the clash that dispatched Zélie's father and brought loss to Orïsha's royal family. Zélie hoped that restoring magic to Orïsha would end the subjugation of its white-haired maji clans; regrettably, however, Zélie's ritual also triggered the latent abilities of nobles with maji ancestry, including Princess Amari and the tyrannical Queen Nehanda. These "tîtáns" need no incantations to wield magic, rendering them unspeakably powerful—and dangerously volatile. With a civil war brewing, Amari makes a bid for the crown, promising peace and equality; Nehanda enthrones another, however, and contrives to use an army of tîtáns to eradicate the maji. Meanwhile, maji rebels dubbed the Iyika aim to assassinate Orïsha's nobles and install Zélie as queen. Adeyemi's thrilling second Legacy of Orïsha novel ups the stakes and expands the series' mythology while extolling unity and illustrating the futility of hatred and retribution. Shoehorned romance and manufactured friction between protagonists aside, Adeyemi delivers a vivid, visceral tale studded with action and capped with a literary gut-punch. Ages 14–up. Agent: Alexandra Machinist and Hillary Jacobson, ICM Partners.

  • AudioFile Magazine Bhani Turpin exquisitely narrates the second book in this fantasy series, Legacy of Or�sha. Her steady pace and West African accent draw us into the story of Z�lie, a Maji warrior, and Princess Amari-- both of whom fight against a monarchy that threatens to destroy the people of Or�sha. Turpin manipulates her voice in a variety of ways to convey raw emotion in the characters who unfold this story. Just when conflict is about to subside, either Z�lie or Amari does something else to change the course of events. The listener is able to connect and sympathize with these two magical beings, even after they have made terrible decisions that produce violent consequences. They are relatable, overwhelmingly passionate, and humanly flawed. A riveting audiobook! T.E.C. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award � AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine
