"After Zélie and Amari bring magic back to the land of Orïsha, the monarchy and military unite to keep control of Orïsha, forcing Zélie to fight to secure Amari's right to the throne and protect the new maji from the monarchy's wrath." -- (Source of summary not specified)
Zélie and Amari have succeeded in bringing magic back to the land of Orïsha, but the ritual was more powerful than they could've imagined. It has reignited 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. With civil war looming on the horizon, Zélie must discover a way to bring the kingdom together--or watch as Orïsha tears itself apart. -- adapted from jacket

*Starred Review* After ZÃ©lie and Amari successfully completed the ritual that restored magic to magic-wielding majis, they soon find that they weren't the only ones bestowed with powers as a result. Some nobles have developed powers, too, andâironically enoughâthey're building an army to carry out the legacy of King Saran and eliminate majis by any means necessary. Led by Prince Inan, Amari's big brother and ZÃ©lie's toxic yet electrifying love interest, the nobles wage a war against the Iyika, a group of maji rebels, testing the strength of blood, loyalty, magic, and love. Adeyemi's propulsive writing will have readers aching for resolve as twists and turns hit unscrupulously and without pause. While the first installment builds the narrating characters' foundations and familiarizes readers with the Yoruba orÃ¯shas, this follow-up gets into their psyches and unleashes the power of the deities and their respective maji as they fight for claim of OrÃ¯sha. From the beginning, Adeyemi has hinted that the fight for OrÃ¯sha would be won by either the monarchy or the maji, a political reality that will likely be all too familiar to today's readers. Terrifyingly enough, however, this sequel seems to ask: What if neither wins? Relentless even beyond its finish, this is a sure-fire hit. Endpapers include maps of OrÃ¯sha, which will delight those looking for a little extra to color the reading experience.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Children of Blood and Bone (2018) was a runaway hit, and fans of the first book have been waiting with bated breath for this one. Definitely have more than one on hand. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
