Children of Virtue and Vengeance by Tomi Adeyemi

Unlike Midnight, which doesn’t require having read The Coldest Winter Ever, you do need to read the first book in this series, Children of Blood and Bones, to catch up. But it’s worth it. Tomi Adeyemi, in her debut novel, crafts a whole African world full of magic and tragedy. She is compared to J.K. Rowlings (Harry Potter) and her fantasy is steeped in rich African culture and tradition. In the second book in the Orisha trilogy, Adeyemi picks up after Zélie and Amari brought magic back to the land of Orïsha. I don’t want to give away too much for those who haven’t read Book 1. But it’s gets even juicier with Book 2. And did I mention there is a love story here, too? (There can’t be enough wholesome love for our young people to aspire to).
