Children of Virtue and Vengeance is the breathtaking second title in Tomi Adeyemi's YA fantasy trilogy, Legacy of Orïsha, following her ground-breaking, West African-inspired debut Children of Blood and Bone.

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 imagined, reigniting the powers of not only the maji but also some nobles with magic ancestry.

Now, Zélie struggles to unite the maji in an Orïsha where the enemy is just as strong and magical as they are. When Amari's mother forms an army of royals with newly awakened powers, Zélie fights to secure Amari's right to the throne and protect the new maji from the monarchy's wrath.

But with civil war looming on the horizon, Zélie finds herself at a breaking point: she must find a way to bring the kingdom together or watch as Orïsha tears itself apart.

Children of Virtue and Vengence

Children of Virtue and Vengeance is the sequel to Children of Blood and Bone written by Tomi Adeyemi.
In the second book of this series, Zelie, our protagonist, fights to unite her people, who are the Maji, people with magical abilities, as they must fight an enemy who is just as strong as they are.
This book contains several strong themes, such as power and systems of oppression, that convey a beautiful message of the importance of culture and friendship.

It was a well written book though I did expect more. “You carry all of us in your heart. We shall live in every breath you take. Every incantation you speak.”
superior to the first one! I had my doubts going in because there were a couple elements of book 1 that I didn't enjoy.
