Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi
Recommended for ages 12+
Zelie is learning to fight to protect her village from the evil king. Her people, the Maji, used to have magic to protect themselves; to protect the balance of power in the Kingdom, but no longer. Not since magic, and the gods that provided it, deserted them. Amari is a princess, daughter of the very king whose fear of the Maji instigates the brutal subjugation. It is she who escapes the stifling protocol and protections of the palace with a magical artifact in hand. Together Zelie and Amari must fulfill the prophecy that will restore magic to the land. But at what cost to their families, communities and all that they know, and is restoring magic even the right thing to do? Encompassing universal themes of racism, loyalty, friendship, trust and betrayal, this is a timeless and timely tale weaving African mythologies into a fantastic fantasy world.
