*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 Orisha. Her steady pace and West African accent draw us into the story of Zelie, a Maji warrior, and Princess Amari--both of whom fight against a monarchy that threatens to destroy the people of Orisha...A riveting audiobook!" — AudioFile Magazine, Earphones Award winner
After battling the impossible, Zelie and Amari have finally succeeded in bringing magic back to the land of Orisha. 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, Zelie struggles to unite the maji in an Orisha where the enemy is just as powerful as they are. But when the monarchy and military unite to keep control of Orisha, Zelie 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, Zelie finds herself at a breaking point: she must discover a way to bring the kingdom together or watch as Orisha 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 Orisha 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
