“Children of Blood and Bone” by Tomi Adeyemi was a fantastic book. The word choice was beautiful, adding so much depth in the magical world that Zelie, Inan, and Amari live in. The struggles of each character add so much to why the characters are who they are and why they’re trying so hard to accomplish their goals, and by any means possible. My favorite character in the book was Zelie, mostly because of how persistent she was in the book and how she never wanted to give up, and always accomplish goals in the right way, instead of messing it up like she does most of the time. Her determination makes her the character that she is, adding on to how to she is a well written protagonist. After reading this book it tells me the author, Tomi Adeyemi is a great author and I would read more of her books because this one was so good. I feel like the title of the book adds to the story because a main part of the story was the slaughter of the maji, and how blood was spilled and how magic was ultimately destroyed, the title prepares the reader for what they are about to read, that the backstory of the people is sad and depressing. I would give this book a 4 out of 5 stars because this book was beautifully written with the characters having a deep connection with each other, adding a more realistic effect of this fantasy.
