OH HOLY ….! The COVER! I honestly can say this is my top five cover loves of the year! It is so beautiful. I love everything from the typography to the beautiful young lady. I love how the colors work together.
I have heard from people who got a sampler of the book and they are loving what they have read so far and I’m so excited! This book is #ownvoices and I’m super excited.I cannot wait for March. It will be one good read.
Zélie Adebola remembers when the soil of Orïsha hummed with magic. Burners ignited flames, Tiders beckoned waves, and Zelie’s Reaper mother summoned forth souls.
But everything changed the night magic disappeared. Under the orders of a ruthless king, maji were targeted and killed, leaving Zélie without a mother and her people without hope.
Now, Zélie has one chance to bring back magic and strike against the monarchy. With the help of a rogue princess, Zélie must outwit and outrun the crown prince, who is hell-bent on eradicating magic for good.
Danger lurks in Orïsha, where snow leoponaires prowl and vengeful spirits wait in the waters. Yet the greatest danger may be Zélie herself as she struggles to control her powers — and her growing feelings for the enemy.
