Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi, is a wild ride through some aspects of West African mythology. The characters are relatable, flawed, and grow with every major challenge faced. Themes of family and community are a driving force in this story, especially for the major characters; Zelie, Amari, Tzain and Inan.

Ms. Adeyemi has created a world that is rich and fascinating, as we are taken on a journey where each major character is made to face their personalities and actions. They also find answers about their history that will impact the choices they make. The supporting characters are also intriguing, and it would be great to see them in the future.

This book is not without its flaws, but they are few and far between, and thus, do not take anything away from the story.

We would recommend this book to lovers of fantasy, especially those who like some mythology thrown in.
