Children of Blood and Bone: The OrÏsha Legacy (Children of OrÏsha) - Tomi Adeyemi

The world building so far is fantastic. I am loving all of the characters. Will say the flow is a bit bumpy jumping between Zelie, Amarie and Inan. I can do without Inan's POV. I think just focusing on Zelie and Amarie would have been enough for me, but no harm/no foul.


The discussion of colorism though via this book is so good. Dark skinned magic users being punished/ostracized by the lighter skin people in this fictional world.
