A GOOD MORNING AMERICA BOOK CLUB PICK

"Meet Tomi Adeyemi--the new J.K. Rowling. (Yep, she's that good)." --Entertainment Weekly

After battling the impossible, Z lie and Amari have finally succeeded in bringing magic back to the land of Or sha. 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, Z lie struggles to unite the maji in an Or sha where the enemy is just as powerful as they are. But when the monarchy and military unite to keep control of Or sha, Z lie 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, Z lie finds herself at a breaking point: she must discover a way to bring the kingdom together or watch as Or sha 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 book in the Legacy of Or sha trilogy.

Praise for Children of Blood and Bone:

"Poses thought-provoking questions about race, class and authority that hold up a warning mirror to our sharply divided society." -The New York Times
