Waiting on Wednesday #37: Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi

Hi everyone! Welcome to another "Waiting on Wednesday" post (meme hosted by Breaking the Spine!). 

This week I am waiting on:

Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi
March 6th 2018, Henry Holt Books for Young Readers
YA Fantasy
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.
Um... WOW. Have you seen that cover?!?! It's so freaking gorgeous I don't even think there will be another one to top it in 2018. But cover aside, this book sounds amazing and I cannot wait to meet its characters & journey through Orïsha! Okay, to also fall for the enemy because the hate-to-lovers trope gives me life lol.

What are you waiting on this week? :)
