あらすじ・解説

Children of Virtue and Vengeance is the breathtaking second title in Tomi Adeyemi's YA fantasy trilogy, Legacy of Orïsha, following her groundbreaking, West African-inspired debut, Children of Blood and Bone.

After battling the impossible, Zélie and Amari have finally succeeded in bringing magic back to the land of Orïsha. But the ritual was more powerful than they imagined, reigniting the powers of not only the maji but also some nobles with magic ancestry. 

Now, Zélie struggles to unite the maji in an Orïsha where the enemy is just as strong and magical as they are. When Amari's mother forms an army of royals with newly awakened powers, Zélie fights to secure Amari's right to the throne and protect the new maji from the monarchy's wrath.  

But with civil war looming on the horizon, Zélie finds herself at a breaking point: she must find a way to bring the kingdom together or watch as Orïsha tears itself apart.

The book is great

Loved the story The narration was awful. Terrible “African” accent that sounded like a Russian accent sometimes. Mispronunciations of Yoruba words and places kind of puts you off. The narrator can either learn the right accent or just plain use an American accent and save us the trauma.

I love the story but the Narration?? Whew..

I love the story, and I will be buying the paperback version. However, it is undeniable that the narrator is an American putting on what they assume to be a Nigerian accent. I am west African and listening to this was painful. From speaking in the forced accent to the pronunciation of the words when speaking the native tongue. Please, can you select a Nigerian speaking narrator for the next instalment. Nonetheless amazing story and I love what Tomi Adeyemi brings to the reading world.

GOOD Character acting, BAD Yoruba pronounciation

The story plot lines as usual is well written by Tomi Adeyemi. Another brilliant hit I’m sure. I give credit to the Narrator for her ability to change the timbre and pitch of her voice for so many characters. And her delivery of sound effects is very well done and doesn’t sound fake or forced. It is obvious that this lady is an experienced voice narrator of a high caliber. However, as a Yoruba speaking Nigerian I could NOT make head or tail of any of her Yoruba . Apart from the accent which sounds South African instead of West African, her Yoruba is atrocious. My ears bled every time she pronounced Mama Agba as ‘aGGGG-BBA’. All the meaning for the incantations and even some of the conversations was completely lost as she desperately tried to string a series of incomprehensible sounds together. Please! please! please get someone else to at least say the Yoruba parts. It completely ruins the whole mood when you just hear random noises during a serious moment. It is disheartening that what can potentially be the introduction of Yoruba culture to the world on a massive scale, is soiled by the utter misrepresentation of our voices and language.

Sigh with a smile

I’ll start with sugar before salt. The book continues what was already a Fantastic story. The world of Orïsha and Magji and Cosidans and now titans is amazing. Bahni Turpin was yet again, exceptional in delivering a variety of characters and their intricacies to life. Now, the salt. I feel disappointed. There are parts of the story that feel very rushed. Zélie’s character goes through so much heartache and devastation in these two books, that I understand why Tomi made her character somewhat over fragile.... but after a while it got annoying. Zélie is supposed to be the warrior that galvanised all the maji to fight... yet 70% of the time she’s a sulky, petulant teen. I feel that the other leads matured well while she didn’t. The ending was just all wrong. I love Tomi Adeyemi’a writing and eagerly anticipate the 3rd installation.... I just hope she takes more time with it.

Loved it

I loved the first book and feared the second wouldn't be as good. Boy was I wrong. Not only did I love the development of each character. The twists and turns of the story had me gripped from the moment I started. Throughout I found myself experiencing a whole cocktail of emotions. If you lived the first one and you're a little conflicted as I was; don't be. You'll love it.

Brutal story told with mesmerizing prose

The author asks "what's the worst thing that can happen to these great individuals", and then ups the ante... It's a well written, engaging but not exactly relaxing read

Great sequel

Worth reading, I mean I topped up my credit just 3 days before renewal as I couldn't wait to see the conclusion. Loads of ups and downs in the journey of our heroes. A tale of blind spots and misunderstanding. It highlight the fact that those who hurt us also have been hurt before. Themes of corruption of power and the idea of the end justifying the means being explored. Without spoiling, I must say what a twist the end was. The performance of the first book can not be compared at all. the second books makes many references to the first book. Nevertheless some scene were very cinematographic whereas some made me reach for my hard copy to enjoy the literary work.

Slow but gripping

Though about magic, the deeper themes and emotions which run through this book grasp your attention but also your heart! I MUST know what happens next...the twists and turns never get boring and are definitely unpredictable!

Brilliant voice Actor

Bahni Turpin is a brilliant voice Actor Entertaining story, more light on themes than book 1. Still looking forward to the next instalment.
