Review: Children of Blood & Bone

My rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️.5/5

The writing in this book screamed perfection. But the story not so much, I am disappointed that there was nothing new to the fantasy story. Here’s a short synopsis:

Litlle Zelie’s mom was brutally murdered in a raid to take magic away. Her mom was the greatest maji of her time. The king of Orisha ripped magic out of the country. Murdered everyone with the power and now after many years Diviners (maji people) are being crushed under the feet of the Orishan army and the brutal king. One fateful night the Gods decide to give Zelie and Diviners one last chance to restore their magic on a magical island that only appears once in a lifetime. The gods have chosen Zelie to carry out this quest. Along with her beloved brother but also two unforgiveable figures from Zelies past. Will Zelie be able to keep the past behind and help Diviners bring back what they deserve? Or will she be drowning in hatred and revenge along the way and loose her path?

My favorite character was Amari, her transformation, her innocence, her being bold, i loved everythingg! Her character development was what kept me going. Other than that i loved reading the ‘dreamscape’ moments. But, I did NOT like Inan’s confused decisions at all. And i did not like the repetition of motivational phrases by each character either, it got really annoying tbh.

I would definitely pick the second part just for Tzain, Amari and Roen. Roen omg, he comes in the last few 100 pages of the book but he reminds me so much of Nikolai from Grisha Verse! I definitely want to read more about him.

This book is a bit hefty but its a great chilled summer fantasy read, I recommend it to fans of Grisha Verse and Court Series.

Enjoy! If you’ve read the book let me know what you thought ❤

First off i want you guys to know that im a huge fan of the court series but this review is completely unbiased. Moving on, i read so many reviews prior to reading this book and all i saw was that this novella was completely unnecessary and that it had alot of ‘intimacy’.

.

Personally, I absolutely loved it. While reading this book i realized how much more i wanted to know about Feyre, Cassian and Azriels bonding, their level of friendship, trust and care. Also I was so hoping for a Cassian and Nesta understanding in this book. They were such a complicated duo and thank you so much SJM for going in-depth of their relationship and specially for showing us how Nesta feels and thinks after she was ‘made’. Lastly, not to worry peeps the intimacy shit is only in the last few chapters i guess and its not even that ‘bad’ as it just happens once (literally) in the entire book, (though if you’re thinking of postponing it for after Ramadan I’d suggest you do).

🌛Why read it?

If you were ever interested in exploring the inner circles bonds and wanted a detailed insight of how they felt towards each other then this is definitely your pick 🌹

.

🌜Why not.

Since its a novella i guess theres not much vital info that you might miss by skipping this book. But i would recommend it nonetheless.
