Description

The spectacular sequel to Audie Award Audiobook of the Year Children of Blood and Bone

A GOOD MORNING AMERICA BOOK CLUB PICK

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 could’ve imagined, reigniting the powers of not only the maji, but of nobles with magic ancestry, too. Now, Zélie struggles to unite the maji in an Orïsha where the enemy is just as powerful as they are. But when the monarchy and military unite to keep control of Orïsha, Zélie 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, Zélie finds herself at a breaking point: She must discover a way to bring the kingdom together or watch as Orïsha tears itself apart.

Children of Virtue and Vengeance is the stunning sequel to Tomi Adeyemi's New York Times best-selling debut Children of Blood and Bone, the first audiobook in the Legacy of Orïsha trilogy.

Really Sad

I LOVED "Children of Blood and Bone." Could hardly wait for this sequel. Seven chapters in, and I'm bored senseless, and cringing at the absurd and predictable story line. "...Blood and Bone" began with tension...a fight scene that escalated into more tension, relaying the divisiveness that drives the story line, with layers of ironies, intricate details and twists. Conversely, "...Virtue and Vengence" begins with this same fiery protagonist, now a weepy narrator, bemoaning her situation. The story then plods along, with an actionless narrative, minus intense and descriptive plot surprises designed to hold the reader's interests.

A glimmer of hope arises at the onset of Chapter 7, but it is soon snuffed out, via a predictable story occurence, which dims all hope of the story mystery and allure being resumed.

Unfortunately, I will return this audiobook before completion. I prefer remaining content with fond memories of Book 1 "Children of Blood and Bone," rather than ruining my entire impression of this initially-inspiring story.

Innovative and refreshing!

Imaginative well paced storytelling. Bahni Turpin 's nuanced narrative breaths life into this imaginative world. Tomi Adeyemi's Orisha reverberates with color, sound and brilliant imagination. Two for two in this epic series.

PLEASE GET ANOTHER READER

I love this series, I really do. But it is so painful listening to this narrator butcher every Yoruba word, name, phrase and passage. It’s actually worse than the way she read the first book. I don’t understand why Audible would have someone that already has a very notable (South African?) accent narrate a book that is specifically Nigerian with so much Yoruba. I missed so many parts of this book due to the terrible butchery of her pronunciation

Seriously? Bahni Turpin narrates this?!!!

It is quite ridiculous that Audible has allowed Bahni Turpin to narrate this follow-up book. RIDICULOUS!!! Her rendition of a western African accent and pronunciations of Yoruba phrases are incorrect and often times change the meaning. I wonder if the author, Tomi Adeyemi, samples this audio narration. It sounds like rubbish! Bahni Turpin does a decent narration job on other works, I truly do appreciate her skills, but she is the wrong person to narrator this work. At best, the accent she taps into sounds more southern African than western. And her Yoruba skills are nonexistent. This narration job should have been given to a better trained narrator that is skilled in Yoruba intonations and familiar with western African accent. This work is one of the worst audios I’ve ever listened to.
