Zélie Adebola remembers when the soil of Orïsha hummed with magic. Burners ignited flames, Tiders beckoned waves, and Zélie’s Reaper mother summoned forth souls.

But everything changed the night magic disappeared. Under the orders of a ruthless king, maji were 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 an enemy.

Really enjoyed this. Sometimes the three main characters were waffly and unreliable and I found it difficult to connect with them but I liked the flow of the story in general. Only one thing bothered me and it may seem petty but I couldnt stop thinking about it. I know it's meant to be fantasy and a...

Yes, the premise had LOADS of potential but it still could have squandered or floundered or other "erds"....BUT when I got to about the halfway mark I let go of the breath I was holding and just enjoyed the ride without over-thinking t...
