Children of Virtue and Vengeance is the breathtaking second title in Tomi Adeyemi's YA fantasy trilogy, Legacy of Orïsha, following her ground-breaking, 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.

This is the first book I have ever purchased prior to release. Was really looking forward to reading it having purchased ‘Children of Blood and Bone’ first in paperback then in audio.
Somehow, the cost has been deducted despite my having paid for it months ago. Strange! Yes. Stranger still - the invoice that confirms this is one of two that suddenly won’t download from the server. All my other invoices both before and after are still showing in my mailbox.
This makes me angry because I now don’t have the credit I specifically added to purchase an annual payment for a language course.
