Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi was a phenomenal read. Seeing the difference between the wealthy and the not so wealthy was represented in a great way. I also liked seeing the change in Amari throughout the book. The bond between Zel and Tzain was a very strong brother/sister bond. By the end of the book I am still a bit weary about Inan, but I guess I will have to wait until the sequel to see if my opinion changes. At the end of the book where, Tomi discusses how the brutality that some people have endured from police made me see the book in a slightly different view. There are scenes in the book that truly show that, however it is with the nobles versus the maji and the poor in the town. It is not fair and some of the scenes were sad. I definitely would recommend this book. 5/5.

I love this book so much!! I cannot wait to read the sequel although I am a bit terrified that there will be a love triangle in book two. I'm not really a fan of it.
