Writing the book over 18 months and 45 drafts, Adeyemi drew inspiration from novels like Harry Potter and An Ember in the Ashes as well as West African mythology and the Yoruba culture and language. The hopelessness she felt at police shootings of black Americans also motivated her to develop the story of Children of Blood and Bone. The book received one of the biggest young adult publishing deals ever, including preemptive sale of film rights to Fox Debuting at number one on The New York Times best-seller list for young adult books, the novel received mostly positive reviews. Critics wrote about its examination of oppression, racism, and slavery, with the kosadan and maji serving as stand-ins for real-world groups. It is also a coming-of-age story as the characters discover their abilities to help shape the world through their actions.
Her response to the accusation is absolute gold and though I've yet to read any of her books, starting with this series, too. The process has been wonderful. The idea that magic is a thing that has gone away and needs to be recovered is a common theme in fantasy books and older fairy tales. I love a good thriller.
You could potentially read this as a stand-alone but it would definitely be better to start with Year One instead. Everyone worked together. I expect this book will be the same excellence as all the others. Nice review.
