Mixed feelings

Children of Blood and Bone - Tomi Adeyemi

It's a very interesting concept but I have to agree with some other reviewers in that the voices weren't very distinct in the different chapters.  However it's an interesting tale of an alternative world where the king killed all the magic users in retribution for his family's death and severed the link between people with magical potential and the magic. Zélie Adebola is one of these, training and trying to keep out of sight when an opportunity to bring magic back presents itself and she has to try.  With some friends and enemies turned allies she is the last hope for magic in this world.


It was a good read but somehow I felt like there was unfulfilled potential here.
