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 could’ve imagined, reigniting the powers of not only the maji, but of nobles with magic ancestry, too.
Now, Zélie struggles to unite the maji in an Orïsha where the enemy is just as powerful as they are. But when the monarchy and military unite to keep control of Orïsha, Zélie must fight to secure Amari's right to the throne and protect the new maji from the monarchy's wrath.
With civil war looming on the horizon, Zélie finds herself at a breaking point: she must discover a way to bring the kingdom together or watch as Orïsha tears itself apart.
Children of Virtue and Vengeance is the stunning sequel to Tomi Adeyemi's New York Times-bestselling debut Children of Blood and Bone, the first book in the Legacy of Orïsha trilogy.
Praise for Children of Blood and Bone:
“Poses thought-provoking questions about race, class and authority that hold up a warning mirror to our sharply divided society.” –The New York Times
Up until a few weeks ago, eighteen-year-old Lissa Anderson drank, smoked, and partied hard.
Now, though, she’s determined to be the straightest arrow at Rosebud, an elite summer program for classical musicians.
But the unrestful spirits in the old school have other ideas.
A spooky old dormitory, overprivileged students, and hours at the piano make the program into everything Lissa expected.
What she didn’t expect is her quickly-budding romance with a cellist, a series of thefts related to scary stories, or the ghost determined to get Lissa’s attention.
Dead men tell no tales, but dead girls do.
This boxed set includes all three books in the Rosebud Academy trilogy: June's Blood, July's Flesh, and August's Bones.

They killed my mother.
They took our magic.
They tried to bury us.

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.
