Book: Children of Virtue and Vengeance
Author: Tomi Adeyemi
This is my 41st read for the year
This is the 2nd book in the Legacy of Orisha Series. Amari and Zelie have brought magic back, but the magic not only returned to the Maji, but to nobles who had magic anestry. No the enemy is just as powerful as the Maji and Zelie must unite with all the Maji she can find to keep control of Orisha. Amari remains torn between protecting the Maji and protecting her brother. Her choices make it hard for Zelie to trust her and keep the Maji safe.
This was an okay book. Not as good as the first. It is entertaining and a good audio book while doing yard work. Inin - Amari's brother - wavered so often in the book that it got tiring. Pick a side man. The angst in this book (hey they are teenagers after all) was a bit much for this adult reader. It just went on and on to the point of "move on already".
I understand there is going to be a third book - this book does leave open ended. I may check it out hoping that the story will move forward and evolve beyond teenage woes.
