Leaving unrated as I didn't finish and this "review" is more a note to myself for why. I think it was because I'm not in the target audience for this book. Kept finding myself being frustrated at the characters and wishing they would take different actions; felt like a lot of their decisions were poor, but likely those in target audience did not feel this way, so it would be unjust for me to rate it just because the book didn't hit for me. Decided to drop the book and leave it unfinished. The writing/prose itself was good and I had no major issues with the general setting or plot.

If I had to use two words to describe this book they would be "overly dramatic" and this, I find, is a common pitfall of many books aimed at the young adult.

The author built a very interesting and original world (how many more medieval settings do we need?) based, I believe, on western African culture. This was probably the best part of the whole book. I thought maybe a small glossary may have been helpful.

As for the rest, the development of the characters was okay but I started to get annoyed with the extreme expressions of emotions throughout the book. The characters are soooooooooooooooo in love, soooooooooooooooo scared, soooooooooooooo self-doubting that after a while, I just wanted to strangle some of them. More nuance would have been better.

The plot was a typical quest which was okay but I finished thebook not knowing how everything ended. Did they succeed or didn't they? I don't know and that, for me, is so annoying. Too bad, a lot of potential was wasted in this book and I won't continue the series. ( )

I liked this. There was a lot of running around in circles and rethinking everything.

I'm a little frustrated that it is clearly the beginning of a series. I have enough of those going. I'm not sure I want to add another one to my collection. ( )

Here's my review: https://youtu.be/wmcFjoTRLbQ

If this hadn’t been so hyped I would have liked it more. I can’t get over my disappointment. I have a review written out already and will film it when I get home. Should come out the week after my review for the Jurassic World book. ( )

I enjoyed the worldbuilding and the themes of this book. The rules of magic were vague, but intentionally given the setting - there's space to grow and develop it in further books. The themes of race, intermingling, and shared heritage were well-woven into the world. I thought the recurring violence and how it changes children and communities was well-written, although obviously focused on how it affected our main characters.

I liked that the book started to address the moral gray area of magic used irresponsibly - it's definitely one of the issues that comes up with metaphors like the X-men. A group being persecuted because of what makes them different has a different ring when the thing that makes them different also makes them capable of mass murder without great effort.

For about a good chunk of the middle of the book, I had a hard time wanting to continue reading. The YA romance was very... tropey. Predictable, shallow-feeling, unearned. I just wanted to get through it and back to the more interesting character dynamics between the siblings, the king, the other diviners! Tzain and Amari's romance was much more buyable than Zelie and Inan, at least. Psychic powers make a poor shortcut to love when written like this for me.

The character's internal voices all blended together for me. Their motivations, hesitations, and goals all followed the same paths at roughly the same times, and I might have preferred this in an omniscient narrator's voice.

I probably won't be reading the sequels, but there are people I will recommend this to.

Digesting volumes of brutal and downtrodden images can be dangerous. It can lead to despair, paralysis, and/or self-fulfilling prophecies of further demise. Millions of people are ordinarily numb to the fact that hyper-violence and wretched Africanized worlds are hallmarks of modern media (esp. Hollywood), and accept it wholesale. Remarkably though, Adeyemi inserts a critical lifeline into this abyss–the concept that the Gods of one’s own ancestors (in this case the Orisha) provide salvation unlike any other.

If a “Black Lives Matter–inspired fantasy novel” sounds like an ungainly hybrid—a pitch gone wrong—think again... The creator of a mythical land called Orïsha, Adeyemi taps into a rich imaginative lineage as she weaves West African mythology into a bespoke world that resonates with our own.

I try not to think of her.
But when I do, I think of rice.
When mama was around, the hut always smelled of jollof rice.
I think about the way her dark skin glowed like the summer sun, the way her smile made Baba come alive. The way her white hair fuzzed and coiled, an untamed crown that breathed and thrived.
I hear the myths she would tell me at night. Tzain's laughter when they played agbon in the park.
Baba's cries as the soldiers wrapped a chain around her neck. Her screams as they dragged her into the dark.
The incantations that spewed from her mouth like lava. The magic of death that led her astray.
I think about the way her corpse hung from that tree.
I think about the king who took her away.
