Book of the Week – Children of Blood and Bone

Read it in a day. I’ve not had such an immersive read since Sabaa Tahir’s An Ember In The Ashes, and similarly it is a beautifully written, compelling story with fully realised characters and I could not stop reading it. I particularly loved the complexity of the characters and the embracing of the paradoxical protector-perpetrator/victim-survivor identities which makes the characters so much more human and real. And it is still so rare, and therefore extra special, to see a fantasy book written by a woman of colour, with protagonists of colour, be so well publicised and successful. Definitely recommended!
