If you follow me on my Instagram, you would know that I am in love with Children of Blood and Bone ever since I finished the ARC in January. I was thrilled to be given the opportunity to participate in the Now We Rise Blog Tour, so a big thank you goes out to Macmillan for including me!
This is my first blog tour and it was fun to prepare for seeing as how I got to create an aesthetic for my designated maji clan, the winders. Winders, as you might be able to tell from the name, are able to manipulate the wind and air around them. It was a bit of a challenge to be able to capture the essence of wind in an aesthetic.
Here is the aesthetic I created for the winder clan!
About the Book
Synopsis: Zélie Adebola remembers when the soil of Orïsha hummed with magic. Burners ignited flames, Tiders beckoned waves, and Zelie’s Reaper mother summoned forth souls.
But everything changed the night magic disappeared. Under the orders of a ruthless king, maji were targeted and 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 the enemy.
