Couldnt wait to start the second book!

I bought the second book before I even finished the first. I love books with a female who embraces all the sides of herself even her doubts and wonders!

Crying is mandatory for this book

I have yet to finish the book but it has been one that I have had to tell myself that I have other things that need to get done before I can continue reading it. It has caused me to cry more than once due to the storyline. Absolutely a wonderful read, hard to put down once you start, and you will need a box of tissues near by. Highly recommend if you want suspense, a bit of romance, and adventure.

Incredible read, beautifully written, hard to put down

This book is absolutely fantastic and beautifully written. It's action packed and full of twists and turns. It had such fierce characters you will fall in love with, you won't be able to put it down. Highly recommended; I don't believe anyone will be disappointed with this purchase.

The series is ✨immaculate✨

Y'all....y'all...if you're having doubts about purchasing this book because the cover looks appealing to someone who's like 10 I'm here to tell you right now that this book is insanely good and this is your sign to go get it right now. African-inspired, action-packed, and full of plot twists I couldn't put it down

I loved this book!!

This was a book I bought on a whim and I'm so glad I did!! This book was not only beautifully written, but it also takes you on so many emotional journeys. It's a truly a timeless tale of magic, prejudice, betrayal and love. Not to mention the wide range of strong, relatable characters. Anyone who picks up this book is sure to enjoy it!! I strongly recommend this read ❤️

You won't be able to put it down!

This book draws you in. You become connected to those in the story as you experience their different points of view. Absolutely invigorating.

Blood and Bone

This kept me on my toes and begging for a sequel. So many similarities, yet differences, to the Harry Potter "magical" realm. If your an HP fan you would enjoy this series.

Flowing rhythm of passion and imagination

saw this book on Jimmy Fallon’s show and decided to see what it was about... as soon as it arrived the cover itself is pretty amazing wonderful image! But then I began to read it... I just became so entranced I didn’t want to put it down! This book takes you on a magical journey for sure! A definite must read!

One of the best books I've read in a while.

I read about it before it came out and thought it looked interesting. I kept up on everything happening with the book and found out a preview of about five chapters were released on Amazon. I read them and what do you know? The book had an amazing start! I preordered it and I could hardly put it down after it got here. If you're looking for a good read, you have found one.
