Last year Tomi Adeyemi made headlines after her young-adult fantasy trilogy Children of Blood and Bone was optioned by major film production company. It was a major milestone for a YA debut novel

Children of Blood and Bone chronicles Zélie Adebola’s quest to restore magic to her homeland of Orïsha after a vicious king slaughtered many former magicians (maji) and tried to strip Orïsha of its magic. Adeyemi, who is Nigerian-American, drew from her own cultural background to pen the book. After graduating from Harvard University with an honors degree in English literature, she received a fellowship that allowed her to study West African mythology and culture in Salvador, Brazil.

Tomi Adeyemi currently teaches creative writing and resides in San Diego, California. Her forthcoming publication, Children of Virtue and Vengence is slated for release in June 2019 (Henry Holt)


This exciting fantasy offers a world full of danger and enchantment as well as vibrant characters with awesome potential. (The Atlantic)
