Legacy of Orisha (Book 2)

After battling the impossible, Zélie and Amari have finally succeeded in bringing magic back to the land of Orïsha. But the ritual was more powerful than they could’ve imagined, reigniting the powers of not only the maji, but of nobles with magic ancestry, too.

Now, Zélie struggles to unite the maji in an Orïsha where the enemy is just as powerful as they are. But when the monarchy and military unite to keep control of Orïsha, Zélie must fight to secure Amari’s right to the throne and protect the new maji from the monarchy’s wrath.

With civil war looming on the horizon, Zélie finds herself at a breaking point: she must discover a way to bring the kingdom together or watch as Orïsha tears itself apart.

Customer Reviews

“Relentless even beyond its finish, this is a sure-fire hit. Definitely have more than one on hand.”

— Booklist (starred)

“Adeyemi’s thrilling second Legacy of Orïsha novel ups the stakes and expands the series’ mythology while extolling unity and illustrating the futility of hatred and retribution . . . a vivid, visceral tale studded with action and capped with a literary gut-punch.”

— Publishers Weekly

“The passion and drama in the writing are as powerful as ever . . . Readers delighted by the complex, politically sophisticated kingdom of Orïsha will cheer its return in this alluring sequel.”

— The Horn Book
