CHILDREN OF BLOOD AND BONE Legacy of Orïsha, Book 1

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Bahni Turpin

Young Adult Ages 14+ • 18 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Bahni Turpin’s breathtaking narration of this exhilarating novel will keep listeners rooted to their seats, listening intently. The story is told through the shifting perspectives of three teenagers in a West-African-inspired world that had magic until it was stolen away by a fearful and destructive king. Zélie is a diviner, a white-haired, black-skinned girl who is destined to help restore magic to Orïsha. Turpin imbues her with an impassioned voice, artfully portraying her rage, fear, hope, and determination. Turpin’s distinctive voices for Princess Amari and Prince Inan change as they grow in their strength and convictions, though on divergent paths. Turpin’s captivating narration, with incantations sung in Yoruba, intense battles, and lively, devastating dialogue, makes this an audiobook not to be missed. E.E.C.
