Children of Blood and Bone

We can't wait to read Tomi Adeyemi's Children of Blood and Bone! The fantasy novel follows Zélie Adebola, a young woman on a quest to return the magic that was stolen from her people by an oppressive ruling class – and along the way learns to embrace her own magic. It’s an epic adventure set in a world that is both richly fantastical and uncannily reflective of our own society.

To read along, get your copy of the book through the links below, at your neighborhood bookstore or through your local library!

Jimmy and the show will be checking in to give feedback on the book, answer questions and hear what you have to say about it during the month of July using #TonightShowSummerReads. Even more exciting, Jimmy hosted a live Q&A with Tomi Adeyemi on his Instagram and The Tonight Show YouTube Channel where they answered your questions for Tomi!
