Vicki runs a weekly book prompt where we share the first chapter or paragraph of our current/about-to read. Today I’m going to give you a sneak peek to the wildly successful debut, Children of Blood and Bone (Legacy of Orïsha #1) by Tomi Adeyemi.

First paragraph:

Chapter One: Zelie

Pick me.

It’s all I can do not to scream. I dig my nails into the marula oak of my staff and squeeze to keep from fidgeting. Beads of sweat drip down my back, but I can’t tell if it’s from dawn’s early heat or from my heart slamming against my chest. Moon after moon I’ve been passed over.”

Wow this first insight into the book makes me realise what all the hype is about! The writing is so beautiful.
