Horn Book Review

When magic suddenly disappears from the kingdom of Orsha, King Saran seizes the chance to murder all the maji (rare and powerful magic-wielders), leaving alive only the divners (children born to be maji but too young to have yet developed their powers). Eleven years later, Zlie, a divner whose mother was murdered in the raid, is at the market when Sarans daughter Amari begs for her help. The princess has stolen a magical scroll, which, when Zlie touches it, awakens her power to command the dead. Joined by Zlies brother Tzain and pursued by Amaris brother Inan (whose own power comes to life when he accidentally touches the scroll), Zlie and Amari set out to use the scroll to restore magic to Orsha permanently. Zlie, Amari, and Inan share narrative duties, and each has a compelling growth arc, particularly Zlie, whose initial self-doubt is eased by reliance on her hard-won martial skills and her increasing love of magic, but who suffers a paralyzing crisis of confidence at the climax. The delicious romantic tension that develops between Zlie and Inan and between Amari and Tzain adds extra layers of complication and reader engagement. References to Nigerian culture and geography (Yoruba is the language of magic here) give this fantasy a distinct flavor, further distinguished by the intensity of emotion evoked by the impassioned (if occasionally overly dramatic) prose. anita l. burkam (c) Copyright 2018.
