Bahni Turpin draws listeners back into the world of Orïsha, where Maji warriors and a corrupt monarchy battle to determine the fate of the kingdom. AudioFile’s Emily Connelly tells host Jo Reed about diving back into this dynamic new young adult audiobook from Tomi Adeyemi. Bahni truly excels in conveying all of the raw emotion, with Reaper Zélie and Princess Amari both mourning close family members after the conclusion of Children of Blood and Bone. Listeners will be propelled into a rich world where magic has been brought back—but at huge costs.
