Then one night, magic deserted them, and the magi were brutally murdered by a tyrannical king. A chance encounter with a rebel princess sends her on a dangerous journey that will give her the chance to restore magic — but the cost will be higher than she ever imagined. It does not disappoint. Rather than subverting them, Adeyemi revels in fantasy tropes, giving us princesses, family betrayals, power struggles and an epic world with a new system of magic to explore and enjoy. But it is the vibrantly drawn, west African-inspired setting that makes this unlike any fantasy readers will have encountered before. The hate-to-love romance comes with high stakes, and the relationship is realistically and passionately realised.
Ilorin is the village in which Zelie and Tzain grew up. It is an ocean-side village similar to Venice in that there are a series of canals all throughout the village. It is a small village in which everyone knows one another. Lagos is the capital of Orisha. Inan and Amari spend their whole lives in the capital, with little to no idea of anything that happens outside of their castle. The capital is a massively large city in which thousands and thousands of people roam the streets, selling and trading and buying goods. The city is divided into slums in which Maji live so that the Kosidans do not have to interact with them.
