A very good follow-up to the first book. Now that magic has been restored to Orïsha you think that everything will be fine, but it is far from fine as those who had power before struggle to hold onto it by any means necessary, and neither the maji nor the nobility seem interested in listening to reason or compromise as each is focused only on the past and the atrocities that happened.

I really enjoyed Virtue and Vengeance as Tomi Adeyemi does a wonderful job of showing how clinging to the past and the unwillingness to listen, to admit failings, will only lead to strife and ruin. I also really enjoy the book because we get to see the maji in their full glory. Their magic is powerful, and seeing it on display was fun. But when magic was restored it also affected nobles with magic in their ancestry, like Amari and her mother. Seeing how they adapt to their new powers was also very fun.

A very good sequel to the first book and does a great job of expanding the mythos and history, the worldbuilding. The characters all must adapt and change to the new reality, and this causes its own strife. ( )

I thought the previous book was a pretty darned good adventure, but this sequel takes it to a whole other level! At the finale of the previous book we are left with magic having returned to Orisha, but our group of heroes have become splintered as betrayals and deaths begin to make their struggles more challenging, so Adeyomi has set us up well to explore the magic system of the world she has built as well as the developing personalities of our main characters. Obviously the draw for most readers of fantasy are the unique worlds that the author creates through their storytelling, but Adeyomi uses this setting in a much more meaningful way to explore the politics of our current world as we see the struggle of minorities to make a place for themselves in a world that rejects them. Through the Maji’s struggle for independence and freedom from the rule of the throne we see the flaws in a broken system revealed as power corrupts even those with good intentions, and we see how the pain of loss leads to ever increasing violence on both sides as each is blinded by sorrow and vengeance. What strikes me most about this second story is how much each of our main characters has grown up, as they struggle to wield their power to make a positive difference in Orisha but are seemingly blocked at every turn. Just when we think that one final strike will end the war the story shifts as new truths are revealed and hidden motives come to light. At this point in the saga I wonder if Orisha will be able to find peace and heal itself, as neither side seems able to look past their suspicions and work towards a legitimate solution. We are left with Amari and Zelie trapped on what seems to be a slaver ship moving away from Orisha’s conflict, so we’ll see if removing some players from the game makes any difference or whether they will fight their way out of this latest conflict as well.
