Reaper of Souls by Rena Barron
Before, Arrah was shamed by having no magic at all. Now, with demons on warpath, she is the only one in the world who has it. Explosive fantasy set in a West-African world of magic and legend.
Perfect for fans of Tomi Adeyemi and Sarah J Maas. I AM POWER. I AM MY ANCESTORS.
I DO NOT WALK ALONE. After so many years yearning for the gift of magic, Arrah has the one thing she's always wanted - but it came at too steep a price. Now the last surviving witchdoctor, she's been left to pick up the shattered pieces of a family that betrayed her, a kingdom plunged into chaos, and a love that can never be.
While Arrah returns to the tribal lands to search for survivors of the demons' attack, her beloved Rudjek hunts down the remnants of the demon army - and uncovers a plot that would destroy what's left of their world. The Demon King wants Arrah, and if she and Rudjek can't unravel his schemes, he will destroy everything, and everyone, standing in his way. In this roaring sequel to KINGDOM OF SOULS, Rena Barron weaves a tale of mythology, love, whip-fast action and trademark twists that asks the question: can you ever leave your past, ancestors, behind? Perfect for fans of Laini Taylor, Sabaa Tahir, and Tomi Adeyemi.
