      No one can save her.

      In order to protect Prince Lucien d’Malvane’s heart, Zera had to betray him. Now, he hates the sight of her. Trapped in Cavanos as a prisoner of the king, she awaits the inevitable moment her witch severs their magical connection and finally ends her life.

      But fate isn't ready to give her up just yet.

      With freedom coming from the most unlikely of sources, Zera is given a second chance at life as a Heartless. But it comes with a terrible price. As the king mobilizes his army to march against the witches, Zera must tame an elusive and deadly valkerax trapped in the tunnels underneath the city if she wants to regain her humanity.

      Winning over a bloodthirsty valkerax? Hard. Winning back her friends before war breaks out? A little harder.

      But a Heartless winning back Prince Lucien’s heart?

      The hardest thing she’s ever done.

      The Bring Me Their Hearts series is best enjoyed in order.

      AGOOD MORNING AMERICA BOOK CLUB PICK

      “Meet Tomi Adeyemi—the new J.K. Rowling. (Yep, she’s that good).”—Entertainment Weekly

      After battling the impossible, Zélie and Amari have finally succeeded in bringing magic back to the land of Orïsha. But the ritual was more powerful than they could’ve imagined, reigniting the powers of not only the maji, but of nobles with magic ancestry, too.

      Now, Zélie struggles to unite the maji in an Orïsha where the enemy is just as powerful as they are. But when the monarchy and military unite to keep control of Orïsha, Zélie must fight to secure Amari's right to the throne and protect the new maji from the monarchy's wrath.

      With civil war looming on the horizon, Zélie finds herself at a breaking point: she must discover a way to bring the kingdom together or watch as Orïsha tears itself apart.

      Children of Virtue and Vengeanceis the stunning sequel to Tomi Adeyemi'sNew York Times-bestselling debutChildren of Blood and Bone, the first book in the Legacy of Orïsha trilogy.

      Description

      “Should appeal to readers who enjoy the Captain Underpants and Wimpy Kid series.” -School Library Connectionon Kid Normal

      Since becoming Kid Normal, Murph Cooper and the Super Zeroes – fellow students with arguably less-than-useful talents like the ability to conjure tiny horses from thin air – have been catching bad guys all over the place. But being a hero isn't easy, especially when you can't tell anyone about your epic adventures and your classmates still don't believe you've got what it takes.

      And then, far away in a top-secret prison, the world's most feared supervillain breaks his thirty-year silence. His first words? “Bring Kid Normal to me!” This supervillain was responsible for stealing the powers from some of the greatest Heroes Alliance members of all time. Does Murph have what it takes to bring him down?

      With black-and-white illustrations throughout, this laugh-out-loud story proves that heroes come in all shapes and sizes.

      A hilarious, illustrated middle-grade adventure about a superhero with no superpowers!
      “Should appeal to readers who enjoy the Captain Underpants and Wimpy Kid series.” -School Library Connection

      When Murph Cooper begins his new school several weeks into the year, he can't help but feel a bit out of his depth. And it's not because he's worried about where to sit, making friends, and fitting in. It's because his mom has accidentally enrolled him at a school for superheroes. And unlike his fellow students, who can control the weather or fly or conjure tiny horses from thin air, Murph has no special abilities whatsoever.

      But Murph's totally normal abilities might just be what the world needs. Because not far away is a great big bad guy who is half man and half wasp, and his mind is abuzz with evil plans . . . and when he comes after the best and the brightest, it's up to Murph to be the real hero.

      With black-and-white illustrations throughout, this laugh-out-loud story proves that heroes come in all shapes and sizes.
