First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros: Children of Blood and Bone

Vicki runs a weekly book prompt where we share the first chapter or paragraph of our current/about-to read. Today I’m going to give you a sneak peek to the wildly successful debut, Children of Blood and Bone (Legacy of Orïsha #1) by Tomi Adeyemi.

First paragraph:

Chapter One: Zelie

Pick me.

It’s all I can do not to scream. I dig my nails into the marula oak of my staff and squeeze to keep from fidgeting. Beads of sweat drip down my back, but I can’t tell if it’s from dawn’s early heat or from my heart slamming against my chest. Moon after moon I’ve been passed over.”
