Description

In the spellbinding sequel to "breath of fresh air for the genre" (Kirkus Reviews, starred review) Blood Like Magic, Voya fights to save her witch community from a terrible future, perfect for fans of Legendborn and Cemetery Boys.

Voya Thomas may have passed her Calling to become a full-fledged witch, but the cost was higher than she'd ever imagined.

Her grandmother is gone.
Her cousin hates her.
And her family doesn't believe that she has what it takes to lead them.

What's more, Voya can't let go of her feelings for Luc, sponsor son of the genius billionaire Justin Tremblay--the man that Luc believes Voya killed. Consequently, Luc wants nothing to do with her. Even her own ancestors seem to have lost faith in her. Every day Voya begs for their guidance, but her calls go unanswered.

As Voya struggles to convince everyone--herself included--that she can be a good Matriarch, she has a vision of a terrifying, deadly future. A vision that would spell the end of the Toronto witches. With a newfound sense of purpose, Voya must do whatever it takes to bring her shattered community together and stop what's coming for them before it's too late.

Even if it means taking down the boy she loves--who might be the mastermind behind the coming devastation.

Review quote

In Sambury's downright dazzling debut, Voya has finally started menstruating, which means she's ready to come into her family's magic and receive her gift from her family's ancestors. To receive this gift, each witch needs to complete a task given to them by an ancestor, and failing is not an option. To Voya's misfortune, Mama Jova, who suffered at the hands of slavery, imparts her task: to echo the family's mantra of "suffer and survive," Voya is instructed to destroy her first love or risk losing her family forever. This engrossing novel features a world both familiar and unfamiliar, in a near-future Toronto. Sambury vividly captures the vibrancy of Toronto as well as the diversity within the witch community, and her dedication to world building lends authenticity to her characters. Family and heritage are two important themes, demonstrated powerfully in the novel's descriptions of history keeping, food, and daily family life. While this urban fantasy takes place in the near future, Sambury does not turn a blind eye to the persistent history of systemic racism against Black people, the evils of slavery, or police brutality targeting Black people, nor how those impact the Black community on a daily basis, all while keeping magic compellingly at the forefront. This impressive debut will wow readers and leave them eager for more from this writer to watch.--STARRED Booklist review of BLOOD LIKE MAGIC "June 1, 2021"
