Description

An instant New York Times best seller!

Winner of the Coretta Scott King - John Steptoe for New Talent Author Award

Filled with mystery and an intriguingly rich magic system, Tracy Deonn’s YA contemporary fantasy reinvents the King Arthur legend and “braids together Southern folk traditions and Black Girl Magic into a searing modern tale of grief, power, and self-discovery” (Dhonielle Clayton, New York Times best-selling author of The Belles).

After her mother dies in an accident, 16-year-old Bree Matthews wants nothing to do with her family memories or childhood home. A residential program for bright high schoolers at UNC - Chapel Hill seems like the perfect escape - until Bree witnesses a magical attack her very first night on campus.

A flying demon feeding on human energies.

A secret society of so called “Legendborn” students that hunt the creatures down.

And a mysterious teenage mage who calls himself a “Merlin” and who attempts - and fails - to wipe Bree’s memory of everything she saw.

The mage’s failure unlocks Bree’s own unique magic and a buried memory with a hidden connection: The night her mother died, another Merlin was at the hospital. Now that Bree knows there’s more to her mother’s death than what’s on the police report, she’ll do whatever it takes to find out the truth, even if that means infiltrating the Legendborn as one of their initiates.

She recruits Nick, a self-exiled Legendborn with his own grudge against the group, and their reluctant partnership pulls them deeper into the society’s secrets - and closer to each other. But when the Legendborn reveal themselves as the descendants of King Arthur’s knights and explain that a magical war is coming, Bree has to decide how far she’ll go for the truth and whether she should use her magic to take the society down - or join the fight.

Good story

So I was torn between a 3-4 stars because the story was good and complex. Really enjoyable I liked most of the characters, the magic world and the performance wasn’t bad loved having a black lead BUT the main character was so weak emotionally. at first It was fine and I thought she had, had character growth halfway through and even liked her then but the last third of it she was just as emotional and defenceless as the beginning I felt all the progress went out the window. Plus I felt the ending was slightly rushed or inconclusive.

I would recommend since it was good I just couldn’t rate it higher.

One of a kind

Could not stop listening. Bree annoys me sometimes but she’s also a teen experiencing a new world and tons of grief.

The character building is complex, magic system fascinating and plot interesting. 5 stars!

Mysterious and compelling from start to finish

This book does so many things well I don't think I have anything bad to say about it. The combining of history and lore and creative magic. The compelling characters with complex relatable backgrounds. A fast romance that doesn't feel forced or thirsty or awkward. a well guarded twist that doesn't really get spelled put until its time.

I was ready for book 2 half way through this book. I hope this series gets some kind of screen adaption because it will look amazing on a screen.

It won me over... Engaging story

I really enjoyed listening to this story, and look forward to reading more into the series. I wasn't a huge fan of the King Arthur connection, but I think the way Dionne wove it in, was interesting. I found that it was easy to get into the story as the plot progressed.

Perfection

This is without question one of the best books I’ve ever read (listened to). Every opportunity Tracy had to take the easy predictable route that a lot of authors take she didn’t she twisted and turned to keep me on my toes throughout this story. I had to remind myself to breathe throughout this adventure as Tracy was able to bring you into full investment to the character and their lives.
Joniece’s Performance was wonderful able to bring in suspense and bring the characters to life in the same way I would if I was reading myself. Her accents we delightful and just help to completely bring you into the world that Tracy created. Can’t wait for book two!
