"I love the feeling of a magical world existing just beneath the surface of our own and this story gave me everything I wanted: incredible characters, ancient lore and secret societies – all grounded in our very real, very flawed world . . ." –Leigh Bardugo, author of Shadow and Bone

An explosive fantasy debut that is taking TikTok by storm. Perfect for fans of Cassandra Clare, Leigh Bardugo, Sarah J. Maas and Cinderella is Dead!

Filled with mystery and Southern Black Girl Magic, Tracy Deonn’s New York Times bestselling Legendborn offers the dark allure of City of Bones with a modern-day twist on a classic legend . . .

After her mother dies in an accident, sixteen-year-old Bree Matthews wants to escape. A residential programme for bright high-schoolers seems like the perfect opportunity – until she witnesses a magical attack her very first night on campus . . .

A flying demon feeding on human energies.

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

A mysterious 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 about her mother. Now Bree will do whatever it takes to discover the truth, even infiltrate the Legendborn. But when the Legendborn reveal themselves as the descendants of King Arthur’s knights and foretell a magical war, Bree must decide how far she’ll go for the truth. Should she use her magic to take the society down – or join the fight?

Winner of the Coretta Scott King – John Steptoe for New Talent Author Award, and a New York Times bestseller!

Incredible book,highly recommend it! I'm not as inclined to read books set in high school (which is not the case here) or with (main) characters who are 16 or under, but this book? I'm so, so glad I picked it up anyway, because it's phenomenal. It's a very interesting twist on Arthur & the round table legend first and foremost, but also deals with heavy topics such as racism, the death of a parent and the aftermath of that. Bree being a black woman of color is definitely refreshing, and it's not just the skin tone and hair; it's a black woman of color through and through. The culture, history, and sadly but very realistically deals with racism as well. It's great to read from that perspective. Enjoyed the book so much that I simply couldn't wait and got the sequel right after I finished this one and practically binged it!
