After her mother dies in an accident, 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 young mage who calls himself a 'Merlin' attempts - and fails - to wipe Bree's memory of everything she saw. His 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 she'll do whatever it takes to find out the truth, even if that means infiltrating the Legendborn as one of their initiates.… (més)

Been a while since I’ve been this stoked over a cliffhanger! I can't believe how cool that final plot twist was? I really got those "hoOOOHHH SHIIIITTTT" goosebumps.

This story is a moving, mega-creative modernization of Arthurian Legend, with heaps of history, queer rep, weighty genealogical webs, and best friends who’ve memorized your comfort food when you wake up with a magic hangover.

2/8/2022 update: This book is even better on the second readthrough. Such a powerful reinvention, I'm so glad the sequel comes out this year! ( )

I’m really not the audience for this book but I did find it pretty fun to read. It’s pretty much like every book these days: badass young woman with hidden magic power tasked to save humanity while also navigating a love triangle with a handsome hero and an equally handsome anti-hero.

There’s a ton of set up here and world building which I found a bit tedious at times but the Arthurian angle was new for me and the similar but different root magic storyline coming through from the heroine’s enslaved ancestors is a nice twist too.

My biggest beef is why did the author choose to make Bree 16 years old and in “early college”. The entire plot revolves around a college campus and it’s history so forcing a teenager into it makes no sense especially when the love interests are regular college students. Just let them all be in college! It’s barely mentioned but I just really don’t understand at all because when it comes up it makes me mad.

The book ends with a pretty big cliff hanger so I will probably dive in to book two since the library has it and I don’t have to wait years to find out what happens next. ( )

I was looking forward to listening to the audiobook, but it was too corny for me. I guess I'm jaded when it comes to YA fantasy. I only want to read in this genre if there are no cliches. I rolled my eyes when Nick was described as having the physique of an Olympic gymnast and "the bluest eyes I've ever seen" on top of smelling amazing and having a smile "probably on a poster in a dentist's office." Blergh. I did keep listening beyond perfectly-handsome-Nick, but not much. ( )

A retelling of Arthur and the Round Table…this is a solid story. I’m not typically a fan of YA, but this book took on grief, challenges on the POC community, growing up, and generational trauma in a beautifully moving story. Recommend. ( )

I really wound up enjoying this read. I really loved how this book combined the merlin elements but also how much this book was so well written. I also loved how this book was really focused on diversity in the story. It was such a fun read. I also really liked how this book combined so many elements like competition but also had such a fun foundation in merlin lore but turning the lore on its head. I also really enjoyed how this book tackled grief and depression. I struggled a bit with with the pacing and also felt like i would liked to see other elements of the main character life, but i will def be checking out book 2! ( )
