Filled with mystery and an intriguingly rich magic system, Tracy Deonn's YA contemporary fantasy Legendborn offers the dark allure of City of Bones with a modern-day twist on a classic legend and a lot of Southern Black Girl Magic. After her mother dies in an accident, sixteen-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.… (més)

TITLE: Legendborn

AUTHOR: Tracy Deonn

TW/CW: Grief, death, sexual assault, fantasy violence, slavery, racism

RATING: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 1/2

REVIEW: Legendborn is the story of Bree Matthews, a young woman who has started attending Early College (for 16 and 17 year olds) at UNC months after her mother’s death. While there, she discovers a secret magical society that has been there for generations and finds herself caught up in it, looking for answers for what happened to her mother and for what is happening to herself.

This is, without a doubt, an excellent book. Bree is a great protagonist – she usually makes the right choices, but not always, which makes her realistic and imperfect. The mythology of the Legendborn is at first a little complex and confusing, but it clears up by the end and it’s really quite unique and interesting. This book has parts which are very sad, but also parts that are very uplifting. It’s also wonderful to find a young adult fantasy book with a WOC as the main character, and I love how that was worked into the story and how Bree came to find herself.

I recommend this book to anyone who loves fantasy and Arthurian legend. ( )

This is a phenomenal book. Whispers of Octavia Butler, full flushed out lore times 2. Deep characters, flaws and strengths. I laughed, cried, yelled, gasped, everything.

There were a couple pieces of exposition and dialogue that were a little dry, but overall a fantastic read. ( )

I don't give five stars easily. Loved the amazing storytelling in this one. Can't wait for the sequel. ( )

This YA fantasy novel is a little bit King Arthur retelling, a little bit Supernatural, and a dash of the feel of Kindred. I cannot express strongly enough how much I love the premise of this book and the way Arthuriana and magical traditions born out of West Africa and developed by enslaved people in North America clash and interrogate one another here. And the reveal that our Black teenaged girl protagonist, because she is the descendent of two lines through the rape of an enslaved women, is the descendent of Arthur who will inherit his power, thereby bringing together the power of the mythologies of the colonizers and enslavers with the enslaved because she is descended from both lines is just. I think I was chanting "yes!" at the book as it was coming together. (Don't miss the Author's Note, where Deonn talks a bit about this theme.) That being said, I found the writing and the characterization a little flat. I sometimes felt like everything in the story was given equal weight, which can be tedious and plodding. I also thought that the bits where Bree interacted with her family and learned about her heritage were much more "alive" than her forays into the Arthurian secret society, and I wish there had been even more of that aspect of the story. I love love love that this book is out there and hope it is striking a chord with a lot of teens, but I'm undecided about whether I'll keep going with the series. ( )
