I was a bit suspicious at first, with so many raving reviews and in the beginning it seemed that I was right. I just can't identify with US college culture, which is so different than my own experience in my home country.
Luckily there is not much of that going on after the initial introduction of the setting and then the story starts to suck you in!
The grief is so raw in some parts, it takes your breath away. (and wanting to reach through the pages to hug both, Bree and Ms Deonn.)

It is a refreshing take on the Arthur Legend, with a nice plot twist that does me want to crave more.
defintely a reread as soon as the next book comed out! ( )

Really enjoyable Arthurian retelling that combines the Arthurian legend with Rootwork to create a fascinating story of grief, love, and loss.

It took a little longer than I had expected to set up the plot and world, as well as Bree's grief over the death of her mother. However, things started ramping up before too long, with a gradual increase in tension and consequece until before I knew it I was completely caught up in the action. I really enjoyed the characters, and will be curious to see where book two takes us.

It's also definitely worth reading the Afterword to see the author's inspiration for this story, and to better understand where some of the worldbuilding comes from. ( )

RGG: Urban fantasy, intersecting Arthurian legend with Rootcraft magic, set on the UNC-Chapel Hill campus. Overly complicated and long. But the main characters are compelling enough that one wants to find out what happens in the sequel. Reading Interest: YA

Series Info/Source: This is the first book in the Legendborn series. I got this book in an Owlcrate.

Story (5/5): This is a contemporary urban fantasy of sorts involving both Arthurian legend and other folklorish types of magic. Bree ends up attending a sort of pre-college at UNC-Chapel Hill and gets caught up in a secret society involving the spirits of Arthurian knights. As the story continues she realizes that this group might somehow be tied to her mother’s death. It’s a well crafted story that is intriguing and engaging.

Characters (5/5): I loved the characters here. Bree is amazing and I loved that the author gives excellent insight into the challenges Bree faces because of her skin color, this isn’t super in your face but is realistically portrayed. Bree is struggling with her grief over her mother’s death and it was amazing to watch how she grew throughout the course of the story. I loved a lot of the side characters as well, they all have a lot of depth to them.

Setting (4/5): The setting is fine; most of the book is set on the UNC-Chapel Hill campus. It worked well for the story and I did like how the King Arthur mythos was tied into everything. I can’t wait as more of the magic of this world is unraveled in future books.

Writing Style (5/5): This was an incredibly well balanced and well written novel. The pace is excellent and I had no issue staying engaged in the story. I loved the characters, the magic system, and the way Arthurian folklore and traditional Hoodoo were tied together. This is not a typical YA fantasy novel but has a lot more depth and complexity to it. I loved it and can’t wait to see what happens next.

My Summary (5/5): Overall I really loved this book; it was very well written and was an excellent blend of great pacing, wonderful magic, amazing characters, and an intriguing and complex story. I am excited to see what the second book in the series brings and would highly recommend this to fantasy and urban fantasy lovers young adult and older. ( )
