EBOOK (Legendborn) º Tracy Deonn


LegendbornAnd forth with the boys Not to mention Bree drops some FIRE comebacks against the bigots who come at her throughout the novel There s this epic fight scene at the end that made my heart race It ties into the book s big twist and was seriously unputdownable THE BAD So much capitalization Anything to do with the worldbuilding was slapped with a capital letter Bree was Spelled to take an Oath to the Order so she can t break the Law against the Legendborn Lines even though she already has the Sight Nothing inherently wrong with this it just felt like a juvenile world building move INSTALOVE So at first I didn t think Bree and her love interest were oing to exhibit instalove my most DETESTED of tropes but they kinda did I mean this book only takes place over the span of 2 3 weeks and by the end of that time they ve fallen deeply in love with each other and not just any love it s an I will uard your life with my own type of thing There s a sort of explanation for why this might be the case but it s still instalove in my books ber hot love interests and a love triangle I m not altogether convinced was necessary I am ALL for angst but wasn t the biggest fan of Bree being drawn to both uys Also I m still waiting for the day when YA The Communist Manifesto gives up the sharp jaworgeous cheekbones broad shoulders silky hair love interest intros Chosen One tropeyness Oof We re constantly told that everything about Bree defies reason physics all known magic she s UNLIKE ANYONE EVER BEFORE HER and has powers innumerable I m than a little sick of reading MCs who are singled out as special snowflakes but that could just be me I expected from the platonic friendships department Her best friend Alice plays such a minor role in the story and in the beginning I was actually a little fed up because Bree and Alice were Norte: A Novel getting into the dumbest fights that felt like they were only there to alienate Bree and further the plot I loved Alice and Bree together though despite that rocky start they have such a pure andood relationship I just wish we d seen of it THE GREAT As far as I m concerned this than makes up for the tropes I mentioned above Legendborn doesn t simply acknowledge what it means to be Black in America or to be any sort of different from the cishet white norm It head on confronts modern day anti Blackness and its roots in the nation s history of colonialism disenfranchisement and violence It celebrates and champions the ways in which Black folk survive resist and thriveI really loved the revelation that view spoilerthe Legendborn users of colonizer magic aren t the only ones who can manipulate the otherworldly Alternate systems of magic exist based on a much mutual ive and take with one s ancestors and I absolutely adored reading about Deonn s system of Rootcraft Making the distinction between root and aether was SO important hide spoiler Happy publication day to the wonderful Legendborn This book was phenomenal Legendborn was everything I never knew I needed My first time delving into Arthurian mythology My first time experiencing magical secret societies All things I m eager to see of in the future This paired with the intricately planned plot made for a really wonderful story What is this book about After the death of her mother sixteen year old Bree is hoping to et as far from home as possible So when she ets accepted to an early college program for bright high school students Bree thinks she s discovered the perfect out Things take a turn for the worst during her first night on campus

When Bree Witnesses A Demon 
Bree witnesses a demon that no other students can seeWhen Sal a teenage mage attempts to wipe Bree s memory of everything she saw it backfires awakening startling powers in her Powers that show her there is to her mothers death than she originally thoughtUpon discovering a secret society within the college Bree is convinced she s found the people who can help her uncover what really happened to her mother The roup consists of Legendborn descendants of King Arthur and his nights Those with powers to expel demons in effort to prevent an oncoming warWhen Bree swears oath to the Legendborn hoping to learn the truth behind her mother s death she unknowingly binds herself to a lifetime of trouble Plot Legendborn had me hooked from the very start The pacing moved steadily and uickly ensuring that I never Everything Happens for a Reason: And Other Lies I've Loved grew bored Deonn s prose is thoroughly planned and executed as is evident in the way her story unravels on page The magic system is explained with crystal clear clarity I was in awe of the small intricacies Each chapter contains plenty of action and detailed revelations leaving me breathless and painfully invested in what was to come The plot twists were fantastic I m so eager for the continuation of this series Characters Legendborn contains a cast made up of several diverse characters which is always something wonderful to see represented in fiction Our protagonist Bree is black her best friend is asian and lesbian while other side characters areay bisexual nonbinary and people of colour Tracy Deonn perfectly includes commentary on racism slavery and colonization in Bree s narrative which is The Prime Minister of Paradise great to see brought up in a fantasy novel These important topics played a really significant role in the outcome of this story and ended upiving me added perspective on what horrible treatment black people received not only in the past but in the presentBree s character was a really strong lead her voice became steadily powerful as the novel progressed Deonn does a reat job developing her side Characters As Well And When as well and when the large number of them it s an impressive feat This was a spectacular debut one I m so eager for people to read Thank you to Simon Schuster and NetGalley for the E arc Many thanks to Netgalley and Simon Schuster Canada for sharing this ARC in exchange for an honest review All uotes in this review are subject to change upon release date Hold upDid it seriously just end like that It seems that I m on a streak of clif just saying but this has a bi mc also lesbian and "Nb Rep And Ff "rep and ff couples arturiada is ay as fuck kid. Find out the truth even if that means infiltrating the Legendborn as one of their initiatesShe recruits Nick a self exiled Legendborn with his own The Sisters of Sinai grudge against theroup 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 o for the truth and whether she should use her magic to take the society down or join the fig. .
YWould Jude ever have been uestioned about the legitimacy of her presence at an Early College programWhen America was selected as Maxon s ueen disclaimer I m pulling this out of a hunch I never actually ot past book 1 lol did his people ever hurl racial slurs at herYeah I didn t think so The utting and ripping thing about Legendborn is that this is Bree Matthews s reality alongside demon hordes a magical element in the air called aether sinfully hot sorcerers and a secret society filled with modern day descendants of King Arthur and his knights This book is fucking awesome and without a doubt one of my favourite reads of this year Trust me YOU NEED TO GET YOUR HANDS ON THISIt s been a while since I ve read a YA fantasy that s really enthralled me and shaken up the formulaic script I ve come to associate with the Dark Passage genre Legendborn wasn t perfect but boy does it bring a wholly novel story to the Round Table a heart pounding urban fantasy that tacklesrief inherited trauma legacies of colonization and chattel slavery and being a Black woman in the South redefining the legends we thought to be set in Excalibur s stone The reason I ve American Military History and the Evolution of Western Warfare given this book 4 stars and not 5 is because despite its fascinating worldbuilding and important moving subject matter it still leaned heavily on several YA clich s thatrated on me I m really conflicted in my reconciling of these contrived bits with the parts that were transcendent and powerful and heart hurting I know this sounds contradictory but that s exactly what I m feeling torn The meh parts of this book were meh but the Delivering Your Mail: A Book About Mail Carriers (Community Workers) good parts were PHENOMENAL Duality s a thing y all and Legendborn is itFor now I m justoing to say this I implore you to read Legendborn Deonn will reshape YA urban fantasy as we know it with this series and I cannot put into words how excited I am to read the next book So that was my TLDR version for the folks who re here to The Vanishing Man: In Pursuit of Velazquez get a sense of whether this book is worth your time it is If you re desiring of the nittyritty scroll on THE PREMISE 16yo Bree Matthews has not been the same since her mother died three months ago As she walks the campus of UNC Chapel Hill as a student in the prestigious Early College program her mother s alma mater seems to abound with barely concealed secrets and Bree s convinced that one of them will shed light on why her mother died Then comes the night Bree meets Selwyn Kane all dark curls Easy Breezy Miracle golden eyes killer jawline and witnesses him slay a demon or isel to be precise Following this trail of deadly breadcrumbs leads Bree to the Legendborn descendants of Arthur and thirteen of his knights who vanuish demons to protect humankind They re connected to her mother and Bree in ways she ll never expect and to find out she soing to compete in their trials With the help of Nick Davis think smokin olden boy next door Bree will join their ranks But what she discovers is unfathomably bigger than the Legendborn And as Bree rapples with her rief she must reconcile these new revelations with everything she thought she knew about her mom Will she stay loyal to the boys she s come to love even if it means serving an Order that negates her very existence Or will Bree somehow forge her own way THE WORLDBUILDING There s a "Lot Going On In This "going on in this and we readers have to fumble alongside Bree as she encounters it all for the first time Here s a uick summary of the positions within the strict hierarchy of the Order of the Round TableThe Legendborn are demon hunters descended from the original knights of the Round Table The most important member of each family or Line is the Scion a person between the ages of 16 22 who can be Called by their knightly ancestor When you re Called you ain the preternatural powers that the knight had for example Scions of the Line of Gawain ain the ability to heal others Scions can manipulate aether a magical element in the air into weapons and they re trained from birth for their roles however not everyone will be Called There s a rank order in which the knights Call their descendants eg Line of Bors will always be called before Line of Lancelot and the top ranked families are hardly ever Called because the lower families can usually handle the demon threats and no spoilers but if every Scion were to be Called it d be a bad thing When a Scion dies or turns 23 their title passes to the next eligible member in their family akin to succession to the British throne The Onceborn are what the Shadowhunters call mundanes humans who aren t to the British throne The Onceborn are what the Shadowhunters call mundanes humans who aren t of the Legendborn families protected from the truth about demons and magic The only Onceborns who know about this world are Vassals who have served the Legendborn for enerations in exchange for money power the works Vassals may be initiated into the Order as Pages lowest ranked in the Order hierarchy but still one step up from Vassal who can then compete once a year for the coveted spot of Suire Suires are magically bonded to Scions who have been Called and they The Doctors 5-Minute Health Fixes: The Prescription for a Lifetime of Great Health gain the powers of that Scion the Suire s duty is to protect their Scion at all costsFinally we have the Merlins or sorcerers of the Order Merlins can use aether to do all manner of things from tracking and incapacitating demons to sensing Gates portals that allow demons to enter the human plane to manipulating or mesmering people s memories The Kingsmage like Selwyn Kane is the most powerful Merlin of theireneration and has a special bond with the leader of the Round Table THE GOOD The diversity of rep Bree s Black and with the leader of the Round Table THE GOOD The diversity of rep Bree s Black and best friend Alice Chen is lesbian and Taiwanese American Even though the Order is just about fully white there are two bi characters a ay character a wlw relationship and a non binary character There re also several other Black characters who were pretty awesome including Bree s dad and her therapist Bree s banter is 1010 I loved the scenes featuring her and Alice they have this thing where one of them uotes a certain movie and the other person s like Did you just movie franchise me and the first person s like No I specific film from said franchise d you and it s freakin adorable and also her back. Ng demon feeding on human energiesA secret society of so called “Legendborn” students that hunt the creatures downAnd a mysterious teenage mage who calls himself a “Merlin” and who attempts and fails to wipe Bree’s memory of everything she sawThe mage’s failure unlocks Bree’s own uniue 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 to her mother’s death than what’s on the police report she’ll do whatever it takes to. ,
18720Still waiting for this beauty the drop 5220That cover is just TOO STUNNING Gosh I love my people271119 King Arthur retelling with Southern Black Girl Magic This is the book I didn t realise I needed in my life I mean the VIBES I am etting from this premiseYou can find me onYoutube Instagram Twitter Tumblr Website Where should I even begin Listen I m uite familiar with the legend of King Arthur but never in my life have I seen it done in this way There is so much to unpack in this novel The character development the plot development the spectacular writing the university history woven into every single page the connections I felt to the Black history discussed Everything was done in such a fast paced and interesting manner that The Go-Between gave me such a connection to the story as a wholeWhile this is being compared to the Mortal Instruments I find that this novel is capable of standing on its own There is a complexity and rich history that I found in this book that I didn t necessarily find in TMI The world building is intense and I m a stickler forood world building Deonn is careful in crafting a complex world while still explaining certain nuances without revealing too much to the reader She even took the time to include pronunciation uides within the heart of the text I loved this In each and every chapter there was another layer pulled away revealing so much about the world and about Bree There is this discussion about fantastical worlds and abilities through the lens of Black and a White people and that even in these settings Black individuals were forced to hide their abilities for fear of persecution There s a dichotomy of this world that Bree must attempt to navigate which in my opinion speaks to how Black people must function in predominately White arenas even if it is just a fantasy This is especially true to those of us that attend PWIs instead of HBCUs Trying to navigate those experiences can be challenging We definitely see this conflict exhibited in Bree and some of the challenges she faces when she attempts to work with the LegendbornSpeaking of Bree I loved her I connected with her I felt for her All of this happens while she still is attempting to process her mother s death And while a lot of this is an exploration of attempting to figure out what happened to her mother a reat portion of this is an examination of rief I myself have not felt the pain of losing a parent but Deonn made me empathetic to Bree and her journey There is so much to be said about the conversations regarding mental health and how Bree does and does not process her trauma There s a lot to be said about the Black communities treatment of mental health Honestly as I m writing this I m still amazed at how seamlessly Deonn was able to weave in so many different aspects into just the character development There are other main and side characters that are super diverse in race ethnicity ender identity and sexuality I loved and I mean loved that it was so casual It wasn t added for the sake of adding it It was representative of the norm It didn t move the plot It didn t change anything Deonn was simply allowing her characters to be themselves It was brilliantHands down this is one of the best fantasies of 2020 And I mean truly one of the best I m honestly still trying to The Prodigal Prophet: Jonah and the Mystery of God's Mercy gather my thoughts but myoodness this book was pure brilliance with amazing writing a fast plot and such fun characters I learned so much about root "magic and it s connection to our ancestors I mean I just learned a heck of "and it s connection to our ancestors I mean I just learned a heck of lot and I love when books do that And just wait for the twist and turns Haha Expect nothing Don t think you know anything If you haven t checked out this book please please please make sure you Deal Maker (Mixed Messages Book 2) (English Edition) give it a try It has Blackirl lead King Arthur Black Godmanstone
