    “When black high schooler Bree Matthews has the chance to escape her family grief by applying to an early college program at a local university, she jumps at the chance. After being attacked by a shadow beast, Bree learns of a secret society of predominantly white men called Legendborn, who must battle and vanquish the evil that enters our world. With wit, charm, and determination, Bree is a force to be reckoned with and a heroine to root for.”

    Lauren Nopenz Fairley, Curious Iguana (Frederick, MD)

    “Finally, an Arthurian retelling that isn’t treading the same path! Legendborn is the story of a magical black girl named Bree who finds herself wrapped up in a secret society at a privileged college while trying to understand the untimely death of her mother. Bree is hilarious, sharp, and filled with righteous anger, as you will be while reading this book. With wonderful characters, an incredibly clever twist on a familiar story, and excellent writing, this is a truly perfect summer read!” 

    Chelsea Bauer, Union Avenue Books (Knoxville, TN)
