Legendborn is truly amazing that this is a debut novel!
When I heard about it, it was through the booktube community. It was so hyped up that I was afraid of reading it, but when I finally did, I was blown away by every part – the writing, the plot, the characters, and now it’s one of my favorite books ever written.
What I loved most about this book was the writing. Tracy Deonn is a new author with a fresh voice, and from the very first lines of the book, you will be gripped by the unique voice and the fast pace. It reminds me of V. E. Schwab and her way of telling a story in a way you keep turning the pages without being able to stop, even though I never read this author before, and apparently, neither has anyone else.
I found the plot interesting – an Arthurian tale in modern times with a magic spin – and the main character unique – an African American girl on campus – and like I said, the writing will keep you turning those pages, without fail. The only thing I wasn’t crazy about was the twist at the end, but only because I’ve seen it before. Even so, the book is truly unique and well worth the read.
Legendborn is one of the best written books I have ever read, and I have read quite a few. I recommend this book to anyone who likes urban fantasy and magic in their stories.
