An Instant New York Times Bestseller! Winner of the Coretta Scott King - John Steptoe for New Talent Author Award 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.
