Publisher Description

An instant #1 New York Times bestseller!
“Deonn writes…stories that humanize Black protagonists, like Bree, giving them agency and a place to both fail and, ultimately, to ascend.” —Booklist (starred review)

The “worthy successor to an explosive debut” (Kirkus Reviews)—the New York Times bestselling and award-winning Legendborn—perfect for fans of Cassandra Clare and Margaret Rogerson!

The shadows have risen, and the line is law.

All Bree wanted was to uncover the truth behind her mother’s death. So she infiltrated the Legendborn Order, a secret society descended from King Arthur’s knights—only to discover her own ancestral power. Now, Bree has become someone new:

A Medium. A Bloodcrafter. A Scion.

But the ancient war between demons and the Order is rising to a deadly peak. And Nick, the Legendborn boy Bree fell in love with, has been kidnapped.

Bree wants to fight, but the Regents who rule the Order won’t let her. To them, she is an unknown girl with unheard-of power, and as the living anchor for the spell that preserves the Legendborn cycle, she must be protected.

When the Regents reveal they will do whatever it takes to hide the war, Bree and her friends must go on the run to rescue Nick themselves. But enemies are everywhere, Bree’s powers are unpredictable and dangerous, and she can’t escape her growing attraction to Selwyn, the mage sworn to protect Nick until death.

If Bree has any hope of saving herself and the people she loves, she must learn to control her powers from the ancestors who wielded them first—without losing herself in the process.

Surprised Face with Open Mouth“The second book in the Legendborn series and it did not disappoint! The ending is soooooo suspenseful! I need the third book out pronto. As one who is being selective on the physical copies to purchase, this is moving up on the list! So good! The way Tracy handles ancestral trauma is beautifully handled.”

Beaming Face with Smiling Eyes“Upon delving into the initial installment of the series, Bree's compelling journey as a college-student, descendent of King Arthur and root-crafter captured my heart. As her story unfolded, I found myself fervently cheering for her, yearning for answers and the "root" to her entrustment of such a monumental task. What truly struck me was Bree's ability to challenge established norms, breathing fresh life into age-old traditions. The narrative's vivid descriptions effortlessly transported me into her world, making every moment relatable and engaging. While fantasy enthusiasts will undoubtedly find solace in this series, its universal appeal extends to anyone willing to take a chance -for like me, they too will inevitably fall under its spell”

Loudly Crying Face“Bri’s story and character makes my heart ache. The effortless way that Tracy writes about slavery while keeping it urban fantasy just makes this book extra special. I anticipated enjoying these books. But, I was not prepared for how greatly moving they are. This series has become some of my favorite books I have read all year. I cherish them and cannot wait for book 3. 🤍”
