This is a MUST READ!!!! While it was a bit slow to pick up, it was worth it for the depth. Deonn put the work in to draw out detailed story arc that fully explored and did justice to topics like grief of losing a parent, addressing the racist roots of an institution, valuing all the relationships in your life, and putting yourself confidently into the world. Bree was an incredible protagonist to follow, and Deonn's writing was so rich in every area: describing the magic systems, reflecting on hard topics, giving tension and depth to relationships. Also, bonus points for writing a fantastic NB character, whose role in the story was more than just their identity, but who also added depth to the conversation on discrimination and positionally (i.e. recognizing their white priviledge interacting with their gender). Overall, I LOVED this book and I cannot wait for the sequel!!

Shortly after the unexpected death of her mother, sixteen-year-old Bree Matthews enrolls in UNC Chapel-Hill's residential high school program. At first, this seems like the perfect way to escape from her painful memories at home and get back to some kind of normal—but on her first night on campus, Bree witnesses a magical attack that thrusts her into a world of secret societies and Arthurian legends brought to life. 
This book was so good. It’s the first time in ages I simultaneously had a book I couldn't put down and also had to keep putting it down cause it was giving me all the feels. And those last 100 pages were just—! I'm looking up the release date for the sequel as we speak.

the only thing i didn't like was the incredibly slow beginning!! it was so confusing and hard to follow. i was so close to putting the book down. but i ended up understanding and finishing, i was dont regret it!! the rest of the book made up for the beginning
