So I really enjoyed this book. I did expect this book to be a 5 star read for me, and while it wasn't it was really close. I loved how Bree and her family's history was integrated into the book and I loved how black history at the university was apart of the story. The two magic systems were both something that I really enjoyed and I loved how the book handled in and how we got to learn with Bree. I do wish that there was more time where school was mentioned, but I understand how with After-Bree it makes sense that there wasn't much mention in the novel. I liked both Nick and Sel and I love how their relationships with each other and with Bree were developed, (MINOR SPOILERS AHEAD, but nothing explicit) except I think Nick and Bree were a little too insta-lovey for my current taste and I think the flip in Bree and Sel's relationship could have been dealt with better, but I do think I like Sel more than Nick...I loved that Bree was going to therapy because I think it does need to be more normalized for people to go to therapy. Overall, I was greatly satisfied with this read and I cannot wait for the sequel to come out later this year. I am greatly anticipating the release of the title, release date, and cover.

I was absolutely enthralled and fell for every misdirect the whole way through. What an incredible Arthur twist. I'm so dang excited to read more of this story and more from this author, I can't even express it right now. Just mind the content notes.

loved this book. It's not the same old, tired YA fantasy despite involving Arthurian legend. I especially appreciate the way grief and institutional racism were handled.

The only thing I am wary of is a potential relationship that could happen in the next book (sincerely hope it doesn't).
