“Everything has two histories. Especially the South. In "Legendborn," we discover at least one more history to learn about - that of the Arthurian Legend. A fantasy/mystery mashup set on a southern college campus would have easily drew me in on its own. Add in the premise that Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table has secretly existed for the last 15 generations as a secret society to fight demons made it even more enticing. What made this truly magical is how Deonn gives us even greater depth with her #ownvoices authorship by also deftly highlighting how the modern day Black experience is still haunted by the lingering legacy of slavery in the South. She gives this experience voice through Breonna’s experiences of microagressions and blatant racism and more poignant observations such as the contrast of how easily the Southern whites can proudly trace their roots and family tree instead of the disruption and loss of lineage created by slavery for Black families. Grief tied more immediately to the recent death of her mother as well as these encounters of inter-generational trauma are addressed well throughout the story lines. A stellar sense of place exists with rich descriptions of southern culture, North Carolina and UNC Chapel Hill that could have only been created through deep personal experience. I loved that she created the implication that UNC was created and exists to be the stronghold and legacy of the Roundtable with us Onceborns not having the slightest clue. I immensely enjoyed the audiobook narration as it pulled the emotion and tension directly off the page in a wonderfully immersive way.”Cori, Bright Side Bookshop

Nocturna: Book #1
“This book spoke to me from the moment I picked it up. From the cover, to the beautiful world, and the characters full of spark and life, everything whispered to me, enticing me to dive in. What drew me most was the fact that May Motayne wanted to create a world that she thought had been MIA when she was younger and looking for books to read. Set in a Latinx-inspired land a prince without a future and a thief without a face have to team up to get something they both desire above all else. But to get what they want, they are going to have to defeat a power evil that wants to devour the world. Maya was able to capture the spirit of both a character who had no roots, and one who was true to their homeland, and their people. Maya beautifully blends language, culture, and magic in her debut novel. I cannot wait for the next book in this trilogy”Victoria, Mysterious Galaxy Books
“"I'm serious. I could have sustained a serious injury. Scarred for life. I may never be able to look insolent again." Rebecca Coffindaffer has crafted an adventure novel that is everything I've ever wanted in a YA Sci-Fi. Full of adventure, snark, and predictably bad decisions, CROWNCHASERS also shows an empathy to those who are unwillingly caught up in the chaos of empire-building. Coffindaffer's writing gives me the same feeling as teenage Summers spent reading 90s Star Wars novels, but with a snarky and sex-positive female character I would have clamored to root for. I hereby pledge my loyalty to the Farshoti family and cannot wait for more readers to join me. Content warnings for depictions of drug and alcohol use, death of loved ones, and violence.”Faith, Page 158 Books
