L L McKinney recommends
Legendborn (2020)
(Legendborn, book 1)
Tracy Deonn
"Legendborn is intoxicating, electrifying, and resonates with a deep understanding and vulnerable adoration of what it is to be a Black girl searching for the magic of herself. Tracy Deonn captivates you from page one with her perfect pacing, exhilarating plotting, and a command of storytelling that cannot be ignored. This book will hold everything you are hostage until, page by page, you discover how it has actually set you free."
A Song Below Water (2020)
(Song Below Water, book 1)
Bethany C Morrow
"The world is lush and intense, the voice intoxicating, and the message eternal. Morrow will have you under her spell from page one."
