    The Legendborn Cycle

    The Legendborn Cycle

    We have covered some very popular reads on this show, but never one with quite so many accolades. 

    Winner of the Coretta Scott King-John Steptoe Award for New Talent (2021), The Ignyte Award for Best Young Adult Novel (2021), the NCETA Ragan-Rubin Award for Literary Achievement (2021), finalist for a dozen others, both an instant indie and NYT bestseller, our next book needs no introduction. 

    And that's just the beginning! The Legendborn Cycle currently has two published books (a third is planned, never fear) and we cover them both in today's episode. Has Tracy Deonn delivered the greatest YA Fantasy series of all time? 

    Let us know what you think of the show @everythingbutthebookpod on our socials and remember folks, the Line is Law!

    The Blueprint

    Alright guys. This is the big one. This is the book where it all began, and what it always comes back to. Figured it out? 

    Say it. Out loud. 

    This episode features Lyss trying Scotch, Helen Keller, confusing unrequited love, the importance of looking cool in the airport, and finally recognizing how much abuse this series had?!
