REVIEW: LABYRINTH LOST BY ZORAIDA CORDOVA
The Latina Book Club has been counting down all this week with great books celebrating the dark and mysterious.
Here’s a good bruja story to keep you up at night!
Happy Reading. And always, Read Latino!
Enchanting, magical, captivating!
This is Zoraida Córdova’s answer to the TV show, Charmed, about the three witch-sisters. LABYRINTH LOST features a whole family of witches, and Alexandra is the youngest and most powerful. The family expects a lot from her. Unfortunately, she can’t tell them that she doesn’t want to be a witch so she casts a spell to wipe out her powers and instead vanishes her whole family. Now she has no choice but to learn and work her magic and get her family back before nefarious forces vanish them – and her – forever.
We loved this book and are so glad that there will be more books in the series! Vivan las Brujas! Viva Brooklyn!
Book Summary: Nothing says Happy Birthday like summoning the spirits of your dead relatives. Alex is a bruja, the most powerful witch in a generation...and she hates magic. At her Deathday celebration, Alex performs a spell to rid herself of her power. But it backfires. Her whole family vanishes into thin air, leaving her alone with Nova, a brujo boy she can't trust. A boy whose intentions are as dark as the strange marks on his skin. The only way to get her family back is to travel with Nova to Los Lagos, a land in-between, as dark as Limbo and as strange as Wonderland...
