Labyrinth Lost
Labyrinth Lost | Zoraida Cordova
Bruja magic runs in her blood, but a curse to get rid of it may cost Alex more than her power... Alex is a bruja, the most powerful witch in her family. But she's hated magic ever since it made her father disappear into thin air. So while most girls celebrate their Quinceaera, Alex prepares for Death Day - the most important day in a bruja's life, and her only opportunity to rid herself of magic.But the curse she performs during the ceremony backfires and her family vanishes, forcing Alex to absorb all the magic of her family line. Left alone, Alex seeks help from Nova, a brujo who covets her power for himself. To get her family back they must travel to Los Lagos, a land in-between, as dark as Limbo and as strange as Wonderland...

This YA fantasy about a young bruja from Brooklyn was delightful! Filled with ghosts, monsters, friends, and family, it is creative, magical and fun. I would love to see this as a movie or series. Great on #audio while cleaning the house! #BookspinBingo @TheAromaofBooks #marvellousmay #readathon @Andrew65

Kind of a soft pick. I read this one for a class I‘m taking this semester, and I found the story engaging but the writing kind of overly simplistic for YA. This was also my #bookspin this month! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

When Alex attempts to use a celebration to rid herself of the magic she sees as a curse, it results in her family, the living and the dead, disappearing from this plane.

Reading this so close to Cemetery Boys was interesting. Instead of someone trying to find his place, Alex is desperate to cut herself off from her heritage. Watching her growth as she deals with insecurities was wonderful to see. A little predictable, but lots of fun. 🌕🌕🌕🌕🌑

This book has some very mixed reviews, but I was impressed enough that I will continue the series. Witches, a diverse POC cast, family love, a believable bisexual character, rich fantasy with a lot of adventure… what‘s not to love? I listened to the audio and really loved narration. Very fun magical YA.

This was my #LatinxAuthor book for #Booked2021, listened in August.

I just couldn‘t get into this one. However, I think if the right person would read it, it would be a good book. I really wanted to love it and there‘s a cliffhanger at the end, but I don‘t think my curiosity will ever be strong enough to pick up the next one. Still thankful for #booked2021 for pushing me to read outside my comfort zone #latinxauthor #seriesread #litsyatoz #c

3.2 🌟

The book was okay. Totally like the 1st and 2nd part, but after that it's a bit downhill. The triangle love is confusing, and not really necessary.
What I love about this book is the descriptions of Hell or Los Lagos is really beautiful, and rather like the scenes from Coco movie.

30% into the book

So far it's okay, Alex is a sixteen year old bruja, who's hidden her power. After years of hiding, nearing her Deathday she is revealed as an Enchantrix, a super powerful do-it-all magic.
Due to traumatic experiences in the past, Alex is afraid of her power and during her Deathday she's doing a reversal ritual to return all her power to Deos but end up sending her entire extended family to hell.

This was fun but fairly slight and formulaic in places. It's been a long time since I was the target age range for YA, and I wasn't into love triangle stories even when I was a teen. On the other hand, I tore through it in two days and it reminded me that I actually do like reading, so overall it's a pick. I'll put the sequel on my list but don't expect to get to it very soon.

effani This was my April #BookSpin book and a great palate cleanser. Thanks, @TheAromaofBooks! 3y

I loved this book!! You really don't have an option to question what's going on as you're thrown into a world where Alex is a bruja and trying to reject her powers before her Deathday. Things don't work out as planned and sometimes we need to realize that what we think of as burdens are really our greatest strengths. #POCMCParanormal #Booked2019 #Autumn

Def appreciate YA fantasy (urban fantasy? magical realism?) w/a different kind of magic than we usually get—brujas & their traditions, powers, & lore, all really interesting & unique. Oddly though, I found the first half of this more intriguing than the rest, even though the latter portion is probably supposed to be more exciting. Pacing was off, & the romance angles were....weirdly handled, IMO. May still read the 2nd one, tho. 3/5 ⭐️

I loved this Dia de los Muertos inspired book! Alex is a bruja and hates having powers. So at her Deathday party, she tries to get rid of them, but ends up sending her family to Los Lagos. Then Alex and her friends have to go to save them. It's not original but it's fun. Plus the classic YA love triangle involves 2 females, so that's new. #YA #fun

This book was definitely different from anything else I have ever read. The amount of imagery that went into this book was fantastic. Alex, for me, had a lot of growth as a character and I loved that. I did find some aspects of the plot towards the end predictable and I felt the ending was rushed. However, the love interest plot twist was FANTASTIC! I will definitely be picking up the sequel.

I started this book today. I will finish either tonight or early tomorrow and then I will buy the sequel tomorrow. It‘s so damn good and I want so much more.

On another note, today was rough. I wont lie. I‘m terrified of whats going to happen. The US has always been deeply flawed and it is heading in the wrong direction when once there was growth. I don‘t have words of encouragement but I‘m holding it together. I hope you are too.

The first of the Brooklyn Brujas trilogy, Labyrinth Lost does a lot of place-setting and introductions of the main family, primarily the three sisters at the core, Alexandra, the heroine in this book, and her sisters, Lula and Rose. I couldn‘t help but think of the upcoming CW reboot of Charmed with an all-Latina cast of sisters. Labyrinth Lost is easy and fun with good twists and just the right amount of teen angst.
