I enjoyed the first book “Labyrinth Lost” (review here) which was told from Alex Mortiz’s POV and full of Latinx magic and mythology, it’s a fantastic book overall. I was a bit skeptical when I found out the sequel would be

I wish I liked this book better but it was mostly a disappointment. I liked the beginning and I enjoyed the originality of the novel. But Lula as a protagonist annoyed me to no end. She was in no way an older sister to her siblings and was continuously selfish, rash and ungrateful. She also made Alex feel so much guilt while Lula herself messed up much harder and refused to actually resolve the problem and ask for help which obviously made the situation so much worse. I think the endin

I received a free ARC from Sourcebooks FIREreads. I enjoyed Labyrinth Lost a lot, and I wish this series was getting more attention from the YA crowd. It’s ownvoices with Latinx characters and a f/f relationship in the first book, plus a beautifully drawn magical world. I can’t really oversell it. There may be mild spoilers ahead for Labyrinth Lost. Trigger warnings: death, gore.

Months after Alex’s spell banished her family to Los Lagos, the Mortiz sisters haven’t quite recovered. Lula hides her

This whole book read like a super awesome blockbuster movie that I NEED to see asap. It all builds up into the most epic showdown, but it's so much more than just an action-packed rollercoaster of fun.

Lula has physical and emotional scars from everything that happened in Los Lagos in the previous book and is trying to learn how to deal with everything. She faces some big challenges throughout the story and has so much amazing character growth that I wanted to cheer out loud for her a few times.

Bruja Born was a deeply insightful and touching exploration of grief, guilt, and the lengths people go to for love. I loved that this book was focused on Lula instead of Alex. While I liked Alex as a main character, I thought that Lula had so much more depth. She faced so many difficult challenges and her character growth was just amazing. Plus I was able to connect with her more, which made this story even more engrossing. I also like how focused on family this series is, it’s a nice change of ...more

I’ve never been a fan of zombies. But casimuertos, I like! This book was full of action, from the start. I loved it like the first one and probably like the third one that I can’t wait to read. 2019 is too far away!!! I also loved how the story is told from a different character: in the first book, you live through Alex, and now, through Lula. Can’t wait to see who it will be for book 3! Rose, Nova or Patricio?

I received an e-copy of this book from the publisher, through NetGalley, in exchange

I loved coming back to this incredible series. BRUJA BORN escalates and elevates the stakes for Lula Mortiz and her family, in a story that challenges how we think about love and loss. Lula is a girl on a precipice, but she is never abandoned, and it’s a powerful thing to see.
