SYNOPSIS

Nothing says Happy Birthday like summoning the spirits of your dead relatives.

I fall to my knees. Shattered glass, melted candles and the outline of scorched feathers are all that surround me. Every single person who was in my house – my entire family — is gone.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 markings 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… Beautiful Creatures meets Daughter of Smoke and Bone with an infusion of Latin American tradition in this highly original fantasy adventure.

 

 

MY THOUGHTS

For months now I have been searching for a book about witches. I love fantasy and I always gravitate towards books about witches. The hunt was on and I was just about to give up on when I won Labyrinth Lost in a giveaway! As soon as I saw the cover and read the words “burja” I knew this was the perfect book for me.

Can we take a moment to discuss the cover? Isn’t it just beautiful! I can’t stop staring at it. And then I remember this is just the ARC and I wonder what the finished copy is going to look like. Not only is the cover amazing but the inside of the book has been crafted to perfection. The attention to detail is immaculate and each chapter has a quote pertaining to the book. I won’t spoil it for you because you just have to experience it for yourself!

From the beginning this book was action packed. At no point in this book did I want to take a pause and go do something else. I just kept wanting more. This is so rare for me that when it happens I do something completely embarrassing… I may or may not hug the book and squeal.
