Labyrinth Lost (Brooklyn Brujas #1) (Hardcover)
This book was one of the most original ideas I have read in a long time. I loved learning more about the culture, and this world kept me enchanted and engaged. These were characters I could relate with, and I could care about. This novel was completely spellbinding! I am excited (and a little scared) to see what Zoraida Cordova would come up with next!— Alina, TC Teen Advisory Board member
Alex is the most powerful bruja, or witch, of her generation, but she hates her powers. When she tries to rid herself of her magic at her Deathday celebration, she accidentally causes her whole family to disappear, and the only other person who can help get them back is Nova, a mysterious boy she just met. A suspenseful story full of magic, this novel will keep you guessing right up to the last page.— Arden, TC Teen Advisory Board member
The only way to get her family back is to travel to a land in between, as dark as Limbo and as strange as Wonderland...
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's not sure she can trust, but who may be Alex's only chance at saving her family.
