“My breath catches at the sight of the scars, red like a nest of snakes settled on his chest. I hold my hand over his heart. I release a pulse of magic. His heartbeat reacts to it, like he recognizes me.

I enjoyed Zoraida Córdova’s Bruja Born, the sequel to Labyrinth Lost, even more than the first novel and feel like I’ve gotten a better grasp on the characters thanks to this book. If you like magic and sister relationships, this is the series to pick up. Read my review here. Cover is linked to Goodreads.

From the Goodreads Synopsis:

      “Three sisters. One spell. Countless dead.
      Lula Mortiz feels like an outsider. Her sister’s newfound Encantrix powers have wounded her in ways that Lula’s bruja healing powers can’t fix, and she longs for the comfort her family once brought her. Thank the Deos for Maks, her sweet, steady boyfriend who sees the beauty within her and brings light to her life.
      Then a bus crash turns Lula’s world upside down. Her classmates are all dead, including Maks. But Lula was born to heal, to fix. She can bring Maks back, even if it means seeking help from her sisters and defying Death herself. But magic that defies the laws of the deos is dangerous. Unpredictable. And when the dust settles, Maks isn’t the only one who’s been brought back…”

  1. I haven’t read this or the first book yet, but I do want to. I do have a soft spot for books featuring magic. I hope you have a great weekend!
