Waiting On Wednesday #154 - Labyrinth Lost

Waiting On Wednesday, where we put the spotlight on upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating, is hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine.

This week's choice is -


Labyrinth Lost (Brooklyn Brujas #1) - Zoraida Cordova
ISBN - 9781492620945
Publisher - Sourcebooks Fire
Release date - September 6 2016

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.


I must admit to not reading anything by Cordova prior to this, although I do have The Vicious Deep on my TBR pile, but I was seeing this everywhere so had to check it out. I absolutely love the cover and the synopsis makes it sound like something I would love. Ignoring the comparison to Beautiful Creatures (which I liked but didn't love) this one will definitely be on the wishlist!
