"Zoraida Cordova's prose enchants from start to finish. "Labyrinth Lost" is pure magic.
" - --Melissa Grey, author of The Girl at Midnight"

"A brilliant brown-girl-in-Brooklyn update on Alice in Wonderland and Dante's Inferno. Very creepy, very magical, very necessary." - --Daniel Jose Older, author of Shadowshaper "

Labyrinth Lost is a fun, world-traversing novel with a unique setting and cast, and a sense of wit. It lacks, however, staying power, and is ultimately let down by the mediocre prose structure and rushed pacing. And though the romance is sweet and lovely, most of the characters are forgettable. Not likely to read the sequel.

When I first heard about Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Córdova, I was so eager to read it. An #OwnVoices novel with Latin American witches? Sold! But, sadly, this book just wasn't for me.

I probably should have known, with Los Lagos being described as "as dark as Limbo and as strange as Wonderland." I am not a fan of Alice in Wonderland because it's just too weird, too much weird, and Los Lagos has that similar feel. Alex has to travel through Los Lagos to get to the labyrinth where her family are being held by The Devourer, who, during the eclipse, will drink their power through the Tree of Souls. But on her way there with Nova, she comes across obstacle after obstacle. The creatures were fine - the avianas, which are kind of like bird-women, and the adas, who are practically fae - but it's just the one thing after another.

And considering the danger they're in most of the time, they get out of scrapes too easily, they've got past an obstacle before you know it. And there were just too many things I felt weren't explained well enough. Alex will create an orb of light, or she'll shoot magic out of her hands... but how? How is she doing that? There's no real explanation as to how she uses her magic, she just does. And for someone who has been forcing down her magic for so long and not using it, she knows exactly what to do with it when it's needed. There is no, "XYZ would be the perfect solution right now, but I don't know how to do that!" She just does it. She reaches for her magic, and it happens. And then they move on.

I also found things were a little too easy, too convenient in other ways to be believable. When Rishi, Alex's best friend who she is in love with, finds out that Alex is a bruja, there's complete acceptance.

Oh my Goodness, so this was one of the first books I ever requested and was accepted for on NetGalley. I let it sit there for a while and then there was a lot of hype and I still hadn't read it yet. Then I read it. I loved it so much. I'm white so, as I do with all novels that feature characters with a different racial background to me, I might say something wrong, if I have please let me know and I will endeavour to fix it!

So Alex is a young girl in a family of Brujas (latinx witches) and she is about to come of age and gain her full powers. Alex, however, doesn't want to be a witch and so performs a spell at her Deathday party in attempt to rid herself of her powers, but it backfires and all her family are gone. She needs to go to the world of Limbo which isn't quite death but isn't life either to rescue them.

There is some really cool diversity in this because not only is it in a Latinx community, but the MCs best friend is Guyanese, a place I hadn't really thought about in terms of the people who live there. Not only is she Guyanese but she's also of Indian descent and learning about that led me to looking up Guyana and finding out that the population of Guyana are majority Indian descent and had I not read this book I never would have learned this, which I thought was super cool. And she's a Hindu! Not only is there racial diversity but there's also Bi representation which made me incredibly happy but god damn do we need more good bi representation. What I loved about it was that Alex is bi but its just a thing there's no big reveal there's no "coming out" she just is.

I loved the characters, they were so multifaceted. The MC starts off super bratty but through her journey she grows, she learns to accept people into her life and her secrets.

Title: Labyrinth Lost

Author: Zoraida Córdova

Genre: YA, Fantasy, Witches, LGBTQ+ (M/F and F/F)

Series: Brooklyn Brujas #1

A few starting notes:

I received a free digital review copy of this book via NetGalley. NetGalley provides review copies from publishers as an opportunity for reviewers to provide fair and honest reviews.

You know sometimes there are books where you hear the premise and just have to read it?

This book was like that for me. I'm guessing it'll tempt a lot of other people too ;)

Premise:

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

Alex is a bruja (a Latinx witch,) whose Deathday is coming up (this is a lot less fatal than it sounds.)

Her Deathday will mean accepting her powers and her legacy. But... what if she doesn't want to? Is that even an option?

Alex will have to face the consequences of her actions, and, along with local brujo (dude-witch) Nova, will have to face the dangers of the realm of Los Lagos.

Best bits:

I know people say this a lot - but this is a page-turner.

It's pacey, it's got a chatty but fairly confident tone... and you'll totally want to know what happens next.

The rules governing magic here are clearly understood by the author - you're in safe hands, because she knows this world inside and out.
