Description


Don't miss the highly acclaimed Latinx-infused Queer fantasy that kicked off a trend from decorated author Zoraida Cordova

The Brooklyn Brujas series follows three sisters--and witches--as they develop their powers and battle magic in their hometown and worlds beyond

Alex is a bruja and the most powerful witch in her family. But she's hated magic ever since it made her father disappear into thin air. So while most girls celebrate their Quincea era, Alex prepares for Death Day--the most important day in a bruja's life and her only opportunity to rid herself of magic.

But the curse she performs during the ceremony backfires, and her family vanishes, forcing Alex to absorb all of the magic from her family line. Left alone, Alex seeks help from Nova, a brujo with ambitions of his own.

To get her family back they must travel to Los Lagos, a land in-between, as dark as Limbo and as strange as Wonderland. And while she's there, what she discovers about herself, her powers, and her family, will change everything...

Labyrinth Lost (Book 1): Alex's story--set in the mythical fantasy world of Los Lagos
Bruja Born (Book 2): Lula's story--urban fantasy set on the streets of Brooklyn
Wayward Witch (Book 3): Rose's story--set in the magical fairy realm of Adas
