Review: Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Córdova

Labyrinth Lost
by Zoraida Córdova
Hardcover, 336 pages
Expected publication: September 6th 2016
by Sourcebooks Fire

"Enchanting and complex. Every page is filled with magic."-Danielle Paige, New York Times best-selling author of Dorothy Must Die


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

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 marks 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...



Praise for Labyrinth Lost:

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

"Magical and empowering, Labyrinth Lost is an incredible heroine's journey filled with mythos come to life; but at its heart, honors the importance of love and family." -Cindy Pon, author of Serpentine and Silver Phoenix

"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 magical story of love, family, and finding yourself. Enchanting from start to finish." -Amy Tintera, author of Ruined.






This was a great read! I am not familiar with Zoraida Córdova's writing, or her books, but I am a huge fan of witches and magic, and that is the main reason why I picked this one up. 

This story is non-stop from beginning to end, and filled with TONS of magic! Super entertaining! There wasn't one moment where I felt the story dragged, or stopped and wasn't moving along. Each chapter was a set-up for the next. 

Everything about Labyrinth Lost was so easy to picture in my head. Zoraida did an amazing job putting into words each world/section that Alex & Nova enter while in Los Lagos. It had a nice little twist towards the end that completely blew my mind. I SO did not see that coming!

I also really liked the Spanish background Zoraida added to the story. I am hispanic and grew up with a mother who was a bruja. Let me tell you, some of the things in this book brought back a lot of memories. LOL! 

Anyway, this story is a MUST-READ! 


4 Stars!!!
