I didn’t know I needed this book. I need this book and all the ones that come after it. I adored this book. Scratch that, I adore this book, since I’m still very well in the process of adoring it. Thank you, Zoraida Cordova for such a fun and memorable book. I’m still dazzled by it.

Move over, Harry Potter. This isn’t your typical witches story. Labyrinth Lost, follows Alex and her journey to rescue her family of brujas and brujos after a canto gone wrong.

I enjoyed reading this book so much! It’s a characteristic hero’s journey with a new take on the (very-loved) trope. The supernatural and otherworldly aspects of the story felt new, different, and they were fun to read about and be introduced too.

One thing I really liked was Alex’s characterization and voice. I think the quote above highlights her voice pretty well. She’s sarcastic and driven, but desperate to rescue her family. Her family’s characterizations felt seemless as well.

Most importantly, I loved the dual-language and the inclusion of Latinx cultural aspects. It felt familiar, but I’m sure readers who aren’t familiar with the language and Latinx cultures will appreciate the book as well.

I definitely recommend Labyrinth Lost to fans of urban fantasy, mythology, and adventure.
