TITLE: Labyrinth Lost
AUTHOR: Zoraida Córdova
SUMMARY: Alex is a bruja -- a magic-user -- and she's the most powerful in a generation. The only problem is, she hates magic. Desperate to rid herself of her gift, Alex tries to perform a cantos that would rid her of her power. Not only does it not work, it backfires, and her entire family vanishes into thin air. Forced to team up with someone she doesn't trust, Alex needs to learn how to control her gift, and rescue her family.
HOW FAR I GOT: 126/326 pages
WHY I DIDN'T FINISH: This is definite "It's not you... it's me" thing. I thought that the magic system was really cool, and I LOVED the fact that the entire cast is Latinx, and that the main character is bisexual. Diversity is fantasy that is SORELY needed. But, unfortunately, I just couldn't get into this book. I had trouble connecting to the characters, and I had to force myself to keep reading. So, while I'm glad a lot of other people enjoy this book, it's not my thing, and I will not be continuing on with the rest of the series.
