Bruja Born (Brooklyn Brujas #2) Reviews
First, I much mention right out the gate that I much preferred this novel in comparison to "Labyrinth Lost". One of my biggest issues with the original novel was that I became confused in how the different language was used with the assumption that the reader would simply understand. That issue was resolved in this sequel and it was done amazingly well, allowing a different language to be integrated in the story with small explanations subtly coinciding with their use.
As well, I really enjoyed ...more
I received a free ARC from Sourcebooks FIREreads. I enjoyed Labyrinth Lost a lot, and I wish this series was getting more attention from the YA crowd. It’s ownvoices with Latinx characters and a f/f relationship in the first book, plus a beautifully drawn magical world. I can’t really oversell it. There may be mild spoilers ahead for Labyrinth Lost. Trigger warnings: death, gore.
Months after Alex’s spell banished her family to Los Lagos, the Mortiz sisters haven’t quite recovered. Lula hides her ...more
very good, I liked it even more than the first one!
I’ve never been a fan of zombies. But casimuertos, I like! This book was full of action, from the start. I loved it like the first one and probably like the third one that I can’t wait to read. 2019 is too far away!!! I also loved how the story is told from a different character: in the first book, you live through Alex, and now, through Lula. Can’t wait to see who it will be for book 3! Rose, Nova or Patricio?
I received an e-copy of this book from the publisher, through NetGalley, in exchange ...more
This was so much fun
OH MY GODS
REVIEW TO COME
Bruja Born was a deeply insightful and touching exploration of grief, guilt, and the lengths people go to for love. I loved that this book was focused on Lula instead of Alex. While I liked Alex as a main character, I thought that Lula had so much more depth. She faced so many difficult challenges and her character growth was just amazing. Plus I was able to connect with her more, which made this story even more engrossing. I also like how focused on family this series is, it’s a nice change of ...more
Bruja Born is the second book in the urban fantasy series Brooklyn Brujas, and one of the best YA fantasy novels I've read this year.
I almost didn't read this. The first book, Labyrinth Lost, followed middle sister Alex. I read it when I was Alex's age, and I still found both the narration and the writing to be very juvenile, the plot predictable.
I didn't have any of these problems with Bruja Born, and I think this book is worth reading even if you were disappointed by Labyrinth Lost. This nove ...more
