BRUJA BORN, by Zoraida Cordova, Sourcebooks Fire


Three sisters. One spell. Countless dead.

Lula Mortiz feels like an outsider. Her sister’s newfound Encantrix powers have wounded her in ways that Lula’s bruja healing powers can’t fix, and she longs for the comfort her family once brought her. Thank the Deos for Maks, her sweet, steady boyfriend who sees the beauty within her and brings light to her life.

Then a bus crash turns Lula’s world upside down. Her classmates are all dead, including Maks. But Lula was born to heal, to fix. She can bring Maks back, even if it means seeking help from her sisters and defying Death herself. But magic that defies the laws of the deos is dangerous. Unpredictable. And when the dust settles, Maks isn’t the only one who’s been brought back…

I received this ARC in exchange for my honest review.  First off, let’s just admire the cover.  Sure, sure… this is just the ARC cover but hopefully, they will use it–it’s stunning!

Holy Crap Onna Cracker!

Loved, loved, loved… just loved this book to pieces.  Can a witchy book be written any better??? “Practical Magic” creepy dead guy consequences; “Charmed” three sister witchy friction, and mystical and magical to the crazy end.

This is so well-written, so developed perfectly, the MC, Lulu, I just loved getting to know her, watching her character develop, and UGH!  The premise!!!!! The first book of the series was cataclysmic in perfection, but this one–even better!

New consequences, new characters, new disasters… family support and relations you envy.  Love it! Read it!
