Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Really Disappointed"
    What disappointed you about Labyrinth Lost?

    I really expected a lot more from this than I got. It was full of YA tropes like the brooding bad boy and the chosen one but it brought nothing new to them.


    Has Labyrinth Lost put you off other books in this genre?

    Yes, I think I'll be avoiding most YA fantasy from now on.


    Any additional comments?

    The world was interesting and ownvoices Latinex fiction is important but this just isn't a strong example of it.

    "engaging story"

    I loved it, but I admit I struggled with some parts. I loved that it was a story by, for and centered on latinx culture. I adored that Alex, the mc, was bisexual and liked both her love interests were of color, despite one of them being passing.

    It was also cool that she was reluctant to be a receiver of her great power, and wasn't just "ready" like a bunch of ya books.

    The parts I struggled with only centered on the way eurocentric features were exhaulted over the latter. Nova had blue-green eyes, and his features were often described with much more flattering tags than brown eyes and skin.

    Alex even went as far to say she was plain because she had brown eyes. Sigh...

    As an afro-latinx person, I totally understand our culture does blend a number of cultures, but a lot of the black people were in passing, had skin described as food or night, or were kind of magical negros(I'm sure it wasn't intentional).

    It may not be as obvious to non-black latinx folx, but you can always tell by the description tags when an author isn't black.

    I would've given it a five had it not been for that. I loved it so much, its just when it rubs you wrong, it affects your feeling about the story.

    Before I go though, I loved that Rishi, Alex's bestie and crush was Indo-Guyanese, you hardly ever see desis of Guyanese origin in mainstream novels.

    For those curious, Alex is Mexican and Puerto Rican (with Ecuadorian and Panamanian origin) because I'm Caribbean afro-latinx, so I like to know that kind of thing. This reminded me of Disney's Brave, and Brave was so amazing, do that's a testament to how much I enjoyed!

    "Good book, non Spanish speaker narrator "

    There are quite a bit of Spanish words this narrator couldn't pronounce, which sometimes ruined the flow of the book. As a Spanish speaker, I think this is really important. Please cast someone who can pronounce Spanish words.

    "Absolutely perfect"

    I don't really have words for how wonderful this book was. Intersectionally feminist with a wholly unique plot, and beautiful prose to boot. I don't know if there will be more in this series. While I'd be thrilled if there were, this is also a beautiful stand-alone.

    "Convoluted plot, unmotivated characters"

    Didn't make that much sense. I wanted to like it because of the diversity and culture behind it but all that rich mythology was squashed into obstacles for the (very whiny and not very smart) protagonist. Great idea, badly written.
