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…
Where do I even start with this wonderfulness?
After the events of Labyrinth Lost, Lula Mortiz (sister to Alex) is still healing, not only physically but mentally. Her sisters heal her each day before school, but it’s not enough to get her through.
I loved watching Lula struggle. After the accident, when she sees… someone… the plot really starts rolling. Lula’s desire to save her boyfriend, to cling to something normal in the wake of her magical life, felt truly human.
We were also introduced more to magical Brooklyn and the community of witches, among other things. Meeting the Elders and talking more with outcast witches built the world out past Los Lagos (where we spent book one) and also gave us some more rules for the the Mortiz girls to break.
The middle sags ever so slightly but it’s well worth the read. I laughed, I considered crying (as you all well know I am a heartless monster so I didn’t actually cry), and I happily add it to our BookRecs category.
