Bruja Born (Brooklyn Brujas #2) Reviews
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
Here is my review for Labyrinth Lost (Brooklyn Brujas, #1) ★★★★
Buddy read with Alexis, Lori, and Melanie!
I really enjoyed the first book in the Brooklyn Brujas series, Labyrinth Lost. However, Bruja Born is so much different than Labyrinth Lost — but in a good way! Labyrinth Lost took us on a journey through the magical realm of Los Lagos. Alex accidentally cast a spell that sent her entire family to ‘hell’, so she and a brujo named Nova enter that world to save her family.

**I received a copy of this book through NetGalley, which does not influence my review.**

3.5 stars. I’m pretty happy to report that I enjoyed this one more than I expected to! I liked the way that this opened up the world and lore of the brujas and their magic, and I enjoyed the visuals and action of this story too. Looking forward to Rose’s story! And maybe Nova’s? I’m down for more brujas and brujos.

"She never asked for this, but she bore the weight of the world in silence, her strength reaching all those souls who didn't know where to find her."
OH MY GOD. THE DAY IS FINALLY HERE!!!!! I finally get to share my review with the world! I've been holding on to my thoughts for MONTHS! I read this back in February and I have thought about this book at least once a day ever since!
If there was one book in my entire life that I would recomm ...more
This was so much fun
Bruja Born picks up right after the events of the first book. The book focuses of the other Mortiz sister. Lula.
This book is the perfect sequel to Labyrinth Lost. One of my favorite things about this book as the Lula's mental health was portrait. Because after the Los Lagos incident it is clear it took emotional and physical strength from Lula.
I have to stay I really enjoyed this book. It was fast paced, full of action and I absolutely love the family aspect. As a Latina, its so important to se ...more
i wish i could give it more stars but sadly... meh
