Bruja magic runs in her blood, but a curse meant to banish it may cost Alex more than her power…

Alex is a bruja and the most powerful witch in her family. But she’s hated magic ever since it made her father disappear into thin air. So while most girls celebrate their Quinceañera, Alex prepares for Death Day—the most important day in a bruja’s life, and her only opportunity to rid herself of magic.

But the curse she performs during the ceremony backfires and her family vanishes, forcing Alex to absorb all of the magic from her family line. Left alone, Alex seeks help from Nova, a brujo with ambitions of his own. To get her family back they must travel to Los Lagos, a land in-between, as dark as Limbo and as strange as Wonderland...


I finished this book in 2 days I loved it.  Mythical, magical and inspiring.  Alex doesn't want to be different so as she prepares for her Death Day she decides to try to rid herself of magic.  This of course backfires in many ways.  In order to bring her family back she has to navigate Los Lagos, a land that is being ravaged by the Devourer, an evil presence that has been sucking the life out of Los Lagos. It is now up to Alex to save her family, protect her friends and save Los Lagos.  In order to do this she must accept herself as who she is, believe in herself and accept her magic.

Traveling with a boy she barely knows or trusts and stumbling upon her best friend who followed her unknowingly into this other world this is a story of belief in yourself, acceptance for who you are and doing what is in your heart.

Well written story that is filled with lots of mythological lore and stories of Gods, and mystical beasts.  This book holds your attention it makes you care about the characters.  I don't know if this book is supposed to be a series but there was a serious cliffhanger at the end.
