It’s been quite a while since my last review, hasn’t it? Let me just step slowly back into it. How am I supposed to write reviews again? Oh right, this one is going to be a little different; I’ll give you bullet points to what I liked and didn’t like about LL, but just read on to see what I mean! I couldn’t decide which cover to include, so I went with these two, both absolutely unique and beautiful in their own way.

Goodreads blurb: I was chosen by the Deos. Even gods make mistakes.
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, but who may be Alex’s only chance at saving her family.
Why I was interested:
- Witches. Or how they’re called in the book, Brujas. It was actually my first book about witches, very enjoyable to read.
- Diverse characters and author! I’ve been trying to read more books from and about diverse characters/authors, so this was perfect.
- The plot overall sounded amazing and everyone who read it until before I got around to it was excited and happy with it.
What I liked:
- The characters!
- The diversity!
- LGBT being included!
- The plot!
- There were very few moments I felt like the story was rushed. I like taking my time with the characters instead of being thrown from one scene into the other.
What I didn’t like:
- The fight scenes… weren’t built up enough. They seemed to be over too fast and easy. There was no real struggle. As if the enemy wasn’t strong enough.
- (The fact that I don’t have any other thing to complain about. I really, really, really enjoyed this book.)
- Readers of The Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa.
- Any- and everyone who is interested in witches.
Rating: 3.5/5 stars
