"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. When a curse she performs to rid herself of magic backfires and her family vanishes, she must travel to Los Lagos, a land in-between as dark as Limbo and as strange as Wonderland, to get her family back"--

 

Review:

“Labyrinth Lost” is a fun adventure revolving around a bruja and her friends.

I loved the rich world that the author built-in the alternate dimension Alex and her friends found themselves in.  It was imaginative and seemed to pop right off of the page.  The plot moved quickly, making it a very quick read.  My only problem is that there is one plot point well-developed throughout the book with a sudden twist that made zero sense thrown in at the end.  I get wanting the element of surprise, but the author should have given at least a bit of development to the twist if that is where she wanted to go.  As written, it seemed like an afterthought.  I wish I could further explain but don’t want to give away any spoilers.

“Labyrinth Lost” is a good start to a series about magic and adventure.  I recommend it to anyone upper middle school and up looking for a fun, fast read.
