Can’t Wait Wednesday – Spotlight on BRUJA BORN by Zoraida Cordova
“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about. It is a meme that I have loved participating in for over a year now, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll just be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is BRUJA BORN by Zoraida Cordova. Labyrinth Lost, the first book in this series, was such an amazing read that I just can’t wait to get my hands on the second book in the series, which follows one of the other sisters in the Mortiz family. I remember reading last year that the author created this series because she wanted a Latina version of the TV series Charmed so I like the idea that each book will focus on a different sister.
BRUJA BORN by Zoraida Cordova
Publication Date: June 5, 2018
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…

I’d love to hear what upcoming book releases you’re waiting on this Wednesday? Leave me your link in the comments below and I’ll stop by and check out your CWW selection for this week. 🙂
I really enjoyed Labyrinth Lost and am eager to see where Cordova is going with this story. I am also a fan of sibling series. I like that each book features a different sister, while still telling the overall story.
I’m curious too, especially after the first book had almost an Alice in Wonderland vibe at times.
I’ve been side-eyeing this book. I do like the sound of it but wasn’t sure if I was supposed to have read the others in the series first.
Hope you enjoy.
This is only the second book in the series so you’re not far behind, but yeah I think I’d probably read Labyrinth Lost before I tried to read this one.
I’m sad that I haven’t read Labyrinth Lost, I love that there is a sequel. I must catch up soon!
I hope you enjoy the series once you start reading!
Still need to read the first one and while I wish the covers matched more, this one is gorgeous on its own. Hope you love it!
I was thinking the same thing about the covers. This one is lovely too, but it’s definitely not at all similar to Labyrinth Lost’s cover.
I’m SO curious now and I’ll have to put my hands on Labyrinth Lost, especially after reading your comment! I mean, a sort of Alice in Wonderland vibe? I’m in!
Thanks for sharing, here’s my WoW 🙂
I hope you enjoy Labyrinth Lost. It was a wild ride for me and I just flew through the pages.
This sounds like such a fun series. I haven’t read Labyrinth Lost or this one yet, but this sounds like a series I want to check out! Thanks for sharing!
The first book was so good. I definitely recommend it.
I really like the premise and managed to miss the start of this series – that said, right now I’m a tad swamped… But I will keep an eye on this one and in the meantime, I hope you enjoy it!
Thanks, I hope so too!
Yes! I can’t wait for this!
Same! I really hope it’s as good as the first book was.
This book and series sounds great! Adding it to my wish list. Hope you enjoy it a lot!

Oh, I loved the first one so I’m definitely excited for another book in the series, and it’s cool that it focuses on a different sister.
This sounds good, and I always like stories with forbidden magic, especially if used for a good purpose. Looks fun!
Wow, that cover is stunning! And the premise sounds very interesting! I’m really in the mood for anything magic related lately!
Whew, this sounds like it’ll me emotionally spent and wanting more to be honest — and book 2 already? I wish I could stop being surprised at how quickly books are coming out, but I’m always, always surprised lol
It always surprises me too. I think back to just a few years ago even and it seemed like the wait between books in a series was years.
I also really love that these books will focus on each sister. It’s such a cool way to do a series.
I really love that aspect of it too, especially since I definitely wanted to know more about the other two sisters while reading Labyrinth Lost.
I really need to read book 1. I am waiting on The Belles.
I can’t wait to read The Belles either. It sounds so good!
