This series is steeped in Latinx culture and places a strong emphasis on family with realistic feeling sister dynamics. I can't say too much without spoilers, but Wayward Witch feels more akin to Labyrinth Lost as it involves a portal fantasy element where Rose must find her power, decide who she will become, and maybe experience her first kiss along the way. It moves along at a fast pace with a lushly described world, danger, violence, but always hope. It's also body positive with good fat representation, and I love that for teenagers. We are also introduced to a new character who is non-binary, and this definitely leaves the door open for future installments, even if none are currently scheduled. I found this to be enjoyable and would recommend the entire series as a great option, particularly for teens. YA is sometimes written with an older audience in mind, but with Brooklyn Brujas that isn't so much the case. I received an advance copy of this book for review via NetGalley. All opinions are my own. Content Warnings include peril, betrayal, death, rituals, monster violence.

Rosie is sassy and smart and a fun character to read about. She's confident in her body and doesn't let things keep her down. She cares so much about her family and I loved her inner thoughts about what her sisters would think about her situation. I also enjoyed the history of the land and seeing Rosie trust herself and develop her powers. There are a lot of characters and sometimes I got confused as to who was who, especially with them being different species and having unique names. I did like Rosie's crush on Arco and her friendship with Lin. Shout out for non-binary/gender fluid representation! The ending was a little choppy and I wasn't sure what was going on with a certain character, but I'm sure it will be cleaned up by the final draft. I know this is the final book in the trilogy, but I have questions and Nova's storyline is still wide open so I'm really hoping for a spin off! I received an advanced copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    Two and half years ago, I read book 1 in this series featuring three bruja sisters. The first one had Alex journeying through a hostile fairy land to free her vanquished family. Book 2 told the story of how the oldest sister, Lula, dealt with her unfortunate decision to bring back her boyfriend from the dead. Book 3 is about the youngest sister, Rose, and is definitely the best written of the three. The author briefly touches on the past books but then dives headfirst into Wayward Witch. At first Two and half years ago, I read book 1 in this series featuring three bruja sisters. The first one had Alex journeying through a hostile fairy land to free her vanquished family. Book 2 told the story of how the oldest sister, Lula, dealt with her unfortunate decision to bring back her boyfriend from the dead. Book 3 is about the youngest sister, Rose, and is definitely the best written of the three. The author briefly touches on the past books but then dives headfirst into Wayward Witch. At first, it seems that we’re getting a rehash of Alex’s venture, a 15 year old bruja forced into a mystical land, but Rose and her band of fellow magical heroes aren’t just a collective of power. They’re sunlit and star infused beings who are barely grown, vulnerable youth trying to shine and fulfill their promise. They’ve been kidnapped by the corrupt Bastard King of Adas who enthralls a few of the populace with merriment and greed, distracting them from his vile treatment and enslavement of the majority. His evil heart has fouled the land and the putridness is literally eating away at the lush paradise. Rose and her found family together must use their magic to fight away the Rot and save Adas. As always, Córdova’s world building and nonstop action is wondrous. Rose’s two royal companions, twins Arco and Iris, are passionate and swoon worthy champions to the cause against their father. I would recommend to fantasy fans, especially ones looking for beautiful language and diverse characters. Because Rose is a bit younger, there’s no romance other than crushes. Hopefully, the author revisits Rose and Adas in a few years. Arc received from publisher in exchange for an honest review.

When adas abduct Rose and her father and drag them into the fairy realm, Rose finds out that her father has lied to them all this time. He didn't forget.

And the secrets he hid were bigger than she ever could have imagined. I think I built my expectations too high, and it did not live up to my internal hype. It was still enjoyable, but I skimmed a lot of the story. Lots of elements were fantastic, but overall it felt stereotypical of a lot of YA fantasy in a way the previous two books didn't. There was the warrior-fairy princess. There was the cobbled together Guardians who were supposed to be a team but never managed to click together (I think this was due to me skimming). There was the love interest who was kinda a love interest but I was really meh over. There were a whole bunch of other characters and I was struggling over the timeline of events, which kept changing and made me go, wait, when did this happen? A couple years ago or several centuries ago? Anywho, I feel that most of my frustration lay with the YA-samesies of the story. I felt the same way with Shielded. I felt this one pulled from way too many other places and just didn't stand on its own. But again, this is entirely to do with me, because I was in a slumpy mood while reading it and honestly skimmed quite a bit of the story. I did love the mythology and the ending portions, and I loved Rose's magic. I loved the wrapping of the Latinx fairy land, and how the realm was set on an island in the Caribbean. I loved a lot of the characters in the story. I loved the winged horses, although I felt they needed more page time. I am just tired of immortal fairies who act like teenagers and ferocious fairy kings with paper-thin personalities and motivations. And immortals falling for teenagers. I received this ARC from NetGalley for an honest review.

The ones who see what’s going on in their family and doing their best to keep everything together, or at least semi normal. Also I was/am Rose at most family gatherings, and I felt that to my core! The ending was bittersweet in a way that is perfect for this series, and left just a bit unfinished that I hope readers might get to revisit sometime soon!

    And thus one of my favorite YA trilogies comes to an end. Wayward Witch is the third and final(?) book of the Brooklyn Brujas series. In the first book, Alejandra "Alex" Mortiz accidentally banishes her family on her Deathday, afraid of her ecantrix powers. She journeyed to Los Lagos with a brujo Nova and her friend (later girlfriend) Rishii to find them.

In the first book, Alejandra "Alex" Mortiz accidentally banishes her family on her Deathday, afraid of her ecantrix powers. She journeyed to Los Lagos with a brujo Nova and her friend (later girlfriend) Rishii to find them. In the second book, Alex's older sister Lula survives a bus crash that kills her boyfriend and the rest of her classmates. She tries a ritual to bring her boyfriend back only to summon countless undead (casimuertos). In this final book, the youngest sister Rose and her father are abducted to a dying fairy island called Adas as her new found Siphon powers are believed to defend the island from the rot. I really didn't want this story to end, mostly because I didn't want the series end. It isn't 100% confirmed the series is over, I'm really really REALLY hoping Nova gets his own book (more on that later). Each of the books is a coming-of-age story, and Rose's story is no different. She is partially mad at her father because he reveals that he has retained memories from when he was gone during the first book but never told anybody. Their relationship parallels Iris and Arco's, the princess and prince of Adas, relationship with their own father the King of Adas. The King of Adas is a cruel man who killed and imprisoned his own father for the crown. He mistreats Iris and Arco and many of his subjects. Rose, Arco, and Iris go on a journey across Adas to fend back the aforementioned rot. During that journey they learn about each other, encounter new threats and lose many friends and Rose tries to understand her Siphon powers which terrify her and the others. We also have a call back to the first book where we learn the Destroyer was a Siphon like Rose. Along the way, Rose befriends a half-fairy brujex named Lin who can create portals who is a delight. Rose's journey, although fast-paced, is a long one. Her feelings over her father, about Iris, and toward Arco all make her feel conflicted against the looming threat of the rot. However, I am a little irked about two things: 1) Although we learn a lot about Rose's father, his relationship with her does not get much detail and I feel like we were robbed of it. He still has character development, but a lot of it is tied to the actions of the plot. 2) Rose and Arco's romance went by way too fast. It was still sweet though. The ending is bittersweet. The King gets his comeuppance--albeit it somewhat too quickly--, we learn what the rot truly is, and Iris becomes queen. However, Arco is tragically killed--I was honestly surprised. We learn that Lin is actually Rose's half-sibling whom her father had when he was originally in Adas years ago. I was shocked too. Rose's story has a satisfying conclusion. But still Nova. Nova leaves at the beginning of the book to go to the Dominican Republic, he still hasn't received a proper Deathday and the magic is slowing killing him. He gives Rose some bracelets for her and her sisters to remember him, at the end he sends them a postcard. Nova remained to me the most interesting character in all these stories and now we need his story. Zoraida Córdova has not ruled out completely a book for him, BUT WE NEED IT!!!! The story of the Mortiz sisters is complete, but not Brooklyn Brujas. You cannot just forget a character like this. In the end the book is about a 3.5/5 stars for me but the overall series is 4/5 stars. I am happy, but yearning.

    Having finally learned the truth about her powers, the youngest Mortiz sister was struggling not only with controlling her gift, but also with finding her place in the family. On her Deathday, Rose and her father were taken back to Adas. There, she was charged with fighting the rot that was destroying the land. As she fought for this world, she learned how to harness her power while also discovering a lot about herself. I am always so sad to say goodbye to a series, and this is one I have loved Having finally learned the truth about her powers, the youngest Mortiz sister was struggling not only with controlling her gift, but also with finding her place in the family.

As she fought for this world, she learned how to harness her power while also discovering a lot about herself. I am always so sad to say goodbye to a series, and this is one I have loved since the very beginning. Córdova did an incredible job with all of these books, and I adored getting to know each and every one of the Mortiz sisters. Like the previous books, this one was packed with action and magic that had my heart pumping. Rose had a difficult task to tackle, but thank goodness she had help. I was quite a fan of the band of Guardians put together to save Adas. They challenged Rose, and though they were not gentle with her, they helped her grow. As the little sister, it was easy for Rose to fade into the background and play the supporting character role, but here, she was forced into a high stakes do-or-die situation, and she rose to the occasion. She had these brilliant moments, which really touched me and also made me quite proud of her. I really enjoyed this book. Though, because this was the finale, I was left a little wanting. The standout elements of this series for me was the familial bond. The second book was one of my favorites, because the entire family banded together for their battle. They spent a lot of time on-page together, and I loved every second of it. I missed that in this book. I was also left with some questions. A VERY big one as a matter of fact. I am still holding out for more Brooklyn Brujas books. I mean, there was a B I G and awesome reveal in this book, and I think that could definitely be explored more. I'm just saying..... Even if I don't get any more books, this series will still rank high for me. Córdova created a fantastic world, and I am grateful I had the opportunity to explore it. I am also happy to have had the pleasure of spending three books with the magnificent Mortiz family. I relished this magical journey, and will fondly remember my time with the Brooklyn Brujas. *ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.

I’ll preface this with saying that I really don’t like the way these books lead off of each other. The end of the last book didn’t line up with the beginning of this one and it almost immediately ruined my reading experience for me. The last book ended with the family doing a canto to bring back their father’s memory and a voice saying something like “no one escapes my realm” or something like that. There was zero mention of the voice and only a passing mention of the ritual that was done. I have a hard time when a book ends in a plot twist and then it doesn’t pick up with that in the next book. It makes it feel like the build up was for nothing. Frankly, this book was kind of boring. I liked Rose’s voice in the first couple of chapters, but as the book went on, it seemed to change. I can’t even fully describe what it was that changed, but it wasn’t a good change. The rest of the story was just kind of dull. Like I never really got pulled in enough to care about who was living or dying. I think there were just too many characters that were meant to be important, but not enough characteristics about them that made them important. It just fell short for me. One of the cool things was the inclusion of a non-binary characters. I thought that was cool and I liked Lin as a character a lot. They were very sweet and loyal. I don’t think Rose would have made it through the things she did without them. I think the plot line between Lin and Rose’s dad was a little unnecessary, but it is what it is. There was a part at the end that was really confusing continuity wise. And this is a spoiler, but at the end when Prince Arco dies he keeps being mentioned as being with his sister and what not after they bury him. It’s never clear if he is actually dead or not. I mean even his death scene ends with him coming back to life and talking. It was never clear and honestly made me extremely frustrated. All in all, I think this was not at all a satisfying end to the series. I think it was because there was no real linear plot to the books. Wayward Witch also still left off with the question of what happened to Nova and whether or not he was going to be able to fix his powers. I, as a reader, was not satisfied with this end.

    Thank you to Edelweiss and the publisher for a chance to review this title ahead of its release date! Wayward Witch is the third installment to the Brooklyn Bruja series that I have ardently followed since Labyrinth Lost was published. Where LL followed Alex and Bruja Born followed Lula, WAYWARD WITCH follows the youngest sister, Rose. WAYWARD WITCH takes us back to another world and as we saw in LABYRINTH LOST, young Rose must find a way to work with what she's given and save those she loves. We Thank you to Edelweiss and the publisher for a chance to review this title ahead of its release date! Wayward Witch is the third installment to the Brooklyn Bruja series that I have ardently followed since Labyrinth Lost was published.

WAYWARD WITCH takes us back to another world and as we saw in LABYRINTH LOST, young Rose must find a way to work with what she's given and save those she loves. We are first back with the Mortiz family as they try to cope with the events of their father returning and not remembering anything that happened back in the fairy realm. Rose doesn't quite feel like she belongs, even on her own Deathday. But during an argument with her father, both he and Rose are suddenly spirited away to Adas, the fairy realm and find themselves in the center of a land in turmoil. Rose is suddenly forced to work with a group to find the root of evil that is slowly destroying the land. She agrees if only to save her father whom the king is keeping a prisoner in exchange. Along the way, she finds friendship in the ragtag group and even family. What I loved about this book was that I was taken back to what I loved about the series. A girl unsure about herself that is suddenly thrust into something that seemed bigger than herself, only to conquer it and come out that much stronger. The conflict within the Mortiz sister as this series went on, is what makes it real. Also, the focus on family and the love they have is what drew me into this series, to begin with. Forewarning, this book does contain a bit of romance, but it does not consume the book. Zoraida, my heart hurt in this one. HOW DARE YOU. Anyway, I am sad this series has come to an end (or has it????) but with the author's next book in my kindle, I am sure I will be sated with her writing for a long time to come.

    The third book in the "Brooklyn Bruja" series seriously surprised me, because I wasn't expecting to travel to this new world populated by fae people, Adas, as Zoraida Cordova has dubbed the Spanish word for them, "Hadas". I loved to see this new realm, its inhabitants, and all that happens there. I felt a bit unfaithful as I ended caring more for this new bunch of people than - almost! - for the previous Brujas we knew and loved!!!

I felt a bit unfaithful as I ended caring more for this new bunch of people than - almost! - for the previous Brujas we knew and loved!!! I liked this idea of learning to see beyond façades, learning about a person by their actins and not the myths and stories they may try to hide behind. Also this sense of unity, of family that the series has in every book, the concept of trust and forgiveness, of being open and explaining how you feel to other people. One concept that has caught my attention constantly is our MC saying "why people don't let themselves cry". As if we feel like we have to hide our feelings, when the natural thing is being honest with everybody but specially ourselves. There is so much to talk about in this book! We have new levels of inclussivenes with a new non binary/gender fluid character, a MC who isn't ashamed of not fitting into society's concept of body weight (we have more than one character that defy such "normativity", and that's cool!), a powerful story about love between mother/daughters, rivalry and love between siblings and all with this new folklore and mythos that Zoraida has spell for us in this book. For me it kinda feels more like a new book, a new series opening, that a final Brujas book, and I'm cool with it if that means we get to see more of this nunch of guys!!!

    This series is SO GOOD! I have liked all three books in the series and I really hope we get another one in the future because I want to read Nova’s story. I really liked Rose at the beginning and I mostly liked her throughout the book, but I felt like her character was reduced to her fear of using her magic and to her comparing herself to her sisters for a big portion of the story and I wish there was a bit more to her character.

Adas, the world this is set in, was captivating and intriguing. The gods and the different magical creatures were so cool and unique. I found Arco and Iris very intriguing from the very beginning. And Lin was such a sweet and amazing character. My favorite part of the book was Rose's relationship with Iris and Lin. Their kind of was a romance in the story, but it was barely there so I really didn’t care, and I honestly would have liked the romance to be between Rose and another side character because I think they had A LOT more chemistry. The reveal about the Rot shocked me so much and I loved it, it was so satisfying.

What I love about this series is not only the fact that it's urban fantasy, which I don't read enough of, but also that their stories are so firmly rooted in family and world building. Sure each story is focused on one of the sisters, but in Wayward Witch we still witness what Rose will do for her family. It becomes even more important our connection to family, our traditions, and memories in this book! Being in Adas in Wayward Witch was a fantastic addition to a wonderful world. There was an edge to the glittering waters, to the unlikely allies we find. But the biggest theme which resonated with me was Rose's quest for the truth and her characterization. Not only does she feel like her family is poised on the edge of a cliff, not sure what will push them over, but she feels that the trust must be told. Rose wonders if she can ever truly be at peace in the silent moments. The ones without fighting and risk. She's always expecting it to crumble around her. full review; https://utopia-state-of-mind.com/revi...

    Rose’s life has been turned upside down. First, she was accidentally trapped in a tree by Alex. Then she had to deal with zombies and everything that came with it thanks to her other sister, Lula. On top of that, she found out that her magic is much different than what she thought it was. Now that her death day has creeped up, she’s convinced her family’s happiness is a band-aid that’s about to be ripped off.

Then she had to deal with zombies and everything that came with it thanks to her other sister, Lula. On top of that, she found out that her magic is much different than what she thought it was. Now that her death day has creeped up, she’s convinced her family’s happiness is a band-aid that’s about to be ripped off. Her father’s return is not what her family imagined it would be, and she’s convinced everyone is just pretending to be happy instead of enjoying the lull before the next big crisis. Then she finds out her father has been lying about not remembering his time in the fairy realm, and it opens a whole new can of worms. I absolutely loved the first two books in the series, so I was excited to read the third and final book in the trilogy. I wish I could say I loved this as much as the previous books. Sadly, I have mixed feelings about this one. Something seems to be missing and I can’t put my finger on what that is other than it felt unfinished when I got to the end. I got to the final chapter and said, “That’s it?” I watched Rose go through so much before finally getting back to her family only to find the closing very rushed and lacking in heart and substance. Unless I’m mistaken and this isn’t the end of the series, this was a pretty lackluster and rushed way to tie up the story in the final chapters. That said, there is a lot of good here. Rose narrates the final book, and it was so much fun to see the world through her eyes. On top of this, we get a whole new cast of characters when she finds herself abducted and taken to a fairy realm called Adas. The descriptions are so beautiful, and the characters are so complex, that I had a lot of fun watching her journey progress. I loved the new characters so much. I wish that more of them were developed more than they were, but not enough to make me feel that any of them were lacking. However, I do think that the fast pace and sheer number of new characters was confusing at times, especially early on. It took me a hot minute to get the characters down because it seemed like someone new was popping up everywhere I turned. It’s also fast paced, but it still somehow left me feeling like a lot and nothing happened at the same time. I came out of the book feeling like I got dropped out of a crazy whirlwind where too much and not enough happened. It’s entirely possible that we’re meant to feel this way, but it’s still a strange feeling. All in all, while the characters and setting is great, I find that this is the weakest link in the series. I hope it turns out that this is not a trilogy because there are a lot of loose ends that have been left open, and I think that there is a lot more story that can be told especially since it feels so unfinished. I’ve got my fingers crossed that a novella or fourth book in the series is something that occurs somewhere down the line.

Rose’s Deathday party should be one of celebration, but she can’t shake the feeling that something isn’t quite right. Her family has done its best to move on from their experiences with Los Lagos and the casimuertos, but Rose can’t let go of all the unanswered questions she has about her father and his missing years and her own new power. When Rose and her father are kidnapped and brought to the Kingdom of Adas, a fairy-land full of creatures both enchanting and cunning, she is ordered to help stop the Rot which has been spreading over its realm. On her journey, Rose grapples with her newly discovered power and the darkness within herself that’s getting harder and harder to deny. Rose’s love for her family and particularly her sisters, Alex and Lula, is apparent, but there is always that voice in the back of her head that says she isn’t as strong or resilient as they are. I loved that Córdova’s fairyland isn’t just a mythical place, but one that has ties to Rose’s realm as it was once an island in the Caribbean. I really enjoyed Rose’s relationship with Iris, the princess of Adas. She is everything Rose doesn’t believe she can ever be. There is a respect that builds between the two that is important to each of their arcs. The author also introduces a non-binary character who calls themselves a brujex and I would love to get another book with Lin at the helm. Wayward Witch is an imaginative and dynamic novel that gives fans of the series a satisfying ending but also a thirst for more books in this world.

Wayward Witch is both expansive and conclusive in its scope - by taking Rose's story out into a faerie realm, but also speaking to the experiences of the three sisters and bringing together things from the whole series. It starts at about 6 months since the end of Bruja Born, and the Mortiz family is now settled in a new house, thanks to the Hunters, and Rose is having her Death Day party. Things are still not quite settled, though, emotionally, as the return of their father has them a bit out of balance, with so many things unsaid and hidden, and her father not opening up about his time in Adas, the faerie realm. Rose, wanting to use the collective magic of her party, tries a truth spell, but it has unintended consequences. Next thing she knows, she and her father are kidnapped and taken to Adas, where she is being recruited as a soldier for the king of Adas, who wants a deadly rot on his lands vanquished. Rose, now knowing that her powers are to pull other powers, not just being a Seer, is reluctant to get involved in the problems of another land. But with her father as a hostage, and the threat of the problem of Adas spilling over into her world, she agrees to become a part of the team of exceptional brujexs who are going to investigate. A large part of the book is their journey to the heart of the land, and Adas being a faerie realm, there is much to explore as a reader. Between Rose's training and their struggles to get past the areas affected, the story also brings up how Rose's older sister's journeys have shaped her own worldview, how their mistakes leading to large consequences has made her a bit afraid to embrace her own potential, and how the similarities between her powers and a dreaded deos in this realm has her even more afraid of it. Their dynamic as a family is also explored to some extent, with the recent changes and how they are coping with it, as well Rose's relationship with her father. I cannot go into much detail about the Adas storyline, because spoilers, but I can say this much - I loved how unpredictable it was and what decisions were made with respect to some character arcs. It did feel like the journey was stretched out so much, when the most interesting things happend at the end of it, but the magic of exploring Adas kept it from being too slow. Overall, it gives a nice conclusion, drawing together their stories in Rose's arc and giving a new beginning to the Mortiz family. Sad to say goodbye (but really hoping for a spin-off novella at least for [redacted] in the future pretty please) but can't deny it was a good and satisfactory conclusion!

    I received a copy of Wayward Witch in exchange for a fair and honest review. Wayward Witch is the third novel in Zoraida Cordova's Brooklyn Brujas series, and it is a whirlwind of a read. This novel is the epitome of change. Things have been changing in Rose's family, and while everyone seems to want to act like it's for the better, Rose can't seem to let it go. Everything seems perfect, until you stare too long at it. Take the reappearance of her father.

Wayward Witch is the third novel in Zoraida Cordova's Brooklyn Brujas series, and it is a whirlwind of a read. This novel is the epitome of change. Things have been changing in Rose's family, and while everyone seems to want to act like it's for the better, Rose can't seem to let it go. Everything seems perfect, until you stare too long at it. Take the reappearance of her father. She just knows there's more going on there. That he truly does remember what happened during the time he was gone. Then there's that whole mess with her new powers, which she has yet to fully get control of. “I take a deep breath, trying to figure out how to explain what I'm feeling. My sisters are pretending everything is square, just like our parents. It's like we got to the end of the storybook and everyone has their happily-ever-afters.” Before I dive into my review, I need to make a confession. I didn't realize that this was the third book in a series. Bad me! So I actually have not read the first two books (Labyrinth Lost and Bruja Born). Both of these are now on my TBR list (and I plan on rereading Wayward Witch at that point as well). Despite that goof, I really did enjoy Wayward Witch. It was a fun and thrilling read, and it actually did a great job of allowing new readers to dive on in. It felt like Zoraida Cordova took the time to drop details and backstory here and there, all of which helped me follow along. More than that, it helped me enjoy the story and the characters within. “Listen to me. I love you, Rosie. You need to know that I love you and I'm going to do everything I can to keep you safe. But I need your help, or they're going to find us. You have to get up.” Wayward Witches is the third novel in this series, and as such it has a lot to get done in a limited amount of time. Not only is there a ton of stuff going on within this novel (all revolving around Rosie, as well as her family), but it has threads from the previous novels to wrap up as well. It's a book full of amazing characters, with great elements and worldbuilding. There's a lot of culture portrayed within it, all of which made the story come to life. I only got a glimpse at some of the other characters (again, I failed to read the first two books first), but it was enough to get my curiosity going. Meanwhile, I really did enjoy Rosie's perspective. She was a charismatic and sassy character, and it was basically impossible not to enjoy her journey because of it. All things considered, there was a lot going on in this book. Sometimes I had just a tiny bit of trouble following along, but honestly not as much as I would have expected (diving into the third book like I did). In particular, I found myself enchanted by the magic within this novel. More importantly, the amount of variety in magical abilities. It was impressive and showed how much thought Zoraida Cordova put into the world. If there's one thing I know, it's that I'm clearly going to have to go back and read the rest of this series. I regret not having read them in order, but at least I was still able to enjoy Wayward Witch. Check out more reviews over at Quirky Cat's Fat Stacks

    "There's always a new chosen one around the corner." I don't want it to be me. I want to read in my room, and fight with my sisters, and light candles at my alter and do my extra-credit homework. I wanted to fix my family, not the world. My family is my world. This is such a sad case of it's not you, it's me. There is so much I want to celebrate about Wayward Witch.

As a women with two sisters I love the dynamic between Lula, Alex & Rose. The first couple of chapters made me smile so much, I love their teasing and loving sibling dynamic. As we join Rose at the beginning of Wayward Witch she is struggling with her family brushing things over, pretending everything is fine when they've all been through so much. Rose wants the truth. She's also dealing with anxiety about her own bruja magic. On this adventure, Rose teams up with some fairy royals & other magical beings. One of these is Lin (I'm unsure on that spelling as I listened to the audiobook) - a brilliant rift-opening, brave-hearted, non-binary brujex. We also have a kickass magical princess, quick yay for women supporting women, and a studious & sweet prince. There is a mention of the bodily hygiene situation while on these crazy adventures, which I appreciated greatly (I mean don't we always wonder). I love Rose loving her body. It's not endless, unrealistic confidence; at one point she's uncomfortable about bathing in front of divinely stunning magical beings, because of course. Wayward Witch has a solid plot, particularly the ending. I adore this series, this world and these characters. I love Cordova's writing and storytelling and Almarie Guerra's audiobook narration. I was so very excited to read this book.. and I did enjoy it! But unfortunately, it was one of those where I was waiting for the story to really get started until I realised the action was happening, I just wasn't invested. Perhaps thanks to the sudden nature of the (view spoiler)[kidnap (hide spoiler)] - the plot swept away and left me scrambling behind. I want Rose to have the spotlight away from her fam, but I also missed them being together. My other problem was a couple of elements of this book felt similar to Labyrinth Lost, but a pale imitation. Something was missing for me in this one, such a shame! This was still a joy to read and I'm absolutely going to re-read this series someday. Plus, just saying, I'd totally buy two more books in this series - for Nova and (view spoiler)[Lin (hide spoiler)] . I can dream, works perfectly as a trilogy too. For a moment, I wonder if this is what Alex went through in Los Lagos. Where did she use the bathroom with Nova & Risha around? How did she handle always feeling like you spell like sweat? Did she have her period while she was there? Suddenly I have renewed respect for my sister and I regret never asking her.

She confronts him, but is suddely whisked away alongside him through a portal to the land of Adas, a fairy realm hidden in the Caribbean Sea. To get back home, Rose must work with a team to save the realm from the rot that has poisoned it. Content warnings: death, sacrifice, murder. I really enjoyed Rose as a character. She's young, and that shows, but that's not a bad thing by any means. Rose is a complicated character, struggling with new powers as well as living in a new place. These books really focus on family, though we really only see the rest of the Moritz fam at the start, and I did really miss that family element. This book focuses a lot on found family though, as Rose goes on an adventure with a whole new cast of characters. The people she meets are all fun, all from different realms and different species. One of the new people she meets is Lin, who uses they/them pronouns. I love that diversity is so easily written into this fantasy world, as it should be. Córdova just kills it every time. Plot wise this book is very similar to book one at it's base level: a Moritz sister goes into another realm and has to save people. But the execution is very different. Rose is different, and I really liked her. There is a lot going on in this book, and at times it felt like there were too many people talking, and too much going on. But once I got over the pacing the story was great. There is romance in this, but it's only a crush, which I really did enjoy. Rose is 15 and it felt like an accurate portrayal of 15. Overall I enjoyed this, but it definitely didn't feel like an ending. There are too many questions, and too many open doors for this to be a satisfying ending in my eyes. I really would love it if Córdova wrote a fourth book from Nova's perspective!

    This was a terrific end to a great series. This one centers on Rose, the youngest daughter. In the first book and for most of the second, we are told that Rose's power is to talk to spirit. It turns out that her power is very different. She can borrow and use the power of other brujas. This results in her and her father being snatched from their new home in Queens and transported to the fairy kingdom of Adas.

This results in her and her father being snatched from their new home in Queens and transported to the fairy kingdom of Adas. Which, it happens, was where her father was for all those years he was missing. As much as I enjoyed this, I was sorry that we were again in a story set so far from the family home. What I like best about these books are the family interactions. Lula, Alex, and Rose may be powerful brujas, but they're also teenage girls who squabble and borrow each other's clothing and drive their parents mad. A major message in this series is that family is not just blood. As Nova became a part of their family earlier in the series, here we meet Lin, who forms a close friendship with Rose when they both become guardians of Adas, chosen to fight the Rot which is destroying the kingdom. Lin is nonbinary and calls themself a brujex. Lin can open rifts, effectively teleporting. This is a book about healing. The guardians are sent off to take care of the Rot and heal the land. Rose's family isn't the only one broken. The King is as decadent and unconcerned about his people's welfare as Donald Trump and looks down on his children, Iris and Arco. Something needs to be fixed there. And Rose is tormented by the thought that she had a fight with her father before they were both captured and imprisoned. She's with the other guardians, but he's locked in a tower and she can't tell him she's sorry. Back in Queen, we have a scene of how this is affecting her mother and sisters. After all, this is the second time their husband/father has mysteriously disappeared. It's tough. This series is just full of so much good: the family, the new pantheon Cordova invents, the girls' powers and use of them, the Ecuadorean culture (and the acknowledgment that the kids born and growing up in America aren't necessarily going to embrace all of it or be as comfortable with the language), and the larger world as well. Bruja Born introduced us to other supernatural beings in this world. There are vampires, shape shifters, werewolves, and human Hunters. They all blend together in these splendid books.

    Thank you to the publishers and NetGalley for an eARC in exchange for an honest review. Wayward Witch is the third installment of the Brooklyn Bruja series. It follows the youngest of three sisters, Rose, as she has her Deathday to help control her newfound powers.

When she finds out her father's amnesia has been a ruse and is sucked into the fairy realm of Adas with him, will she be able to put her anger and hurt aside to be the hero foretold in Adas' prophecies? I freaking love these books! Of the three, I think this one takes the most time to really hook you, but to be fair, the author has yet another world to build as this is our first trip to Adas. Rose is such a complex character, and her youth adds to that complexity at times. As an adult, I sometimes forgot how young she really was as her sisters who the first two books follow are atleast 3-5 years older. The author did a great job writing appropriately for Rose's age, it just would have been helpful to have a few reminders of just how young she was thoughout. So much of this story shines. The world, the new characters, the way it wraps up this trilogy. I really love how the sisters don't end up insta married to their current love interest in the epilogue, I really love how the author left it open as they are so young and have so much of the world to see. I can't get enough of how the story merges with the Latino culture and the Gods and Goddesses of their Pantheon. Overall, 4 bright and shining stars from me, and this trilogy is not one to be missed. I would recommend it for ages 11 and up, some of it could be hard for younger readers to keep entertained but if they stick with it they won't be disappointed. What a great trilogy!

But when a force from her father's past comes and spirits them away to Adas, Rose finds herself in the position of potential savior of a world being consumed by a supernatural rot, all the while confronting the anger and hurt that has resided inside of her for so long. Wayward Witch was a good book, but it didn't really live up to my expectations. I will say I liked Rose's character at the beginning and found her to be a sympathetic character who has endured so much trauma as a result of the mistakes her sisters have made. Her struggle to balance her anger towards them and her love for her family shows how complicated issues of trauma between family members can be. I also love the vibrancy of Latinx culture and lore that Cordova brings to life. The lore of The Bastard King of Adas and the world it takes place in are vibrantly described and was really my favorite part of both this book and this series. I also enjoyed Lin's character and the inclusion Cordova brought to the table with their character's arc. However, something about the writing style and the pacing of this book had me struggling to maintain interest in this story, and there were several plot threads that were left unresolved. I also didn't feel like I got a satisfying conclusion of the story of the Mortiz sisters. So it was enjoyable, but that enjoyability waned as the novel went on.

    I loved the first two books in this series and have been waiting eagerly for this third and most likely final story. It had been a while since I’d read them though it seems, so there was a bit about Rose that I didn’t necessarily remember from before. As with other books like this during this crazy pandemic time, my mind had a bit of a struggle keeping on track with the story, so that is part of why I gave it 4 stars probably. The world the author wrote for us in this book was beautiful and vivid I loved the first two books in this series and have been waiting eagerly for this third and most likely final story.

The world the author wrote for us in this book was beautiful and vivid and so colorful. I know part of the time it took me to read was spent stopping and trying to make pictures in my mind by rereading the details in the descriptions of each of the Adas, or fairies of this world that Rose ends up in with her father. The book began and I wanted to shake Rose for doubting everyone, but of course like her sisters she had to cast a spell that would lead to a little bit different result than she’d hoped. She found out that there may be something to her feelings. And when she and her father got taken to the other world we learned just what her father had actually been through in his time when he’d been lost there before, and it made sense why he’d been so withdrawn and different when he’d come back and even still after he seemed to be getting back as part of the family. All the characters we met were unique and so full of life, and made the story so much more. I also did really like the way the whole debacle was solved in the end, a very creative way that I was unsure how it would even happen until it did. And the extra things Rose learned and gained in the land of Adas made the book that much better. Now while I think this is the final book in the series I have to wonder if we will get a book for one of the characters from the first book, Nova. I’d love to see what happens to him on the path he chooses at the beginning of this book.

    I've been following the Brooklyn Brujas for a long time now, and I'm so happy with the conclusion to this series. Rose was always there in the backseat through her sisters adventures. Being the youngest, is easy being read as the "good girl". Her conflict with her newfound power and with her anxiety is really good. Feels good to follow a coming of age story for a magic latina girl. As I did with the rest of the series, I loved the whole worldbuilding and mythology of the world.
