Welcome to First Line Friday, where we share the first line in a book.
For this week, I’ll be following Stacy’s amazing idea of doing teasers for upcoming books. Our book for this Friday is Bruja Born by Zoraida Córdova.
Now, I’m going to stretch the rules a bit. I’m going to add the first two sentences, as the first sentence is only five words long. Also, this is the sequel to Labyrinth Lost, so I highly recommend checking out that book. It’s fantastic!
“This is a love story. At least, it was, before my sister sent me to hell.”
Whoa, I know right? How would you react if your family member sent you to hell? If you’re curious as to how that even happened, I encourage you to read Labyrinth Lost!
The synopsis for Bruja Born is below. It does contain some spoilers, but not too many, from the first book.
Synopsis of Bruja Born by Zoraida Córdova
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’ll be posting my review of Bruja Born this weekend, so stay tuned! 🙂
