The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books has reviewed Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Córdova for their September 2016 issue .
“Córdova pulls elements from Greek mythology and Spanish and Latin American legends to craft a memorable world in Los Lagos, a supernatural realm that is as fascinating as it is threatening. The history and customs of Alex’s family’s type of witchery are also carefully constructed, giving readers a complete world to sink into with satisfaction and wonder.”

“This work is a magical journey from start to finish... A compelling must-have for teens.”—School Library Journal, STARRED review
"Córdova’s (the Vicious Deep series) magic-infused, delightfully dark story introduces readers to an engrossing, Latin American–inspired fantasy setting and an irresistible heroine.” —Publishers Weekly
"Although YA readers will likely be used to books featuring magic, Córdova has created something distinct with cantos, Deathday celebrations and the fantastical in-between realm of Los Lagos. Córdova’s rich exploration of Latin American culture, her healthy portrayal of bisexuality and her unique voice allow this novel to stand out among its many peers.” —RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars
"This succeeds with its lush use of Latin American mythologies, an unexpected love story, and, above all, in Alex’s complicated relationship with her family. Alex is a necessary heroine, and this dark fantasy nicely paves the way for a sequel.” -Booklist
