It's Live!! Cover Reveal: LABYRINTH LOST by Zoraida Córdova + Giveaway (US Only)
Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for LABYRINTH LOST by Zoraida Córdova, releasing September 6, 2016 from Sourcebooks Fire. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Zoraida:
Thank you for stopping by the LABYRINTH LOST cover reveal. This is my seventh traditionally published book, and my fourth YA fantasy. LABYRINTH LOST is a book that has been on my mind for many, many years. I've always wanted to tell the story of a matriarch of witches. I especially wanted to tell the story of a girl with extraordinary power, and how that power is linked to family.
Here the cover captures the moment of Alex's Deathday. For a bruja (witch), the Deathday is synonymous to a human's Sweet 16 or quinceañera. It is a magical coming of age. In this book, the roots of the ceremony are linked to El Dia de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead).
One of my favorite parts of the cover is the title font. It captures the light often referenced in the novel. The look on Alex's face is a cross between fear and wonder.
I truly can't wait for you to read this book. It is full of magic, adventure, heartbreak, lies, life and loss, love and hope.

I've always been fascinated with the day of dead holiday, and I loved the beautiful creatures series. I bet this will be a great read.
I love the bruja story! I never read anything like that so this will be good. A witch story is always good, but I'm looking for something original and this sounds amazing.
The cover is both terrifying and beautiful which matches the exciting and unique synopsis well. Thanks for introducing me to this book!
I love this cover! I think the bright colors and the look on the face is so mesmerizing. I think the use of yellow/gold was terrific. After reading the synopsis, I can't wait to read this!
