Sierra Santiago is everything! Strong, vulnerable, complex. Her relationships with her family and friends are the grounding force of this supernatural story. Older brings Latin American mystical forces to the forefront for an original take on the Urban Fantasy genre. He incorporates, intrigue, betrayal, paranoia, and social justice issues. It is also refreshing to see a lady of color be the girl discovering all kinds of magical powers, in a genre that has been begging for more diverse mirroring for a long time. Highly Recommend!
