If you re undocumented you re unwritten Embrace that You re saying if no one s told my story before I get to tell it the way I want Exactly 842020 If you re a fan of Argentinian werewolves elemental witches and alternate dimensions you re in LUCK bc this book just dropped today 35 stars Steeped in South American mythology a defiant challenge of sexism and misogyny exploring the struggles faced by undocumented immigrants Lobizona is unlike ANY story I ve ever read before Manuela Azul is an undocumented immigrant All her life she s had to be invisible she never attended school never made friends But when ICE arrests her mother and someone attacks her found grandmother Manu s forced to go on the run what she never expected was to stumble upon a magical academy built on ancient ruins deep in the Everglades At El Laberinto Manu s thrown into a wholly fantastical world Am I the only one who got Luminous by Dawn Metcalf vibes The Septimus are a society of brujaswitches and lobiz nwerewolves who travel to another dimension Lunaris every full moon Here there exists gorgeous magic think edible fizzy flowers a sentient mother tree filled with books and a sport combining soccer and elemental pro bending from Legend of Korra but also extreme danger Just as Manu discovers someplace she might belong with people she s beginning to love she realizes that her existence in Lunaris is deemed as illegal as it was in Miami There s something so compulsively readable about Romina Garber s writing It isn t complex actually kinda purple at times ngl but I still found myself propelled to read on The world building in this novel is uniue and enthralling and I adored the Argentine lore woven into the magical realism Not to mention I got SO HUNGRY reading this book someone take me to Buenos Aires ASAP so I can get my hands on some enchanted mate and milanesasLobizona tackles themes of alienation and belonging with nuance It resonated a lot with me and will with anyone who s ever found themselves straddling two worlds be it culture country race or anything else Manu grapples with the freedom and life or death risks of living honestly if she comes out as the world s only lobizona she won t have to lie any She ll show others that it s possible to defy convention But and this hit me really hard Manu also realizes that she shouldn t have to martyr herself to achieve the life she s always wanted Why settle for being a son of the system when you can mother a movement HOWEVER there were a couple things I found really off putting For one I didn t care for the waxing poetic about their magical eyes rose uartz and sapphire and Mars red just sound SO CHEESY At one point Manu s are literally described as orbiting golden galaxies and I cringed so hard The insta attraction between Manu and Tiago was bleh and I was mostly unsympathetic to their love triangle with Cata because the angst could ve been so easily avoided if Manu just talked to her friends about her thoughtsfeelings instead of being rude and running away For a character who showed so much complexity when coming to terms her identity Manu was frustratingly juvenile at times tooThere was also the fact that this book is heavy heavy heavy on the Chosen One tropeyness Manu s the only one of her kind and she masters literally everything possible WITHOUT HAVING EVER DONE IT BEFORE She s a star Septibol player and finds an elusive rare flower and is Tiago s one true love and also has eNviABLE CuRVES bc ofc She perfectly controls her emotional magic and ultra enhanced senses without even trying That being said the good about this book overshadows the bad I loved that the women in Lobizona challenge the patriarchal and heterosexual structure of Septimus society Saysa in particular is such an inspiring budding activist The characters speak openly about menstruation and the laws that enforce rigid gender roles for brujas and lobiz n They struggle to figure out what s right in a world that uashes any sort of difference to be free or safeUltimately with adventure and lush magic this book carves out a space for the marginal and the complex People of two worlds or none at all As Saysa says Now go forth and shatter every convention Thank you NetGalley and St Martin s Press for this magical ARC in exchange for an honest review

REVIEW ↠ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Õ Romina Garber CHARACTERS Lobizona Wolves of No World #1 108 Romina Garber Õ 8 CHARACTERS Some people ARE illegalLobizonas do NOT existBoth of these statements are falseManuela Azul has been crammed into an existence that feels too small for her As an undocumented immigrant who's on the run from her father's Argentine crime family Manu is confined to a small apartment and a small life in Miami FloridaUntil Manu's protective bubble is shatteredHer surrog. find this review others on my blog The beginning of Lobizona is nightmarishManuela Azul s life is laden with eggshells and she walked on tremulously fraying a little every time she had to put on her mirrored sunglasses to hide the unnatural bright yellow engulfing her eyes from the whites to the irises the dread and fear rising through the cracks The possibility of being snapped up by ICE or of her father s past catching up to her first is always there hovering in the air like an axe Her whole life Manu had waited for them to find her and her mother She never doubted that they wouldAnd then they didAlone Manu sets out to look for answers to the thousand uestions circling inside her head like harpies and finds a magical school for witches and lobizones Argentinian werewolves For years Manu s eyes were a strange fact she had to bend her life around yet here is a place where she fit with the familiar comfort of a well worn coat But Manu s lies about her family are as thin as a zither string and when her father s real identity is dragged to the fore the truth of it blows out the embers of hope that let Manu believe she finally had somewhere she could call homeYoung adult fantasy gets another jolt of diversity with Lobizona a vibrant representation of Argentinian culture and folklore One of the things I relish most in fiction is when fantasy is interwoven with our world and its timeline Lobizona dwells in the low lit overlap of myth and reality and the way it owns that space is spellbinding The notion of werewolves and witches is exhilarating and the authors milks it for all its considerable worth A book like Lobizona doesn t undo any clich s it deals in them and while it s not particularly complex or unpredictable it perfectly counterbalances the elaborate world building elements Garber has managedThe strength of the novel however lies in its thematic gravity the author touches upon a smorgasbord of topics that inform many conversations today race immigration prejudice and the passionate politics of the book come through with vivid clarity because we re lost inside the experiences of its protagonists There s a sympathetic sense of dislocation and dread that permeates every corner of the story and which kept my interest firmly moored to the page Manu has lost the unbruised part of herself when she lost her freedom to exist without the constant fear of being wrenched away from her home It s the sort of truth that one can say only when they re looking away from it offhand distracted because to meet its eye is enough to curdle your blood But hope is small enough to nest within Manu s palm and seeing all her courage pile itself hand over hand was a welcome respiteAll in all this was solid debut ko fi blog twitter tumblr
