A Not So Magical Day Signed Copy
I was pleased to discover in this novella a memorable protagonist I first met in previous novellas from Estrada’s La Bruja del barrio Loco series. Mona, feisty and head-strong, meets her match in Sally, a fellow apprentice of time. One masters different spells than the other as they both try to earn praise from their mentor. When Mona’s life is threatened by an enemy she doesn’t know about, she and Sally must unite to defeat it. Of course, Estrada throws in an unexpected surprise from our Latin folklore and the adventure begins. Suspenseful, entertaining, and magical—this author knows how to deliver. --Carmen Baca, Author of La Quincearñera
Mona and Sally are learning to master a new spell, when their mentors, ‘Ama and La Muerte, leave them alone for two days. Nothing is going right for Mona, and she watches with consternation as Sally masters every subject. To make matters worse, the pair is attacked by a supernatural foe.
Will they be able to put their differences aside? Or, will they die before their guardians return?
