The Brujita of Washington Heights: Awakening
E. L. Oliver
(CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform, June 14, 2016)
A fun, exciting young-adult supernatural adventure, The Brujita of Washington Heights takes you inside the fantastical world of a sixteen-year-old Latina girl living in the Washington Heights area of New York City. Sofie Rios has grown up listening to the stories of how her family was once tied to a clan of powerful witches. But to Sofie the stories so often shared were exactly that, stories with nothing remotely real about them. That was until she experiences her very first awakening—an awakening prompted by the return of Salazar Montenegro, the demon responsible for the family’s magical demise. With the lives of her loved ones hanging in the balance, Sofie—along with the help of Sebastian, her crazy cousin Leslie, and her newly discovered witch friends—must reclaim her family’s power and stop Salazar in his tracks. These young witches will take you on a supernatural journey through many of the Washington Heights landmarks, such as the Cloisters museum, the Little Red Lighthouse, and so much more. They will transform uptown Manhattan into nothing less than a supernatural sanctuary.
