“Cazadora is filled with a magic, culture, and language readers of fantasy and magical realism will devour where Garber brings front and center social themes of identity and finding a place to belong.”Cecelia Beckman, Sheaf & Ink
From the Publisher:
In Cazadora, the follow-up to Lobizona, Romina Garber continues to weave Argentine folklore and real-world issues into a haunting, fantastical, and romantic story that will reunite readers with Manu and her friends as they continue to fight for a better future.
My Review: Cazadora
Cazadora is a novel that surprised me.
From the opening pages, readers are in pace with Manu as she and her friends flee for their lives. On the run from the Cazadora (the authorities of Garber’s magical world), we race with Manu across the map, diving deeper into the realm Garber has vividly created. Where we begin to see how magic works. Specifically the lore behind the magic along with a better understanding of the rules in order to wield and master it.
Manu’s on the run, she’s facing prejudice and bigotries within the magical community. Seen as other, a hybrid of human’s an werewolves, Manu only wants to find a place to belong. And throughout, we see how Manu’s not the only one who wants acceptance. How even her friends can’t fully embrace themselves without the consequences of being shunned or outcast. Meanwhile, the social themes are poignant. Readers will experience a revolution and Manu is the figurehead until things start going horribly wrong.
A Few Last Thoughts
With an ending I was not expecting, I wasn’t sure if Garber was leaving this open for a third book. It notably feels like it should. My hope is there will be a third book where Garber is able to fulfill the revolution and make a change in the archaic and rigid beliefs in identity and gender.
A delicious romance, a richly imagined Latinx world, and characters who leap off the page in their magic and strength, Cazadora will absorb readers in the continued Argentinian folklore and leave us with a hope for a concluding book.
Happy Reading ̴ Cece
