Nothing says Happy Birthday like summoning the spirits of your dead relatives.
I fall to my knees. Shattered glass, melted candles and the outline of scorched feathers are all that surround me. Every single person who was in my house – my entire family — is gone.
Alex is a bruja, the most powerful witch in a generation…and she hates magic. At her Deathday celebration, Alex performs a spell to rid herself of her power. But it backfires. Her whole family vanishes into thin air, leaving her alone with Nova, a brujo boy she can’t trust. A boy whose intentions are as dark as the strange markings on his skin.
The only way to get her family back is to travel with Nova to Los Lagos, a land in-between, as dark as Limbo and as strange as Wonderland…
Strega Babe was founded by Dakota Hendrix, a Brooklyn based queer, non binary witch who’s practice is based at the crossroads of their heritage.
Their mother’s line was steeped in Southern Folk Magic, Hoodoo, Conjure. Their father’s line was made up of Strega, practitioners of Italian Catholic Folk Magic/Witchcraft.
Both of these traditions are of “the lower class” - poor people, peasants, folk who survive. This is practical magic at its most creative and it’s most effective. No fancy, frivolous, lavish words, rituals, tools or ingredients needed.
