Review of The Sunlit Ruins by Andrea Septien

Ada and Miry didn’t mean to start a city-wide catastrophe.

Really, they didn’t.

But when a family trip goes awry, the two Mexican-American cousins from opposite sides of the border accidentally unleash an evil spirit from centuries past. The incident unlocks latent magical powers within the girls, who now have to figure out what’s going on.

Easier said than done.

The only things Ada and Miry know are that the spirit is tied to the pyramids of Teotihuacán, an ancient and abandoned civilization, and that there is only one organization that can help them. The Archivists of Teotihuacán.

With only a scant trail of clues to guide them, Ada and Miry must journey across Mexico City, uncover the origin of their powers, and try to reseal the spirit they’ve awoken.

But the hardest challenge of all?

Getting along with family.


My Review: 5 STARS

I picked this up because I loved the cover and the sound of the story called to me. I ended up diving into it and only stopping because I had to have some sleep. I adored the characters, the two girls Ada and Miry were so well formed and written that they stayed as two separate characters even with the similarities between the two of them. I loved the lore, the world, the backstory and all of it so perfectly weaved into the story that you couldn’t help but keep turning the pages to find out more about where the story was going and how it was going to end. A series to watch and one I very much recommend!
