Cece Rios lives with her parents and older sister Juana in Tierra Del Sol, where dangerous criaturas roam the desert. When Juana is kidnapped by El Sombrerón, a dark criatura, Cece feels responsible and is determined to do whatever she can to get her sister back. But in order to get to where Juana is, though, in Devil's Alley, Cece will need to become a bruja and capture a criatura's soul. Cece doesn't want to become a bruja, but she will do whatever it takes - and it turns out that Coyote, the Great Namer, owes her a favor for a previous kindness. Cece learns to question the legends, myths, and stories that she has grown up with - about criaturas, curanderas, brujas, and herself. Cece finds that she is fierce, and that her water-soul is no less powerful than the fire-soul her family has always wished she had.

Quotes

No matter where I went, my soul didn't seem to have what people wanted. (65)

[Coyote's] presence was like wearing a pair of new, stiff gloves, both attached to me and not. (101)

"Familia is life. Without it, there is nothing, and I am nothing." (155)

Everyone wanted fire from me, but my soul was cursed with water. (158)

"I know a lot of my last life's story, but that's all it is to me. A story. It doesn't even feel like I lived the things I did then, even if I remember parts of it....I don't have a personal connection to it. Just facts...Life I read pieces of my own history book." (Coyote to Cece, 196)

I was sick of feeling like who I was....was somehow not acceptable. Because if I was doing the right thing, if I was following all the goodness I believed in, that was good enough. (219)

That wasn't the way our legends went at all. I wondered, silently, what other history we'd rewritten. (249)

"The Great Namer has always been a friend to Naked Man when we have been a friend to him." (Dominga del Sol to Cece, 264)

...when people are in pain, they do terrible things to try to bandage their broken hearts. (267)

Ideas become more powerful when you give them words. (320)

"It's okay to be afraid. As long as you don't let it stop you from being the best of who you truly are." (Cece to Juana, 324) ( )

Cece Rios and the Desert of Souls is an engaging, adventurous, and heartfelt story about a girl who lives in a village haunted by fear and traditions—they must fight brujas (witches) who steal souls, and criaturas (creatures) and dark spirits that prey on the people. When 12-year old Cece accidentally gets her older sister stolen by El Sombrerón, she decides to fight fire with fire and become a bruja to rescue her sister. She has to learn how to control the souls of criaturas and win bruja fights, but something in her rebels against the requisite cruelty. Using compassion and love, Cece befriends and allies herself with an unlikely group of criaturas, including the original Coyote, Namer of beings. With their help and her unique magic, she must find a way to defeat her enemies without losing her own soul.

I loved how this story wove in Mexican myths, but even more, how Cece repeatedly found just the right and satisfying twist to solve each problem she faced. Her friendship with the criaturas and her relationship with her family were also so well-written. A thoroughly engrossing book that will fly off the shelves. ( )
