Characters ß Lobizona Wolves of No World #1 109 Romina Garber Þ 9 Read & download Characters Lobizona Wolves of No World #1 Ate grandmother is attacked lifelong lies are exposed and her mother is arrested by ICE Without a home without answers and finally without shackles Manu investigates the only clue she has about her past a mysterious Z emblem which leads her to a secret world buried within our own A world connected to her dead father and his criminal past A world straight out of Arg Hearing that Lobizona was an Argentinian werewolf story was enough to convince me I d love this book Sadly it turned out to be a weak contemporary and an even weaker fantasy Sometimes reality strays so far from what s rational that we can only explain it through fantasy What is this book about Manu and her mother are undocumented immigrants Running from their father s life of crime in Argentina led them to the confinement of a cramped apartment in Miami Florida Manu is unable to leave the apartment seeing as her pupils are shaped as stars and her eyes shine a vibrant yellow When her mother is arrested and taken to a detention center to be deported Manu narrowly escapes finding herself caught up in a world of werewolves and witches her only hope of uncovering her past and saving her mother In terms of the fantasy aspect nothing of note takes place until a third into the book Before then all we hear is constant descriptions of Manu s bizarre eyes I found myself undeniably disappointed with the way the chosen one plot unfolded It was frustrating and boring to read about Manu perfecting anything magic related on her first tryLove triangles don t typically bother me and neither did the one in Lobizona I didn t care for the characters meaning Manu s love life was of little concern to me The insta love and miscommunication was painful thoughIt took me about 200 pages to start enjoying Lobizona even mildly which says a lot Within the first couple of chapters clusters of cultural references were being listed and repeated without explanation making it hard for me to absorb the story Paragraphs of dialogue were freuently included without english translation which left me a non latino reader feeling stranded Having to stop and translate whole chunks of dialogue throughout the entire book took away from my reading experience largely It was unfortunate that the cultural aspect felt so forced to me whereas in stories like Furia I was able to experience and appreciate the Argentinian culture with ease The thing I did like about Lobizona was the challenging of gender roles and conversations surrounding misogyny and sexism The women in this novel never hesitated to speak up and think for themselves which I appreciate
