The Witch Owl Parliament (Clockwork Curandera)
When apprentice shaman Cristina Franco is killed by witch owls, her brother Enrique brings her back to life with alchemy and engineering. Now partly mechanical, she vows to protect the Republic of Santander against the supernatural attacks rocking the country––even though her very existence is an abomination to its citizens.
But to do so requires the green magic Cristina has trained to wield. Will she still have access to that vital power now that her body and soul have been forever altered? Can it be used to fight as well as heal? When groups of refugees and indigenous people begin to disappear, Cristina has to set her doubts aside and embrace her new destiny.
In the first volume of the Clockwork Curandera trilogy, Mexican American creatives David Bowles and Raúl the Third combine their unique talents and vision to craft a compelling new world in which Mesoamerican magic and steampunk technology co-exist, sometimes manipulated by the rich and powerful for nefarious ends. — Cover image and summary via Goodreads
