A fantastically magical YA debut from Vanessa Montalban, A Tall Dark Trouble casts the perfect spell on readers. Set in present day Miami and 1980s Cuba, the de Armas women are haunted by a curse that ruins any chance at love. When the twins start having premonitions of a potential murderer targeting brujas, they are forced to reckon with their magic to save their family. An absolutely thrilling debut!

— Katie

Raised to fear their magic, twin witches begin receiving premonitions of a killer targeting brujas and must embrace their powers to save lives . . . before it's too late. The high-stakes worldbuilding of Divine Rivals meets the witchy romance of Practical Magic in Vanessa Montalban's thrilling YA Latine fantasy debut.

In contemporary Miami, twins Delfi and Lela are haunted by a family curse that poisons any chance at romantic love. It's no wonder their mother forbids them from getting involved with magic. When Lela and Delfi receive premonitions of a mysterious killer targeting brujas, however, the sisters must embrace their emerging powers to save innocent lives. Teaming up with their best friend Ethan and brooding detective-in-training Andres, Delfi and Lela set out to catch a murderer on a dangerous hunt that will force them to confront the dark secrets of their family's past.

Meanwhile, in 1980s Cuba, Anita de Armas whispers to the spirits for mercy--not for herself, but for the victims of her mother's cult. She's desperate to rid herself of her power, which manifests as inky shadows and an ability to speak to the dead. As political tensions rise and Anita's cult initiation draws near, she must make a decision that could change not only her fate, but the fate of the nation.

Lela, Delfi, and Anita's stories intertwine in a thrilling fantasy that spans oceans and generations as each woman steps into her power, refusing to be subdued by any person or curse.
