Now the adventure and mystery really start! You don’t know anything!
Continuation of “The Twelve Doors” series. NOW IN ENGLISH! #1 bestseller in Spain, Mexico and the United States (Spanish Version). #1 bestseller historical thriller and mystery series in Spain for the last two years. More than 600.000 readers
IMPORTANT: This is the third book of the saga. You need to have read “The Twelve Doors (Part I)” and “Nothing Is What It Seems (Part II).”
Two stories narrated in parallel. The first one is about the Holy Inquisition in Spain, where the main characters are the European humanists Luis Vives, among Erasmus of Rotterdam and Thomas More. All the characters lived in their time period, and every narrated fact occurred in reality. The second story stars a group of friends from the actual Valencia that discover that the mystery they thought was solved, in reality, has just started.
Their main characters are still the historian Rebecca Mercader and her mysterious friend Carlota Penella, whose fame has surpassed the novel series itself. It isn’t strange because they are among the most Intelligent women in Europe.
The reader changes the story every 4-6 pages. Different characters and tales are separated by more than six hundred years. It looks like two novels in one. The reader starts asking himself, why am I reading two stories with no apparent connections? The simple answer is that you will figure it out if you keep reading. Maybe they have more connections than you think, and nothing is what it seems.
Mystery, thriller and real history, a cocktail that makes the universe of ‘The Twelve Doors’ a novel series that is entertaining and easy to read that won’t allow you to put the book down.
(Valencia, Spain, 1966, currently living in IRELAND)
An excerpt from an interview from Tribuna Libre
Q: Why the title?
A: It is a literal quote from the Valencian, Spanish and European humanist, Luis Vives, after a reflexión about the Spanish Inquisition. In fact, he is one of the main characters of my next novels. The exact quote was, “Everything is so dark and the night covers me.”
Q: Now you are writing about the Inquisition?
A: Yes. In my two first novels, the historical background was the life of the Jews in the aljama of Valencia, in Spain at the end of the XIV century. In this book, we hop to the first quarter of the XVI century, with the acción of the Tribunal of the Holy Office of the Inquisition of Spain. The centuries go by, but the situation of the Jewish does not improve; in fact, and it was already difficult, it gets worse.
Q: Is the actual plot, the one referring to the XXI century, still the same?
A: yes. The main characters are still the same, with some new additions, but the surprises are not going to stop and they are very important.
Q: Now, let’s talk about you. You studied an MBA degree, learned languages… to finish up being a politician and a writer.
A: Hahahaha, if you say it like that, it seems like I’ve been doing worse, right? Having been a councilman in my hometown for more than six years, apart from being an honor, is a vocation just as being a writer.
Be prepared to enjoy the starting of the true series plot.
