Praise

“Powerfully evokes the time and place.”—Publishers Weekly

“Robust…Exciting…[This] multifaceted look at Gypsy life and morality is vivid and memorable.”—Booklist
 
“Falcones’ vivid portrait of gypsy culture—a proud, amoral and unabashedly sensual challenge to puritanical Spanish Catholicism—maintains interest as the plot twists on and on….Colorful…[With] a slam-bang finale.”—Kirkus 


Praise for Ildefonso Falcones’ Cathedral of the Sea

“Believable and enthralling…So beautifully structured that the last sixty pages detonate like a string of firecrackers.” — Diana Gabaldon, The Washington Post
 
 “Fantastic…The passion and heartache, as well as the grit and grime, of medieval Spain come alive.”—USA Today
 
An exciting, very readable adventure novel, enriched by realistic descriptions.”—The Independent (UK)
 
“[An] absorbing epic…Dizzying…Falcones’s rich portrait of medieval society is fascinating.”
Publishers Weekly

“With Cathedral of the Sea, Ildefonso Falcones…has become Spain’s new Dan Brown.”
El Mundo
