Nicely written, and a book I would gladly recommend for readers who want to expand into a wider range of science fiction authors. This book was a delightful surprise and promises to set up other literary entries.

The book is AMAZING. It transports you in that magical realism way that is so special to Latin American writers.

Angela is an Anthropology student at the University of Santiago who goes literally to the end of the world to a small and scary fishing village in Patagonia, to rescue her best friend (who may or may not deserve rescuing!). In the midst of horror and grave danger (is there any other kind?) and at great risk to all involved she also finds true love.

This is a story for Young Adults, I guess, but I think it is for readers of all ages (because I loved it and I am a few light years away from being a “Young Adult!”)

It is refreshing and rare to have a young woman as the hero: She is smart, brave, up to the physical challenges, in serious love, and fiercely loyal!

You’ll love it!
Like Nancy Drew on steroids!


Well done! No more to add. Jose Ignacio’s writing is amazing and the trilogy was worth reading.

Great read for young people and adults. Magic realism from the new millennium. The plot develops very fast and engulfs the reader from the first page. I recommend it!

José Ignacio Valenzuela has achieved with this trilogy something very difficult: a book series which is pleasant because of its storyline, full of constant action, fantasy and mystery, but also one which is suggestive to the eternal hero’s journey (…) It will not only captivate young readers but everybody who enjoys reading adventure stories.
