OPINIÓN: A great book, a mix within fantasy and science fiction. It has a bit of a methapor but it's really entretaining. Laura Gallego writes again about divinites that her characters worship, Tara in this case, it's important in the book but she writes it like something natural so she isn't focusing all the tiem in an invented religion.

Bowen's island by Cesar Mallorquí: 1920. It started with the murder of the english sailor Jeremiah Perkins in Havoysund, in a small Norwegian pourt in the Artic, and with the mysterious package that, before he died, Perkins sent to Lady Elisabeth Faraday. Or maybe the story started before when some strange relics were found in a medieval crypt.Because it was one of that imposible relics who made that the profesor Ulises Zarco, director of the geography asociation SIGMA, embarked on an unmaginable adventure on the Saint Michel.Because, like Sherlock Holmes said: «When you have removed the imposible, what's left, however improbable,must be the truth.».
