<h2>Una novela de amor, misterio, intriga y un secreto que cambiará sus vidas</h2><br /><h3>BEST SELLER en Amazon.com en Juvenil</h3><br />Después de pasados varios años, Lucía vuelve a la isla que la vio nacer y crecer. Su regreso transcurre entre recuerdos, reflexiones, un corazón roto y muchas preguntas. Lo único que se hace evidente, es la incertidumbre que envuelve cada cosa que piensa. Durante toda su vida, ha tenido que aprender a vivir con una sensibilidad extraordinaria que, de cierta manera, la ha unido de manera especial a sus prójimos, pero a la vez, la separa de todos. De casi todos. Ahora, un fracaso amoroso la obliga a replantearse su vida entera, debatiéndose entre la esperanza y el desengaño: tras una fuerte discusión, dejó el apartamento que compartía con el amor de su vida, Darío, frustrada por el aparente enfriamiento de su relación. Sin embargo, poco se imagina lo que le depara el destino en este regreso a la isla, que la enfrentará con viejos demonios y probará su misma humanidad.<br />"Esta novela está muy bien escrita y las descripciones de los estados de ánimo de los personajes principales son un lujo, ya que el autor los describe como si los sintiera el lector" (lector de Amazon)<br /><br /><br /><br />Tags: novelas en español, libros en español, misterio<br /><br /><br />

<p>The international bestseller and debut novel by teenage author and classical musician Stefan Bachmann is part murder mystery, part gothic fantasy, part clockwork adventure. Best-selling author Rick Riordan said of <em>The Peculiar</em>, "Stefan Bachmann breathes fresh life into ancient magic."</p><p><em>Don't get yourself noticed and you won't get yourself hanged.</em> In the faery slums of Bath, Bartholomew and his little sister Hettie live by these words. Bartholomew and Hettie are Peculiars, and neither faeries nor humans want anything to do with them. But when Peculiars start showing up in London murdered and covered with red tattoos, Bartholomew breaks all the rules and gets himself noticed. Full of magic, dazzling inventions, and intriguing characters such as Mr. Jelliby and Lord Lickerish, this story of friendship, bravery, and nonstop action adventure was hailed by best-selling author Christopher Paolini as "swift, strong, and entertaining. Highly recommended." <em>The Peculiar</em> ends with a spectacular cliff-hanger, and the story concludes in <em>The Whatnot</em>. </p>
